(PressReleasePoint) -MUMBAI, INDIA - January 23, 2014
 
eScan, one of the leading Anti-Virus and Content Security Solution providers, will continue to provide virus signature updates and continue anti-malware support for the Operating System, even after Microsoft withdraws support for Windows XP.
 
Windows XP is a highly accepted OS and holds a third of the market share. Microsoft had extended the life-cycle of Windows XP twice due to users' demand of not moving away from it. Recently, Microsoft announced that by April 2014, Windows XP will lose product support thus leaving it vulnerable. eScan, however, will continue to provide Virus signature updates to users on Windows XP, even after the OS reaches the end of its life cycle.
 
With its advanced and futuristic security solutions, eScan promises to protect Windows XP users from malware and potential hackers. Apart from XP, eScan also currently provides full anti-malware software for Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and popular Microsoft Server Operating Systems.
 
Mr. Govind Rammurthy, MD and CEO, eScan said, "Considering that over 30% of machines (worldwide) are still on XP, and over 60% in India (and possibly many other nations) still use XP, eScan will continue to support Windows XP (both SP2 and SP3), till the time that this number reduces to less than 5%. Business continuity in SMB & Enterprise segments dictate that we end up supporting XP, beyond the deadline given by Microsoft. eScan also still supports Windows 2000, considering that W2K still happens to be used within Medium sized enterprises (and some large ones, who have functional apps running perfectly fine on W2k machines). The above decision to support WXP  is for all the market segments, SOHO, SMB and Enterprise/Corporate."
