Comguard launches FixMeStick with Windows 8 Support
 

Comguard, a Dubai based leading value added distributor for IT security products today announced the launch of first virus removal device to support Windows 8 PCs from FixMeStick in Middle East.

The latest version of FixMeStick supports Windows 8 OS that comes with unique technology called Secure Boot. Secure Boot uses a public-key infrastructure to verify the integrity of the operating system and prevent unauthorized programs booting on the device.

Mohammad Mobasseri, Sr. Vice President, Comguard, “Windows 8 PCs contain a new technology called Secure Boot that only boots devices that have been verified by Microsoft. FixMeStick is the industry's first virus removal device that can secure all the Windows 8 PCs users in Middle East”.

Since 2001 each new release of Windows includes new security capabilities, but computer virus infections remain a mainstream and growing problem. The practice of cleaning an infected device from an independent, external, known clean device is recommended by government cyber security departments and computer security leaders around the world.

Corey Velan, co-founder at FixMeStick, explains, 'One consequence of Secure Boot is independent, external devices, rescue disks, Live CDs, and Live USBs, will no longer work on PCs that ship with Windows 8 unless they're upgraded to include the necessary signed components or unless the PC's system settings are modified by the user. FixMeStick is the first device to achieve compatibility with Windows 8 PCs right out of the box.”
