End of Support Details

We strongly encourage our users to upgrade to the latest version to benefit from the new features, critical bug fixes, enhancements, and the flexibility to opt for special add–ons and plug–ins. After every major release, we support the legacy releases for a considerable period of time to help our customers upgrade and⁄or migrate. With the general availability of Firewall Analyzer 12.x since March 2016, we have decided to declare end of support (EOS) for the earlier major releases viz., Version 6.x, Version 7.x, and Version 8.x as mentioned above

We will continue to extend technical support for Version 8.5, taking care to see that you have ample time to upgrade and the process is hassle free.
