Dear IBM BigFix Customers,
If you have purchased the IBM BigFix Protection (CPM) product, we would like to get your attention to very important information related with the product. IBM has announced End of Support for BigFix Protection, effective December 31, 2017. Existing BigFix Protection customers will get product support until that date or the expiration of the current S&S contract.
To help you continue to get anti-virus protection, IBM has provided an option for all existing BigFix Protection customers to migrate from BigFix Protection to the Trend Micro OfficeScan product at no additional charge. We highly recommend you to take advantage of this migration option to migrate your Protection depoyment to OfficeScan as soon as possible. Because migration may take some time, we suggest you to start the migration several months before your S&S contract expires. Please note after the migration you will continue to get support for the migrated OfficeScan product from Trend Micro.
Please refer to this blog for more details of the Protection EOS annoucement and Migration program: https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/blogs/a1a33778-88b7-452a-9133-c955812f8910/entry/BigFix_Protection_product_withdraw_from_the_market_and_end_of_support_and_availability_of_a_migration_option?lang=en
We recommend all existing BigFix Migration customers to start the migration now. Please contact your IBM account representative or send an email to Fergus Mulholland <MULHOFER@ie.ibm.com> today, and we will work with you to get the migration started.
Thank you for your attention.
