End-of-Support Software Report List

10/1/2016 to 6/30/2017 

The importance of updating software before its End-of-Life (EOL) and End-of-Support (EOS) should not be taken lightly or ignored. EOL occurs when the software is retired, although the vendor/manufacture can (and generally does) continue to support the software until the EOS date. EOS occurs when software updates, patches, and other forms of support are no longer offered, resulting in software becoming prone to future security vulnerabilities. Vendors and manufacturers often use these terms interchangeably, although different vendors and manufacturers may have slightly different definitions for EOL and EOS. For this reason, it is important to check with the individual vendor/manufacturer.
