‘Always-on’ storage antivirus protection – plus on-demand scanning
Whenever a file is launched or modified, it’s automatically scanned – suspicious objects are treated or deleted and quarantined for further analysis.
Proactive anti-malware technologies
Kaspersky Lab’s latest anti-malware engine uses advanced techniques – including heuristic analysis – to deliver more accurate detection of malware and more rigorous antivirus for storage.
Backup of suspicious objects
When a suspicious object is detected, it’s placed into quarantine – and, before any actions are performed on the object, an unmodified copy is placed into backup storage.
Kaspersky Lab’s flexible scanning processes help you to secure your corporate network and optimise the load on your servers. You can define a wide range of scan settings, including:
- Exempting specific processes from scanning
- Setting the depth of antivirus protection
- Specifying which types of file must always be scanned
- Specifying which types of file should always be excluded from scans
Administrator-selectable ‘trusted processes’
If the performance of a specific task – such as a data backup – is affected by anti-malware scanning, the task can be exempted from the scanning process.
Support for Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM)
Kaspersky Security for Storage is compatible with disk storage management systems (Hierarchical Storage Management) – and provides effective antivirus protection for file systems that have complex hierarchies.
Easy-to-use, centralised management console
Kaspersky Security for Storage is supplied complete with Kaspersky Security Center – a centralised management console that supports the remote installation and configuration of the product, and simplifies the management of day-to-day operation, updates and notifications.
A choice of management tools
You can manage Kaspersky Security for Storage either directly or remotely via the Microsoft Management Console or Kaspersky Security Center, or by using the command line. The console provides graphical reports on the protection status of your EMC VNX and NetApp equipment.
A choice of privilege levels can be assigned to each server’s administrator – to help ensure compliance with specific security requirements.
Administrator notifications – for an extensive range of events – can be sent via the messaging service or email. Kaspersky Security for Storage is integrated with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can operate with Microsoft Operations Management (MOM).
Administrators can monitor operation, via graphical reports – or by reviewing Microsoft Windows or Kaspersky Security Center event logs. An integrated search tool supports filters – for quick searches of large-volume logs.
