The following major products will reach the end of support by 2020. End of support means security updates are no longer provided, and it is recommended that you upgrade to the latest cloud or on-premise version to remain secure.
For customers requiring more time to move to the latest product, the Extended Security Update (ESU) program is available for certain legacy products as a last resort option. The ESU program provides security updates only for up to 3 years, after the End of Support date. Contact your account manager, partner or device manufacturer for more information.
