|The End of Support (EOS) of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 in July 2015 will put millions of enterprise servers at risk. And according to a recent study by leading analyst firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), “More than 80% of enterprise and midmarket organizations still support Windows Server 2003 to some extent.” If your organization uses Microsoft Server 2003, the EOS will introduce serious security risks unless you are fully prepared to migrate to a new platform or put compensating controls in place. Because hackers know that Microsoft will no longer acknowledge or patch vulnerabilities, these servers will quickly become a favorite target for attacks. And the risks of running Windows Server 2003 after EOS will increase over time as more issues are found and not patched.
