Please review the Globalscape End of Life (EOL) and Support Life Policy described on our website.Technical support is provided in accordance with the policy

Can I get support after my version has entered EOL?

  • If you have a current Maintenance and Support plan, you will still receive limited/minimal support at the discretion of the Globalscape Support team; however, Globalscape will no longer release maintenance builds or "patches" for that version.
  • It is highly recommended that you upgrade to the latest version, as many "fixes" and new features are related to security and performance.
  • When you have an active Maintenance and Support Plan, you can update to the next version for free. (If your current version is more than 2 versions behind the most recently released version, upgrading is a stepped process.)
  • To view version history and download the latest version, go to https://www.globalscape.com/support, click "Support" under the relevant product name, then scroll down and click the "Download" link. Be sure to read the version history and upgrade instructions before upgrading the product. For complex installations, contact us to ask about our Deployment Services to help with the upgrade.

When does EOL start for my version?

The "EOL Start Date" begins when the next major version is released. Every major version has a minimum lifespan of 2 years. 

For example, for EFT v7.2, EOL began on 4/25/16, when v7.3 was released. Therefore, Partial Support ended on 10/27/17. You will continue to receive limited/minimal support for your build of 7.2 (e.g., v7.2.10) at the discretion of the Globalscape Support team, but Globalscape Engineering is no longer creating maintenance, patch, and "hot fix" builds for v7.2.
