As of October 10, 2017, Microsoft will no longer support Office 2007. If your company uses this version of Microsoft Office, it’s time to update before you face significant problems. This is an essential piece of news for your business, and you can’t afford to ignore it. Here’s what this means, and how you can make sure your company doesn’t suffer.
What does this mean for your company? Office 2007 won’t disappear from your computers, but there will be no more security updates or support available. Without security updates, your Office documents, and your computer’s files are at risk for being hacked. Security holes will eventually be found, and hackers will exploit them. Ignoring upgrading at this point will be a severe lack of security for your entire company.
You need to update Microsoft Office for your company. This means acquiring a license for a newer version and installing it on every computer at your business. This can be a time-consuming process, and you run the risk of your files being corrupted or not opening in the new version.
You should also keep in mind that Office 2007 is a decade old at this point. If your company hasn’t upgraded yet, it is time. Newer versions of Office have features that will help your business communicate on files better as well as the ability to make simple tasks move faster. For example, you can upgrade to Office 2016 and enjoy real-time collaboration on documents.
