Why is the Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) functionality not working on Windows 7?

While Endpoint Protector is committed to maintain cross-platform functionality and also backwards compatibility, sometimes, due to outside factors we cannot control (i.e.: technology limitations), this is not possible.

Unfortunately, in the case of Windows 7 and Deep Packet Inspection, the technology limitations do not permit such a functionality. This is because the DPI feature requires some technology components that are not available in Windows 7.

Moreover, as Windows 7 is discontinued, we strongly recommend updating to a newer OS (e.g.: Windows 10) that does not leave the users exposed to general security vulnerabilities, arising from a discontinued product.
