Re:   Versions of Symantec Control Compliance Suite and related products previous to CCS v8.5 are beginning the End-of-Life process.  These versions have been supplanted with a subsequent Major Release (CCS v8.5, which is now Generally Available).

Dear Valued Symantec Customer:

This letter is to notify you that Symantec Corporation will begin EOVL (End-of-Life) for the product and versions listed above.  Please consult the detailed chart below for the exact EOL start date for your affected product.  The versions of Control Compliance Suite (CCS), bv-Control, BindView Policy Manager and RMS Console, and other products listed above, have been supplanted by a subsequent Major Release (CCS version 8.5, which is now generally available).

Existing customers of the products listed above will be able to purchase additional licenses for twelve (12) months following the respective EOL dates, provided that such version remains on the Symantec price list as available for ordering.  Normally, only the immediately prior version remains available for ordering.    Please check with your Symantec account representative for additional details.

The current version of CCS is version 8.5.  All customers that are current on maintenance are entitled to upgrade from prior versions to CCS version 8.5.

Customers should note that the respective CCS module versions, including bv-control, 8.2 and prior will not adhere to the Symantec standard support policy.  Instead, CCS version 8.2 and prior follows the legacy Bindview support policy, which will limit support only to the immediately prior version and only for a period of 12 months from release of the next version.  Currently, CCS version 8.2 is the immediately prior version; CCS 8.5 was GA globally as of 8 June 2008.  As a result, all CCS version 8.2 products will be in a Partial Support state until June 30, 2008.  

The transition from end of standard support to partial support is listed below for each affected product. The last day for “partial” support is also listed below for each affected product. 

How to get more information

Symantec is committed to protecting your investment and helping you achieve success with our compliance solutions.  If you have any questions regarding today’s announcement please contact your Symantec sales representative for further clarification and assistance.

Thank you for using Symantec products and services.

Sincerely,

Symantec Corporation
