And to add up, customers who want to upgrade to Data Loss Prevention version 9.0 "CAN" use their version 8 license keys since it's forwards compatible.

Thanks and Regards Lynelle

Added info:

If you have DLP 8.0 and eligible with an upgrade to DLP 9.0, you will recieve an upgrade notification ID but you will not recieve any license key for DLP 9.0. You will only recieve license keys for DLP 9.0 if you are renewing the product and purchasing a new product or adding the products.


DLP 8.0 is forwards comptible to DLP 9.0
DLP 9.0 is backwards compatible to DLP 8.0

Kind Regards,
