MEG EOL 1 year after we Transitioned from Ironmail
Sorry just have to rant here
I'm really ticked off Intel is yanking the entire product especially since we JUST transitioned from Ironmail to MEG a year ago. We have been Ironmail customers since 2004 and spent nearly a year getting all our settings and configs ported over to MEG just to have Intel/Mcafee nuke the product a year after that. It is ridiculous they did this. Had we known at the time the MEG's would not have any long term support we would have just gone with a completely different product instead of trusting the Ironmail ----> MEG transition. This is really crappy to do this to a corporate product. It would have been much better to just EOL Ironmail and MEG last year instead of this type of treatment.

It is pretty lame.
As I said to the Proofpoint folks after seeing their presentation at FOCUS "you can't polish this MEG EOL turd, but I suppose the glitter you can roll it in is that your solution certainly seems way better poised to block more of the obvious phishes that get past MEG today."
Our appliances are 4 years old here, so the more I think about it the happier I am that Intel decided to exit a place where they had a lot of catchup to do, and give us recommendation of a leader that has the full faith and credit of McAfee to play well with our DLP solution.
It's more complicated that I'm afraid at least for appliance owners. If you own appliances, your support on the hardware ends 5 years from the purchase of that hardware. If you want support beyond that you have til January 11th 2016 to purchase new hardware, or go virtual on it.
And of course, "supported" and "still works decently" are two different things. I'm not sure how useful the spam filtering is going to be in 2020, for instance.
