Windows Server 2012 End of Support: Risks and Implications

May 30, 2024

Windows Server 2012

Important Notice: Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 reached End of Support on October 10, 2023

Remember the trusty Windows Server 2012? It has powered your business for years and is a reliable workhorse that keeps things running smoothly. But times change, and unfortunately, so does technology. As of October 2023, extended support for Windows Server 2012 has ended. Here's what that means for you:

Imagine this: You walk into your office after a long weekend. The lights are off, dust bunnies tumble across the floor, and the air feels stale. That's what your Windows Server 2012 is like now – outdated, vulnerable, and begging for trouble.

Why is this a security risk? Think of it like an old, rickety house with a creaky front door and a broken lock. Hackers love these kinds of easy targets. With no more security updates, your server is wide open to:

  • Data Breaches: Hackers can waltz in and steal your precious customer data, financial information, or internal documents. Ouch!
  • Compliance Headaches: Many regulations require businesses to use supported software. Clinging to Server 2012 could land you in hot water with hefty fines.
  • Performance Drain: Like that dusty office, your server will become sluggish and incompatible with newer technologies. Say goodbye to peak performance!

But fear not fellow Aussie businesses! Upgrading to a supported version like Windows Server 2022 is your chance to give your server a modern makeover. Think of it as a complete security overhaul and a performance boost all rolled into one!

Here's what you gain:

  • Fort Knox Security: The latest security patches and features keep your data safe and sound, just like a high-tech security system for your digital assets.
