Pre-release announcement: ESET PROTECT Cloud 3.4

Authors list

Let me inform you, that we have declared Internal Technical Readiness for a new version of ESET PROTECT Cloud and are planning to deploy it into the production during 7.7.2022 - 21.7.2022.


Release notes:

  • The release process, as usual consists of several individual (internal) tasks/activities which will be executed from 7.7.2022 (starting 9:00 CET) - to 21.7.2022
  • Mind the fact, that due to thousands of ESET PROTECT Cloud instances, the upgrade will happen in phases (gradual roll-out to individual instances) from 7.7.2022 - 21.7.2022 to secure smooth operation of the whole cloud service. 
  • Individual customers will be impacted in a minimal way. From their point of view, updates will require minimal downtime. Individual customer's instance would be inaccessible up to 15 minutes. Upgrades will happen out of business hours.
  • New customers will not be affected, as a newly generated instance would be on the latest version from the very first moment.
  • The security of the network will not be affected.
