Atlassian leads in Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Service Management, Q4 2023, with Jira Service Management. Revolutionize collaboration, eliminate legacy constraints, and accelerate success.

This transition to Atlassian Cloud is not just a strategic move; it’s a fundamental step in protecting your business from the top 5 security risks associated with using unsupported server products.

Understanding the Risks:

1. Unpatched Vulnerabilities:

After February 15th, server products will no longer receive security patches and updates, leaving your business exposed to potential security risks. The absence of timely updates can lead to unaddressed vulnerabilities, making it easier for malicious actors to exploit weaknesses and gain unauthorized access. This not only increases your security risk but also places an additional burden on your IT teams, diverting their focus from strategic initiatives.

2. Violating Privacy and Compliance:

Industries like healthcare and finance, with stringent privacy and compliance regulations, face severe implications when using unsupported server products. The heightened risk of vulnerability exploits increases the likelihood of non-compliance, potentially resulting in legal consequences and financial penalties. Migrating to Atlassian Cloud ensures that your organization aligns with industry standards, mitigating the risks associated with data breaches.

3. Downtime and Potential Data Loss:

Unsupported software exposes your organization to significant downtime, whether caused by unintentional disruptions or deliberate actions from external actors. This downtime impacts operational efficiency and poses the threat of data loss or manipulation, hindering your ability to provide seamless customer support. Atlassian Cloud offers a secure environment, minimizing the potential for such disruptions.

4. Obsolete Security Technology:

Beyond losing technical support and security updates, relying on unsupported server products means missing out on the latest advancements in security technology. As cyber threats evolve, having access to cutting-edge security features becomes crucial. Migrating to Atlassian Cloud ensures your system stays current with state-of-the-art security measures, enhancing your defence against emerging threats.

5. Risks from Unsupported Marketplace Apps:

With the end of support, you can no longer acquire new apps for existing server licenses, amplifying your vulnerability to security threats. Marketplace partners will cease providing technical support, security updates, or bug fixes, further multiplying the risks. By migrating to Atlassian Cloud, you not only ensure continuous access to a thriving marketplace but also benefit from enhanced security measures inherent in the cloud platform.
