Microsoft has announced that as of July 14, 2015, it will discontinue support for its 11-year-old server
operating system, Server 2003. This follows in the wake of its recent discontinuation of support for Windows XP this past spring. Failure to upgrade your server off of this operating system dramatically increases any company’s cyber-security risks.
With server migrations taking on average 200 days from planning to completion (industry average), if you
still have a server running this software active on your network, now is the time to start planning.
End of support for Windows Server 2003 means:
No further updates or security patches released. 37 critical updates were released for Server 2003
in 2013 alone. No updates will be released after 7/14/15.
Loss of compliance. Various industry regulations and industry standards will no longer be able to be
achieved if you are using Server 2003 actively on your network.
Increased security risks. Any server running this operating system will be completely exposed to
serious hacker attacks aimed at taking control of your network, stealing your data or crashing your
