Executive summary

The purpose of this document is to review ESET’s End of Life policies, product-related support policies, and policies we follow for the support of various operating systems.

This document should serve as a source of information for ESET business customers, for whom clear and predictable End of Life policies can significantly contribute to effective IT security planning. We believe this document will help organizations keep their security policies up to date, preventing any disruptions to business continuity.

This End of Life document was inspired by industry best practices, as well as accepted standards. The policies are applied to all existing products and product versions, respecting the past commitments made to our customers. We have defined product categories and tailored support policies to each of them; you can also find information on how product versioning works and explanations of the product lifecycle stages.

We are fully aware that any transition can be painful, especially in a business environment. Therefore, from the moment our new policy is implemented, we are going to allocate a one-year transition period. During this time, the product versions that will have transitioned from Basic / Limited Support in the current state to EOL as a result of the new policy will still receive module updates. Basic Support only guarantees detection engine updates (formerly known as "virus signature database"). We will continue to send those and module updates to otherwise EOL-ed product versions for the duration of the transition period. The product versions that would naturally transition into the End of Life phase during this period will receive the same benefit.

Versioning Rules

ESET follows industry standards for product version numbering. See the example below on how to read the individual numbers found in the product version:

Versioning explained

ESET Endpoint Security version 8.0.2028.0 means

8.

Major version

0.

Minor version/Service release

2028.

Build number/Patch level

0

Additional differentiator
(e.g. language version)

  • Major version – Moving to a later version typically involves a major product overhaul, change in product architecture, or dropped operating system support for an earlier operating system version(s).
  • Minor version/Service release – Increasing this number means minor bug fixes and minor functionality changes compared to the previous version.
  • Build Number/Patch level – Indicates required automatic security and stability updates. No functionality changes are made.
Product Lifecycle

Each of our products fits into a specific stage of the product lifecycle. For the purpose of defining a complete End of Life policy we decided to categorize them into the following groups:

  • Products in active development – Products in the early or middle stages of the lifecycle and we plan to develop and sell them in the coming years. Products in active development regularly undergo the end of version procedure for earlier product versions (every time a new major version is released). There is also a procedure in place to allow for an extended period of limited support for certain product versions – for more details contact your ESET representative.
  • Products in maintenance – Products in a highly mature state and ESET only maintains them. There is no development of any new features. Products/services in maintenance are typically in extended Limited Support. Products in maintenance do not get releases guaranteeing compatibility with future operating system releases.
  • Products to be terminated – Products have not been developed or improved in any way for a long time, and they no longer make any commercial or strategic sense. These products undergo an internal product termination procedure, which results in the products complete End of Life.
Support Levels

These are the general support levels for ESET products and services. For specific support levels of individual products and product versions, refer to their corresponding sections in the document.

  • Full Support – This is understood industry-wide as providing the best efforts to serve customers by fixing all bugs and offering full functionality. We also offer wide-ranging assistance to our customers. All future operating system releases will be supported unless there is a major external hurdle that we cannot overcome with reasonable effort.
  • Limited Support – It is generally limited to Technical Support and Development Support, which is limited to bug fixing so there is no support for new operating system versions.
  • End of Life – At this stage of the product lifecycle, we offer zero support or assistance and do not guarantee the product’s functionality at all. The best we can do is guide the customer to the most appropriate migration path so that they upgrade to the latest equivalent product.

Transitional period
ESET implemented new End of life policy on July 1st, 2020. To help you with the changes this new policy brings, we established a one-year transitional period. During this time, the product versions that will have transitioned from Basic / Limited Support in the current state to end of life as a result of the new policy will still receive module updates. Basic Support only guarantees detection engine updates (formerly known as "virus signature database"). We will continue to send those and module updates to otherwise end of life product versions for the duration of the period. The product versions that would naturally transition into the End of life phase during this period will receive the same benefit.
The transitional period is not available for all ESET products.

ESET implemented new End of life policy on July 1st, 2020. To help you with the changes this new policy brings, we established a one-year transitional period. During this time, the product versions that will have transitioned from Basic / Limited Support in the current state to end of life as a result of the new policy will still receive module updates. Basic Support only guarantees detection engine updates (formerly known as "virus signature database"). We will continue to send those and module updates to otherwise end of life product versions for the duration of the period. The product versions that would naturally transition into the End of life phase during this period will receive the same benefit.
The transitional period is not available for all ESET products.

Support status explanation

Full Support is available when a new major release becomes generally available it is considered to be in Full Support and the last major release automatically transitions to the final phase - End of Life.

Limited Support is available when a new major release becomes generally available and if for some reason the previous major release version is not terminated, the last major release automatically switches from Full Support to Limited Support for a predefined period of time (usually for one year). After the predefined period of time, the previous release version reaches its End of Life.

Transitional period
ESET implemented new End of life policy on July 1st, 2020. To help you with the changes this new policy brings, we established a one-year transitional period. During this time, the product versions that will have transitioned from Basic / Limited Support in the current state to end of life as a result of the new policy will still receive module updates. Basic Support only guarantees detection engine updates (formerly known as "virus signature database"). We will continue to send those and module updates to otherwise end of life product versions for the duration of the period. The product versions that would naturally transition into the End of life phase during this period will receive the same benefit.
The transitional period is not available for all ESET products.
