Dell recently released a 60-Day Notification regarding some of their SonicWALL products. Support will end for Gen4 (and older) firewalls on July 1, 2013.
What does this mean if you are currently using a SonicWALL firewall? It means that after July 1st, you will no longer be able to receive technical support, software or firmware updates or hardware replacement from Dell or other vendors for these specific products.
Please refer to the chart below to see if your SonicWALL product will be affected by this notice:
All Gen4 firewalls that are covered under a Comprehensive GMS support contract are subject to this End of Support date. For Gen4 firewalls covered under a stand-alone support contract, Dell SonicWALL will honor the support contract until its expiration date, even if that date extends beyond July 1, 2013.
End of Support is also planned for the TZ 180 and TZ 190 series of firewalls. Sometimes referred to as “Gen4.5” products, the TZ 180 Series and TZ 190 Series continued to be sold after the products listed above were no longer available to purchase. Therefore, the End of Support date for these particular products is July 1, 2014.
If your firewall can be found in this chart, please call Teltek IT as soon as possible so we can evaluate your situation and get a plan in place before July. To maintain the integrity and security of your system, it would be best to either replace or upgrade your firewall well before July 1st, but we would be happy to conduct a site survey of the equipment at your office and review all options with you.
