RIP Windows Server 2003: Are You Prepared to Migrate?

Kristy McDaniel Baia

End of life (EOL) is approaching. July 14, 2015 is an important date to note if your organization is still running Microsoft Windows Server 2003. After this date, extended support will end and Microsoft will no longer deliver critical security patches or updates. Being slated by some as one of the “biggest security risks of 2015,” there are major threats to your organization if migration is forgone or delayed past this deadline. This official alert from the US Department of Homeland Security warns of the possible consequences facing those who do not take action, including cybersecurity threats, as well as compliance and compatibility issues.

Plan ahead! Doing a migration after a server has failed will not only increase server maintenance costs, but will also put your data at risk and result in lost productivity. By moving to the cloud, you can reduce your costs and grow your business. AppRiver has solutions for you in both our Secure Hosted Exchange and Office 365 services. There are a few initial steps that our team can help you complete and depending on which platform you’re coming from, we can easily migrate your email messages, folders, calendars, contacts and notes. We understand that migrating your email and services can be a stressful transition, but our 24/7 Phenomenal Care™ team will be with you every step of the way, eliminating the guess work and helping you transition with confidence.
