An URGENT Security Warning For Businesses Running Windows XP Or Office 2003
If your organization is currently running either Windows XP or Office 2003 on one or more computers in your office, you need to know about a dangerous security threat to your organization that must be addressed within the next 3 months. Please take a moment to read this important announcement.
As your local Microsoft Silver Certified Partner, we are aggressively reaching out to all businesses within the Tri-State area that use Windows XP and Office 2003 to alert you of this serious security risk to your organization and inform you about what you need to do now to protect your company.
XP And Office 2003 Changes Must Be Made By April 8, 2014
Microsoft has officially announced that it will retire support on the XP operating system and Office 2003 software suite on April 8, 2014. That means any computer with these software programs installed will be completely exposed to serious hacker attacks aimed at taking control of your network, stealing data, crashing your system and inflicting a host of other business-crippling problems you do NOT want to have to deal with.
This is such a serious threat that all companies housing financial and medical information are being required by law to upgrade any and all computer systems running XP or Office 2003 because firewalls and anti-virus software will NOT be sufficient to completely protect them (or you).
Unless you don’t care about cyber criminals running rampant in your company’s server, you MUST upgrade any equipment running these programs.

At no cost, we’ll come to your office and conduct our proprietary Risk Assessment — a process that’s taken us over 15 years to perfect — to not only determine what specific computers will be affected by this announcement, but also to assess other security, backup and efficiency factors that could be costing you in productivity and hard dollars.

I understand that this consultation will not be a “heavy pressure” sales meeting and that it will arm me with the information and facts I need to best address this situation. Should I decide to seek your office and services after the consultation, then I will ask you to do so.
During this assessment, I will receive:
- A Customized Migration Plan that will show me how to painlessly upgrade my old Office 2003 and XP machines. If appropriate for my business, I will also receive information on how I can upgrade my old machines while eliminating the need for me to spend a small fortune on new hardware and software.
- A FREE risk assessment of my computer network aimed to expose any security risks and issues that I wasn’t aware of and also to find ways to make my business FAR more efficient and productive.
