- CrashPlan for Small Business
In order to maintain the best service, Code42 supports specific versions of CrashPlan for Small Business (previously CrashPlan PRO) software. As described in the Product Lifecycle Policy, this supported version policy is more restrictive than the general policy of supporting the two most current major software versions. This article names the specific versions of the Code42 app that are required for CrashPlan for Small Business, as well as the supported and unsupported operating systems for the currently-supported versions of the Code42 app.
Code42 cloud endpoint version policy
- Code42 requires that customers use the latest supported version of the Code42 app. Previous versions must be upgraded by the dates established in this policy. Identify your version of the Code42 app to ensure you are using an up-to-date version.
- When a new version of the Code42 app is available, Code42 automatically upgrades all devices that meet the system requirements for the new version.
- When a new version of the Code42 app no longer supports use on an operating system, Code42 announces an end-of-support date for the Code42 app on that operating system. Code42 strives to announce the end-of-support date 45 days in advance.
