Features

Rigorous security for Windows file servers
Our latest engine provides file server security and more. Because we deliver database updates on a very frequent basis, you benefit from better protection against the very latest threats.

Improved detection & less load on your resources
Our pattern-based and heuristic technologies achieve improved detection rates, while also helping to reduce the size of update files. You benefit from superior security that also helps to minimize the load on your IT infrastructure. In addition, because this latest release of Windows Endpoint Security for Windows is 30% smaller than the previous release, installation uses fewer resources.

Cloud-assisted protection
The cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) receives data – about suspicious behavior and malware – from millions of consenting customers' computers. Armed with this real-time data from the field, we can provide an extremely rapid response to new and emerging malware. It also helps us to reduce the incidence of false positives – which helps your business to maintain productivity.

Flexible, class-leading firewall
Our 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
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.

Automatic Exploit Prevention (AEP)
Our Automatic Exploit Prevention 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.

Unified management console
Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows (for file servers) is supplied complete with Kaspersky Security Center – the centralized management console that gives you detailed control over all Kaspersky Lab endpoint security technologies that are running on your IT network.
