Avira Product Lifecycle

Plan your investments and your security

The Avira products are being developed and maintained with a long-term view. This approach provides our business customers security for their investment and planning that all businesses require. The Avira philosophy is based upon the following:

  1. Avira gives notice at least 3 years in advance of the discontinuation of an Avira product or operating system.
  2. Avira supports all operating systems 12 months longer, as a rule, than the producer of the operating system.
  3. For Microsoft´s operating systems Avira adds 12 months to Microsoft's 'Mainstream Support End Date' for its end of support date.

You can find out which operating system is compatible with the product you require in the relevant product description under "System Requirements".
