INFO: Purchasing Extended Security Updates for Windows 7 after end-of-service date

imageIf you don’t believe you’ll be able to upgrade your infrastructure off of Windows 7 Professional or Enterprise by January 14th, 2020 – the day Windows 7’s end-of-service – there is the *last resort* possibility of purchasing “extended security updates” on an annual basis for your remaining computers.

Be forewarned that “extended support” contracts:

  1. Require an existing Premier Services agreement
  2. Are paid annually & increase substantially in cost every year after
  3. Are only available for Windows 7 Enterprise & Professional
  4. Are available until January 2023
  5. Have a substantial price tag

Our End of Support page for Windows 7 is located here:

There is an abbreviated FAQ at the bottom of the page that highlights the availability of “extended security updates” for Windows 7 and points to a downloadable comprehensive FAQ document with more details:

    • Are there alternatives that give me extra time to complete my migration while keeping my users safe?
      For users of Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Enterprise, you can purchase extended security updates through January 2023. For an in-depth FAQ about Windows 7 Extended Security Updates, please download the Microsoft end of support FAQ.
