Support Lifecycle Policy

It is our standard policy is to provide support for the current version and last two versions of the software. 

This policy describes the phases during which our products are eligible for Support, patches, downloads, and access to the support portal.

  • Product is fully supported by Support and R&D and is available for download via the support portal
  • Maintenance releases and hot fixes are made available 
  • Enhancement requests are accepted and may be included in future releases

  • Support is available for this release/version and will use best efforts to provide workarounds or solutions. New code fixes will be provided, unless under extreme circumstances, and entirely at the discretion of SecureAuth. 
  • Enhancements are not accepted for this release
  • Customers are encouraged to move to a “Supported” release.

No Support

  • SecureAuth does not provide any active technical support for the product, however, access to the Support portal is still available which includes technical documentation, known workarounds and potential resolutions.
  • Support is available to assist with upgrading to the newer version.
  • Support is not required to provide assistance on this version.
