OfficeScan 11.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and OfficeScan 10.6 Service Pack 3 (SP3) can support Windows 10 by applying the critical patch. Below are the features that you can get from the Windows 10 critical patch:
OfficeScan 11.0 SP1 Critical Patch Enhancements
- Platform and Browser Support
OfficeScan agent supports Windows 10 (Home, Pro, Education, and Enterprise editions). OfficeScan also supports Microsoft Edge.
- Early Launch Anti-Malware Protection
OfficeScan supports the Early Launch Anti-Malware (ELAM) feature as part of the Secure Boot standard to provide boot time protection on endpoints. Administrators can enable this feature to start OfficeScan agents before the other third-party software drivers when endpoints start up. This feature enables OfficeScan agents to detect malware during the boot process.
- Enhanced Suspicious Object Subscription Process
When administrators register OfficeScan to a Control Manager server that is connected to Deep Discovery, OfficeScan automatically subscribes to Control Manager to synchronize suspicious objects and retrieve actions against these objects.
