Internet Security 2010 certified for Intel CPUs

Kaspersky Lab has announced that Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 has passed compatibility testing with Intel’s advanced processor technologies.

The logos awarded by Intel certify that Kaspersky Lab’s flagship product is fully compatible with the following processors: Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel  Core 2 Duo Extreme, Intel  Core 2 Quad,  Intel  Core  i7, Intel  Core  i7 Extreme, and the Intel  Centrino  Duo.

The logos verify that Kaspersky Lab products conform to these processors’ parallel computing capabilities using multi-core architectures and Intel Hyper-Threading technology.

“Intel is the leading manufacturer of computer microprocessors. The fact that our new product has been certified compatible with Intel processors is a significant accomplishment for us,” says Nikolay Grebennikov, Chief Technology Officer at Kaspersky Lab. “Multi-core technology is key to increasing the performance of today’s computers. However, extra performance can only be gained if the software is optimised accordingly. We are actively pursuing this line of research, and for us compatibility with multi-processor technology is fundamental to our sustainable development in the future.”
