customers can rest assured: when the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system is
formally launched to the public, Kaspersky Lab’s security software will be
ready and compatible with consumer PCs.
Microsoft developers have worked closely with Kaspersky Lab software
engineers to ensure upcoming versions of Kaspersky Lab’s popular security
software – Kaspersky Anti-Virus and Kaspersky Internet Security – will be ready
to provide uninterrupted protection.
Lab has also opened a limited beta testing program for its flagship Kaspersky Internet Security product.
The Kaspersky Internet Security Technical Preview is designed to work
specifically with the Windows 8 beta program, known as the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. This
beta version of Kaspersky Lab’s software is available for all users of the
Windows 8 Consumer Preview from now until June 2012.
Internet Security Technical Preview fully supports the new
technologies and enhancements in the Windows 8 beta, including features
designed to protect the new operating system’s “Metro style” applications.
Another notable new feature is support for Microsoft’s new Early Launch
Anti-Malware (ELAM) technology, which efficiently protects users’ PCs from
complex malware such as rootkits and bootkits. Other enhancements presented by
Kaspersky Lab’s development team make the product fully compatible with Windows
8, with increased performance and a redefined user interface.
Internet Security Technical Preview is available for download from
the dedicated page - www.kaspersky.com/windows8. Beta
testers are also encouraged to share their feedback on Kaspersky
Although the beta version will be provided without conventional technical
support, Kaspersky Lab’s specialists will evaluate all comments and suggestions
on the forum in order to provide the best experience for all users when Windows
8 is commercially released.
