Cybercriminals are very aware of how valuable confidential company data is, and as a result, they’re constantly coming up with new ways to attack businesses of all sizes. This could take the form of malware, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, and zero-day exploits.
Congratulations, you’ve finally made the big leap to the cloud! You’ve prepared your employees and IT infrastructure, rewritten applications, secured data, and spent a lot of money to ensure that your business’s migration goes as smoothly as possible without too many hitches.
Businesses have to keep up with the latest developments and technological innovations that can help their operations run more smoothly. One of the most popular solutions today is cloud computing. The cloud, compared to on-site servers, is cheaper, easier to maintain, more scalable, and more secure when it comes to handling sensitive data.
Cyberattacks continue to become more sophisticated every day, and hackers are constantly finding new ways to capture sensitive information from unsuspecting victims. Far too often, attacks involve a user clicking on a rogue link leading to a fraudulent website that steals data or unleashes destructive malware.
By January 14, 2020, Microsoft will finally pull the plug on its 10-year-old Windows 7 operating system (OS). This is when the OS will reach its “end of life,” or the date by which it will no longer be supported by the software company. Microsoft’s plan was always to develop better operating systems, so that’s why it introduced Windows 10 in 2015.
According to recent data by Netmarketshare, Windows 7 still has a 36.47% market share, despite having less than a few months of its life left.
