365 Solutions Group would like to let you know that Microsoft have officially announced their Exchange Server 2010 will no longer be supported as of October 13, 2020.
So what exactly does this mean for you?
Most importantly, it means you’ll no longer receive critical security patches and bug fixes, which leaves your organisation open to the risk of security breaches and system instability. You’ll also lose eligibility for technical support, new features or time zone updates.
Let’s dive into some details.
Benefits of migrating to Office 365
Because 90% of security breaches are due to unsupported, unpatched software, staying on this legacy version of Exchange shouldn’t be an option – it’s too late to upgrade after you’ve been hit by a cyber-security attack.
But don’t panic – the easiest way to migrate off the old platform is to go to Exchange Online, as part of an Office 365 subscription. This gives you peace of mind, with Microsoft taking care of cloud security and keeping the software permanently up to date. Your IT services and email data are secure, and highly available with a 99.9% platform SLA guaranteed. And with Enterprise E1 and E3 business plans you’ll enjoy a generous 100GB capacity for mailboxes.
With your Office 365 subscription you also get a range of applications that are essential for any business – as well as favourites like Word and Excel, it includes OneDrive, OneNote, Teams and Planner, all created specifically for collaborating, storing and communicating. And because Office 365 is cloud-based, these tools can be accessed from virtually any location and device, and you’ll always have access to the latest versions, at no additional cost.
If you’re using Exchange Server 2010, we strongly recommend that you upgrade or migrate to Exchange Online as soon as possible. As a Microsoft partner, 365 Solutions Group offer:
- A better understanding of what these changes mean to your organisation
