Brace Newsletter: Windows 7 Support will end on January 14, 2020

Microsoft will discontinue Windows 7 support so that they can focus their investment on supporting newer technologies and greater new experiences. 

The specific end of support for Windows 7 will be January 14, 2020. After that, technical assistance and software updates from Windows Update that help protect your PC will no longer be available for the product, which will leave every user vulnerable to hackers and viruses.

We strongly recommend that you update your windows operating system ASAP to avoid a situation where you need service or support that is no longer available or expose your private and confidential information to online hackers. In the process of updating your system please reframe from using any internet banking sites and emails as these will become extremely vulnerable.

If you are looking to upgrade or replace your operating system please get in contact with our sister company, Whitelight Hosting.

They are offering a free remote IT and security review where they will provide any necessary recommendations that are needed.
