Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition

Modern corporate networks are complex systems that typically consist of terminal servers, server clusters and other types of nodes.

Infrastructure like this demands the highest levels of protection, with file servers requiring dedicated software that won’t just protect data from the latest malware, but will also provide uninterrupted performance under the heaviest load conditions with minimal effect on network efficiency. Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition has been developed specifically for networks like this, making it easy to protect your most valuable business resources today and in the future.

In modern heterogeneous networks, a single virus can spread very quickly as it is virtually impossible to isolate a newly detected network infection immediately. Corporate users often place various files into file storages, thus exposing all nodes on the corporate network to risk, from workstations to shared file storage facilities.

    Compatible with disk storage management systems (Hierarchical Storage Management), it provides antivirus protection for file systems with even the most complex hierarchies.
  • Always-on antivirus protection and on-demand scanning
    Every file that is launched or modified is scanned, with any suspicious objects treated, deleted or quarantined. You can also launch targeted scans of any suspicious areas.
  • Proactive protection from malware
    Advanced anti-malware protection identifies malicious programs even if they are not yet on IT security providers’ antivirus databases.
  • Critical area scanning
    A dedicated task can be run to scan the areas of your operating system most exposed to infection, such as autorun files and RAM.
  • Flexible scan settings
    Scan settings allow you to set the depth of protection, specify which file types must always be scanned and preset responses to suspicious and infected objects, according to threat type.
  • Optimized performance with iSwift and iChecker technologies
    To save time and speed up performance, once all objects have been scanned, Kaspersky Lab’s proprietary technologies iSwift and iChecker ensure only new and modified files are scanned in the future.
  • Terminal server protection
    With protection for Microsoft Terminal Services and Citrix XenApp servers, end-users working in desktop/application publishing modes remain protected, and are notified of events using the terminal services tools. This also ensures that actions performed on end-users’ files and scripts are audited.
  • Support for virtualized network infrastructure
    Proven Hyper-V support and VMware Ready certification guarantee reliability in virtual environments.
  • Third-party compatibility
    Seamlessly integrates with dedicated server software such as IBM Tivoli, Symantec Enterprise Vault and HP Data Protector.
    Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition is compatible with Citrix XenApp and has been awarded a Citrix Ready certificate.
  • Cluster support
    Designed to work with complex server cluster architecture, Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition protects both local disks and the cluster’s shared disks, currently owned by the protected node.

  • Scalability
    To ensure server requests are processed as quickly as possible, administrators can specify the number of antivirus threads on multiple-processor servers.
  • Load balancing
    To limit server load, resources can be allocated between the antivirus and other applications according to pre-assigned priorities: antivirus scanning can also run in background mode.
  • Selection of trusted processes
    Administrators can choose to exempt secure processes such as data backups or defragmentation of the hard drive.
  • Uninterrupted server operation
    A server reboot is not required when antivirus protection is installed or updated.

  • Centralized installation and management
    Compatible with Kaspersky Security Center - a centralized administration management tool that enables you to install and configure the application remotely, manage operations and receive updates.
  • Product management
    Manage IT security directly or remotely via the Microsoft Management Console, Kaspersky Security Center, or by using the command line. The product also comes with an intuitive graphic interface for the Microsoft Management Console.
  • Control over administrator privileges
    To comply with department-specific or internal security requirements, privilege levels can be assigned to each server’s administrator.
  • Flexible setting of scan times
    Decide when your scans start and finish - for maximum server resource availability and minimum disruption to business operations.
  • Notification system
    Administrator notifications are supported via the messaging service or email. The application is integrated with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can operate with Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) or the administrator can monitor the application’s operation by reviewing Microsoft Windows or Kaspersky Security Center event logs.
    Flexible search tools and filters can also be used to search for information in large-volume logs.
