Windows 7 Migration: A Reboot on Cybersecurity
Windows 7 is dead in January 2020. Fact is, the battle has shifted to the endpoint because there are more of them in the network, they are less well defended and are managed by less technical personnel. Once the attacker gains a foothold, lateral movement is next. With Windows 7, the traditional defense has been signature-dependent anti-virus which has become ineffective against the modern attacker. Not to mention that anti-virus is self-serve; it’s on you to monitor what they did (or failed to do) and doing that 24/7 is very, very hard. The good news is that you can reboot your endpoint security approach to make it more effective at the same price.
