Kaspersky Security Center

Designed to take the complexity out of security administration and systems management, Kaspersky Security Center gives you a single unified management console that makes it easier to manage and secure all your endpoints – including physical, virtual and mobile devices. In addition, our Web Console lets you manage your systems and security from any Internet-enabled device.

 

Endpoint Security Management

Kaspersky Security Center gives you a ‘single pane of glass’ console for configuring and managing all of our endpoint security technologies.

Multi-layered security

You have granular control over all endpoint protection functions.

  • Set up and manage security policies across a range of platforms – including Windows, Linux and Mac
  • Manage the Host-Based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) and firewall
  • Configure security for groups of workstations, file servers or individual devices
  • Manage cloud-assisted protection – from the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN)

Powerful controls

Centralized management of Application Control, Device Control and Web Control enhances your protection.

  • Define your Application Control policies – to block undesirable programs from running
  • Manage access privileges for any devices that users attach to your network
  • Monitor and control Web access and privileges

Data encryption

Configure encryption with highly integrated security policies – to protect data if devices or files are lost or stolen.

  • Centrally manage all settings for data encryption on:
    • Hard disks – file / folder encryption or full disk encryption
    • Removable storage devices – file / folder or full disk encryption
  • Align encryption policies with application and device controls

Mobile security & device management

With Kaspersky Security Center, you can manage all of the most popular mobile devices – including Android, iOS and Windows Phone – in the same way you manage other endpoints.

Mobile anti-malware

Rigorous mobile security technologies are managed from the same unified management console.

  • Protect against the latest mobile threats – using signature-based, heuristic & cloud-assisted technologies
  • Manage how users access the Web – using Web Control to block malicious & inappropriate websites
  • Protect users from phishing websites that can steal information and identity details
  • Filter out unwanted calls and texts – using our anti-spam
  • Prevent rooted / jailbroken devices accessing corporate applications or data
  • Lock, ‘wipe’ and locate lost or stolen mobile devices – these anti-theft features can be activated by an administrator or the user can immediately react to the loss / theft by activating via the Self-Service Portal

Mobile Application Management (MAM)

Our control tools – together with our ‘app wrapping’ containerization – help to secure corporate apps and data.

  • Wrap corporate apps & data in secure containers – to separate them from the user’s personal apps & data
  • Apply additional protection – including encryption – for everything within each container
  • Remotely operate Selective Wipe – to delete entire corporate containers
  • Configure Application Control – to manage which applications are permitted to launch
  • Enable safe Internet browsing – with Safe Browser

Mobile Device Management (MDM)

By enabling access to different platforms’ MDM functions – via a single interface – Kaspersky Security Center helps you to roll out unified mobile security policies.

  • Use Over the Air (OTA) provisioning to deliver the security agent to each device
  • Apply MDM policies to Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and iOS MDM devices, through a single interface:
    • Enforce the use of complex passwords
    • Encrypt data
    • Prohibit camera usage
    • Receive detailed information about the device and the apps installed on it
  • Manage firewall settings, APN, VPN and Exchange Server settings on Samsung devices – via KNOX 1.0 and 2.0
  • Enable users to perform basic administration tasks and run anti-theft features – via the Self-Service Portal

Virtualisation Security Management

Kaspersky Security Center also gives you control over our security solutions for virtualized servers and virtualized desktop environments. Whether you’re running VMware, Citrix or Microsoft-based virtualization, we offer security technologies that are optimized to help you combine protection and high consolidation ratios.

A choice of virtualization security technologies

Depending upon your choice of hypervisor and the security features you need, we provide agentless and light agent security applications:

Both applications can be fully managed via Kaspersky Security Center.

Systems Management

Kaspersky Security Center doesn’t just give you granular control over IT security, it also delivers centralized access to a wide range of systems management functionality.

Vulnerability assessment & patch management

Kaspersky Security Center helps to ease the burden of identifying and eliminating vulnerabilities within operating systems and applications – so patches can be applied more rapidly.

  • Scan your entire corporate network – and automatically detect & prioritize vulnerabilities
  • Automatically distribute patches and updates (for Microsoft and non-Microsoft software)
  • Reduce traffic for updates at remote offices – by using a remote workstation as an update agent
  • Monitor patch installation status – by getting reports on whether patches were successfully applied
  • Remotely resolve update issues

IT asset management

All hardware and software on your network can be automatically discovered and recorded in inventories – so you get total visibility of all assets that need to be managed and secured.

  • Automatic hardware inventory – including discovery of guest devices
  • Automatic software inventory – to help control software usage and licensing

Software distribution

Automated provisioning – and audited, remote access & troubleshooting – help to minimize the time and resources necessary to set up new workstations or roll out new applications.

  • Deploy software at your command or schedule it for after office hours
  • Specify additional parameters – to customize the software package that is installed
  • Use remote troubleshooting – including authorization mechanism, plus remote session logs
  • Optimize traffic for remote distribution – by using one remote workstation as the update agent for all other workstations at the remote site

Operating system (OS) deployment

Kaspersky Security Center gives you centralized control over the creation, storage and cloning of secured system images – to help optimize OS deployment, while reducing the time to deploy. UEFI is supported.

  • Store images in a special inventory – ready for access during deployment
  • Send Wake-on-LAN signals – to distribute images after office hours
  • Edit an OS image after you’ve created it:
    • Run a script or install additional software after OS installation
    • Create a boot flash drive, with Windows PE
    • Import OS images from distribution packages – Windows Imaging Format (WIM)

Enterprise-level management

Role-Based Access Control – plus support for popular SIEM systems – help to take the complexity out of managing complex IT environments.

  • Assign different security / systems management responsibilities to different administrators – via our Role-Based Access Control
  • Easily customize the management console – so each administrator can only access tools and data that are relevant to their responsibilities
  • Integrated with security information and event management (SIEM) systems – HP ArcSight and IBM QRadar
