What does end of support mean?

All of the above applications and servers (including Office 2016Office 2019) will reach the end of support (EOS) on October 14, 2025. After this end date, Microsoft will no longer provide security fixes, bug fixes, or technical support. Using products after end of support leaves your organization vulnerable to potential security threats, productivity losses, and compliance issues. 


What we recommend

We recommend migrating devices running end of support products to the cloud with Microsoft 365 E3 to stay continuously supported. Microsoft 365 E3 includes familiar Microsoft 365 apps—such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, and more—along with online services like SharePoint and Exchange.

Microsoft 365 E3 is a comprehensive solution that not only includes the familiar Microsoft 365 apps but also offers a range of additional capabilities:

  • Foundational Zero-Trust: Helps secure identities, devices, and applications against threats.
  • Streamlined Endpoint Management: Provides IT administrators with management tools and enhanced user experience for employees.
  • Productivity and collaboration: Promotes collaboration across your organization, fostering new ways of working.
