Product lifecycle

Each of our products fits into a specific stage of the product lifecycle. To define a comprehensive End of Life policy, we have categorized them into the following groups:

1. Products in active development

These products are in the early or middle stages of the lifecycle.

Products in active development regularly undergo the end of version procedure for earlier product versions (every time a new major version is released).

2. Products in maintenance

These products are in a highly mature state and ESET only maintains them. There is no development of any new features. Products in maintenance do not get releases guaranteeing compatibility with future operating system releases.

3. Products to be terminated

These products undergo an internal product termination procedure, which results in the products complete End of Life.
