New Kaspersky offers Windows 7 support
Kaspersky Lab has announced the Release Candidate for Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Workstations Maintenance Pack 4 with Windows 7 support.
The company says it is the next step in supporting the new desktop operating system from Microsoft. Kaspersky Lab was among the first antivirus companies to support Windows 7 in January 2009 with the release of Kaspersky Anti-Virus Technology Preview for Windows 7.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Workstations provides centralised protection of all workstations on a corporate network and protects from all types of contemporary malware, crimeware and other cyber threats including viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware, phishing and hacker attacks.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Workstations MP4 replaces Kaspersky Anti-Virus Technology Preview for Windows 7 and has been enhanced with a management system – Kaspersky Administration Kit 8.0 – that also supports Windows 7.
Kaspersky Administration Kit 8.0 is the next version of the management console and it contains everything required to protect a network immediately after installation, with new deployment scenarios (including 1-click deployment and native GPO-based deployment support) and optimised default settings.
Kaspersky Administration Kit 8.0 also has Release Candidate status and is scheduled for release later this year
Kaspersky Lab invites interested parties to participate in public testing of these updated applications
