Why ESET Endpoint v5 are legacy and no longer supported?

Recommended Posts

If Marcos's attention, ESET Endpoint Antivirus and Security 5 and Remote Administrator 5 are discontinued on 2020's ends.

If Endpoint 5 suite to Endpoint 9 suite upgrade now them.

As stated before, V5 generation of applications is more than 10 years old, and do not provide sufficient protection against modern threats. It´s not viable for a security / software vendor to support such broad set of application versions. We kept those apps running even when a modern replacement was available (V6+), even after Microsoft stopped supporting the operating systems it was running on (XP, Vista, 7). 

As the usage of those product dropped significantly, ESET started to enforce its end of life policy, so we can invest our resources into making our modern products better, more robust, and capable of stopping modern threat types.  

I would recommend you to check: https://support-eol.eset.com/en/index.html 

And the following KB article, where the policy is explained, including current version support status: https://support.eset.com/en/kb3592-is-my-eset-product-supported-eset-end-of-life-policy-business-products
