DeviceLock, Inc., a worldwide leader in endpoint data loss prevention (DLP) software, today announced that the upcoming 7.2 release of their DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite has been verified as logo-certified for Windows 8. Upon v7.2’s release, DeviceLock DLP can be installed on all Windows 8 desktops and laptops for immediate protection from insider-originated data breaches.
Per Microsoft’s website for developers, “…the Windows 8 Desktop Application Certification … is made up of program and technical requirements to help ensure that third-party applications carrying the Windows brand are both easy to install and reliable on PCs running Windows. Customers value stability, compatibility, reliability, performance, and quality in the systems they purchase. Microsoft focuses its investments to meet these requirements for software applications designed to run on the Windows platform for PCs. These efforts include compatibility tests for consistency of experience, improved performance, and enhanced security on PCs running Windows software. Microsoft compatibility tests have been designed in collaboration with industry partners and are continuously improved in response to industry developments and consumer demand.”
