Windows Server 2003 Goes EOL

What’s Your Biggest Security Threat?

by Lane Shelton | 06.09.15

IT professionals face two fundamental challenges every day: 1) Keeping their enterprise’s network running, and 2) Keeping it secure.

Which is why it’s so important for enterprises still relying on Windows Server 2003 to migrate from the aging server OS, which Microsoft will cease supporting after July 14, 2015. Once Redmond no longer offers support, organizations relying on Server 2003 will face a number of risks that over time will only increase in severity.

Remember when Windows Server 2003 debuted? A highlight that had us all excited were the advances in IT security built in by design. We’re talking about a re-engineered Internet Information Services with strong administrator control both over how Web applications run and user authentication to websites, folders and documents; a standards-based TCP/IP infrastructure, including support for IPv6; and software restriction policies to thwart inadvertently introduced gotcha code and unauthorized program installs.

Should VDI be part of your move?

Benefits include improved security, productivity, cost savings and desktop management

by Eric Bruno | 05.22.14

With the desktop OS in transition, now might be a good time to take another step, to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Better security, compliance, and control are compelling VDI benefits.

According to a CIO.com report from a few years ago over 63 million people could telecommute by 2016. At this point, my sense is that estimate is low. While this level of telecommuting represents potential savings to enterprises (reduced office space and telecommunications costs, plus added worker productivity), combined with the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, it does bring new risks. Security, availability, and reliability are at the top of the list.
