Are you ready for the McAfee SaaS service end of life?
In order to further their goal of creating an integrated, fast, full-featured computer protection system, Intel Security (McAfee) have announced the retirement of some of their older, standalone products.
The announcement was made back in October 2015 and includes all of the following services:
- McAfee Email Gateway (appliance hardware, virtual appliance, and blade servers)
- McAfee Email Protection
- McAfee Quarantine Manager
- McAfee SaaS Email Archiving
- McAfee SaaS Email Encryption
- McAfee SaaS Email Protection
- McAfee SaaS Email Protection and Continuity
- McAfee SaaS Endpoint and Email Protection
How this will affect you
As of January 11th 2017, these products and services will no longer be supported by or maintained by Intel Security (McAfee).
The end of life means that, after that date, should any new viruses, malware or other malicious software be developed and released, your emails will not be protected from them if you continue to run the outdated McAfee SaaS services.
Similarly, if any bugs in the McAfee SaaS services are discovered, or if they conflict with later editions of operating systems such as a new Windows or Mac update, Intel Security (McAfee) won’t fix the problem.
In order to keep your business emails protected and secure, you should consider moving to a new email protection software that is kept up to date and actively maintained.
