Barracuda Networks Sunset Policy

  • Last updated on

Barracuda Networks is implementing a "sunset policy" to retire older versions of its products, discontinuing future fixes, enhancements, ongoing testing against those versions, and access to Technical Support.  Retiring older versions of Barracuda Networks products allows us to direct resources toward enhancing our products and providing support for more current versions used by the vast majority of Barracuda Networks customers.

Sunset Policy Provisions

  1. Product End-of-Life. Barracuda Networks may discontinue sale of a product at any time. Customers may only purchase new Energize Updates ("EU") for End of Sale products during the six-month period immediately after the End of Sale date.  After that time, Barracuda Networks may reject new orders for EU, including renewal orders. 
  2. End-of-Support. Barracuda Networks will only provide ongoing fixes and  enhancements for the current generally available ("GA") product versions. Customers must have a current support subscription to receive product updates and support. Security Updates may also be made available for prioritized security issues in prior releases as set forth in the chart below. Customers should upgrade to the current versions for the most up-to-date functionality, software fixes and security updates.  Barracuda Networks may, in its sole discretion, deliver security updates for prioritized security vulnerabilities in unsupported versions, however Customers may be required to purchase a newer version of the product to resolve the problem. Customers must have a current support subscription in order to receive support.

    Barracuda Networks strongly encourages customers to upgrade to the latest releases as soon as it is convenient.
