About the Software End of Life Page

To access this page, click Trust > Software EOL.

The Software End of Life page helps you monitor the integrity of the OSs running on the devices in the network and keep them up to date with the latest supported releases.

Paragon Automation automatically tracks the versions of software running on the targets in the network. It provides information about a device whose OS is nearing its EOL date or is already past its EOL date. The graphical timeline provides the OS software EOL information at a glance.

The page provides a red, yellow, or green icon (next to the OS version) depending on the EOL date.

  • A red icon indicates that the software has crossed the EOL date.

  • A yellow icon indicates that the software is nearing its EOL date.

  • A green icon indicates that the software's EOL date is not in the immediate future.

You can view the software support information, such as the release date, EOL date, and the date after which the software will not be supported, by clicking the software version on the timeline. You can also see a list of devices running each software version. Click the EOL date to view a list of devices that will reach EOL on that date.
