Windows 7 Extended Security Updates 2020


Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU) is a program offered by Microsoft to provide security updates for Windows 7 after the end of its extended support period. The extended support for Windows 7 ended on January 14, 2020, but businesses and organizations that need additional time to migrate to a newer version of Windows can purchase ESU to continue receiving security updates for a limited period.

Key points about Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU) 2020:

Availability: ESU is available for purchase only to Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Enterprise customers with volume licensing agreements.

Coverage: ESU provides security updates for eligible Windows 7 devices that are running these editions.

Duration: The ESU program provides security updates for up to three years after the end of extended support for Windows 7, which ended on January 14, 2020.

Cost: The cost of ESU varies depending on the year of purchase and the type of license agreement. The cost increases each year, so it’s more cost-effective to migrate to a newer version of Windows as soon as possible.

Scope: ESU covers only security updates and does not include other types of updates, such as feature updates or customer-requested non-security updates.

Migration: Microsoft recommends that customers using Windows 7 migrate to Windows 10 to take advantage of the latest security features and improvements.

It’s important to note that the ESU program is intended as a temporary measure to provide additional time for migration and should not be seen as a long-term solution for running Windows 7
