SOPHOS PRODUCT LIFECYCLE

Enhance your defenses and simplify management with cloud-based cybersecurity

Given the aggressiveness of cyber attacks the industry witnessed over the past year, and the ever-increasing pace of cybersecurity, customers need to ensure they patch and upgrade to stay ahead of the latest threats.

As several legacy Sophos products have reached End of Sale and have an imminent End of Life coming up, it is important that you check the retirement calendars below to confirm your Sophos products are active and in support.

Retirement Calendars

To help customers stay current, Sophos maintains retirement calendars for products and hardware. These retirement calendars identify End of Sale and End of Life dates so customers are aware of when products will no longer be sold, supported, or operational. When applicable, the calendars offer migration paths and successor product recommendations.

Migration Paths

Sophos will recommend a successor product for each product that reaches the End of Sale or End of Life phase in the Product Lifecycle. There are recommended migration paths for most Sophos products with a confirmed End of Life date.

Migration Assistance

Sophos offers professional services to assist with the migration to a successor product. For details on how Sophos Professional Services can assist with a successful migration, visit the Professional Services web page. You can also contact your local Sophos Sales Partner to discuss additional options.

Sophos strongly recommends following industry-standard migration best-practice principles. These include (but are not limited to): planning, testing, backing up, defining and testing a roll-back strategy, and being prepared to execute your roll-back strategy within your defined maintenance window in the event the steps provided are unsuccessful.
