Avira products are developed and maintained with a long-term view. This approach provides our business customers with the security they need to make investments and for planning. To learn more about the life cycle of OEM products, please click here.

The Avira philosophy is based upon the following:

Avira gives a notice period of at least 1 year before discontinuing an Avira product or operating system. Multi-year license runtimes are honored, so products will remain functional in their current states until the license expires. In this context, “functional” is defined as the updating of detection databases only and does not include software changes or extensions.
