3 more Microsoft products fell out of support on October 13, 2020:
- Office 2010
- Office 2016 for Mac
- Exchange Server 2010
If you’re on these older versions, upgrading should certainly be on your roadmap. If not to Office 365, then to a more recent on-premises release. As corporate security becomes an ever greater focus, and ransomware becomes an ever greater threat, now is not the time to be running unsupported software that’s over a decade old!
The changes for access to Office 365 have kicked in too, meaning the only releases of Office that are supported to access Office 365 are:
- Office 2016
- Office 2019
- Microsoft 365 Apps (formerly Office365 Pro Plus)
While Microsoft aren’t proactively blocking older versions, they’ve stated that as they fall further behind, performance and/or reliability issues may start to occur.
