I have FPE licenses that will expire Feb 2014. There is no way to get new (or renew) the licenses after Feb 2014 because MS has announced that new licenses cannot be purchased after Dec 2012. However,the product will continue to be supported
until Dec 2015.
So, when the licenses i have expire oon Feb 2014, what happens? will FPE continue to update and work - will i remain protected (until 2015)?
that's a good question what will happen after Dec. 2012 when the license expires.
After the license has expired FPE will stop scanning emails for malware and spam. In short terms FPE will stop working in Feb. 2014 in your case. You should conatct Microsoft to get more information about that.
