A significant portion of the country’s businesses still rely on old, dead operating systems, which puts them at grave cybersecurity risk.
End-of-Live System and Obsolete OS Hosting from Cloudstar is the solution.
Research by Kaspersky found that four in ten of very small businesses (VSB), and roughly half of small and medium-sized businesses (SMB), still rely on operating systems such as Windows XP or Windows 7 which are nearing their end of life. Many still are forced to run dangerously outdated server operating systems, some dating back to the 1990’s such as Windows NT, or Novell Netware.
Sometimes however, there are specific reasons why business must continue forward running these outdated operating systems. Legacy line of business applications, custom software that cost millions to write, tends to drive the decision.
Security is not only the biggest concern. Often times, as employees retire, knowledge is lost, and today’s IT professionals simply aren’t trained on 30 year old technology- Hardware begins to fail, placing these companies between a rock and a hard place.
