Kaspersky Endpoint Security uses the most modern technologies from Kaspersky Lab to protect Windows workstations and servers on business networks.
Business changes are placing tremendous demands on IT. New technologies are being adopted by IT as a response to these pressures - but these trends pose critical and dangerous malware risks to the organization.
Kaspersky enables customers to embrace new technologies and feel confident that they’re protected against the threats of tomorrow’s IT trends.
As a cornerstone of Kaspersky’s solutions, Kaspersky Endpoint Security provides centralized protection of Windows workstations and Windows servers from malware, potentially dangerous programs and network attacks.
Here are some key features of "Kaspersky Endpoint Security (Formerly Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Workstations)":
Security for file systems:
· All files are scanned (for malicious content) when created, launched or modified. Any individual files, directories and disks (local and network) can also be scanned
Kaspersky Security Network:
· Tens of millions of members in our global user community volunteer (“opt-in”) to provide data about suspicious activities and attempted malware infections to the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network. The network immediately provides a response to suspected threats, much faster than traditional methods of protection. Using this experiential data, cloud-assisted protection reduces “false positives” which translates into an increase in business productivity
· Kaspersky applications scan HTTP traffic in real time using a variety of methods that include heuristic analysis of web pages. Blocking access to infected websites whose addresses are blacklisted ensures Internet users can work in a secure environment. Blacklisted URLs are updated real-time by the Kaspersky Security Network or can be customized by the administrator
Protection from hacker attacks:
· An improved firewall, together with IPS, safeguard workstations and servers on any type of network. Predefined rules for more than 250 of the most commonly used applications reduce time spent on configuring the firewall
Secure electronic communication:
· Mail traffic is scanned at the level of the data transfer protocol (POP3, IMAP, MAPI and NNTP for incoming traffic and SMTP for outgoing traffic, including SSL connections). The solution is compatible with the most common mail programs. The application also scans files and links sent via instant messaging systems (ICQ, MSN, AIM)
Protection from phishing:
· A database containing URLs of phishing sites is used to identify and disable links to such websites in the Internet browser, at the same time rebuffing emails from phishers in the mail program. This list is updated real-time by the Kaspersky Security Network
· Processor Intel Pentium 800 MHz or equivalent - 2Ghz reccommended
· 256MB of free RAM - 512 reccommended
· 1GB of available disk space
