Windows Legacy Systems - Don't Be Caught Unprotected

Presented by

Adam Gordon, vCISO & Microsoft SME

About this talk

Microsoft recently announced the end of life (EOL) for Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 2008 R2, and their embedded variants. Windows 2012 is slated for EOL in October 2023. EOL versions account for 13 percent of global Windows desktops, I.e., hundreds of millions of endpoints run vulnerable operating systems. Well-loved Windows 7 leads the way at nearly 10 percent, with estimates that over 150 million endpoints still run the unsupported operating system. Join Microsoft expert Adam Gordon from ITProTV for a deep dive into how legacy systems impact organizations, and how to improve their security. We will cover: * The security risks of running legacy systems * Which is a greater legacy challenge—endpoints or servers * Why it’s so difficult to migrate legacy endpoints to modern operating systems * Why traditional EPP and EDR tools struggle to protect legacy systems * Practical recommendations for improving legacy systems’ security posture
