Sydney, Australia – November 15th, 2012 – Auslogics Software Pty. Ltd., a leading publisher of popular PC optimization and maintenance utilities, has released an announcement that three of its main products - Auslogics BoostSpeed, Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro and Auslogics File Recovery – have received the official Windows 8 Compatible certification from Microsoft.
Microsoft’s Windows App Certification Program is designed to help ensure that third-party applications carrying the Windows brand are both easy to install and reliable on PCs running Windows. The requirements that applications have to meet in order to qualify to display the Windows 8 Compatible logo include:
- Being compatible and resilient
- Adhering to Windows Security Best Practices
- Supporting Windows security features
- Supporting clean, reversible installation
- Other strict technical specifications
The goal of this program is to provide the value that users expect from their Windows-based systems, which includes requirements of stability, compatibility, reliability, performance, and quality.
The three Auslogics products that received Windows 8 compatibility certification had gone through extensive in-house testing prior to being tested by Microsoft. The tests confirmed their solid architecture and reliability, their full adherence to strict security requirements and ability to provide a smooth user experience on Windows 8 platforms.
“We are very excited about receiving this certification from Microsoft,” says Anna Lind, Auslogics PR representative. “This achievement is significant for us as a company, as it means our developers have done a fantastic job, which has been acknowledged; and it is also significant for our customers, as they receive the ultimate confirmation that Auslogics products can be trusted for use on platforms running the newest Windows version. Not much changed in Windows 8 in terms of maintenance and optimization needs, and we are happy to provide the feature-rich tools Windows users look for to replace and supplement the minimalistic built-in utilities.”
Auslogics products support MS Windows versions from XP to Windows 8. The company offers free trial downloads of this software from their website at www.auslogics.com.
