Compliance violations for faxing and Windows Server 2003 users

If your organization or users are still using Windows Server 2003 after July 14, 2015, be prepared for the consequences. Since Microsoft will end support for Windows Server 2003 this month, anyone still using Windows Server 2003 is at risk of a security and exposure breach. Malware and cyber threats can go undetected in unsupported operating systems, which alone is a huge risk for organizations.

However, did you know that these risks also put an organization in danger of non-compliance with several regulations such as HIPAA, PCI, Sarbanes-Oxley and others? Running unsupported operating systems, such as Windows XP, might be enough to make the Federal government take a closer look at organizations which are bound by these important regulations.

This non-compliance translates to any fax server infrastructure that may be running on Windows Server 2003. If you have a fax server deployed with Windows Server 2003, take a deep breath, and call OpenText.

If you need an on-premises fax server running on either Windows 2008 or Windows 2012, we’ve got you covered.

Or eliminate the need for any operating system for your faxing by using OpenText Fax2Mail, an enterprise-grade, 100% cloud fax service. We can do that, too.

Either way, don’t let your operating system put your faxing operations at risk of non-compliance.
