Server 2008/2008 R2 Support

Can anyone tell me McAfee's intention to support Server 2008 & 2008 R2 on their VSE product? We have several servers 100 or so that are still on 2008. I have noticed that on 2008 we cannot move past Update 15. Update 16 will state it is not supported on that Windows version. Will DAT/Engine update keep being distributed for these OS versions? If I move to ENS will that support continue or does it have an official end date? Thank You

Re: Server 2008/2008 R2 Support

Hi @beastman 

Thank you for reaching out to community. 

Unfortunately Win 2008 and Win 2008 R2 are announced End of life by Microsoft. 

Also Virus Scan Enterprise is also end of life now.

Details on Dat update and supportability is discussed on the below KB.

For ENS, Win 2008 R2 is supported platform, but Win 2008 is not supported. 

More details on Win 2008 R2 support is available in the KB below.
