Upgrade from Windows XP with SACA Technologies
Anaheim, California December 20, 2013 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Anaheim Hills, Calif. – December 20, 2013 – On April 8, 2014, Microsoft will end its support of Windows XP. What this means is that businesses that are still running on the operating system will no longer receive free security updates or computer support. Orange County businesses (and businesses throughout Southern California) should contact SACA Technologies to upgrade to a newer version of Windows.
"There are thousands of businesses that will be affected by Microsoft's decision to discontinue free updates and support of Windows XP," Alexander Saca, CEO of SACA Technologies, said. "A business that chooses not to upgrade to a newer operating system like Windows 7 or Windows 8 leave themselves vulnerable to several potential consequences."
One of the main consequences businesses might see if they don't upgrade their operating system is an increased vulnerability to outside threats such as hackers and malware. That is because users will no longer receive updates that protect them from the latest threats; cybercriminals can easily figure out how to infiltrate an unprotected system and exploit its vulnerabilities. Other potential issues include increased system downtime, costly IT support fees and less-optimal performance due to decreased maintenance and updates.
A good way for businesses to avoid these consequences is upgrading to a newer operating system with SACA Technologies. The Orange County managed services provider offers several options for businesses looking to upgrade.
One of the main options for SACA Technologies clients is managed upgrades. Their technicians can assist clients in upgrading to Windows 7 or Windows 8. This includes procuring the necessary licenses and software, installing the new operating system, and migrating the client's data. Additionally, SACA Technologies can acquire new hardware with newer operating systems already installed.
Businesses can also choose to migrate to a Hosted Desktop solution; SACA Technologies offers both Windows 7 and Windows 8 Hosted Desktops. With this cost-effective solution, a business's desktops are housed on SACA Technologies' servers and can be accessed from any Internet-enabled device.
