Support throughout product lifecycle

The support of a major release product starts with general availability (GA) and typically goes through these stages:

  1. Full Support
  2. Limited Support
  3. Basic Support

When a new major release product becomes generally available, the previous major release product is switched from Full Support to Limited support. The Limited Support phase lasts until a second successor product becomes generally available. The original product then transitions to the final phase - Basic Support. At the end of the Basic Support stage, the project will reach its End of Life. Please note that this article outlines the standard process. Extended support may be available on case-by-case basis.

Full Support
  • Availability of regular virus signature database updates and module updates
  • Support for new operating systems and new versions of operating systems
  • Confirmed problems and vulnerabilities addressed with patches and Service Releases
  • technical support is available
Limited Support
  • Availability of regular virus signature database updates and module updates
  • Severe problems, such as when the product or its main functionality is not working or is causing an instability of the system or contains a major vulnerability, addressed with patches and Service Releases
  • technical support is available but not all bugs will be fixed
  • No support of new versions of operating systems
