Keeping important systems secure

This exposure can put everything from important data to well-managed TCO in jeopardy, especially as the full impact of End of Support is yet to be understood. We’ve put together a short guide that compares security risks between Windows® XP and Windows 8 – and some of the answers might surprise you.
