Microsoft Pulling the Plug on Support for Key OS Titles

The end of life date has been announced as January 14, 2020. If your business still utilizes these titles, it is essential that you have a strategy in place to move off of that software. The applications “end of life” date is the date after which they will no longer be supported by Microsoft. Without software support, the software doesn’t actually become unusable, but features may not work; and, without Microsoft patching the software, viruses and malware created by hackers just lying in wait for this event, will become an almost immediate issue. Let's take a brief look at the two major software titles losing support next January.

Windows 7

Windows 7 is one of Microsoft’s most popular software titles to this day. This is a troubling fact for many industry professionals. Microsoft itself has begun an ad campaign trying to inform people that are still using Windows 7 to upgrade as soon as possible. For the business that relies on this software, it can be a major expense to move all of its workstations off of Windows 7, but time is running out to strategize an escape plan of sorts.

For the past couple of years, the best option was to upgrade to Windows 10; and, many businesses have taken advantage of Microsoft’s wholesale effort to get people to do so. If you have a lot of workstations to move over, contacting a professional IT consultant can be advantageous. Our staff can help you by putting together a plan that would get your business upgraded away from Windows 7 in time for the end of support date.

Recently, Microsoft has launched the Microsoft 365 service in an obvious attempt to get as many of the millions of people using Windows 7 off the platform before the end of life date. Eclipse Integrated Systems’s IT consultants can provide you with all the pricing information about Microsoft’s newest offering, which is a cloud-hosted virtual desktop experience that comes with OneDrive, Outlook, and Office 365 support.

Regardless of what choice your business makes, it is important that you make your move quickly. After January 14, 2020, any PC running versions of Windows 7 that aren’t the Pro or Enterprise versions, will no longer have support available to them, for any price. For those organizations (and individuals) that do utilize the Windows 7 Pro or Enterprise, extended security updates are available for a premium price. Microsoft is offering support per license, per year. Contact our sales consultants to get pricing.

Windows Server 2008 R2

Microsoft has already retired some versions of Windows Server 2008, but in January they will finally retire the entire suite. This will be problematic for some businesses. If your business is still using Windows Server 2008 R2 for your data and applications, you have to have a plan in place to upgrade. Since, like Windows 7, Microsoft will cease providing security fixes for Windows Server 2008 R2, your business will be staring disaster in the face if you don’t upgrade.

Microsoft has released two new versions of the Windows Server software, and they have cloud-based options that are built in their popular Azure cloud for companies still using the Windows Server 2008 R2 suite. The question is cost. Eclipse Integrated Systems’s consultants can not only provide you with workable options on how to migrate your centralized hardware over to the Azure cloud, they can do the same if you need to update your onsite server infrastructure.

If you need help moving your workstations and servers over to software that will be supported for the long haul, our IT technicians have all the knowledge and experience to provide you with answers. Call us today at 800-340-0505 to learn more.

Ransomware Can Just Be Devastating

Keep in mind that these numbers don’t come from the federal government or the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as they don’t track these attacks. As of May 10th, of this year, there have been 22 known attacks on the public sector, and there are likely even more than we don’t know about.

March 2019 Attacks

March saw a few ransomware attacks on municipalities, including the one on the sheriff’s office in Fisher County, Texas, which was infected and couldn’t connect to a state law enforcement database.

Albany, New York announced that it also has become victimized by a Saturday ransomware attack. This was a tactical choice by the hackers, as there was nobody around to actually fight back against the attack on a weekend. The city gave an understated account of the attack’s effect, but the real issues were considerable in nature--much worse than delayed marriage licenses and birth certificates.

Ransomware also hit the Albany Police Department’s systems, resulting in the entirely digitized systems being inaccessible. Officers were unable to access incident reports, crime reports, and schedules.

April 2019 Attacks

In April, Genesee County, Michigan’s tax department was completely shut down by ransomware for more of the month. The infection has been removed since.

May 2019 Attacks

The complete shutdown of Baltimore, Maryland was the highlight (if you can call it that) May attack. Caused by a ransomware called RobinHood, various issues kept the government from working as intended. Emails couldn’t be sent, payments couldn’t be processed, and real estate transactions had to be placed on hold. According to cybersecurity expert Avi Rubin, RobinHood utilized a notoriously powerful algorithm that even the National Security Agency couldn’t break. Furthermore, Baltimore was utilizing outdated hardware and software, which further exacerbated the problem.

Baltimore City Mayor Jack Young has gone on the record stating that the city will not be paying the ransom of 13 Bitcoins (approximately $100,000). The FBI and Secret Service have been called in to investigate, but the city is expecting a lengthy recovery time of at least a few months.

Rubin has provided some insight into why not paying the ransom was the right call, stating that if nobody ever paid these ransoms, then the attacks wouldn’t be as popular as they are in the first place. Unfortunately, companies often pay the ransom due to several factors, one of which is almost certainly the embarrassment factor that comes with falling victim to a threat like this. 45 percent of affected organizations pay the ransom to try to get their data back, while 17 percent of state and local governments pay up.

Eclipse Integrated Systems has some experience dealing with these attacks, and we agree with the decision made by organizations that refuse to pay the ransom. There’s no guarantee that you will save your data, even by paying the ransom, so why should you do so? After all, you’re only funding future ransomware attacks. It’s no different from investing in the hacking campaign.

We instead recommend implementing preventative measures to keep attacks like this at bay in the first place. To learn more, reach out to us at 800-340-0505.

Company Culture Goes a Long Way

In many cases, your company’s culture defines your company. When someone comes into contact with your business, they’ll typically know immediate whether it’s good or bad. Therefore, since that influence will ultimately affect the bottom line, you should consider investing in creating an engaging and inclusive company culture.

Draw in Talent

Your clients will typically appreciate working with a business that values its employees and nurtures their talents rather than one that is notorious for employee turnover, but ultimately, if a business is effective at delivering products and services of value, it doesn't matter much to outside businesses. Even so, it makes a lot of sense to invest in your employees and provide them with enough direction to effectively complete their duties. By fostering a more positive culture within your workplace, however, it will attract a wide pool of talent, giving your business access to the most talented candidates.

Retain Talent and Reduce Turnover

You can attract as much talent as you want, but it means nothing if you can’t retain it. Therefore, you should strive to maintain a gold standard for employee satisfaction. After all, a sudden loss of an employee for a variety of reasons can lead to dropped processes, missed opportunities, and costs associated with the hiring process. Remember that onboarding a new employee will always cost more than retaining a current one.

If your employees are happy with your organization and not motivated to leave, then you don’t need to suffer from these impacts. A positive company culture can be incredibly effective in this regard. Research conducted by Gallup found that only 37 percent of employees engaged in their work were actively seeking new employment opportunities, compared to 73 percent of those who are disengaged with their work.

Similarly, Columbia University found that organizations with a strong company culture experienced turnover rates as low as 13.9 percent. Compared to the 48.4 percent turnover rates of businesses with poor company culture, it’s not hard to see the benefits this.

Boost Productivity

The right company culture can make your employees happy, and, what do you know, happy employees are more likely to be productive, which will ultimately result in happier clients and increased motivation to do their jobs well. The same Gallup research found that engaged employees saw productivity boosts of up to 21 percent, with another study by IBM-owned Kenexa finding that organizations with an engaged workforce brought in twice the income that an organization without these kinds of engagement levels.

Reduce Employee Burnout

Employees can suffer from burnout for several reasons, but a negative company culture can be a root cause. While it might be tempting to push the blame on the employee for this, your business is the one that has to suffer the consequences. Employee burnout is a contributing factor to a 49 percent increase in workplace accidents, as well as a 60 percent increase in errors. Overall, stressed out or overworked employees are a liability to your business, so take some time to decrease this stress so they can be better assets for your company’s future.

Improved Attendance

Your employees aren’t going to be very good ones if they never make it to the office, and according to a Harvard Business Review study, an increase of about 37 percent was reported among disengaged employees. This is naturally a serious issue, as employees that aren’t getting work done due to not being in the office can contribute to your organization’s suffering, and even morale could take a hit. A more positive company culture can encourage users to make it to work, leading to more productivity as a whole.

It’s clear that company culture can play a significant part in the success (or failure) of your organization, so don’t take any chances with it. Eclipse Integrated Systems can equip your business with several technology solutions that make life easier and more efficient for your employees. To learn more, reach out to us at 800-340-0505.
