Devices based on Windows Embedded are designed to offer the best possible service to users. Their weakest point is security. We’re seeing more and more malware targeting embedded devices, including POS systems, ATMs, ticketing machines and medical devices, together with non-malware-based attacks using middleware changes and additional libraries created by insider activity.
Using a classic “anti-malware approach” is impractical due to of the limitations of low-end hardware, and is largely ineffective in this unique threat landscape. Your business needs a cybersecurity solution specifically designed to protect systems based on Windows embedded systems against new and emerging advanced cyberthreats.
Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security is designed specifically for service devices with embedded operating systems. It respects related hardware and efficiency considerations while simultaneously controlling and protecting the attack surfaces unique to these architectures.
The overall replacement of obsolete Windows XP systems is a painful process. We help you upgrade your nodes at your own pace. Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security supports all current Microsoft Windows Embedded and POS ready families, from the now unsupported Windows XP family, to Windows 10 IoT.
Powerful, effective protection against both external threats and illicit insider activity is delivered through granular Device Controls and full Default Deny mode operation for applications, drivers and libraries.
Antivirus is provided as an optional module. Once Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security is installed in Device Control and Default Deny mode, additional antivirus is not always necessary, but can be added as a further security level where needed.
Hardware requirements are low. The solution is designed to work on 256Mb RAM and 50Mb disk space while running in ‘Application Control only’ mode on Windows XP.
PCI DSS requirements (v3.1 paragraphs 5.1, 5.1.1, 5.2, 5.3, 6.2) with which the Financial Services Industry must comply, are covered by Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security and Kaspersky Security Center.
