Risk Analysis for EOL Hardware & Security

One of the biggest benefits of modernizing business with the latest technology is that it is always changing - and updating. However, this means that companies constantly need to analyze their software, hardware, and security to see when certain products need to be updated, and how they should go about doing so. Many of the technologies businesses are using today go to end-of-life after six and twelve months, meaning risk analysis is vital to keep business disasters at bay.

The risks

  • Security
    • Failing to update products coming up to end-of-life can comprise a company's security, making them more vulnerable to hacking
  • Efficiency
    • Having outdated IT will slow down your day-to-day business
  • Revenue
    • If companies are using products facing EOL, they can deal with revenue loss from lack of the proper productivity tools, cybersecurity threats, and more
