For corporate networks running Linux-based operating systems on their endpoint machines, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux provides centralized protection from malware. Kaspersky Lab’s innovative, new antivirus engine delivers reliable, high-performance protection that’s easy to control and manage, but also offers the administrator a great amount of flexibility to customize settings.
New antivirus engine
A completely new antivirus engine significantly improves scanning speed, optimizes the use of system resources, and has minimal impact on other programs. This engine provides effective anti-malware protection – preventing computer virus epidemics and keeping information secure.
Improved, centralized administration
With improved manageability features, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux is also fully supported by Kaspersky Security Center – a centralized management tool that simplifies a wide range of IT security management tasks, including remote deployment, the generation of reports, and much more.
Enhanced heuristic analyzer
Traditional signature scanning is supplemented with the improved heuristic analyzer. This helps to detect unknown threats that have patterns similar to those that have already been detected – which significantly boosts the overall protection level.
Effective Protection against Malware
Files are scanned in real time – whenever they are opened, copied, run, or saved. IT security threats are detected and neutralized whenever the file system is accessed.
On-demand scan Using the improved heuristic analyzer’s pro-active engine to increase malware detection rates, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux can perform on-demand antivirus scanning of specified system areas – as and when requested or according to a schedule.
Frequent database updates
To provide high malware detection rates and increased protection levels for corporate infrastructures, database updates are performed automatically – on both a regular and an emergency basis.
High performance, low impact
In addition to achieving higher detection rates, the latest antivirus engine offers significantly faster system scanning speeds – to optimize the use of resources. So Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux has minimal impact on the performance of other programs or the overall system.
New application architecture Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux has a completely new component architecture, which enhances the application’s stability and improves performance.
Reduced load on hardware
The latest version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux significantly reduces the usage of system resources – including the СPU, disk, and disk I/O.
Kaspersky Security Center is a centralized administration tool that lets you install and deploy the endpoint security applications and manage them after installation – both locally and remotely.
Endpoint security management A wide range of policies and tasks can be applied to any group of workstations – to provide system administrators with flexibility in how they configure Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux on a group level or an individual level.
Frequent, Automatic updates
Updates to antivirus databases and application modules are available on demand or automatically according to a schedule.
