Softchoice's analysis of more than 212,000 networking devices and 350 organizations across North America found 73 percent of businesses have end-of-support devices operating in their networks. The data was collected through our Cisco Contract TechCheck™, an assessment service that examines the state and health of an organization's network infrastructure.
End-of-support devices are like ticking time bombs that place organizations at a higher risk of security breaches, as well as lost productivity due to longer network outages and higher replacement costs when the devices finally go "BOOM!"
