We currently don't have concrete plans to end Emsisoft Enterprise Console.
If we ever come to that point, we would make an announcement at least one year in advance to provide planning safety for our customers.
1) Local update caching will become available later.
2) We have no plans to offer a profiles migration path, for now.
Re-connecting existing devices from EEC to ECC will become an easy procedure and can be automated.
We are working hard to add new features to Emsisoft Cloud Console.
Feel free to start testing it and see how stable it is.
You can connect existing Emsisoft installs manually as of version 2019.3.
