Window 10 Pro Devices
Outdated Devices Could Be Costing Your Business
Windows 7 support has ended—and Office 2010 support ends soon. Don’t rely on outdated devices to protect and advance your business—it’s time to upgrade to new, modern devices with Windows 10, Office, and the Intel vPro® platform.1 Modern devices will allow your business to:
Help keep files secure
With Windows 10, it’s estimated that security events requiring IT support are reduced or avoided by up to 33%.7 The new Intel® Hardware Shield helps reduce the BIOS as an attack surface—in fact, 75% of IT managers surveyed reported Intel vPro® platform-based devices are more secure.8
Reduce overall cost of ownership
PCs older than four years can cost 1.5x as much in repairs in addition to maintenance costs.9,10 In fact, 77% of IT managers surveyed reported that new devices with the Intel vPro® platform and Windows 10 are easier to manage.11 Plus, transitioning to updated devices has never been easier—Windows 10 is compatible with 99% of Windows 7 apps,11 and the future-forward foundations of new, modern devices are built to efficiently support the regular cadence of Windows 10 updates.

Windows 7 End of Support Is HereIt’s something you’ve been hearing about for a while—yet legacy systems may still remain active inside your organization. After all, these PCs still operate and your employees remain productive, right? Listen to this podcast where we sit down with Microsoft experts and uncover the true cost of delaying an upgrade.
No PC Is Complete without OfficeSupport for Office 2010 is ending in October 2020. Now is the time to consider the Office solution that best fits your next PC upgrade, whether it’s a one-time purchase (Office 2019) or subscription-based Office (Office 365/Microsoft 365) for your business.

Modern devices powered by Intel vPro® save time and money with improved security (33% reduction in security incidents),7 faster performance (up to 65% better performance),3,5,15 a speedy experience (1.3x faster multitasking),3,4,5 and battery life for a full workday.6
Yes, you can upgrade compatible Windows 7 PCs with a full license. To take advantage of the latest hardware capabilities, we recommend moving to a new PC with Windows 10.
Yes, you can continue to use Windows 7. As support ended January 14, 2020, your PC is more vulnerable to security risks. Windows will operate, but you will not receive security and feature updates.
Windows 7 can still be installed and activated after support has ended. However, to avoid security risks and viruses, Microsoft recommends that you consider upgrading to Windows 10.
Support for Internet Explorer on Windows 7 devices ended on January 14, 2020. As a component of Windows operating system, Internet Explorer followed the same support lifecycle.
For organizations to whom a virtualization solution might be appropriate, Windows Virtual Desktop is the only cloud-based service that delivers a multi-user Windows 10 experience, optimized for Office 365 ProPlus, and includes free Windows 7 Extended Security Updates. These updates can also be purchased separately as a last resort option (for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008/R2, and SQL Server 2008/R2) by organizations who require more time to shift to Windows 10.
Extended Security Updates have been available for purchase in VLSC since April 1, 2019 and via the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program since December 1, 2019.
Microsoft understands that everyone is at a different point in the upgrade process. ESU is recommended as a last resort for the devices that cannot be migrated to Windows 10 in time. The Windows 7 ESU will be sold on a per-device basis with the price increasing each year through January 2023. To enjoy the latest security, productivity, and manageability features that Windows 10 offers with regular updates and supports, we recommend organizations shift to the modern devices with Microsoft 365—which includes Windows 10, Office 365, and the latest security features.
You can continue to use Office 2010, but once support ends in October 2020, your PC will become more vulnerable to security risks. Office will continue to operate, but you will stop receiving security and feature updates.
This moment provides an excellent opportunity for you to evaluate your technology strategy and how a business can benefit from the latest solutions in Office 2019 and Office 365.
Connections to Office 365 services—such as Exchange Online—will not be supported after October 1, 2020. You should upgrade to an Office 365 plan that has the Office desktop apps to prevent any loss of productivity.
Office 2019 is the most current, up-to-date non-subscription version. It enables employees to do more by providing new intelligent tools and features, enabling best-in-class productivity while helping you stay protected and compliant with relevant regulations.
Office 2019 is Microsoft’s most secure perpetual version to date. Security features include Windows Information Protection (WIP), a Windows Pro feature that integrates with Office 2019 applications. On-premises versions of Office, including Office 2019, do not include all of the intelligent security features Microsoft has to offer. Users looking for Microsoft’s complete suite of intelligent security features should consider choosing Office 365 Business Premium or Microsoft 365 subscriptions.
With Office 365 subscription plans, you can create your best work with the premium versions of the Office applications across all your devices: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher, Access (Publisher and Access are available on PC only) as well as access to additional OneNote features (features vary). You can install Office 365 across multiple devices, including PCs, Macs, Android™ tablets, Android phones, iPad®, and iPhone®. In addition, with Office 365, you get services like cloud storage with OneDrive, Skype minutes for home use, and advanced Outlook.com security. When you have an active Office 365 subscription, you always have the most up-to-date version of the Office applications. Office 2019 is a one-time purchase with the classic versions of the Office applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for use on a single PC or Mac. The applications are not automatically updated—to get the latest version, you must purchase Office again when the new version becomes available. Current Office application versions available for one-time purchase are Office 2019 for Windows and Office 2019 for Mac. Previous versions include Office 2016, Office 2013, Office 2011 for Mac, Office 2010, Office 2007, Office 2008 for Mac, and Office 2004 for Mac. Office as a one-time purchase does not include any of the services included in Office 365.
You don’t need to be online to use Office after it is installed and activated on your devices. However, you will need Internet access initially to install and activate Office, to install any updates, and to manage your billing. Internet access is also required to access documents stored on OneDrive, unless you install the OneDrive desktop app. However, after your Office applications (like Word, PowerPoint, and Excel) are installed, you can use them offline. You should connect to the Internet regularly to keep your version of Office up to date and benefit from automatic upgrades. If you don’t connect to the Internet at least every 39 days, your applications will go into reduced functionality mode, and you might see an unlicensed product error. To reactivate your Office applications, simply reconnect to the Internet and sign in to Office 365.
