Keep your Noah data secure: Upgrade Windows XP

  by Support Specialist Ann Monnens

 

As you may already be aware, Microsoft has announced that as of April 8th 2014 it will no longer support the Windows XP operating system.

Once Microsoft’s support for the XP operating system stops, users will no longer receive new security updates or hotfixes that protect their systems from malicious activity, and any new vulnerabilities discovered in Windows XP after its “end of life” will not be addressed by new security updates from Microsoft.

According to a report by Computerworld, hackers have been storing Windows XP vulnerabilities they have discovered with the intent of unleashing havoc on XP users once Microsoft ceases extended support for the aging operating system.

With this in mind, HIMSA highly recommends that you update any Windows XP computers in your practice before this date to help ensure the safety of all your valuable computer content including your Noah software and patient database.

Now is the time to move to a modern operating system with increased protections from security vulnerabilities. For more information on Noah 4 support for Windows operating systems, click here
