Kaspersky Security 8.0 for SharePoint Server
Collaboration platforms can be a source of malware and other security risks.
If you’re running Microsoft SharePoint Server, you’ll know that endpoint protection solutions are unsuitable – as all content managed by SharePoint Server is stored in an SQL database.
Kaspersky Security 8.0 for SharePoint Server is a dedicated protection solution that uses Kaspersky’s latest antivirus engine to secure SharePoint platforms.
- Antivirus Protection
Kaspersky’s latest antivirus engine, together with regular updates, ensures a high detection rate. Kaspersky Security 8.0 for SharePoint Server can protect an entire SharePoint farm, including the front end, SQL server, applications, search, index and more.
The application has been designed to have minor impact on system performance. In addition, file filtering features can help to reduce the overhead on system and storage resources.
- Ease of management
Native management tool provides comprehensive functionality in a way that’s intuitive to use, so the application is quick and easy to operate and does not require additional training for IT personnel.
- Detailed logs and flexible reporting
A wide range of reports, logs and notifications help to keep managers and administrators informed about issues and the status of protection.
- Support for communication policies
Content filtering features help to ensure that communication on SharePoint sites is carried out according to your policies and standards. The application can prevent the storage of files that include inappropriate content.
Robust protection for your IT systems
- On-access scan
Files are scanned in real time, while they’re uploading or downloading.
- Background scan
Server content is regularly checked, using the latest malware signatures. In addition, the application can also scan content that is held on external storage devices.
Limiting the load on your hardware resources
- File filtering
File filtering can help to enforce document storage policies and reduce the demands placed on storage devices. The application enables managers to create lists of prohibited file names and extensions. Preset file type profiles are included (such as music, video and executable files), so that policies can be implemented more rapidly. By analysing real file formats, regardless of the extension name, the application ensures that avoiding the use of a prohibited file extension does not lead to a violation of the security policy.
Ease of management
- Intuitive interface
The application’s administration tool has an interface that is easy to understand and uses a scenario-based approach. All of the most commonly used administrative scenarios are included.
- Native administration tool
An entire server farm environment can be centrally managed from a single console.
A clearly laid out dashboard display provides real-time access to current product status, database version and licence status for all protected servers. Graphical representations of protection status are stored for one week.
- Backup of modified files
A backup facility keeps detailed information about modified files. In the event of an incident, this information can help with investigations. The application can also restore modified files if required.
Backups are stored in a protected, isolated environment.
- Integration with Active Directory
The application provides for the authentication of Active Directory users.
Notifications, logs and reporting
- Notification system
Automatic notifications inform system administrators and document owners about policy violation incidents, so that immediate action can be taken.
- Detailed logs
Detailed information about all product actions is recorded. This enables the cause of a problem to be identified easily and rapidly.
- Extensive reporting
Flexible reports give an overview of key events and the status of the security system. Reports can be sent by email, in HTML format.
Support your organisation’s communication policies
- Content filtering
The application prevents the storage of files that include inappropriate content, regardless of file type. The content of each file is analysed, based on key words.
The application includes a set of dictionaries for content filtering. The dictionaries cover four categories – obscene language, weapons, narcotics and pornography. In addition, managers can create further dictionaries.
