Omaha, Neb. — On Jan. 14 Microsoft will end its support for Windows 7 operating systems, and it will do the same for Microsoft Office 2010 by the end of the year. FNTS recommends organizations take a proactive approach and make the shift to Windows 10 and Office 365 as soon as possible.

“When a product reaches its end of support, free technical assistance and software updates are no longer made available, leaving systems vulnerable to viruses, malware, and other cyberthreats,” said FNTS President Kim Whittaker. “Ensuring operating systems and software are consistently updated is crucial to avoid costly downtime.”

Whittaker says Microsoft’s new changes can be an excellent opportunity for digital transformation.

“FNTS has been helping businesses make the shift to Windows 10 and Office 365 to stay current on advances in cloud, software, and data center offerings,” she said. “As a certified Gold Partner with Microsoft, FNTS fully optimizes its services to fit all business models, allowing companies to work smarter and faster while increasing cost savings, security, and support.”

FNTS is offering a free 30-day trial of Windows 10 and Office 365. For more information, visit
