Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition

Today’s complex corporate IT networks require the highest levels of protection – or a single virus can rapidly spread across all nodes on the network. File servers need dedicated storage antivirus software that protects data against the latest malware and keeps on performing – under the heaviest load conditions – with minimal effect on network efficiency.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition is the efficient Windows server antivirus solution that has been specifically developed to protect complex networks and help ensure your most valuable business resources are secured.

Highlights

Highly stable Windows server antivirus solution – for superior security

By using simple, unified components within its architecture, Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition delivers fault-tolerant protection for your storage.

Wide ranging compatibility – to protect heterogeneous environments

In addition to supporting the latest versions of Citrix and Hyper-V, Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition supports core and cluster modes, plus terminal servers.

Centralized management – saves you time and money

Kaspersky Security Center provides an easy-to-use centralized management console – so you can spend less time on installing and managing your Windows server antivirus security.

Storage protection you can rely on

  • ‘Always-on’ antivirus 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 that is so new that it hasn’t been added to any antivirus databases.
  • Flexible scanning processes
    Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition lets you:
    • Set the depth of protection
    • Specify which file types must always be scanned
    • Set up preset responses for when suspicious or infected objects are detected – and different responses can be defined, depending on 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 that are most vulnerable to infection – such as autorun files and RAM.
  • Protection for terminal servers
    Because Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition protects Microsoft Terminal Services and Citrix XenApp servers:
    • End-users that are working in desktop / application publishing modes remain protected – and are notified of events via the terminal services tools.
    • Actions that are performed on end-users’ files and scripts are audited.
  • Support for virtualized environments
    With VMware Ready certification – plus proven support for Hyper-V – Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition delivers reliable security for virtualized infrastructure.
  • Support for server clusters
    Because it’s designed to work with complex server cluster architectures, Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition protects both local disks and the cluster’s shared disks that are currently ‘owned’ by the protected node.

Efficient storage security – helps boost performance

  • Scalable Windows server antivirus solution
    Administrators can specify the number of antivirus threads on multiple-processor servers – to help ensure server requests are rapidly processed.
  • Load balancing
    Resources can be allocated to antivirus and other applications – according to pre-assigned priorities. You can also run storage antivirus scans in background mode.
  • Selection of trusted processes
    Administrators can define which processes are excluded from scanning – such as data backups or disk defragmentation.
  • Uninterrupted operation for your servers
    Whenever you install or update Kaspersky’s Lab’s antivirus protection, there’s no need to reboot the server.

Flexible, easy management – simplifies administration

  • 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 up when scans start and finish.
  • Notification system
    Notifications can be sent to administrators via the messaging service or email. Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition is integrated with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can operate with Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) – or you can monitor operation 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.
