Time's Up-Do You Know Where Your Windows Server 2012 Upgrade Is?

Don’t Expose Your Organization to the Unnecessary Risks

by Jonathan Clark | 06.08.15

Windows Server 2003 has been a reliable workhorse for over a decade, a bastion of corporate computing available in multiple editions targeted toward particular sizes and types of business. But on July 14, Microsoft will stop releasing critical patches for it. According to research from endpoint threat prevention, detection, and response firm Bit9 + Carbon Black, nearly one in three enterprises (30%) plan to continue to run Windows Server 2003 after the July 14 deadline, leaving an estimated 2.7 million servers unprotected. The study polled 500 enterprises in the United Kingdom and the United States and found that more than half of the enterprises surveyed did not know when the end-of-life deadline is.

Don’t be that company.
