End of life for Kaspersky Antivirus 2.0 for WinGate

Dec 22 10 1:15 pm

Hello all.

Kaspersky Labs, the provider of the scanning engine used in the Kaspersky AntiVirus for WinGate product line has informed us that support for signature updates for old versions of their scanning engine will cease.

The current date for this is 31 January 2011.

From that date, Kaspersky AntiVirus 2.0 for WinGate will no longer be able to obtain signature updates. It will continue to scan using the existing database, but new signatures providing protection from new viruses will no longer be available.

We have made available a new version of Kaspersky AntiVirus for WinGate to address this issue. Customers running version 2.x or earlier should update at their earliest opportunity.

As an added benefit, the new scanning engine is quicker, and less resource-hungry than the previous one. There are also a couple of new features.
