Be Your Tomorrow

Inspire employees, boost productivity and secure company data with hardware, software and apps that are designed to work together.

After 14 January 2020, Windows 7 will continue to start and run, but you will no longer receive updates or support—including new security updates, non-security hot-fixes, free or paid assisted support options and online technical content updates from Microsoft.

PCs running Windows 7 after 14 January 2020 should not be considered protected. It is important that you migrate to a current supported operating system such as Windows 10 so you can receive regular security updates to help protect your device from malicious attacks.

Windows 7 end of support is a great time to transition to Windows 10 devices, such as Microsoft Surface.

“Productivity is the engine of human progress—it is what propels our society forward. The promise of technology is to help us get more done, with less effort.”
Satya Nadella, CEOMicrosoft
