|Microsoft has announced extended support for Windows XPe has ended.
What does this mean for Unitec users?
PCI compliance requires computer systems to be promptly updated as security vulnerabilities are identified. Car wash operators who continue to operate with Windows XPe-based products will no longer have access to these updates and their PCI compliance and system security will be at risk. Additionally, products that operate on XPe will be limited to the use of older versions of product software (Sierra version 1.63 or earlier). These software versions are no longer supported and users will no longer have access to bug fixes or feature updates.
To ensure your payment systems are secure and PCI compliance is unaffected, we advise moving from XPe to the Windows POSREADY7 Operating System. This upgrade, which may also include hardware updates, allows products to operate on the latest versions of production software while providing users with support and access to feature updates.
