I wear all hats at our small firm. We still rely on a database running on sql srvr express (2012) on server 2012r2 -DC.

I know both are beyond support.

Is there anyway to harden the system without upgrading?

We are low on $$$.

Should i just install win 10 or 11 pro and set up the wrkstns as peer to peer (ie workgrp)?

beyond cybersecurity database express install low pro running server sql support system
