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!
