Symantec DLP Platform Support Question
Symantec DLP v11 currently supports detection server installation on the following Operating Systems:
- Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition SP2 (32-bit)
- Windows Server 2008, Enterprise Edition (64-bit) R2 or higher
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Update 2 or later
As of 7/13/2010, Microsoft has discontinued mainstream support for Windows Server 2003 and customers need to buy an Extended Support contract for patching and support.
For the next major release of Symantec DLP (year-end 2011, Q1 2012), Product Management is planning to discontinue support for Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition and 32 bit versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Will this be a significant problem for you? Please let us know your thoughts.
