Don't put your data at risk
Running Windows Server 2003 in your environment after their
end of support date might expose your company to potential security
vulnerability risks, such as viruses, spyware, malicious software
(malware), phishing, and identity theft, which can steal or damage your
data and information. Anti-virus software will also not be able to
fully protect you once Windows XP itself is unsupported.
If your company must meet compliance regulations such as PCI-DSS,
HIPAA, etc., which might may result in a failure by an internal or
external audit body, leading to suspension of certifications.
Software and Hardware Support
Many independent software vendors (ISVs) are unlikely to support new
versions of applications on Windows XP. Many software and
hardware vendors will no longer support their products that run on
Windows XP. This means third-party software and hardware might
lose security or support.
Lack of Technical Support
Online and phone-based technical support from Microsoft will be
discontinued on April 8, 2014, meaning you and ITPS will no longer be
able to get first-party assistance when problems arise.
