WatchGuard Legacy Products

WatchGuard Technologies is strongly committed to providing industry-leading products and services. As the market continues evolving towards more complex levels of network security, WatchGuard will periodically announce End-of-Sale and End-of-Life lifecycle milestone information along with migration recommendations for our valued customers.

As described in WatchGuard's Official EOL Policy, all WatchGuard products and services will enter into an End-of-Sale (EOS) period prior to End-of-Life (EOL). Product EOS dates will be up to five years prior to product EOL and all EOL communications will start with an official EOL Intent Announcement at least 60 days prior to the product's EOS date.

Once an End-of-Sale date is announced, you may continue to order products while limited stock is available. Customers with an active Support subscription will receive continued technical and limited software support until the End-of-Life.
