Support for Windows 7 will expire on January 14, 2020. With this in mind, many companies and private users have already begun planning migration, but not everyone will make it before the deadline, and some will not change the system despite the lack of support. Microsoft has just prepared for them Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU) – a paid offer, under which security updates will be provided until January 2023. Previous findings showed that it would not be so easy to get to ESU. However, Microsoft decided to get rid of these restrictions.
While many of you are already on the road to implementing Windows 10, we understand that everyone is at a different stage in the upgrade process. With this in mind, we announce today that until January 2023 we are extending the availability of paid Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU) for companies of all sizes (Previously, Windows 7 ESU was only available to customers of Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Enterprise in Volume Licensing) . Windows 7 ESU will be sold for individual devices with a price increasing each year.
As of December 1, 2019, companies of all sizes can purchase ESU through the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program. This means that customers can work with partners to get the security they need, getting ready to switch to Windows 10.
– Jared Spataro, CVP Microsoft 365
As you can see, additional updates will be easily available regardless of the size of the company and the number of positions. When announcing ESU's offer, Microsoft may not have precise availability plans yet or simply delayed disclosing them. It is worth recalling that buying ESU is not the only way to extend the life of Windows 7. The second is the service Windows Virtual Desktop, under which these updates will be provided at no additional charge.
