Windows XP migration planning

Support is ending for Windows XP

As announced by Microsoft, support for Windows XP is ending on April 8, 2014. If your organisation is still running this OS version after support ends, you won't get security updates for Windows and all PCs will be exposed leaving networks critically vulnerable.

According to VMware, 64% of enterprise companies and 52% of mid-sized companies still need to migrate off of Windows XP. In addition, companies that fail to implement a migration plan over the next months will risk not being able to maintain any new technology following deployment whilst many applications will no longer be supported while running on XP.

It can also enable a pay per usage model.

IT Security: An Eternal Struggle?

IT security

A report by Forrester Consulting in 2013 suggests that 86% of security leaders feel that their concern over their organisation’s ability to manage risk stems from staff-related issues.

Companies are increasingly finding it difficult to compete with criminal attacks because of staff shortages and a lack of experience. This report has revealed that 80% of security leaders believe that it is very difficult to find and hire technical security staff that fit all of their requirements.
