Woburn, MA, July 27, 2017 – Today, Kaspersky Lab is announcing that its dedicated cloud security service, Kaspersky Private Security Network – including its technology and approach – have been awarded a United States Patent.
The technology at the core of the service allows businesses with specific regulatory requirements and strict data transfer policies to benefit from effective and instant threat detection from the cloud, without compromising on corporate standards.
In order to effectively fight the ever-growing number and diversity of modern cyberthreats, security solutions need to maintain a continuous data exchange with a cloud. This allows solutions to quickly and more accurately analyze new specimens of malicious programs and websites. The patented technology from Kaspersky Lab provides companies with strict data transfer policies a solution that allows them to benefit from Kaspersky Lab’s cloud platform, while fully complying with their policies and requirements.
The global cloud-based threat intelligence platform, Kaspersky Security Network, processes depersonalized metadata voluntarily submitted by millions of Kaspersky Lab product users providing on-the-fly detection and immediate reaction to new threats. Kaspersky Private Security Network, a private cloud with a local copy of the Kaspersky Security Network, can be built on customers’ servers within their corporate infrastructure. The unique system ensures regular one-way synchronization with the Kaspersky Security Network: the depersonalized threat data for effective detection constantly feeds into the customer’s protection while no data is sent outside.
“Due to the role cloud computing and big data play in quick and accurate detection, services like Kaspersky Security Network are indispensable in cybersecurity,” said Anton Lapushkin, head of cloud infrastructure development at Kaspersky Lab and one of the authors of the technology. “However, customers operating under strict regulations and data transfer policies are forced to disable cloud services like this, and therefore, cut off a powerful protection layer. We’re pleased to offer a solution that allows our customers to be protected, without compromising on either cybersecurity or compliance.”
Kaspersky Private Security Network is available globally as a part of Kaspersky Lab’s next generation cybersecurity portfolio for enterprise.
