What the Windows 7 end of life means for businesses

What will happen on January 14, 2020?

Windows 7, the wildly popular operating system (OS) that’s still used by millions of users and enterprises around the globe even after 10 years of its release, will take its final bow. This means Windows 7 patches and support will no longer be available after that date, thus exposing the OS to security threats, which endangers the data of small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

It’s not all doom and gloom, however.
