Kaspersky Endpoint Security & Protection for Linux

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux enables cloud-assisted, multi-layered security for servers and workstations running the Linux operating system. It delivers reliable protection with minimal impact on performance.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux is available within a portfolio of products - Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, Kaspersky Security for Virtualization, Kaspersky Security for File Server – which provides complete protection for heterogeneous IT environments, ensuring that all platforms are protected all the time.

Linux threats on the rise

Although the number of threats targeting Linux is lower compared to those targeting Windows, malware attacks against Linux are on the increase. Linux is often the operation system of choice when it comes to deploying high-performance servers and price-efficient workstations, especially in the public sector and scientific institutions. Protecting these environments against rapidly evolving threats is critical.

  • Reliable protection against cyber threats

    Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux uses the same multi-layered security approach as other applications of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business to reliably protect Linux-based machines against known and advanced threats. Cloud-based threat intelligence enables rapid response to emerging threats with a minimum of false positives, ensuring uninterrupted workflow.

    • Next-generation technologies protecting your business

      Kaspersky Lab’s unique HuMachine™ approach is powered by a combination of Big Data threat intelligence, machine learning and human expertise. Together, these ensure higher levels of protection – complementing and strengthening each other more efficiently than they would as individual components.

    • Cloud-assisted threat intelligence

      Millions of Kaspersky customers worldwide voluntarily provide anonymized threat data from their devices to Kaspersky Security Network (KSN). This cloud-based threat lab gathers and stores massive volumes of metadata from suspicious files that enable it to make rapid, accurate decisions about their safety without having to completely analyze their content. This enables protection from unknown threats.

    • Heuristic analysis for improved malware detection

      Heuristic technologies combined with traditional detection methods help to significantly improve the efficiency of malicious object detection. For traditional detection methods, database updates are performed automatically on both a regular and an emergency basis to provide high malware detection rates and increased protection levels for corporate infrastructures.

    • Detection of memory-only, ‘body-less’ malware

      Scanning of disks boot sectors as well as the memory of launched processes helps spot sophisticated next-generation threats such as so-called ‘body-less’ or memory-only malware that can be extremely difficult to identify.

    • Ongoing protection with automatic restart

      In case of malfunction or forced termination, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux restarts automatically so your endpoints are instantly protected without the need for administrator intervention.

    High performance for physical and virtual machines

    Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux is specially designed to have minimal impact on other programs and overall system performance.

    • Load balancing for improved performance

      Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux server load balancing and optimized scanning technology, with the option to exclude trusted processes from scanning, improves overall product performance and reduces the amount of system resources required for protection. Security scanning can be performed in background mode while server software is being updated, helping to reduce server downtime.

    • Optimized protection for file servers

      Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux provides multi-layered protection for file servers in Linux and heterogeneous networks. It monitors and controls active network shares and adjusts automatically when activity changes, ensuring that resources are optimized and aren’t wasted monitoring non-active areas.

    • Real-time protection and on-demand scanning

      Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux scans all files that are launched, opened or modified and disinfects or deletes all infected files. The application scans specified areas of the system according to a schedule or on-demand for complete anti-malware protection. Unlike earlier versions, Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Linux also offers file scanning for unprivileged users.

    Centralized management for improved efficiency

    Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux can be fully deployed remotely via Kaspersky Security Center, making product installation and administration easy and efficient. Configure group or individual tasks and policies for Linux-based endpoints, manage scan settings, etc., from the same console that manages other Kaspersky Lab security applications. The improved command line interface simplifies product management.

    • Easy installation

      The new product version includes a fully reworked installer that helps to perform first time configuration – product installation takes just a few minutes and requires the installation of only one package.

    • Continuous operation

      After an operating system update on a workstation or server there is no need to re-install or re-setup the application – reliable protection against malware is up in running without the need for administrator involvement.

    • Flexible scan settings

      The application offers a wide range of settings, allowing administrators to ensure high protection levels without sacrificing performance. For example:

      • Adjust the level of antimalware protection
      • Specify scanning exceptions
      • Assign specific actions for suspicious or infected objects, including by threat type
      • Launch scans according to the most convenient schedule
