It’s Time to Secure Your Business

Windows 7 Embedded End of Support (EOS) is here. As of January 2020, security updates and technical support have ended, exposing unprepared organizations to security risks and compliance issues. Bsquare can prepare you for EOS to protect the embedded devices and IoT solutions you’ve built and ensure that you tackle the transition in the best way possible for your business.

Here’s what EOS means for you

No Security Updates

Without security hotfixes from Microsoft, devices running Windows 7 Embedded become vulnerable and expose your system to future threats.

Unsupported Platform

Microsoft no longer provides technical support and troubleshooting, which greatly reduces support options for Windows 7 Embedded issues.

Compliance Risks

Many certifications – such as HIPAA and PCI – require software platform support; EOS can affect your ability to remain compliant.

No New Features

Opening up potential software incompatibility issues as well as declining performance and reliability of legacy hardware.
