Microsoft® recently announced that as of April 8, 2014 they will stop supporting the Windows® XP operating system. This means that next week Microsoft will no longer provide security updates, feature enhancements or technical support for Windows XP users. Without upgrades or support, XP users face an ever-increasing risk of intrusion, infection and security breaches.
At ESET®, we recognize that your customers may have ongoing business requirements that warrant the continued use of legacy systems such as XP. To support a managed and secure transition to a more current operating system, ESET confirms that we will continue to support Windows XP in our current business (and home) products through April 30, 2017.
