F-Secure Internet Gatekeeper on Linux solution silently discontinued?

etomcatetomcat Posts: 1,318 Superuser

Dear Sirs,

 

This week we wished to renew a 20-seat "FSAV IGK 5.50 on Linux" license for one of our customers but F-Secure staff responded that they no longer deal in that product. I can't understand that, since:

 

- Official company "EOL" documentation show it as a current and supported product:

 

https://www.f-secure.com/content/dam/f-secure/en/business/supported-products/collaterals/digital/f-secure-business-suite_supported-products.pdf

 

Product version: F-Secure Internet Gatekeeper 5.50 on Linux
Release date: 14.6.2017
End-of-Life date: 31.12.2020
Status: Current version
Security Hotfixes provided: yes

Non-Security Hotfixes provided: yes

 

- The "FSAV IGK 5.50" product webpage is available for view and download on the F-Secure portal as usual:

https://www.f-secure.com/en/business/downloads/internet-gatekeeper

 

- The above webpage shows that "FSAV IGK 5.50" product received a post-installation hotfix this July, so it is a maintained software and hasn't been abandoned.

 

Please tell us what's going on? If the FSIGKLNX license cannot be renewed, I'm afraid we may have to offer a solution from a competing vendor's portfolio.

 

Thanks in advance, Yours Sincerely: Tamas Feher, Hungary.

    Dear F-Secure,

    I wish to ask if the new "F-Secure Atlant" product is essentially the version 6 of FSAV Internet Gatekeeper on Linux? (We were told half a year ago that FSAV IGK 5 on Linux is discontinued and renewals cannot be sold for it.)

    Thanks in advance, Yours Sincerely: Tamas Feher, 2F 2000 Kft., Hungary.
