Lumension® for Windows XP End-of-Support

Lumension® provides protection from malware, zero-day and targeted attacks against your
WinXP systems.

Microsoft® has stopped providing security patches for Windows XP – and for Office 2003 too. If your organization has not migrated off WinXP – for whatever reason – your systems are increasingly vulnerable to malware, zero-day and targeted attacks. Here are some steps you need to take to reduce those WinXP system risks.

Protect against unintended or malicious system-wide changes by enforcing standard user accounts and other security configuration settings.

Don't compound the problem by leaving vulnerabilities in 3rd party applications unpatched.

Guard against malware propagated by USB sticks and installation of rogue devices with device and port control.

Defend against the inevitable zero-days due to unpatched WinXP vulnerabilities with application whitelisting.

Surviving Windows XP End-of-Support

Microsoft Windows XP reached end-of-support in April 2014. The typical OS migration takes 18 months, and involves considerable planning, effort and cost. Organizations can reduce the cost and stress of a hurried migration by using Lumension security solutions to prevent malware, zero-day and targeted attacks, without impacting productivity.

Perhaps the best way to reduce the cost and stress associated with a hurried migration is to use application whitelisting to control what executables can run on your WinXP systems. Whether you use it to provide the necessary breathing room to do a proper migration, as a permanent solution to the end of support for WinXP and associated applications, or as a stepping stone to a better anti-malware solution across your entire organization, Lumension® Application Control will prevent malware, zero-day and targeted attacks without impacting productivity by stopping the execution of any unwanted, untrusted or malicious applications – without relying on the latest antivirus definitions and vulnerability patches. And the added bonus is improved performance over traditional AV!
