More than half of the enterprise workstations cannot run Windows 11

Microsoft has started to push windows 11 on October 5. Qualified windows 10 pcs can be upgraded to windows 11 for free. Meanwhile, new PCs pre installed with windows 11 will also be listed one after another.

However, it asset management software companies   Lansweeper’s latest research shows that since Microsoft announced windows 11, it teams in large enterprises have been under pressure to formulate attack plans; In order to launch the new operating system, they need a fast and cost-effective windows 11 readiness check to determine which machines are eligible and ineligible for upgrade. The results showed that 55% of workstations did not have the ability to upgrade.

Lansweeper said that although Microsoft allows anyone to manually install windows 11 without considering the CPU. However, automatic upgrading is possible only when the three key components of the computer CPU, ram and TPM meet the requirements required for upgrading at the same time. In addition, if you don’t meet the system requirements, you can’t guarantee windows 11 upgrade. Based on the data of about 30 million windows devices in 60000 organizations, lansweeper shows that on average, only 44.4% of workstations are eligible for automatic upgrade, while the rest will not be eligible.

More than half of the enterprise workstations cannot run Windows 11; Python 3.10.0 officially released; Android 12 releases Sina weekly

Specifically, only 44.4% of the CPUs of the tested workstations meet the system requirements for upgrading to windows 11, while 55.6% do not. Although most of them passed the ram test (91%), only about half of the tested workstation TPMS met the requirements, more than 19% failed, and 28% were incompatible with or not enabled.

Roel decneut, chief marketing officer of lansweeper, said: “Microsoft justifies the need for these requirements to alleviate security concerns, because many devices will not be upgraded, even some new devices on the market. On the other hand, this may actually expose a large number of devices to greater vulnerability risk. Those who cannot update to windows 11 – probably most enterprises in the short term – will continue to use windows 10. Microsoft plans to end its support for windows 10 in 2025, which means that it cannot provide more security patches for devices that cannot transition to its successor products. “
