Designed for integration with a variety of Linux-based mail systems, Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server delivers the security, flexibility and ease of management that businesses and ISPs demand. By providing a wide range of vital Linux mail server security functions – including anti-malware, anti-spam, anti-phishing and content filtering – in one easy-to-manage application that includes cloud-assisted technologies, Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server offers enhanced protection, while also achieving a low rate of false positives.
Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server includes the latest version of Kaspersky Lab’s award-winning anti-malware engine. Furthermore, it receives real-time information from the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) – so you benefit from a Linux mail server anti-virus solution that delivers even better performance in detecting and removing malicious attachments from incoming emails.
With real-time updates from the cloud, Kaspersky’s Web malicious URL filter blocks emails that include links to infected sites or malicious files.
Kaspersky’s innovative ZETA Shield technology helps to defend you against unknown malware and exploits – including Zero-Day attacks, Zero-Hour attacks and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).
Kaspersky’s anti-spam engine includes two powerful technologies:
Kaspersky’s new anti-phishing module receives real-time updates from the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network – for more effective detection and blocking of emails that contain links to phishing websites.
You can easily set policies to block unwanted mass mail from reaching your end users.
You can choose the method of integration, depending on your Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) – so you can integrate as a plug-in or a Milter API.
The Kaspersky Anti-Virus On-Demand Scanner allows on-demand virus checking of objects – including directories, regular files and devices such as hard drives, flash drives and DVD-ROMs.
Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server supports integration with Linux mail systems using the high-performance AMaViS interface.
Kaspersky’s easy-to-use management console, Kaspersky Security Center, gives you the ability to monitor security for all your Linux mail servers – including clusters – from a single console. If a security incident occurs, the system administrator will automatically be informed about the affected server and the cause of the issue.
Help desk specialists can now access a user’s backup and personal blacklists / whitelists – via a standard web interface, without disturbing system administrators or end users.
The web dashboard provides an at-a-glance view of status and monitoring, including information about the most recently found malware.
SNMP support lets you monitor any type of event, using SNMP events and traps.
You can choose your method of application management – using the Web console or command line interface (CLI).
Customisable reports help you to monitor and analyse your security and policies.
Administrators and document owners are informed about policy violation incidents – so immediate action can be taken.
Detailed information about all product actions is automatically recorded – to help you to identify the cause of a problem.
Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server is delivered as a set of OS-specific installation packages – and a special, post-installation script makes it easy to deploy the application and integrate it with an existing mail system.
Integration helps you in setting up rules and policies. Communication between Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server and LDAP server can be encrypted using TLS or SSL.
Kaspersky makes it easy for you to implement group-based scanning policies and rules.
You can use IPv6 naming for Internet addresses, when creating traffic rules.
The entire system can be easily migrated from a test server to a production environment, so you can thoroughly test the system before you roll it out.
In addition to running manual updates – for the anti-virus, anti-spam, anti-phishing and ZETA Shield technologies – you can also specify rules for fully automatic updates.
Kaspersky Lab’s Linux mail server security solution includes advanced spam detection technologies that help to minimise the number of spam messages that get through to your email system – so there are fewer distractions and disruptions for your users.
Because Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server also achieves a very low rate of false positives, your email system benefits from rigorous protection – without the inconvenience and disruptions that result from large volumes of legitimate emails being incorrectly identified as spam and being quarantined.
Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server incorporates Enforced Anti-Spam Updates Service (EASUS) – to reduce your email system’s ‘window of exposure’ to newly launched spam attacks. Integration with the Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) ensures your email system receives real-time information about new spam – as soon as it’s available on Kaspersky’s cloud-based database.
In addition, Kaspersky’s cloud-based Reputation Filtering technology uses sophisticated content-analysis tools to identify possible spam – and it employs cloud-assisted capabilities to ‘compare notes with other users’. As a result, you benefit from a Linux mail server security solution that processes messages with minimal latency, while it further reduces the number of false positives and increases the overall detection rate.
Kaspersky’s latest anti-phishing module also receives real-time updates from the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network. So you benefit from improved detection that can defend your corporate email system – and your users – against emails that contain links to phishing websites.
With our latest anti-virus engine, Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server achieves high detection rates and faster scanning – to deliver Linux mail server anti-virus capabilities that achieve rapid, accurate detection of malicious email attachments.
Kaspersky’s ZETA Shield (Zero-Day Exploit and Targeted Attack Shield) is designed to identify malware within targeted attacks. The combination of Kaspersky’s latest anti-virus engine and ZETA Shield significantly boosts malware detection rates – so your business can enjoy an even higher level of protection.
Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server has been designed to deliver high throughput – without significantly affecting the performance of your systems… and that helps to boost efficiency for your business.
Powerful email traffic rules and support for OpenLDAP and Active Directory, help you to implement your corporate policies – while you also give users the ability to set up their own personal blacklists / whitelists and manage their own quarantined items… which helps to reduce the number of calls to your helpdesk.
