Hello everyone,


Well, Windows 10 has been released by Microsoft Corporation. I know many people have already upgraded to it from Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1. I’ve already taken the plunge on several of my machines and plan to update the rest very shortly. I’ve been running different preview builds of it for some time as part of the Windows Insider program. Many of Intel Security’s customers have been asking for updates on when our Endpoint products will have support for the RTM (final released code) build of Windows 10. I’ve done a lot of digging around and have put together a list that covers the support for Windows 10 by Intel Security products. I plan to keep the blog post updated with more information as it becomes available from our product engineering teams, so make sure you save it in your bookmarks/favorites.


A few notes on this list:


  • This is primarily concentrated on Business/Enterprise versions of products from Intel Security, so you won’t see products for home users here.
  • When possible, I’ve provided a link to an article on the Knowledge Center…the information in that article may be more up-to-date as it is updated directly by our product teams.
  • For customers with Gold and Platinum support, please contact your Support Representative for updates and requests for access to pre-release products for testing purposes.
