Cloud IT Company ‘Evaporate’ issues cyber threat warning for Windows users

    England based cloud and IT company Evaporate has issued a serious cyber threat warning to companies using obsolete Windows Systems. The Swindon based tech firm says that cybercriminals are waiting for the big day when Microsoft announces the end of support to some of its operating systems after which they become super- vulnerable to hackers.

    Rob O’Gorman, from Evaporate, said that the year 2020 will prove profitable to hackers as they have probably stored up all the vulnerabilities found in the software which would be later exploited as soon as the tech giant ends security updates and support to some of its operating systems.

    “Once Microsoft ends the life of certain software like Windows 7, Office 2010, Exchange 2010, Small Business Server 2011, and Windows Server 2008, it will be a shining beacon for hackers”, said Rob.

    They will definitely use the end-of-support criterion to their benefit and will make money by spreading espionage-related and data access locking malware said, Rob.

    After 2020 the problem will get serious as companies have to financially face the ire of GDPR which could result in millions, in addition to the downtime and loss of revenues added Rob O’Gorman.

    Note- Founded in 2014 by Jack Peploe, Evaporate offers cutting edge solutions to small and medium scale businesses. Those which are interested in reaping the benefits of the cloud could also take the help of the said London based company is going with the GDPR compliance.
