We are currently using Scan Engine 5.2.11 to scan for file upload on our web server. We have purchase license and maintenance for Scan Engine up to Jan 2015. Now that Scan Engine will hit EOL by 2014, do we still entitle to definition update after EOL?

As for the API, how much code code change is required to make our web app compatible to with the new Protection Engine? We're using the .Net library from Symantec to forward the file to Scan Engine.
