F-Secure end-point protection clients and the Microsoft operating system life cycle policy

This discussion has a more recent version.

Issue:


I'm using an operating system on my endpoints for which Microsoft is ending extended support. 

What impact does this have on my servers and workstations running an F-Secure end-point client like:

  • Computer Protection
  • Server Protection
  • Client Security
  • Server Security 
  • Email and Server Security

Resolution:

If you continue using the F-Secure end-point protection client product on the operating system that has reached end-of-life, F-Secure cannot guarantee proper operation of the product on this particular operating system platform, especially if resolving a particular problem would require support from the operating system vendor (Microsoft). Also, a future product update from F-Secure can remove support for the not-supported operating system.

We therefore recommend our customers to upgrade to a supported version of the operating system as soon as possible.
