Kaspersky Security for Windows Server

Today’s complex corporate IT networks require the highest levels of protection – a single piece of malware can rapidly spread across all nodes on the network, disrupting business processes and destroying IT infrastructure . File servers need dedicated storage security solutions that can protect critical data against the latest malware threats, performing continuously under the heaviest load conditions with minimal impact on resources.

Kaspersky Security for Windows Server has been specifically developed to protect complex networks and to help ensure your most valuable corporate resources are secured effectively and efficiently.

Security for File Server

Security for Storage

  • Storage protection
  • ‘Always-on’ multi-layered protection for storage – plus on-demand scanning

    Whenever a file is launched or modified it’s automatically scanned, and suspicious objects are treated, deleted or quarantined. You can also launch targeted scans of any suspicious areas.

  • Proactive protection against the latest malware

    Advanced anti-malware technologies detect new and emerging malware – to help protect you against malware so new that it has not yet been identified.

  • Flexible scanning processes

    Kaspersky Security for Windows Server lets you:

    • Set the depth of protection
    • Specify which file types must always be scanned
    • Set up preset responses for the detection of suspicious or infected objects,   predefined according to the type of threat
  • Optimized performance

    Kaspersky Lab’s iSwift and iChecker technologies save time and boost efficiency by ensuring only new or modified files are scanned.

  • Critical area scanning

    You can set up a dedicated task to scan the areas of your operating system most vulnerable to infection – such as autorun files and RAM.

  • Protection for terminal servers

    Because Kaspersky Security for Windows Server protects Microsoft Terminal Services and Citrix XenApp servers:

    • End-users working in desktop / application publishing modes remain protected – and are notified of events via the terminal services tools.
    • Actions performed on end-users’ files and scripts are audited.
  • Support for virtualized environments

    With VMware Ready certification – plus proven support for Hyper-V – Kaspersky Security for Windows Server delivers reliable security for virtualized infrastructure.

  • Support for server clusters

    Because it’s designed to work with complex server cluster architectures, Kaspersky Security for Windows Server protects both local disks and the cluster’s shared disks currently owned by the protected node.

  • Efficient protection
  • Scalable Windows server anti-malware solution

    Administrators can specify the number of anti-malware threads on multiple-processor servers to help ensure server requests are rapidly processed.

  • Load balancing

    Resources can be allocated to Kaspersky Security for Windows Server and other applications according to pre-assigned priorities. You can also run storage anti-malware scans in background mode.

  • Selection of trusted processes

    Administrators can define which processes, such as data backups or disk defragmentation, should be excluded from scanning.

  • Uninterrupted operation for your servers

    Whenever you install or update Kaspersky Lab’s anti-malware protection, there’s no need to reboot the server.

  • Flexible, easy management
  • Security management

    You can easily manage security directly or remotely via the Microsoft Management Console, Kaspersky Security Center, or by using the command line. There’s also an intuitive graphical interface for the Microsoft Management Console.

  • Centralized management console – for installation and day-to-day management

    Kaspersky Security Center provides a centralized administration tool that gives you an efficient way to:

    • Install and configure the application remotely
    • Manage security and receive updates
  • Control over administrator privileges

    You can choose the appropriate privilege level for each server’s administrator – so it’s easy to comply with specific security requirements for different departments and different roles.

  • Schedule your scans

    To minimize disruption and boost the availability of server resources, it’s easy to set scanning start and finish times.

  • Notification system

    Notifications can be sent to administrators via the messaging service or email. Kaspersky Security for Windows Server is integrated with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can operate with System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) . Alternatively, you can monitor operations 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.
