Best 64-bit Windows Vista Anti-Virus
« on: 02. August 2007., 20:30:07 »
Windows Vista comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors. Unlike Windows Server 2008, formerly codenamed Longhorn, which is the last server operating system from the Redmond company, the 32-bit client platform will live long after Windows Vista. At this point in time, the Redmond company plans to deliver Windows Seven, Vista's successor in both x86 and x64 versions. But focusing on the x64 editions of Windows Vista, security is without a doubt a key aspect. Microsoft did applaud Vista as the securest Windows operating system available, and in this context, x64 Vista is the apex. The paroxysm is of course delivered by additional 
security mitigations implemented  into x64 Vista such as PatchGurard or the Kernel Patch protection
technology and mandatory data signing.

Still, it is important to be well aware of the fact that neither the 32-bit nor the 64-bit editions of Vista are silver bullets, or panaceas for the security problem. Users should continue to deploy antivirus software in tandem with Vista, just as they did with older versions of Windows. On January 30 2007, when Vista hit the shelves, there was little choice in terms of security measures, even for the x86 versions of the operating, not to mention the x64 editions. But in the six months that have passed since then, the security market matured sufficiently around Vista in order to produce a healthy offering of solutions to safeguard the operating system. The security products enumerated bellow are not part of a ranking. They are in alphabetical order, and they all have a common aspect. All the products have been tested on a 64-bit edition of Windows Vista Business and are recommended for the operating system by the VB100 award.

AVG Antivirus Professional 7.5.476a1043 - "AVG Professional Single Edition is perfectly designed to give you the maximum antivirus protection for your single home PC or workstation. AVG Professional is simple to install and operate. No IT expertise is required and it can run in the background, providing uninterrupted protection.

McAfee VirusScan 2007 11 - "With the wide variety of viruses, hackers and blended threats lurking on the Internet today, you need more than a simple anti-virus program to keep your PC and files secure. McAfee VirusScan Plus AntiVirus, Firewall & AntiSpyware provides the essential protection you need to surf the Web and download files safely."

"By protecting against all the in-the-wild viruses without false positives, Sophos has proved itself worthy of another VB100 award."
