Top 5 Security Risks of Using Unsupported Server Products: How to Safeguard Your Business

In today's digital landscape, maintaining the security and integrity of your IT infrastructure is paramount. Unsupported server products pose significant risks to your business, potentially leading to severe data breaches, compliance violations, and operational downtime. This blog explores the critical security risks associated with using unsupported server products and provides practical advice on how to mitigate these risks by transitioning to supported solutions like Atlassian Cloud.

Unpatched Vulnerabilities

The Risk

Unsupported server products no longer receive security updates or patches from the vendor. This leaves your systems vulnerable to known exploits and new vulnerabilities, which cybercriminals can easily exploit.

How to Mitigate

Regularly update and patch your software. If you are using an unsupported product, plan a migration to a supported solution like Atlassian Cloud, which ensures continuous security updates and patches.

Compliance Violations

The Risk

Many industries have stringent regulatory requirements regarding data protection and IT security. Using unsupported server products can lead to non-compliance, resulting in hefty fines, legal repercussions, and loss of customer trust.

How to Mitigate

Ensure your IT infrastructure complies with relevant regulations by using supported products that meet industry standards. Atlassian Cloud offers compliance with various regulatory frameworks, helping you maintain compliance effortlessly.

Increased Downtime

The Risk

Unsupported server products are more prone to failures and crashes, leading to increased downtime. This can disrupt business operations, reduce productivity, and result in financial losses.

How to Mitigate

Transition to a reliable, supported platform like Atlassian Cloud, which offers robust infrastructure and high availability, minimizing the risk of downtime and ensuring continuous business operations.

Obsolete Security Technology

The Risk

Unsupported products often use outdated security technologies that are no longer effective against modern cyber threats. This increases the risk of data breaches and other security incidents.

How to Mitigate

Upgrade to a platform that uses the latest security technologies. Atlassian Cloud continuously updates its security measures to protect against emerging threats, providing you with state-of-the-art security features.

Risks from Unsupported Apps

The Risk

Many server products rely on third-party apps for extended functionality. Unsupported server products may have apps that are also unsupported, leading to potential security gaps and compatibility issues.

How to Mitigate

Audit your third-party apps and ensure they are supported and compatible with your primary platform. Migrating to Atlassian Cloud allows you to leverage a marketplace of supported and secure apps, ensuring a seamless and secure integration.
