Worry-Free Business Security (On-Premises) and Worry-Free Business Security Services (WFBS-SVC) minimal Windows requirements for ACS (Azure Code Signing)
Product/Version includes:Worry-Free Business Security Advanced , Worry-Free Business Security Standard , Worry-Free Business Security Services , View More
Update Date: 2023/05/29
Article Number: 000291908
Category: Install, Update

Microsoft requires security vendors to sign binaries using ACS. WFBS (On-Premises) and WFBS-SVC will be changing to this new certificate accordingly. However, a minimal update of the Microsoft KB will be required to support this new certificate.

Impact

Customers who do not have the minimum OS build/patch of Microsoft Windows after February 18, 2023 may encounter the following errors:

  • Agent Program and Services may not work properly.
  • There will be a reporting issue between the Windows Security Center (WSC) and the Trend Micro Security Agent which could result to the agent co-existing with Windows Defender. This could possibly lead to slow login, application lockup, or machine unresponsiveness.

To prevent this situation, Trend Micro will add a mechanism to the products to check whether ACS is already supported on the machine. If minimum OS build/patch of Microsoft Windows is not applied, it will prevent security agent fresh installation and agent hot fix after February 18, 2023.

 
Agent Program Upgrade blocking on non-ACS machines is a best effort implementation to prevent accidental deployment of new build on non-ACS compliant system. The ACS complaint detection logic however may not work correctly on some environment. Customers are strongly advised to apply appropriate MS KB to enable ACS support before deploying WFBS Patch 2472 or later.

Check Mechanism Release Schedule

  • Worry-Free Business Security Services (WFBS-SVC): January 9, 2022 Hot fix Maintenance
  • Worry-Free Business Security (On-Premises): To be included in all patches released after Patch 2459.

Customers who will be performing an update or install newer builds released after February 18, 2023 must have applied a minimum Microsoft Windows patch depending on the version of Windows you have deployed mentioned on the article, IMPORTANT BULLETIN: Trend Micro Server and Endpoint Protection Agent Minimum Windows Version Requirements for Updated Binaries After Mid-February 2023.

 
For machines that do not allow “trusted root CA auto update” or are in air-gapped or otherwise locked down environments, please make sure to apply Microsoft Identity Verification Root Certificate Authority 2020. A tool can be utilized for this by following the steps mentioned in this KB article. You may use the command EasyFixSysCerts.exe A1 .

Customers who have questions are encouraged to contact Trend Micro Technical Support for further assistance.

Windows 10 Home und Pro – Version 22H2 – Supportende 14. Oktober 2025

Windows 10 support lifecycle

As documented on the Windows 10 Enterprise and Education and Windows 10 Home and Pro lifecycle pages, Windows 10 will reach end of support on October 14, 2025. The current version, 22H2, will be the final version of Windows 10, and all editions will remain in support with monthly security update releases through that date. Existing LTSC releases will continue to receive updates beyond that date based on their specific lifecycles.

Recommendation

  • We highly encourage you to transition to Windows 11 now as there won’t be any additional Windows 10 feature updates.
  • If you and/or your organization must remain on Windows 10 for now, please update to Windows 10, version 22H2 to continue receiving monthly security update releases through October 14, 2025. See how you can quickly do this via a servicing enablement package in How to get the Windows 10 2022 Update.

The final end of support date for Windows 10 does not change with this announcement; these dates can be found on the Windows 10 Lifecycle page.

Microsoft Pricing update 1 April 2023

Pricing update 1 April 2023

Microsoft is dedicated to harmonizing its prices for cloud services and adjusting for local currency fluctuation within the European region. For this reason, starting from April 1, 2023, Microsoft is making changes to their pricelists for the following currencies:

  • Euro (EUR)
  • Swedish Krona (SEK)
  • Norwegian Krone (NOK)
  • Danish Krone (DKK)
  • British pound (GBP)

 

The table below illustrates the price increase (in percentage) for the currencies, to better align to global levels:

Currency

Price increase (in %)
British Pound 9
Danish Krone 11
Euros 11
Norwegian Krone 11
Swedish krona 15

Azure customers

For Azure customers who buy the services through NCE with the Microsoft Customer Agreement (MCA), Azure is priced in United States Dollars (USD) worldwide.

USD global pricing provides customers with transparent and competitive rates that can easily be compared to competitor pricing. However, a customer buys – from a partner in the Cloud Solution Provider program, from a Microsoft seller, or from Azure.com. Customers who purchase Azure through the MCA will not see their prices impacted by these local currency adjustments. Local currency billing rates for Azure through the MCA are calculated monthly and published on Azure.com.

Business customers

For business customers, these pricing changes will not affect existing orders under commercial licensing agreements (for services that are subject to price protection – i.e., price protected services aren’t affected until renewal). However, prices for new service additions under these licensing agreements and purchases and new contracts will be subject to the pricelist changes when the customer places an order. Customers buying cloud services in the currencies mentioned above, will continue to find equivalent Microsoft cloud offers highly competitive.
