Appliance Software Version Support

Netskope Appliance software releases are available every 4-months and will have Netskope support up to two previous versions. Direct software upgrades are supported as long as the “from” and “to” software releases are within two versions apart.

Release number – Netskope appliance releases are designated by the form X.Y.Z where X, Y, and Z are integers. The individual digits represent release major, minor, and build number respectively. It gives 12 months for customers to move to a supported release. For example, appliance release 77 and older releases are deprecated when appliance release 99 goes live. Releases that are outside the Netskope support period:

  • Are not guaranteed to work with the latest cloud releases.
  • Are no longer tested by Netskope.
  • Do not receive hotfixes.
  • Do not receive new feature updates.

At our discretion, we may provide support for releases outside our support period. If a customer encounters an error in a version of software that is other than the latest release, Netskope may require the customer to upgrade to a specified later version to obtain a correction of the error.
