Microsoft Windows XP support ends on April 8

#1 Postby Shivani » Mon Mar 24, 2014 2:36 pm

If you are the one using Micosoft XP in your organisations then April 8 is the date which you should note down as its the date when Microsoft pulls off support for Windows XP systems. Estimates suggest that Microsoft’s PC install base for large enterprises in India is about 4 million units, of which 16% have not yet migrated from Windows XP.

The number of ATMs using Windows XP is higher compared to 16 percent of PCs (personal computers) which need upgradation. Last month, the US-based firm had said its PC install base for large enterprises in India is about 4 million units, of which around 84 percent have migrated from Windows XP.This news has increased the risk factor for these ATMs..

Since Microsoft will stop releasing XP updates and support, the operating system will become vulnerable to malware, viruses and hackers. Hence organisations need to devise a migration strategy at the earliest to circumvent the future losses resulting from security and compliance risks and the lack of availability of applications and peripherals compatible with Windows XP.
