Still Running Windows Server 2003? 4 Ways You’re Putting Your Livelihood at Risk!    

While the debut of Windows Server 2003 brought advances in IT security, the termination of its extended support on July, 14th, 2015 will create various security-related challenges for businesses that fail to upgrade before it’s too late.

Windows 2003 RetirementHere are some of the most serious concerns:

  1. Failure to comply with updated regulations:

Businesses who choose to run Windows Server 2003 beyond the end of its extended support may fail to comply with government or industry regulations concerning the privacy and security of sensitive customer data. Potential consequences include failed audits, damaged relationships with major partners, and hefty non-compliance fines.

  1. Improper use of financial resources:

After Microsoft ends support for Windows Server 2003, there will no longer be patches or updates available, which means running the system will cost a lot of time, energy, and money trying to safeguard against vulnerabilities. In fact, it’s estimated to cost $200,000 per year simply to prevent non-compliance.

  1. Absence of security updates:

Security updates will no longer be available for Windows Server 2003, thereby leaving bugs and system vulnerabilities unaddressed. This is particularly worrisome since Windows Server 2003 continues to be listed among systems commonly targeted by cybercriminals.

  1. Negative impact on other systems:

When compromised due to weakened security, attackers can launch assaults on other systems within the same IT environment. Additionally, any application connected to the underlying operating system can also be threatened if operated under Windows Server 2003.
