Kaspersky Lab announces the update of its security solution for small businesses, Kaspersky Small Office Security. The updated product provides comprehensive protection for workstations and file servers running under the Windows operating system.

CEO's of small businesses are concerned about protecting their computer networks against malware, spam, Internet fraud and data leakage. They require effective solutions that are easy to install and use, and can be centrally managed. Kaspersky Lab's updated product does all of these things.

The updated Kaspersky Small Office Security solution includes a new antivirus engine with an increased threat detection rate, uses minimal system resources and is easily updated, in addition to having a heuristic analyser designed to block new malware as it emerges. The product can check for malicious code and links to phishing websites hidden inside communications sent via IM systems (such as ICQ and MSN).

Kaspersky Small Office Security is available as a boxed version including all the components necessary for a quick installation and launch. Customisation is kept to a minimum as the default settings are already optimised for most small enterprises.

The updated Kaspersky Small Office Security is simple to use and does not require any advanced IT skills, which means the services of an IT specialist are not required. The new user-friendly interface means that the system can be up and running in no time.

The updated version of Kaspersky Small Office Security is Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 compatible.

"Kaspersky Small Office Security has been specially developed to ensure that any small business' data remains protected," said Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky Lab. "The solution provides effective protection against computer threats, is extremely resource-efficient and won't distract the employee from their main activities."
