Kaspersky Lab presents powerful major enhancements to its business solutions for SMBs and enterprises

Kaspersky Lab announces that existing users and new customers of Kaspersky Open Space Security™ can look forward to a powerful enhancement to the endpoint Internet security products and Management Console.

Ease of management and deployment, as well as providing ongoing protection, is key for companies of all sizes. Version 8.0 of Kaspersky Lab's Management Console provides intuitive and convenient centralised management of Kaspersky Lab's endpoint security.

What's new?

A new management interface provides wizard-like deployment and dashboards that are updated in real time reduce the time required for IT administrators to deploy and manage endpoint security. Over 40 functions are new or improved to provide an enhanced level of security in an easy to use solution to protect corporate networks of any dimensions – from several PCs to a distributed network with complex management structures.

This new functionality includes support for SNMP, integration with Microsoft NAP, the switching of clients between mobile and normal security policies together with automatic installation packages and group policies (special run-time environment settings) as well as improved tools for secure backup copying and distribution of updates.

Kaspersky Lab's approach to business solutions is to provide easy installation and reduce the time spent managing Internet security using Kaspersky Lab's Management Console. This provides dramatic reductions in the total cost of ownership of Kaspersky Lab’s antivirus solutions.

Securing the endpoint

As well as the new version of Kaspersky Lab's Management Console, Release 2 of the Windows endpoint security products will also be available. These now include a number of new technologies including an updated scan engine and heuristic analyser – a proactive defence tool. This engine provides a substantially higher malware detection level and performance and reduces the solution's use of system resources. The heuristic analyser simulates the running of unknown riskware, analyses its behaviour, and blocks malicious activities before the program is run in a normal environment.

The application is designed to protect PCs and servers running Microsoft Windows and is compatible with Windows 7.

Keith Maskell, Vice President of Corporate Business for Kaspersky Lab, stated: "We have a duty to provide the most modern and advanced level of IT protection to our corporate customers globally. This release proves our commitment, with the inclusion of the latest technologies from our own in-house, large-scale R&D activity. The updated line of corporate products will serve as a foundation stone for our future expansion."

Security check for free

Increased security is the highest-ranking reason for SMBs to change their Internet security solution. With this in mind, the Kaspersky Cybercrime Scanner (which has already been proven as a compelling tool for many SMBs), is unintrusive and can be run on PCs without uninstalling any existing Internet security product. The Cybercrime Scanner will inspect a PC for malware that the existing product has failed to detect, helping to prove the superiority of Kaspersky Lab's scan engine.
