CIS Benchmarks™ End of Life (EOL) for Unsupported Technologies

Product Name

CIS Benchmarks™

Product Version



Jul 17, 2020


In addition to being costly and troublesome, the continued use of unsupported technologies can expose your organization to security risks. Patching known vulnerabilities is an important part of any cyber hygiene program, as explained in CIS Controls Implementation Group 1. This becomes challenging or impossible when a vendor stops supporting a technology. Accordingly, CIS® will discontinue CIS Benchmarks™ for technologies that are no longer supported by the vendor.
