Release date 30. September, 2021
IKARUS Security Software GmbH announces Technical End of Life and Support for selected older mobile platforms and products through the IKARUS mobile.management solution.
IKARUS Security Software GmbH treats the product End of Life process as a part of the life cycle that drives product innovation and secures customers business. All technology products, especially security and data protection services, inescapable reach the end of their useful life. It requires a business decision to discontinue availability and maintenance of selected products in order to protect customers from usage of outdated technologies.
Considering this, IKARUS Security Software GmbH announces End of Life for following types of mobile platforms and products.
- End of Life: the platform/product will be removed from IKARUS mobile.management and will not work any longer
- Deprecated: the platform/product will no longer be tested and supported by IKARUS but might continue to work. Use at your own risk.
|Android versions older than 6||01.04.2022||End of Life
Android versions older than 6 are not supported anymore. Already enrolled devices may continue to work but are not supported anymore and will not be tested for new releases.
|Android “Device Admin”||01.04.2022||Deprecated
The Android “Device Admin” mode isn’t supported anymore since Android 10. Device Owner / Work Profile modes have replaced it for quite some time.
Therefore, the following changes will be made to the product:
|Android clients older than 6.06||01.04.2022||End of Life
