Attention All Healthcare Professionals! Still Using Windows XP? — Your Time Is Up.

Windows XP HealthcareMicrosoft has officially stopped delivering technical assistance or software updates for Windows XP.

They warn us: “These include security updates that can help protect your PC from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software, which can steal your personal information.”

However despite the years of warning, nearly 20% of businesses still run XP.  Healthcare organizations are particularly vulnerable, because using Windows XP risks noncompliance with HIPAA. Ironically, the cost of upgrading to a newer operating system is much less expensive than the price of a HIPAA settlement.

Whether you run a healthcare organization or other type of business, if you’re using XP, it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be impacted by a virus, worm or malware.

Call Slivertip IT at (425) 998-9199, or email us at cslade@silvertipit.com for more information, or assistance migrating from Windows XP.

CLIENT FEEDBACK

“Silvertip IT provides us with exceptional services and products. We have a new level of assurance and confidence in our  IT systems.  This was put to the test when one of our servers failed over a weekend and in the following week while we waited for new hardware, our staff was still able to work without interruption on a virtual server, completely unaware of the hardware failure. Our issues are responded to quickly and efficiently, and Silvertip’s support personnel are knowledgeable and friendly.”
