Microsoft Office 2013 end of support
News|by Jack Fannon|25 April 2022
Microsoft Office 2013 will reach the end of extended support on April 11, 2023.
How will this affect your organisation?
After Office 2013 reaches the end of support next April, Microsoft won’t provide any new security updates. This could mean that continued use of Office 2013 could increase your organisations exposure to security risks or impact on compliance obligations.
You may also experience some issues if you connect to 365 with an Office 2013 client. Since October 2020, Office 2013 is not a supported client to connect to Microsoft 365 services. The client versions of Office that are currently supported for connecting to Microsoft 365 Services are:
- Microsoft 365 Apps
- Office LTSC 2021
- Office 2019
- Office 2016
What do you need to do to prepare?
Your organisation should start upgrading to Microsoft 365 Apps. The system is designed to receive regular software and security updates, which will help your organisation help to defend against cyber threats.
Alternatively, if your organisation requires a static, unchanging product, consider moving to Office LTSC 2021. When evaluating your options, keep in mind the end of support dates for Office clients connecting to Microsoft 365 services.
