You are welcome. As far as I know actually there are no plans for native 64-bit installers

Hi @jkin_ng, welcome to the new forum.

An essential quote from the thread linked:
It comes down to this that KIS/KAV are modular and contain both the GUI - 32 bit process and SYSTEM drivers. There is no point in making the GUI a 64 bit process. However, the drivers that do actual SYSTEM level protection had been 64 bit for a while now. The selection which drivers to use happens automatically when you install the software.
