What Happened to GFI EndPointSecurity?
GFI EndPointSecurity has reached End of Engineering (EoE)
“End of Engineering: No new releases, minor releases, defect logging or defect fixes for affected products. Customers can continue to use EoE products unencumbered and add/subtract user licenses as necessary. Customer Support will continue to respond to issues and use reasonable efforts to assist customers, but no new, tested corrections will be generated. Latest versions of software and fixes remain available for download.”
– GFI end-of-engineering announcement
What Does End-of-Engineering Mean for Existing GFI EndPointSecurity Users?
No more security & compatibility updates
Using GFI EndPointSecurity on a computer running Windows 10 version 1803 or later causes a fatal Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) error to occur.
Error: UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP because of FLMGR.SYS
Businesses that follow cybersecurity best practices need a GFI EndPointSecurity alternative that is regularly updated to remain compatible with the latest version of Windows.
“The latest version of EndPointSecurity supports Windows operating systems up to Windows 10 version 1709. Due to the End of Engineering status of the product, this issue will not be fixed.” – GFI
Reduced customer support
Support for GFI EndPointSecurity has been greatly scaled back. Without reliable customer support, GFI users have struggled without a solution to their problems.
“They’ve essentially gotten rid of everyone, moved to a model where there is a support team who supports multiple companies and doesn’t provide working solutions.”
“I had a ticket open for 2 months that was never addressed. We just gave up and moved away from GFI.”
“I have had a ticket open with them for 7 weeks now that affects a production system we need for PCI compliance, but they don’t seem to care” – Spiceworks Community
