RE: VirusScan Enterprise 8.0i End of Life Statement

It looks like they have decided to extend the support for VSE 8.0i another year. That is good news since we still have it on about 100 plus systems. These are systems too slow for considering upgrading to VSE 8.5i.

Below is the article that explains the update:
