Features

Rigorous antivirus for Windows file servers
Kaspersky Lab’s latest anti-malware engine delivers file server antivirus and more. Because Kaspersky Lab delivers updates on a very frequent basis, you benefit from better protection against the very latest threats.

Improved detection & less load on your resources
Pattern-based methodologies improve malware detection, while also helping to reduce the size of update files – to deliver superior security that also helps to minimize the load on your IT infrastructure.

Cloud-assisted protection
The cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) collects data – about suspicious behavior and malware – from millions of consenting customers' computers. Armed with this real-time data from the field, Kaspersky Lab can deliver an extremely rapid response to new and emerging malware, while also reducing the incidence of false positives – so you benefit from better security that also helps you maintain productivity.

Flexible, class-leading firewall
Kaspersky Lab's Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) and personal firewall let you set parameters for an individual port, IP address or application.

Protection against network attacks
Kaspersky Lab’s Network Attack Blocker technology monitors suspicious behavior that occurs on your network. It also lets you preset how your system will respond if suspicious behavior is detected.

Protection against exploitation of vulnerabilities
Kaspersky Lab's Automatic Exploit Prevention (AEP) technology helps to ensure malware can’t exploit vulnerabilities within the operating system or the applications you’re running. AEP specifically monitors the most frequently targeted exploit vulnerabilities and delivers an extra layer of security monitoring.

Simplified management
Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows (for file servers) is supplied complete with Kaspersky Security Center – the easy-to-use, centralized management console that gives you detailed control over virtually all Kaspersky security technologies running on your IT network.
