Overview

This article provides information on the retirement of platforms and operating systems that are supported by Sophos Endpoint Security and Control.

Retirement is when all urgent software fixes, protection updates and support will end. The date shown is the last date for support. Generally, there will be no software changes made in the preceding three months before retirement. For example, a retirement date of 30 June 2013 will have its last software engine update in late March / early April of 2013. Protection updates (e.g. Identity files or IDE Files) will continue to be provided until 30 June 2013.

Maintenance is when feature development of Sophos Anti-Virus for the operating system will end. Maintenance will end 12 months before the retirement date.
