today, small business owners have been confronted with a mismatch when it comes
to securing their office computers. These
business owners have had to rely on either consumer software built for personal
use, or more expensive and complex corporate solutions that require much more
Small Office Security (KSOS) has been designed to ease the management of
installing and maintaining advanced computer security in office settings where
there is limited IT expertise and resources.
KSOS also enables entrepreneurs to closely guard their confidential
business data and to enforce more comprehensive business policies on how their
employees use the Internet during business hours.

Web Use Management
employees with guidance on appropriate online behavior during work hours can go
a long way in keeping a company safe and secure. Web-usage policies help protect a small
business from malicious software entering their computing environment, while
enhancing each individual’s personal productivity. For instance, it may not be appropriate for an
employee to be downloading music, spending time on dating websites or working
on their personal online photo scrapbook while at work. A business owner may also want to limit the
use of social networking to certain hours of the workday, so it doesn’t become
all-consuming for an employee.

Randy Drawas, Chief
Kaspersky Lab Americas
“Small offices are a cornerstone of the
American economy. Up until now, business
owners have been able to secure their businesses with either consumer software
that’s not built with their business needs in mind or ‘scaled-down’ enterprise
security software that’s far too complicated for their small business. Kaspersky Small Office Security is a
breakthrough in providing the right level of protection and manageability that small
office environments require, all instantly ready to install and manage.”
Research Vice President, Security Products
“According to IDC's "Worldwide Endpoint Security 2010-2014 Forecast
and 2009 Vendor Shares report (#225759), Kaspersky Lab is the fastest-growing
endpoint security vendor worldwide. Our research found that Kaspersky Lab grew
by 44.5 percent in 2009, as compared to their 2008 market revenue. This was
over 12-times greater than the industry average. By aggressively targeting
small-office and consumer users, Kaspersky Lab is positioning itself to take
market share from its competitors for another year.”
Small Office Security will be available for purchase on March 14, 2011 through
retailers, authorized resellers, and Kaspersky Lab’s e-Store. Pricing
will be announced as the product becomes available.

Denis Maslennikov, Malware Researcher,
Kaspersky Lab Scheduled
Date & Time: Tuesday, February 15,
1:00 PM The first session sets
the stage and the challenges for both mobile carriers and security companies to

The Death of Signature-Based AV: How to Stop
Today’s and Tomorrow’s Malware
Nikolay Grebennikov, Chief Technology
Officer, Kaspersky Lab
Date & Time: Tuesday, February 15, 3:40 PM Today’s threats are polymorphic – they are able
to hide because nearly every instance changes ever so slightly to evade
detection by conventional defenses. Distinguish the most effective approach by
listening to the top IT security vendors debate various approaches to defense
such as traditional blacklisting, whitelisting, cloud-based solutions and the
concept of reputation-based security.
Adobe - Evaluating the World's Number One Most
Participant: Roel Schouwenberg, Senior Malware
Researcher Scheduled Date & Time: Wednesday, February 16, 08:30 AM Why attack Windows directly - when
attacking Adobe is more effective? Over early 2010, Kaspersky Lab found that
almost 50% of detected exploits target Adobe Reader. We will look at the
attacks against Adobe software over 2010, as well as improvements Adobe may
have made in H2 2010. We end the talk with predictions for 2011 and beyond,
based on the above research. Will Adobe remain the main target?
