Unlicensed software can render you liable to viruses and other malware attacks.
Time and time again we hear of systems operating without valid software licensing.
Not only is unlicensed software illegal, it has some nasty side effects. If you have unlicensed Microsoft software on your system, it is highly likely that vital system updates for security and stability will stop, making you susceptible to viruses, email and internet attacks.
The bottom line is if you donâ€™t need business software on a system â€“ donâ€™t install it. If you do need it then buy a license or look for free alternatives.
