This policy applies to all Secunia products, except as Secunia may otherwise expressly agree in writing. For specific lifecycle dates for the Secunia CSI, refer to the table below.
All Secunia product support services require an active Service Level Agreement subscription. Within this Lifecycle Policy, what constitutes a “version” is determined by Secunia. A given version's general availability (or “GA”) release date also serves as the GA release date for all subsequent Maintenance Releases issued for that version. When a new Maintenance Release becomes available (generally, once every three months), the previous release is supported (at the same level as the associated product version) for 12 months thereafter or until support for the product version ends, whichever comes first.
General Availability (GA)
General Availability means that the product is generally available for sale and there has been no EOS notification.
End of Sale (EOS)
The End of Sale date for a major release is reached when Secunia makes commercially available the next major release of the product. Products that have reached EOS are still supported by Secunia Development and QA with updates and maintenance releases.
End of Life (EOL)
The End of Life date for a major release is normally reached 3 years after the first major version of the product has been made generally available. Products that have reached EOL are no longer supported with updates and maintenance releases.
End of Product (EOP)
The End of Product date for a major release is normally reached six (6) months after the product is declared end of life, that is, three and one half (3.5) years after the product was made generally available.
