The Clock Is Ticking
As of April 2014, Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP*. When security patches and system updates cease,
you’ll need to fill the vacuum with expensive custom software development and increasingly complex management
and support efforts to address growing incompatibilities. You’ll also increase your risk of falling prey to malware,
failing audits, and losing critical certifications. Even productivity will suffer as your workers grow frustrated with
slower performance, outdated technologies, and a lack of support for newer devices.
Challenges Bring Opportunities
When weighing the costs and benefits of upgrading, many decision makers focus on the initial capital expense. But
as Figure 1 shows, after about three years, support and remediation costs rise significantly, increasing your total
cost of ownership (TCO). Newer systems are more cost effective because they are easier to manage, operate more
efficiently, and reduce remediation costs by keeping you safer.1
Protecting your customers, employees, and data is critical to your business. By migrating to Windows 7 or Windows
8 on devices powered by Intel® Core™ processors, you can take advantage of stronger, hardware-enhanced security
features with exceptional manageability and performance. Intel technologies establish a secure root of trust that
provides better protection and attestation for the operating system and the applications above, along with stronger,
accelerated encryption, identity protection, and the ability to remotely lock down lost or stolen devices.
