New Product: Kaspersky Fraud Prevention
Unveiled this week, the Kaspersky Fraud Prevention platform is the company’s first offering customized for financial services and e-commerce providers. Designed to protect the average users online payments made from computers and mobile devices, this platform includes server solutions for detecting fraudulent transactions during e-payment processing, and a range of additional services. The individual platform components can function both independently or they can act complimentary, providing multi-layered protection at every stage of an online payment. 

The Kaspersky Fraud Prevention client applications work on computers running Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X as well as on Google Android and Apple iOS-based mobile devices. These applications are designed to protect user devices from financial cyber-threats that target specific operating systems. The server component of the Kaspersky Clientless Engine platform operates within the company's IT infrastructure and can detect and prevent fraudulent transactions even if the user's device has no security solution installed.

The Kaspersky Fraud Prevention platform includes an SDK toolset that enables organizations to develop their own secure mobile apps, or to strengthen the security of an existing application. The Kaspersky Fraud Prevention platform also offers exclusive access to threat intelligence reports and provides dedicated support from Kaspersky Lab’s experts on how best to combat threats encountered by an individual organization.

New Product: Kaspersky Security for Virtualization | Light Agent
Scheduled for release in Q2 2014, this addition to Kaspersky Lab’s portfolio of virtualization solutions will offer light agent support for the VMware, Citrix and Microsoft virtualization platforms. 

Kaspersky Security for Virtualization | Light Agent will provide advanced anti-malware and network protection for virtual machines through a combination of a dedicated virtual appliance and small software agents. By off-loading the anti-malware processing to the dedicated virtual appliance, the host network’s performance will not be affected, a clear improvement over deploying multiple redundant security agents on each virtual machine.

In addition to advanced anti-malware protection, Kaspersky Security for Virtualization | Light Agent will also feature the company’s award-winning endpoint controls to apply easily-managed policies, such as application control, device control, and web content filtering, to virtual machines. By integrating seamlessly within the Kaspersky Security Center administration console, Kaspersky Security for Virtualization can be managed from the same screen as Kaspersky Lab’s security for physical devices.
