-- Ann Arbor-based Network Services Group (NSG) offers IT outsourcing solutions, protecting local businesses from vulnerabilities in outdated systems.
In January, Microsoft ended support for Windows 7, a part of the Windows NT family originally released in 2009. One expert estimates that more than 20% of Windows installations will still be running Windows 7 at the end of the year.
Many companies avoid updating their operating systems, citing reasons like compatibility issues, procrastination, or lack of an IT support specialist on site. Many simply don't realize the potential seriousness of doing business on a vulnerable network.
At best, running an unsupported OS can lead to bugs or issues with compatibility. At worst, it can leave businesses open to cyber-attacks costing time and money better spent growing the business.
Keeping software and systems up to date doesn't only keep software systems running smoothly, it builds a layer of protection against cyber-attacks.
For many small businesses, hiring a full-time employee to monitor and update IT simply doesn't make sense. IT outsourcing can be a great alternative to hiring in-house.
