What's inside

Microsoft's decision to sunset Skype for Business Server (SFB Server) prompts organizations around the globe to revisit their communication strategies. Maintaining old software without complementary support usually involves a lot of effort, and if you don't switch from Skype for Business Server by October 2025, you will not receive any security updates or patches, leaving your business vulnerable to cyber attacks.

If you intend to remain on-premises and your company is not comfortable exposing sensitive information to third-party cloud providers, the time to look for a suitable replacement is NOW.
