Product Life Cycle

The product lifecycle is an essential aspect of the cybersecurity business. The management of different product versions, compatibility with operating systems and third-party products and the versioning policy are all part of Stormshield’s Product Lifecycle. Our goal is to provide you with maximum visibility of how Stormshield products are evolving.

Up-to-date products vs. obsolete products

Why keep a product up to date? There are numerous benefits to be gained from keeping a product up to date: this allows you to maintain an optimal level of security, to evolve in line with your needs and to extend the product’s lifespan. Where an obsolete product version may contain security flaws, an up-to-date product version is the first line of defence against cyber intrusions. Each new product release has its own set of functional and security patches, along with additional features.

In order to follow these developments over time, Stormshield operates on a three-stage schedule: End of Sales, End of Renewals and End of Life. This gives customers the time to upgrade or to migrate to up-to-date products. Please note that after the end-of-life date of a product, it is no longer maintained (in terms of updates, hardware warranties and support), unless special conditions are granted by Stormshield.
