On December 31st, 2015, a number of Bitdefender products reached End of Life (EOL) status. Here is a list of products that are no longer maintained by the Linux team:

  • BitDefender Security for Mail Servers (FreeBSD and Solaris)
  • BitDefender Security for Samba (Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris)

We will continue supporting the Linux version of BitDefender Security for Mail Servers for the foreseeable future (note that the Management Server integration feature will be removed from future versions).
