Exchange Server 2010 will no longer be
supported as of 1/14/2020.
Microsoft released Exchange Server in the winter 2009.
With less than 4% of Exchange Servers still running it, if you are – the world has been passing you by.
As of January 14, 2020 Microsoft will no longer support this server
Why does it matter?
Your server running Exchange 2010 won’t get any security patches as of January 15 2020.
Hackers know this. There is no question there will be numerous outbreaks in the following months.
In 2018 Email is the#1 attack vector by hackers. Older email systems such as Exchange 2010 are unable to protect against the most current attacks and have almost no filtering capabilities built in – exposing your end users unnecessarily to risk.
What is my risk?
Ransomware is on the rise, there are thousands of attacks already in circulation which target email. With little to no filtering capability, your email server delivers these attacks directly to your users’ inboxes. The use of Webmail on your email server further exposes the server to risk and in general unpatched systems are the “in” the hackers need to install and spread the Ransomware.
Quite frankly, your network security is only as good as your weakest link – and that will be your Exchange Server next year.
What do I need to do?
Upgrade or Cloud?
Deploying a new Exchange Server 2019 migrating your email to it is a complex process, best handled by professionals who specialize in it. Even if you have an internal IT Staff, contact us (847-348-3900 or email@example.com) for more information about this migration.
Migration to the cloud (Office 365) is another alternative many organizations are considering. However, the migration process is fairly complex and again best handled by professionals who specialize in it. Even if you have an internal IT Staff, have them contact us (847-348-3900 or firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information about this migration.
Where do I start?
Whether you have in house IT staff or not – contact us (847-348-3900 or email@example.com) for more information about this migration. We will work with you to create a project plan and budget.
If you are responsible for an IT Team I would also question your team as to “How did we get here”? A fundamental responsibility of the IT Team is to plan and budget for the life cycle replacement of all hardware and software solutions under their care. There should be no surprises. Contact us if you would like an assessment of your current network and security position.
For a limited time, Microsoft is offering heavy discounts if you engage with a Microsoft Cloud Partner (like PCS International) this can be used to help pay for some of your migration costs to the cloud. There are a limited amount of migration funds available and they will be allocated first come first serve – contact us for more information or to reserve yours.
