As of January 2020, Windows Server 2008 and Microsoft Exchange 2010 have both officially reached the end of support. So, if you’re still using either of them, you’re issuing an open invitation to cybercriminals.

Whilst the systems will continue to work, Microsoft will no longer support them through security patches, upgrades or customer support; which means that your software will no longer receive updates to protect against viruses, malware or other cyberattacks.

If security is important to your business or you are required to maintain a cybersecurity accreditation standard such as Cyber Essentials, then you should address this issue as soon as possible as not doing so will fail most security audits and accreditation standards.
