    Default Checkpoint Enterprise Software Support Timeline

    What is the likelihood that Checkpoint will support R77.30 beyond September 2019. I just need this thing to run until Apr 2020 when we are going to shutdown our existing DC and move into the cloud.

    It has already been extended once, doubt they will do it again.

    if the "sha 256" thing back in a day is any compass, it will be extended at least couple of more times ;-)

    What was the original end date of support for R77.30 and how many times has it been extended?

    My understanding is that R77.30 end date of support is May 2019 but has been extended to September 2019. Only 4 months of extension?

    Yes, 7730 extension has occurred only once as you describe. This was due to pressure on Checkpoint by "big customers". I dont work for CP so no inside info here, but I know thats the reason from other channels
    Anyway, based on sha256 debacle few years back (was pushed back like at least 4 times IIRC), I wouldn't be surprised if 7730 "end-date" gets pushed again.

    Thank you for the feedback. I am hoping that it will extend until September 2020 when we're moving out of our existing DC and into a much smaller DC. By then, all of our firewalls at the new location will be Palo Alto.
