Lumension AntiVirus Transition

If your department is running Lumension, please note this announcement.

L.E.M.S.S. v8.2 was released in early Mar-2015, and includes a change to the integrated AV engine. With this change, Lumension® AntiVirus provides improved malware detection, reduced bandwidth utilization, and improved endpoint performance. While this change has minimal to no impact on end users, it requires you to update both the L.E.M.S.S. server and L.E.M.S.S. endpoint agents to the latest version to continue receiving AV protection.

What Needs to be Done?

You have until July 31, 2015 to upgrade to L.E.M.S.S. v8.2. Legacy AV definition support will end on that date, after which legacy AV endpoints (L.E.M.S.S. v8.1 and earlier) will no longer receive definition updates.

The L.E.M.S.S. v8.2 server will support both new and legacy AV endpoints to support a phased migration to the new solution during the transition window.
