Getting to know some of the reasons why your business should upgrade to Windows 10 will help you make an informed decision about whether or not making the switch is in your best interests. At EC Managed IT, we understand how important it is to keep your business software updated. That is why we offer a range of IT services that are designed to help keep your business up to date on all the latest software options.
Some of the reasons that you should consider updating your business to Windows 10 include:
Since Microsoft will no longer be providing technical assistance and security for Windows 7 after January 14, 2020, not making the switch to Windows 10 will make your company more vulnerable to hacks, malware, viruses, and other potential security issues. Computers that are running on older versions of Windows will also be more vulnerable to ransomware attacks; however, upgrading to Windows 10 can prevent ransomware problems, as it comes with a feature that locks user work and personal documents on the computer in the event of a ransomware attack.
Windows 10 comes with Windows Defender Exploit Guard, which provides additional ransomware protection by scanning, quarantining, and removing any malware. This type of malware security can also be used to stop zero-day attacks, block and quarantine malicious programs, and isolate infected computers on the network.
The Windows Defender Application Guard for Windows 10 Enterprise and Professional allows users to use the Edge browser in a much safer way. In the event that an employee accidentally downloads malware onto their computer by visiting a malicious website, the malware will be unable to damage the computer or the network because Windows Defender Application Guard confines the malware to a virtual machine.
Windows 10 comes with Windows Autopilot which allows you to easily set up system configurations that can be downloaded from the cloud. This means that connecting the new computer to the business’ network will allow it to automatically download and configure itself to the business’ required settings, making it easier to configure, manage, and reset business computers.
