Lack of Microsoft support is not the only concern. Eventually, software vendors will no longer be concerned about updating for XP users, which will increase vulnerability and inefficiencies. Additionally, Anti-virus vendors will soon exclude XP from their list of supported operating systems.
Although SSD Technology Partners will continue to support our clients with IT security using XP beyond April 2014, we are encouraging any business currently using XP to develop a plan over the next few months for moving to more modern operating system. Over the past 3 years, knowing this change was coming, our engineers have migrated most of our clients away from XP onto Windows 7 or newer operating systems. If you are currently being held back from migrating to a newer Windows Operating System due to incompatibility with a business software, please contact us.
