Stay Secure After Windows End of Life
We are all aware that Windows End of Life is coming, inevitably leading to the discontinuation of support for over 10 million rugged handheld devices that are used daily for warehousing, retail, logistics, manufacturing, healthcare, and more. However, did you know that more than 50% of decision-makers said they are planning to keep Windows systems? This wait-and-see approach can save resources initially, but in the long run can result in serious security risks and other issues.
End of Life means end of security patches and software updates for rugged environments, leaving your essential devices unprotected and vulnerable to compromise or even failure. Without protection, devices will be targets for hackers, viruses, and malware. By making the switch now to Android, you can minimize risk and keep your security software completely up-to-date. Android is the #1 platform choice to replace Windows, and we work with Honeywell to provide some fantastic resources to help you make the switch. Together, we provide our customers with a comprehensive set of enterprise services that address every phase of the mobility lifecycle, helping you to streamline operations and reduce IT-related costs.
