Netgate Product Lifecycle

Designing firewalls and gateway appliances to meet your security expectations.

Product Lifecycle Policy

Netgate products are designed to provide years of protection for personal, commercial and Enterprise networks. The Product Lifecycle allows us to rapidly incorporate newer technologies.

Hardware General Availability

A Netgate hardware appliance is declared to be in General Availability (GA) status once all commercialization activities have been completed in accordance with a Netgate product launch. Typical commercialization activities include compliance testing, export certification, manufacturing and supply chain readiness, pricing, documentation, etc. A hardware product will remain in GA status until an End of Sale event occurs.

Hardware End of Life (EOL)

End of Life (EOL) will typically occur within 1-3 years after the EOS date. Exceptions to this policy may occur due to events outside of Netgate’s control.
