List of Microsoft Products End of Support for 2017

End1I am writing this article to briefly list the Microsoft products whose mainstream and extended support finishes this year 2017.

So that IT folks have a wake-up call before it’s too late, they should either upgrade their MS product to the latest version of supported MS product or if the product has the option to extend for the support they should opt to avoid last hour panic.

The importance of updating software before the support end should not be ignored. Once the product life is retired MS won’t support software updates, patches and others vulnerability fixes which results your software application more prone to security risk.

An Organization having unsupported software or firmware/hardware due to unmanaged patch management plan leads to many security  vulnerability risks as:

1) No longer patches for MS software is supported which allow external attack like malware and other security risks.

2) Running unsupported products bring down the company compliance percentage below the threshold value. Which can later break compliance SLA’s with client and customer and if this is not addressed at the right time leads to loose client\customer.

3) Additional IT Budget to run the MS product with extended support which comes with a cost.

Products Transitioning from Mainstream to Extended Support: The following products will be moving from Mainstream Support into  Extended Support over the next year. Extended Support lasts for a minimum of 5 years and includes security updates at no cost, and paid non-security updates and support. Additionally, Microsoft will not accept requests for design changes or new features during the Extended Support phase.
