End-of-Support Software Report List

The importance of replacing software before its End-of-Support (EOS) is critical. EOS occurs when software updates, patches, and other forms of support are no longer offered, resulting in software becoming prone to future security vulnerabilities.

Using unsupported software and firmware/hardware, puts organizations at risk in the following ways:

  • Subsequent vulnerability disclosures place your organization at significant risk.
  • Subject your organization to regulatory compliance issues/violations.
  • Increases support costs by having a need for extended support.

Replacing software and firmware/hardware before it reaches EOS will significantly reduce any risks and costs associated with EOS. The process of finding EOS dates and locating all the instances of obsolete products can be a difficult and time-consuming task. The Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) compiles a monthly report for EOS software with dates in the next 12 months.
