  Upgrade your Windows XP Machines with Radia CA

Microsoft XP will reach End of Life in April 2014, after which no security updates will be issued. The official statement from Microsoft can be read here - Windows XP EOL

Microsoft has just released its latest Security Intelligence Report. It summarizes information collected from over 1B PCs located across the world. According to Microsoft’s data, on average 9 out of a 1,000 Windows XP PCs are infected with malware. This is 6 times the rate of infected Windows 8 based PCs. Newer operating systems including Windows 7 and Windows 8 have significant security enhancements that limit their vulnerability to malware leading to more secure environments. 
With the high costs of any security breach, businesses still on Windows XP should be very concerned and should build plans to upgrade from Windows XP. Upgrade plans are urgent because in addition to the security concerns, Microsoft will end all support for Windows XP in April 2014. Fortunately, as a user of Radia Client Automation, you already have the tools you need to simplify OS upgrades from Windows XP.
