Our SAV 10.x Server Corporate Edition still recieve an Definition Update

Created: 06 Dec 2012 | 2 comments

Hi All,

Already read this article before : http://www.symantec.com/connect/forums/be-aware-sy...

On that article said that "On July 4, 2012, SAV 10.x and SCS 3.x reached End of Support Life (EOSL).  This includes ALL maintenance packs and patches"

Does it mean that site didn't provide the new definition again for this SAV Version? if it's true, i have several question about this. for exam :

1. we still seeing several server already update with the latest definition? 

2. What it's mean?

 

Regards,

Wandi Budiman

Definition updates usually cease on the End of Support Life date. In this case it is 7/4/12.

EOSL means that technical support will no longer be provided for SAV CE 10.x.  All support services, including without limitation, virus definition updates, bug fixes/patches and engineering modification, for SAV CE 10.x will end on the EOSL date.

FURTHER SUPPORT OPTIONS

For a fee, a Partial Support period and an extension of the virus definitions can be made available for up to 12 months past the EOSL date. For more information, read the document How to request a virus definition extension for Symantec AntiVirus 10.x Corporate Edition beyond its End-of-Support-Life date.

 

The Virus definitions are still available on the Symantec site for Manual download.

However, as far as I understand these definitions are not available after the EOSL date from Symantec Liveupdate server unless you make a request for the definitions extension.

Have you applied for Extension to the virus definitions?

Hi Wandi,

I agree with Mick's Comment in Thread:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/our-sav-10x-server-corporate-edition-still-recieve-definition-update-0

Do be aware that any updates currently coming down are untested on SAV, can be discontinued at any time, and won't work with older SAV clients or servers.   Also that SAV certified definitions only come out once per day instead of SEP's two or three times per day, and only offer traditional signature-based AV protection (no IPS, PTP, firewall, etc). 

Definitely use this time to migrate to SEP's better protection rather than entrust your enterprise's security to an unsupported product like SAV! &: )
