- Windows XP is scheduled for “End of Life” in April 2014 yet XP is still the 2nd most widely used PC operating system in the world—estimates suggest that nearly 40% of PCs are still running XP.
- Many organizations cannot move from XP by April 2014 due to application compatibility issues, cost, staffing resources and other issues.
- The most significant issue facing organizations with XP PCs is operating securely when there are no more security patches from Microsoft.
- There is now an alternative that allows organizations to move from XP on their own timeline, while staying secure using XP on into the future: ExtendedXP from Arkoon.
This webinar will begin with Adam Robb, an industry leading IT security consultant with IPSS, Inc., discussing the security issues that organizations are facing when they are using XP after the Windows support ends including the anticipated threats of cyber criminals and the challenges of retaining regulatory compliance. Adam will also analyze the support and compliance options that organizations that are going to be using XP through 2014 and beyond may have available.
Then the presentation will shift to a description and analysis of one security support option for Windows XP users – ExtendedXP (EXP). Bob Foley and Fayce Daira will provide an overview and technical description of EXP that combines the active real-time protection of a customized StormShield EXP Agent running at the Endpoint with the EXP Monitoring Service for monitoring and reporting on vulnerabilities to provide enhanced protection of XP and related applications – on into the future.
Bob and Fayce will present how subscribers to the EXP service will benefit both from proactive protection against unpatched vulnerability exploitation on the protected computer and from a service that will warn them of any newly identified vulnerabilities, keep them informed on the effectiveness of their infrastructure proactive protection system and, if appropriate, provide a new updated template for PC protection and make recommendations about any other necessary measures that need to be taken.
Last, the implications for XP using organizations maintaining regulatory certification by using EXP as a compensating control will be discussed and examined.
