Release announcement: ESET PROTECT Cloud 3.0

Authors list

Update 28-10-2021 : We would like to confirm the successful release of ESET PROTECT Cloud 3.0 into the production environment.
All eligible cloud instances are on the latest version.

Let me inform you, we are planning to deploy a new version of ESET PROTECT Cloud 3.0 into production during 21.10.2021 - 5.11.2021.

Release notes:

  • The release process, as usual consists of several individual (internal) tasks/activities which will be executed during  21.10.2021 (starting 9:00 CET) - 5.11.2021
  • 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 21.10.2021 - 5.11.2021 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 be not affected.
