1
Google and Gmail Discontinue Support for Windows
XP and Vista

2
Google is among the latest of companies to
discontinue support for Microsoft Windows XP and
Vista operating systems.

3
Microsoft stopped offering updates to these older
operating systems some time ago. In the coming
months,
  • www.iqoffice.ca

    416.238.1111?



4
you can expect other companies to also announce
they will no longer provide updates for legacy
operating systems and related software
applications.
  • www.iqoffice.ca

5
If you have been slow to adapt and upgrade to the
latest operating system from Windows or switch to
Apples OS, you need to do so soon.
  • www.iqoffice.ca

6
With no more updates being released, it means
potential vulnerabilities in the old operating
systems can be exploited fundamentally leaving
your computer open to increased hacking risks.

7
Even worse, if the computer still running XP or
Vista is connected to a network or Cloud-based
environment, you could essentially being
providing access to all of your companys files
if you are the victim of a hacker.

8
Unfortunately, for some companies, the reason for
still using a legacy operating system stems from
incompatibilities with current operating systems.

9
They might have specialized software developed
for a particular legacy OS and the changes in the
latest Windows OS causes the software to not work
correctly.
  • www.iqoffice.ca

    416.238.1111?



10
As such, the company figures it is less expensive
to keep using the older OS instead of the
development costs to redesign the software to
work with the new OS.
  • www.iqoffice.ca

11
However, with the increased risks of hacking, it
is better for you to take control of upgrading
legacy software, rather than putting all of your
companys data at risk.

12
While you are working on redesigning your
software app to work in Windows latest OS or on
a Mac-based system,
  • www.iqoffice.ca

    416.238.1111?



13
you need to make sure the legacy app is taken
offline and cannot be accessed by computers or
work stations connected to the Internet.
  • www.iqoffice.ca

    416.238.1111?



14
Sure, this might sound like a real pain and some
of the data the system generates might be shared
with clients online, but not taking the system
offline, is like a ticking time bomb waiting to
explode.
  • www.iqoffice.ca

    416.238.1111?



15
There are other work-around solutions once you
take the system offline you might want to
consider, such as exporting the data onto an
external storage device,
  • www.iqoffice.ca

    416.238.1111?



16
which then can be plugged into a computer with
access to the Internet or Cloud to upload any
data you share in online environments.
  • www.iqoffice.ca

    416.238.1111?



17
Another option, if your IT developers are
stretched thin is to consider working with a
qualified software development firm.

18
When shopping around for one, make sure to find
one that has helped other businesses update their
legacy software apps and modify them to work with
current operating systems.

19
Once you find a suitable solution, remember you
can rent meeting rooms and conference rooms at iQ
Office Suites to meet with software developers,
