Sophos Utm 9 End Of Life
Everyone who is using Sophos UTM 9 should be aware that the end of its life cycle is approaching fast.
In this guide, we will look at what that means and what steps you should take to ensure your network remains secure and up-to-date.
Overview of Sophos UTM 9 and End-of-Life Dates.
Sophos UTM 9 is the latest version of Sophos endpoint, network, and data protection solutions and was released in 2017. The end-of-life date for Sophos UTM 9 was recently announced as June 30, 2021.
After this date, support services and product updates will no longer be available for the product.
All users must upgrade to a supported version before this date in order to continue receiving protection from the latest threats.
Migration Options to Newer Products.
Sophos UTM 9 customers have several options available for migrating to newer products.
Customers can choose to migrate their existing configurations and data to a new Sophos UTM 10 or a standalone
Endpoint Protection solution, depending on their specific needs.
Both the UTM 10 migration process and the Endpoint Protection migration process are straightforward and
reasonably simple once all necessary information has been gathered.
What Will the Impact Be if I Don’t Upgrade?
If you don’t upgrade your Sophos UTM 9 product before its end-of-life, your system will become unsupported and potentially exposed to security risks.
As newer products are released, more bugs and exploits surface, while old devices remain vulnerable due to the lack of updates.
Additionally, you will miss out on features and functionalities that are included with newer products as well as advanced protection from new threats.
