Don’t Let Old Servers Hold You Back

Few things are more important to you than protecting your practice. And with sensitive information such as financial records and Protected Health Information (PHI) stored on your server, you need to take the proper safeguards to make sure your server is secure and up-to-date.

As of July 14, 2015, Microsoft will no longer support Windows Server 2003, meaning it may be time for an upgrade. If you’re currently running Windows Server 2003, continuing to do so could put your practice at risk because Microsoft will stop releasing updates for your network. In other words, there’s no time like the present to evaluate your server needs and make a change.

Why Switch?

The benefits of upgrading your server far outweigh any hassle or fear in doing so. Not only will you avoid potential problems, but you’ll be positioning your practice for the future.

  • Compliance: Remaining compliant with industry standards is a no-brainer. Upgrading your server will help keep you up-to-date with industry-wide requirements such as HIPAA regulations. Non-compliance risks and costs could be dramatic for your practice.
  • Security: To put it simply, why risk it? Since Microsoft will no longer be updating Windows Server 2003, new server hardware would ensure that your system receives patches and updates that will make your server less vulnerable to cyberattacks or bugs.
  • Savings: Using an out-of-date server can increase your operating costs due to increased maintenance costs, network segmentation (to isolate your 2003 servers) and stronger firewall protections.
  • Power: Don’t let your practice be left behind. A new server will position your business for the future by giving you the ability to grow. An upgrade also gives you RAID storage capability that delivers both high performance and redundancy in case of hard-drive failure.
