Here is some important news for customers using Sybari Antigen 8.0 for Exchange or Antigen 8.0 for SMTP Gateways to protect their Microsoft Exchange environment.

Microsoft has decided to extend the end-of-life for Sybari Antigen for Exchange 8.0 and Sybari Antigen for SMTP Gateways 8.0 from December 31, 2008 to December 31, 2009. This decision was made to accommodate the antivirus needs of customers who are still running versions of Exchange prior to Exchange 2000 and who have requested additional time to upgrade in 2009.

The terms of the Sybari Antigen for Exchange 8.0 and Sybari Antigen for SMTP Gateways 8.0 end-of-life extension are as follows:

  • No product support will be provided after December 31, 2009.
  • Customers will not be able to receive antivirus engine definition updates after December 31, 2009.
  • New customers will not be allowed to acquire or deploy Antigen for Exchange 8.0 between December 1, 2008 and December 31, 2009. Only customers currently running Sybari Antigen for Exchange 8.0 or Sybari Antigen for SMTP Gateway 8.0 will be supported.
  • If an existing Sybari Antigen for Exchange 8.0 or Sybari Antigen for SMTP Gateway 8.0 customer has a contract that expires between now and December 31, 2009, Microsoft will only extend the licensing agreement for the 8.0 version until December 31, 2009.

If you are an existing Microsoft customer, please contact your Microsoft Account Manager to extend your license .cfg files for these products. If you are not an existing Microsoft customer, please send an e-mail to fssadm@microsoft.com to extend your license .cfg files for these products.
