May 1, 2014: End of support for Outpost Pro versions older than 8.0
Agnitum will no longer provide technical support or updates for all versions of Outpost Firewall Pro, Outpost Antivirus Pro, and Outpost Security Suite Pro older than v8.0.
Effective May 1, 2014, older Outpost versions will stop receiving updates.
Agnitum ceases support of Outpost 7.x products first released back in May 2010 to ensure up-to-date protection against evolving Internet threats. The protection that older products may fail to deliver.
Users of Outpost product versions from 8.0 onwards may enjoy peace of mind and continue with their current products, however, it’s always recommended to use the latest cutting edge technology.
Having said that, we urge users with active license to upgrade their Outpost protection to version 9.0 free of charge.
To learn more about Outpost 9, check out What’s new in 9.0?
We’ll do our best to make this transition as smooth as possible and minimize any inconvenience to you:
- Compatibility with older versions of Windows is not an issue; Outpost 9 solutions support all Windows platforms from XP onwards, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
- If you have an active license for an earlier version, you can upgrade to the appropriate 9.0 product free of charge. Just download Outpost 9 and enter your current license key into the registration screen and you’re all set.
- If your existing license has expired, you can take advantage of a 40% to 50% discount off the regular price when you renew with Outpost 9!
Remember, after May 1st, 2014, users of older Outpost Pro versions will not receive update services, including antivirus, antispyware, ad and site blocking, firewall rules, and host protection module updates.
To ensure your protection stays current and up to date, check your product version number by placing the cursor on Outpost icon in the system tray (usually at the lower right corner of the screen). Full instructions for upgrade can be found at: http://www.agnitum.com/support/upgradeprotection.php
Unless your version number is 8.0 or higher, follow this link to download the latest version from our website and install it on top of the existing installation. Follow the wizard to complete the upgrade and enjoy your updated Internet security.
The migration deadline is May 1, 2014, but we strongly recommend you don’t wait until the last minute.
