As a part of our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of data security and compliance, we want to draw your attention to the fact that Windows Server 2012 will reach its End of Life (EOL) on October 10th, 2023.
Why is this important?
Windows Server 2012 has been a reliable platform for many organizations, including those in the dental and medical industry that must adhere to HIPAA regulations. However, after October 10th, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates, patches, or support for this operating system. This poses a significant security risk to your IT environment, as unpatched systems are more vulnerable to cybersecurity threats.
