ProductsSophos Product Lifecycle

This post provides information on upcoming lifecycle milestones for some network and SASE products.

End-of-Life: Sophos Firewall OS (SFOS) v19.0

Per our lifecycle policy, we are announcing an end-of-life (EOL) date of April 30, 2024, for Sophos Firewall OS (SFOS) major release version 19.0 (includes GA and all Maintenance Release (MR) versions).

This early announcement is intended to give customers and partners sufficient time to plan an upgrade to a newer version.

With the wealth of new features and improvements already available in SFOS v20, there are plenty of good reasons to upgrade.

End-of Support: ZTNA Gateway on Amazon AWS Platform

We are announcing an end-of-support date of March 31, 2024, for native ZTNA gateways deployed on AWS. This applies to both the on-premises and Sophos Cloud Gateway deployment modes.

The migration path for customers is to deploy the integrated Sophos Firewall  ZTNA gateway on AWS.
