McAfee Email Security Solutions End-of-Life

As you are probably aware, Intel Security/McAfee made the decision to End-of-Life (EOL) McAfee Email Security Solutions, formerly known as MXLogic. The decision, published in the ServicePortal for SaaS Email and Web Security will seriously effect end users and resellers of their service since the product will no longer be offered.

McAfee is now focusing on investing in security solutions for the cloud, threat detection and management. This shift in focus required the elimination of other products such as McAfee Email Security Solutions.

On October 22, 2015 Intel announced McAfee Email Security Solutions would be End of Sale (EOS) as of January 11, 2016.

As your trusted IT advisor, we want to make sure that you are aware of the upcoming changes and important support dates and information.

  1. End of Sale- As of January 11, 2016, McAfee Email Security Solutions will no longer be sold.
  2. Full Service Support – Support will be available until End-of-Life on January 11, 2017.
  3. Archived Email – Extraction deadline for archived emails is 6 months following the archiving service expiration.

Winxnet and Intel Security have identified Proofpoint as the exclusively supported alternative for transition away from McAfee’s email security solutions.

The Winxnet IT Team is very well informed of this change and is currently migrating its clients to Proofpoint.  With many years of experience supporting cloud offerings and by supplying end user training materials well in advance of the change, the migrations have been seamless to date.
