We’ve been talking a lot about Windows 7 momentum lately and why customers are increasingly demanding it. For me, it’s personally exciting to see how small and midsized companies are flocking to it. In fact, the number of desktops and laptops running Windows 7 has increased nearly 500% in the last year among this audience (according to third-party research by SpiceWorks). It’s clear that Windows XP is no longer good enough for today’s business environment where a connected experience and secure infrastructure are essential.
Speaking of security, not surprisingly small business owners continue to tell us that security is their number one priority therefore it’s our number one priority. We recently talked about how small business owners can download Microsoft Security Essentials for free on up to 10 PCs. Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection to address the ongoing security needs of a genuine Windows PC, helping to protect it from viruses, spyware and other malicious threats.
We’re excited to let you know that today we’re also working with Symantec and PC Mall, a major U.S. reseller of technology products, services and solutions to small businesses, to extend free security software to those larger small businesses with up to 50 PCs and at least one server. From Nov 1st until December 31st you can get Symantec EndPoint Protection Small Business Edition for free when you purchase a new copy of Windows 7 Professional from PC Mall. Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition complements Windows 7 Professional security features by providing small businesses with easy to use, enterprise-level protection they need to help protect their critical assets from today’s known and unknown threats.
We think this is yet another great reason for small businesses to migrate to Windows 7 Professional with confidence.
