Microsoft offering paid Extended Security Updates for Windows 7 to SMB

Small and midsize businesses face many challenges in today’s economy. From engaging customers in new and different ways to attracting and retaining talent to remaining secure amid evolving threats, it’s not easy to stay ahead of the curve. The right tools help you meet those challenges, ensuring employees can be innovative and productive while your assets stay secure. They also save you time and money, and help you continue to earn the trust and loyalty of your customers. With Microsoft 365, we are building the tools to help our customers stay secure and current, setting them up for success now and in years to come. And today, we’re announcing a new offer that makes it easier than ever for small and midsize businesses to take advantage of these tools.

At Microsoft, we want to make sure you always have the right tools to set your business up for success. As following close behind in October, we have a new offer that will keep your employees productive and secure. Working with a modern device and Microsoft 365 Business—which includes Windows 10, Office 365, and the latest security features—you can do just that.

While many of you are well on your way to deploying Windows 10, we understand that everyone is at a different point in the upgrade process. With that in mind, today we are announcing that, through January 2023, we will extend the availability of paid Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU) to businesses of all sizes. (Previously, Windows 7 ESU was only available to Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Enterprise customers in Volume Licensing.) The Windows 7 ESU will be sold on a per-device basis with the price increasing each year.

Starting on December 1, 2019, businesses of any size can purchase ESU through the cloud solution provider (CSP) program. This means that customers can work with their partners to get the security they need while they make their way to Windows 10.

Partners within the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program can go to the Microsoft Partner Center to learn more. Meanwhile, Windows 7 customers looking to take advantage of the paid Extended Security Updates once they are available on December 1 can find out more by visiting our FAQ page. Finally, if you’d like to learn more about the end of Windows 7 support and the Office 365 Business, head to our support page.

We’re committed to always building the right tools for today’s businesses, big and small, so you and your employees are always set up for success—no matter what new challenges arise.

Hello. I've been using Windows 7 for 4 years now so I assume there is no need to update 50 or more files. When I shut down, my laptop begins updating. First, it was 51 files and it went extremely slow. Think it took about 4-5 hours. I checked windows update, and it still offered me 68...
