Heads up! Microsoft will stop sending security updates for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015.
What this means, in short, is that Windows Server 2003 will no longer receive updates or security patches from the manufacturer. Any organization still using Server 2003 after the July 14th deadline will be at particular risk of being hacked or experiencing data theft.
Not only will running Windows Server 2003 put your network at risk of being attacked, it will almost certainly put your organization outside of compliancy requirements.
Windows Server 2003 has had a long and productive life, but it’s time to bring in the new, whether we like it or not. Ultimately, offices currently relying on Server 2003 need to start preparing to upgrade their server operating systems, or else ready themselves to face uncomfortable consequences.
