Petaling Jaya (April 11) – Kaspersky Lab would like to assure its customers that although Microsoft will end support for the Windows XP SP3 operating system in April 2014, our company’s security solutions will continue to protect these systems beyond the Microsoft cut-off date, in accordance with Kaspersky Lab’s scheduled product life-cycles.

The list of products that will maintain compatibility with Windows XP include Kaspersky Lab’s corporate security solution – Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Windows – as well as current and future versions of its consumer protection solutions, such as Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 and Kaspersky Internet Security 2013.

Kaspersky KIS2014According to Kaspersky Lab’s scheduled product lifecycles, the following solutions will maintain Windows XP support until at least these indicated dates:

  • Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Windows – supported until Q2 2016
  • Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 and Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 – supported until Q2 2016
  • Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 and Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 – supported until 2017
  • Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 and Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 – supported until 2018

During this period of extended support, Kaspersky Lab products installed on Windows XP machines will continue to receive the latest malware signature updates. Please be advised that support will be extended only for Windows XP with Service Pack 3 installed.

Kaspersky Lab invests substantial resources to ensure that its products work properly on different types and versions of operating systems. Although the Windows XP operating system was released more than 10 years ago and three newer Windows operating systems have subsequently been released, Kaspersky Lab realizes that many businesses and individual PC users still prefer this system. This extension of our support should provide ample time for these customers to migrate to a modern operating system.
