All good things must come to an end and all software will one day reach End-of-Life (EOL). Microsoft Office 2007 EOL is coming in October 2017 as per the Microsoft Support Lifecycle Site. This will mean that all patching and extended support for the product will end and anything new that goes wrong with the product is ignored by Microsoft. This allows malicious hackers to use these flaws to easily infect systems, encrypt data, exfiltrate data or basically have their way with your systems. Now is the time to consider updating your systems to Office 365 which includes the opportunity to use their fabulous new Exchange Online service along with many other useful cloud based services.
