Did you know that the life of Microsoft’s Windows XP is coming to an end? That’s right. The Microsoft Windows XP operating system is going away. 

What does this mean for your business? Since Microsoft will no longer be supporting PCs running on Windows XP, this will leave desktops, laptops and entire networks exposed. Your business could be vulnerable to viruses, spyware, theft of personal and confidential information and network security breaches. In addition, if you are required to maintain compliance with industry regulations, you may face excessive fines, since unsupported operating systems are considered to be out of compliance.

There are only 8 short months left until Microsoft ends its support for Windows XP. That’s not much time to evaluate, organize and implement new business and IT strategies around the replacement of employee desktops and laptops, deployment of a new operating system (OS) company-wide, ensuring your business-critical applications are compatible with the new OS, training of employees and maintaining compliance with industry regulations.

Inadequate preparation could put your business, users and clients at risk. So, how are you going to get ahead of the curve and be ready when Microsoft finally says goodbye to Windows XP?

This webinar will discuss options to help prepare your business. You will learn:

    - Compelling facts & stats about Windows XP that can’t be ignored
    - Microsoft Windows XP end of life roadmap
    - Risks associated with running XP post-support
    - Migration options
    - Benefits of virtual desktops and other solutions

Join mindSHIFT and Citrix to discover the ways in which you can simply, securely and cost effectively manage your migration before Microsoft says goodbye to Windows XP.
