VirusScan 8.8

Hi there,

Will VirusScan 8.8 support windows 7 SP1, office 2010 x64? Will it have native x64 support? Is there any KB regarding the features expected in this release? when does it get RTW? Is native x64 version in VirusScan's future roadmap? The same goes for ePO native x64 support as well.

Thank you

1ndian

Hi

I do not have all the info you are after but VSE 8.8 will support office 2010. See KnowledgeBase article KB69027 - VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i and Microsoft Office 2010 products.

VSE 8.8 will support office 2010. It's release is expected Q4 this year.

VSE supports x64 already and has done for many years (natively since VSE 8.5i, prior to that only the kernel drivers were 64-bit).

Some components of the product are not 64-bit today because they do not need to be -

Email scan, for example, is not 64-bit becuase Outlook is not 64-bit. Likewise aspects of the McAfee Agent are not 64-bit because they do not need to be, but those components that interact with VSE are indeed 64-bit.

There should be no concern or doubt that VSE is a native x64 product. For ePO, you'll want to raise that question on the ePO forum.

Have a search through the KB for articles on 8.8 and see what info you can find.
