If your business is still using Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 for email, it’s time to reconsider your options (before it’s too late, and your business suffers).
Microsoft is ending support for Exchange 2010 next year, and if you wait too long to decide on migration options, more than likely, you’ll open up your organization to unwanted malicious attacks from cybercriminals looking to exploit.
The good news is there are options for businesses preparing for Exchange 2010 End of Service (EOS).
What does EOS for Exchange 2010 Mean?
Microsoft is ending support to several of its software products — including Exchange 2010 — on January 14, 2020.
While businesses can still use Exchange 2010 after its EOS date, they will not be protected from new viruses, spyware, and other malware.
The tech giant will no longer provide the following when it ends support for Exchange 2010:
- Technical support
- Bug fixes
- Security fixes
- Time zone updates
These businesses should begin migration planning today to avoid support gaps.
There are a couple of migration options for businesses to consider before Microsoft ends support for Exchange 2010.
Migrate to Office 365
Migrating from Exchange 2010 to Office 365 is the easiest and fastest route for businesses to take when preparing for Exchange 2010 EOS.
