Notes & Warnings

For customers with valid product subscriptions running non-certified configurations, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to investigate potential issues with software running together with these non-certified configurations. As part of the investigation, we may require the issue to be reproduced by the customer independently to isolate the issue from the non-certified configuration.

Where issues are confirmed to be unrelated to the non-certified configuration, we will support our software in a manner that is consistent with support provided on certified configurations. Where issues are known or proven to be directly related to the non-certified configuration, we will require the customer to migrate to a certified configuration, as listed in the certified product matrix.

For versions 7.0.x to 7.8.x, review the Web Security and Web Filter Certified Product Matrix.
