Microsoft AV will be out soon!

Microsoft-Security-EssentialsMicrosoft has released an announcement that the free anti-virus package Security Essentials is now reached the final phase.

Microsoft Security Essentials will have the basic requirements for competition among some major security software companies like Symantec and McAfee with a low price AV solution. The new product is designed to protect computers with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating system from viruses, Trojans, spyware, rootkits, etc.

Security Essentials Beta Testing version has been issued last summer: the package was downloaded by 75 thousand users from all over the globe. Reviewer’s opinion generally was positive. In particular, there has been user-friendly interface and a fairly wide range of settings.

As described in the announcement Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) final version will be presented in the coming few weeks. It sounds like the package will be released on the Windows 7 presentation , which will be held on October 22.

Minimum requirements to run the Security Essentials are: 500 MHz CPU and 256 MB RAM with Windows XP and processor at 1 GHz and 1 GB of RAM for Windows Vista or Windows 7.

This appears very attractive especially that Microsoft is trying to integrate all the protective measures in the whole infrastructure but what about non windows platform.
