BIOS/Firmware/Drivers Updates for End-of-Life Servers?

Similar to another question posted here with the same title, I have 4 PowerEdge R720s that are now out of support.  I am required by federal regulation to apply vulnerability and security patches when they become available.  Is there an official end of support for vulnerability and security patches?  An official date would also help to sell an upgrade to management.  Thank you.

RE: BIOS/Firmware/Drivers Updates for End-of-Life Servers?

No "official" date ... Dell has never announced official dates of support of any kind - sales or support. The dates are best set internally according to policies, practices, and needs of the organization. Patches and updates are always available free of charge and with or without a support contract.
