Microsoft has given out information that MBAM is not been removed but instead put into sustained engieering. Meaning it will continue to work and continue to recive bug fixes but no new features will be added. This also means that support for future Windows 10 release as well as new SQL release should be added.
This should hold true until Microsoft has a feature by feature compareable service elsewhere (Azure most likley).
Microsoft Bitlocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) has now recieved its finaly date. This means that if you have already implemented MBAM you have a couple of years to migrate away from it, but if you haven’t implemented it and was about to do so. Please refrain from it.
Mainstream support will end July 7th 2019, meaning up until that date new “features” will be brought out to support newer SQL versions and the like.
Extended support will end on July 7th 2024, meaning after this date there will be no security patches and no support at all available.
Hopefully Microsoft gives a solution to rotating keys and self-service through Active Directory or Azure Active directory soon to fill the gap between MBAM and a standarnd Bitlocker implementation.
