Kaspersky Lab today announced the release of a groundbreaking new product – Kaspersky Anti-Virus for UEFI (KUEFI) – an anti-malware solution which can protect the user’s PC before the operating system even starts loading.

UEFI, or "Unified Extensible Firmware Interface", has been developed by Unified EFI Forum. It is a new model for the interface between personal-computer operating systems and platform firmware. Hailed as the ‘spiritual successor’ to BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), UEFI offers support for new technologies, improved development, and enhanced customer experience during the time after the computer is turned on but before the operating system loads. Across multiple interfaces, the Specification supports a more secure system, a faster boot time, improved performance, platform feature innovation, and a quicker, more cost-effective time-to-market product shipment.

It sounds very interesting, just wondering will they just add it to their products or offer a stand-alone that can be used with other AV's?
