Microsoft has announced Windows Server 2003 End of Support (EOS) on July 14, 2015. Many businesses will be forced by circumstances to leave these systems in service for some time. Retiring a major enterprise component has always been a challenge for IT departments. In addition to various logistical issues, an out-of-support component is vulnerable to attack and may leave the business vulnerable to significant security and compliance risks.
By employing Palo Alto Networks® Traps™ Advanced Endpoint Protection as a compensating control, businesses can keep Windows Server 2003 systems compliant and secure, even after EOS.
