Pre-release announcement: ESET Endpoint Antivirus/Security 9.0 (global Auto-updates channel)

Authors list

Let us inform you that we can confirm the internal technical readiness of ESET Endpoint Antivirus and ESET Endpoint Security 9.0.2046.0, 9.0.2046.1 and that the builds have qualified for global Auto-updates/micro Program Component Update (uPCU) rollout after a careful consideration of available customer feedback.

This means that if all conditions are met, all managed and unmanaged deployments of ESET Endpoints with regular online connectivity will start to upgrade to a newer version using the Auto-updates/uPCU technology, which will begin on May 5th, 2022 as pre-release phase, then switch to full release on May 10th, 2022 with controlled progress, taking up to 7-14 days until all requests are served without any throttling.

Those who want to bypass the safety throttling in place after May 10th, can choose to manually press the "Check for updates"-button in endpoint's main user interface.

As usual with Auto-updates/uPCU, you will need to have ESET PROTECT Cloud or ESET PROTECT 8.0 (or newer) installed, together with ESET Endpoint Antivirus or ESET Endpoint Security, Auto-updates (under Product Updates in advanced setup) enabled or uPCU configured to "Auto-update" or "Ask before update". This of course applies also for standalone (unmanaged) installations of ESET Endpoints, if the configuration was modified locally.

We would like to encourage our customers to use the time-frame between May 5th and May 10th for internal testing and hands-on experience, and to consult potentially open questions resulting from this preparation phase with our  support.

The following builds are eligible for automatic updates via uPCU and thus, will be automatically updated from 10th of May.

Compatible version(s): 8.0.2028.0, 8.0.2028.3, 8.0.2039.0, 8.0.2039.3, 8.0.2044.0, 8.0.2044.3, 8.1.2031.0, 8.1.2031.3, 8.1.2037.2, 8.1.2037.9, 8.1.2045.0, 9.0.2032.0, 9.0.2032.2, 9.0.2032.6
