So for example, customers who are running IE10 or earlier on Windows 7 will no longer receive security updates or technical support and must migrate to IE11.

Microsoft have provided tools (such as Enterprise Mode) to help organisations move to the latest version of Internet Explorer. Assistance with this migration is a service that Thomas Duryea can provide.

More information can be found on the [Microsoft Support Lifecycle](https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/lifecycle#gp/Microsoft-Internet-Explorer) website.
