Relying on legacy operating systems for your business critical applications leaves your organization vulnerable to hefty fines by failing to comply with changes in regulations.
Many organizations continue to use legacy systems to run business-critical applications out of necessity. These organizations may want to avoid business disruption, or they may lack the budget and specialized skills required to modernize IT infrastructure. While it might seem easier to maintain a legacy system, the reality is that the older these systems get, the harder it is to keep them secure and compliant with regulations, and the more risky and costly they become to a business. As business landscapes change, legacy servers leave you behind and vulnerable to hefty fines enforced by regulatory bodies and governments.
