Products Reaching End of Support for 2020
Updated: Jun 18, 2019
Production use of software in a networked environment is typically surrounded by security processes to mitigate newly discovered security vulnerabilities. Software patch management is one of the fundamental security processes that organizations employ to mitigate risk and ensure system compliance. Software vendors usually update software to fix discovered vulnerabilities and release new software versions or patches to existing software versions.
When a software vendor discontinues updates for security-related issues, newly discovered vulnerabilities become persistent threats in an organization's attack surface. When a software application is widely deployed, the attack surface becomes a significant risk.
It is important, from a corporate security perspective, that these end-of-life products should be upgraded to shield corporations from the inherent security risks of end-of-life software involves.
Products governed by the Fixed Policy reaching end of support: The following products, governed by the Fixed Policy, have announced the end of support in 2020. There will be no new security updates, non-security updates, free or paid assisted support options or online technical content updates.
