As Microsoft quotes:

“Microsoft Support Lifecycle policy provides consistent and predictable guidelines for product support availability when a product releases and throughout that product’s life. By understanding the product support available, customers are better able to maximize the management of their IT investments and strategically plan for a successful IT future.”

They recommend to customers running on an older version of Internet Explorer to migrate to one of the above supported operating systems and browser combinations by January 12, 2016.
