Microsoft Windows 7 Embedded System OS End of Security Updates: What You Need to Know
Note: This does not apply to the Xerox Free Flow Print Server digital front ends which are running Windows 7 Embedded Standard Operating Systems.
Consistent with Microsoft’s recommendation, Xerox supports the recommendation to replace Windows 7 Embedded Systems operating systems in your environment with newer, fully supported operating systems.
Xerox is committed to keeping our customers and their information secure. For more on information security, please visit www.xerox.com/security, to find security bulletins, patch information, US-CERT advisories, white papers, and videos on what customers can and should be doing to mitigate security risks.
In the case of print drivers, customers can continue to use our current Win 7 drivers, recognizing the risks and vulnerabilities of continuing to use the Win 7 Operating System. There is also an easy option to upgrade to one of our newer print drivers, including our Global Print Driver Mobile Express Driver at the Xerox Support and Drivers website. Other software products should be evaluated if you plan to continue to use them in a Win 7 environment, considering your ongoing risks and vulnerabilities as described by Microsoft.
