I received an email stating the ProtectLink service will be shut down effective 7/31/2014. Will there be a software upgrade to continue using the SA500 devices or am I expected to tell my customers to throw away their $500+ investment? Some of these routers aren't even a year old...
I'm not familiar with the SA500, but isn't there an option to disable ProtectLink? There was already an EoS announcement in January 2013. Also do not replace it with the ISA, also EoS .. just look for another vendor when you need a cheap UTM solution.
I'm sure the router will function without the Protectlink, but that's not the point. We sold these devices to our customers as a solution that would provide url filtering and related security services. We chose a Cisco product with the idea that they would stand behind their product and not abandon it after such a short amount of time.
We've also sold ISA550 devices since they "replaced" the SA500 sevices and they will be disco too?
I received this email too. It is unacceptable to disable the web filtering capabilities to all ProteckLink products. Technicality Cisco changes the specifications of the devices they sold us and they downgrade them. Is this fraud? I really feel that they cheat me. Due to that I think not buying again any cisco product.
If they have problem with Trend Micro, they can stop cooperate with them. But they cannot let down all customers that invest on “Cisco” branded devices and disable all security features form their devices! At least they should release new firmware for all ProtectLink devices to allow Comprehensive Security Services if our hardware can support it. If not, that should give as the option to upgrade to new Cisco security products with a significant discount
