Outside of employee error, one of the biggest threats to a small business is the continued use of legacy operating systems (OS) and equipment. The more out-of-date your systems are, the more vulnerable your business becomes. Running an old OS or using an old system may seem harmless and less expensive. The reality is just the opposite.
Hackers and cyber criminals specifically seek out companies like yours that rely on outdated technology to run their business and store data. Why? Because the odds are in their favor.
Legacy and poorly maintained technologies present an open invitation to cyber criminals to come in and create chaos while no one is looking. These vulnerabilities make it easier to get in, compromise the company’s data, destroy the network, or even hold your files hostage using ransom ware.
Unfortunately, many businesses don’t realize they’re running obsolete operating systems or using technology that hasn’t been refreshed or managed properly. It is just business as usual until it isn’t, and that’s where we can help.
If you’re using Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 for example, your company is a prime target for today’s advanced security threats. It’s time to take action. Together, we can ensure that all of your operating systems are up to date and that your technology is being proactively managed and maintained. Protecting businesses and helping them use technology to grow faster and be more successful is what we do.
