Kaspersky Lab on Wednesday made its bid to reduce the complexity associated with managing IT security processes in corporate environments, with a new product that combines the company's anti-malware technology with new mobile and system management tools.
Kaspersky has historically been known as one of the top antivirus vendors in the world, but this release is about the company spreading its wings and adding significantly more functionality to its business product, said Mark Bermingham, senior product marketing manager at the company. That functionality includes data encryption, mobile device management, system and application deployment, vulnerability scanning and automated patch management, all of which can be controlled from a single management console.
Called Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business the new product is available in three base configurations: Core, Select and Advanced. However, the underlying platform has a modular architecture which allows these configurations to be expanded according to individual customer needs.
