Modern corporate networks are complex systems that typically consist of terminal servers, server clusters and other types of nodes.
Infrastructure like this demands the highest levels of protection, with file servers requiring dedicated software that won’t just protect data from the latest malware, but will also provide uninterrupted performance under the heaviest load conditions with minimal effect on network efficiency. Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition has been developed specifically for networks like this, making it easy to protect your most valuable business resources today and in the future.
In modern heterogeneous networks, a single virus can spread very quickly as it is virtually impossible to isolate a newly detected network infection immediately. Corporate users often place various files into file storages, thus exposing all nodes on the corporate network to risk, from workstations to shared file storage facilities.
Best-of-breed anti-malware protection
Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows combines signature-based, proactive defense technologies plus the power of the cloud-assisted Kaspersky Security Network. The application intelligently scans workstations and servers, and analyzes system and application behaviors. Because the Kaspersky architecture is tightly integrated, all program components work together to help maximize protection and minimize the use of computing resources.
Flexible, centralized administration
Kaspersky Security Center lets you remotely install the solution on workstations and servers, set protection parameters, manage anti-malware updates, monitor security status, and respond to events. The application also includes features for centralized vulnerability flagging, virtual machine support, and sub-administration capabilities.
Proactive technologies and heuristics
System Watcher is just one of the application’s proactive components that deliver protection against unknown threats. Using Behavior Streams Signature patterns, the application analyzes suspicious behaviors and takes immediate action. If necessary, unwanted changes can be rolled-back and damaged data can be restored.
Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows uses Kaspersky’s latest technologies to protect Windows workstations and servers on corporate networks.
Security for file systems
Whenever a file is created, launched, or modified, it is scanned for malicious content. Individual files, directories, local disks, and network disks can also be scanned on demand.
Kaspersky Security Network
Our global user community has tens of millions of volunteers that provide the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network with data about suspicious activities and attempted malware infections. The Kaspersky Security Network is capable of providing an immediate response to “Zero-Day” threats. This cloud-assisted protection also reduces the number of ‘false positives’ – which helps to increase business productivity.
Kaspersky applications scan HTTP traffic in real time, using a variety of methods that include heuristic analysis of web pages. Blocking access to infected or blacklisted websites helps to ensure Internet users can work in a secure environment. Blacklisted URLs are categorized and updated in real time by the Kaspersky Security Network or can be customized by the administrator.
Protection from hacker attacks
Workstations and servers on your network are protected by an improved firewall, together with IPS. Predefined rules for more than 250 of the most commonly used applications help to reduce the time spent configuring the firewall.
Enhanced antivirus engine
Signature and pattern-based, proactive defense is combined with cloud-assisted technologies – in order to help maximize the detection of malware. The program’s integrated codebase helps to optimize the use of system resources and minimize the impact on other programs.
QScan is a deep scanning technology that works at the lowest levels of an operating system, in order to neutralize any malicious objects that are detected at the root of a user’s system.
During periods of increased user activity, Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows reduces its demand on system resources. Scanning continues in background mode – to let users continue to work with other applications.
Kaspersky Security Center provides centralized administration for Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows on workstations and file servers. From this central console, you can install, configure, and update Kaspersky Lab endpoint solutions on your network – on physical machines or virtual machines.
On-demand and on-access vulnerability scanning and centralized reporting allow the grouping of endpoints according to detected vulnerabilities. This feature helps to identify system weak points, missing patches, and neglected application or OS updates.
