How long are CentOS releases supported?

How long are CentOS releases typically supported for things like security fixes? I guess since this is Enterprise level stuff, theres no software upgrades as such, only backports of security fixes (where possible). How long are these made available for releases?

we will provide updates as long as they are provided from upstream ... which should be to 7 years from the release date.

Excellent, thanks. I was hoping this would be the case, as I saw no reason why (after basing the whole OS around RHEL) you couldn't use upstream updates but just thought I'd better check.
