General product lifecycle policies

Overview

Products reach their end of life for various reasons. These reasons may be due to changes in demand, technology innovation and changes in competitive landscape, or the products simply mature over time and are replaced by new ones.

While this is an established part of the overall product life cycle, WithSecure recognizes that end-of-life milestones often prompt customers to review the way in which such milestones impact the WithSecure products in their environments.

With this in mind, we have set out WithSecure's End of Life Policy to help customers better manage product end-of-life transition and to understand the role that WithSecure can play in helping them to migrate to alternative WithSecure products and solutions.

Risk of using product after their End-of-Life date

The threat landscape is constantly evolving, which also means changes in the protection offered by WithSecure. Old products cannot respond to all the current threats.

Security fixes and non-security fixes are not provided for unsupported product versions. Virus definition updates are not tested with End-of-Lifed products. This may decrease the protection capability and reliability of old products, causing, for example, the malfunctioning of the product, conflicts with third party software, false positives and negatives.

WithSecure Product policies WithSecure Elements Detection and Response service

Version change policy

The product lifecycle consists of major, minor, and maintenance versions of the endpoint sensor. Typical changes in the sensor per version type include:

  • Major (M.0)
  • Distinctively new product generation or significant changes in the product functionality, performance, or security
  • New integration with WithSecure or 3rd party services
  • Minor (x.N)
  • New features and improvements
  • Support for new operating systems
  • Maintenance (x.x.C)
  • Maintenance releases (also known as patches) address critical defects or vulnerabilities
  • In principal, maintenance releases do not introduce changes to the existing functionality
  •  

WithSecure reserves the right to discontinue or deprecate existing functionality from a new (major or minor) product version based on changes in the threat landscape, market situation, or any other business reason. All such changes are noted in the product release notes.

 

Product version support policy

The product version policy is applied to the endpoint sensors related to WithSecure Elements Detection & Response Service solution. WithSecure's Security Cloud and other backend systems used by the application follow an internal lifecycle policy and do not require any actions from customers. WithSecure updates Security Cloud and other services without impact to the application functionality and performance.

Major and minor version support for the product is a minimum of 12 months from general availability (GA) or until 3 months after the release of the next major/minor version, whichever is shorter.

Maintenance releases do not extend the lifespan. A new maintenance release automatically deprecates any previous maintenance release within the same major/minor version.

 

Product update policy

WithSecure Elements Detection & Response Service sensor application can be updated by installing a new version. WithSecure highly recommends that you validate a new version of the sensor in staging environments before deploying it to production.

Network sensors and honeypots are updated remotely by WithSecure.

Customers are responsible for updating WithSecure sensor applications in their production and staging environments and making sure that they are using the officially supported version.

 

End-of-life communication policy

WithSecure makes end-of-life product announcements on the End-of-Life Announcements page. We encourage customers to visit the site regularly as it contains useful information regarding WithSecure's end-of-life program.

To inform partners and customers well in advance of an approaching end-of-life milestone, WithSecure sends an electronic notification at least 30 days prior to a product's end of life.

 

Change policy

WithSecure reserves the right to change this policy without prior notice, in which case the new policy will be made available to partners and customers on the supported products page.
