Anti-malware, firewall and HIPS

Multi-layer protection

Kaspersky’s latest anti-malware engine combines signature-based, heuristic and cloud-assisted technologies – to deliver multi-layer security.

Protection against zero-day threats and APTs

Kaspersky’s policy of delivering frequent updates helps to ensure you’re protected against zero-day threats and APTs (Advanced Persistent Threats). 

Better protection – with less load

Pattern-based detection methodologies improve detection and reduce the size of update files – to help minimise the load on your systems.

Urgent Detection System

Kaspersky’s Urgent Detection System database is continually updated with data about the latest malware discoveries – to help protect your systems against new threats, before the release of a malware signature.Because protection no longer relies on signature updates, Kaspersky can deliver near real-time protection.

Kaspersky System Watcher

System Watcher maintains a log of the system and resources.  In the event of malware causing an impact – within an application, the operating system or the system registry –themalware is quarantined and changes are automatically rolled back to the state prior to the system impact.

Active Disinfection

Active Disinfection works at the lowest levels of the operating system – toprotect against malicious code.

Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) delivers cloud-based protection

KSN collects data about suspicious behaviour and malware from millions of consenting customers’ computers – so you can benefit from a real-time response to new malware, with a low incidence of ‘false positives’.

Class-leading firewall

Kaspersky’s Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) and personal firewall let you set parameters for an individual port, IP address or application.

Network Attack Blocker

Kaspersky Network Attack Blocker monitors suspicious activity on your network.  You can set your system to respond in a pre-defined way if any suspicious behaviour is detected.

Automatic Exploit Prevention

Kaspersky’s Automatic Exploit Prevention technology specifically monitors the most frequently targeted exploit vulnerabilities – to apply industry-leading intelligence that provides an additional layer of enhanced security monitoring.

Endpoint controls  

Application Control

Kaspersky provides application startup and privilege control functions– together with continuous application monitoring – to deliver industry-leading functionality.  Complementary and robust Whitelisting  Controls& Blacklisting Controls – including the world’s most complete default allow and default deny settings –give the administrator an extremely comprehensive set of enhanced security capabilities.

Device Control

Flexible and in-depth controls let you manage how specific types of devices – or individual devices – are allowed to access your systems.  Geographic, time-of-day and device-type controls may be aligned with Active Directory – to help ensure efficient and granular administration and policy assignment.

Web Control

Web Control lets you administer and monitor web policies – toprovide granular control of access to Internet resources. Geographic and time-of-day controls may be aligned with Active Directory – to help ensure efficient and granular administration and policy assignment.

Encryption

Secure Cryptography

An AES encryption algorithm – with 256 bits of key length – ensures strong encryption of your data.

Full Disk Encryption (FDE)

FDE operates on the physical sectors of the disk – to deliver encryption that’s ‘close to the hardware’ and enable an ‘encrypt everything at once’ strategy. 

File-Level Encryption (FLE)

FLE offers granular encryption of individual files and helps to enable secure sharing of data across your network. For enhanced security – after a file has been encrypted, the original, unencrypted data is wiped from the hard drive.

Removable media encryption

Removable media encryption delivers full-disk and file-level encryption – to secure data that is transferred on mobile devices.

Single Sign-on

Single Sign-on means users only have to switch on their PC – and enter their user name and password – in order to load Windows and access the encrypted data on the PC’s hard drive.  With Single Sign-on, the encryption / decryption process is virtually transparent to the user… which helps to maintain productivity.

Integration with Application Control

Password-protected, encrypted, self-extracting packages of files and folders enable the secure transfer of sensitive data – via a removable device, email or the web. A special ‘portable mode’ for encrypted removable media (available for FLE) enables the securetransfer and operationof encrypted data – even onto computers that are not running Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business.

Decrypting data on faulty machines

If a system develops a fault – even if its operating system is unable to boot – you can decrypt data with special recovery tools,using a device-unique key that is held in escrow within Kaspersky Security Center.

Single management console

Every feature within Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows can be set up and managed via Kaspersky Security Center – the easy-to-use, centralised management console that gives you detailed control over virtually all Kaspersky security technologies running on your IT network. 

Kaspersky Security Center delivers a ‘one pane of glass’ management console – so you don’t have to invest time getting to grips with a different management interface for every different security technology that your systems need.
