By January 2020 Windows 7 will reach its end of life, which means, Microsoft will no longer release security patches and bug fix updates for the Windows 7 operating system. This leaves Windows 7 computers progressively more vulnerable to attacks and virus threats. We can help by changing your Windows 7 devices to Windows 10 if you wish to continue working safely in the Windows environment you like.

Windows 10 comes in Home, Pro and Enterprise editions. Home computers come with Windows 10 Home installed. For Small and Medium Businesses and Schools we recommend Windows 10 Pro. If you have Windows 10 Home this can be upgraded but at a cost. Windows 10 Pro provides greater security for your computer and your data as it has Bitlocker which enables encryption of both your computer and USB keys.

It is essential to move to Windows 10 to continue working in a Windows environment supported by Microsoft. On Windows 10 you are better protected because your computer will receive security updates and new feature improvements regularly. Give our helpful staff a call 1890 219 219 and we can advise you on upgrading to Windows 10.

Moving to Windows 10 operating system gives business users better functionality and security:

  • TPM chip support: If your computer has one of these microchips (giving greater security options) then Windows 10 will support it’s use.
  • BitLocker: on Windows 10 Pro only, has more complex security measures than Windows 10 Home or Windows 7, it gives users the ability to encrypt data stored on their fixed hard drives as well as external devices and USB keys by using a TPM chip in the machine and BitLocker from the Win 10 Pro operating system.  If you have sensitive data on your device you must protect it, Windows 10 Pro gives you that ability.
  • Windows 10 contains Windows Defender Exploit Guard which can prevent malware/ransomware writing to controlled folders containing your important business information.
  • New Start Menu: easy to navigate and where you can see a wide range of applications available to you.
  • Update Management: Microsoft provides you with security and feature updates regularly. Vital to protect your computer from vunerabilities and attacks. Microsoft is increasing the allocated space area for updates, so users have less issue with trying to find additional space on their hard disk themselves.
  • Windows 10 May 2019 Update gives users the ability to strip out built in operating system applications they won’t use so as to increase the amount of storage space available to them to use.
  • Battery Saver: a feature that makes your system more power efficient by limiting the background activity on the device.
  • Windows 10 Pro provides a wide range of VPN client compatibility. A Virtual Private Network enables a user to encrypt and route data traffic to a specialised server over a secure connection which enhances a user’s online security by hiding a users identity and data from others on the internet. For employees travelling or using public networks a VPN is a must.

If you want to stay with Microsoft Windows, then you need to change to Windows 10 which gives you greater flexibility and security with its many features. Call HomeHelpTech 1890 219 219 today we can help you upgrade to Windows 10.
