Kaspersky Security for Mobile

Kaspersky Security for Mobile helps to ensure mobile workers can use phones and tablets to perform work tasks… without their mobile devices putting sensitive business data or critical business processes at risk.

It provides multilayered protection, including anti-malware, anti-spam, web control, application control and device control – plus anti-theft features. To help simplify administration tasks, all functions are managed from a single management console.

  • Managing and securing every mobile device that employees use in the course of their work, can be difficult and time consuming.

    With phones and tablets able to access your corporate systems – and capable of storing so much sensitive corporate data – protecting mobile devices is just as important as securing every other endpoint in your business.

    Kaspersky Security for Mobile secures mobile devices and gives you the visibility and control you need to manage every phone and tablet that accesses your business's systems and data.

    • Protects against mobile threats

      Our advanced anti-malware technologies protect mobile devices from a wide range of threats, including ransomware, Trojans and phishing attacks. Flexible configuration tools give you granular control over which applications are allowed to run on each device. And it's easy to apply different policies for individual users – or for specific groups of users.

    • Reduces the risk of data loss

      With as many as a third of mobile devices lost or stolen every year, the risk of suffering a data security incident is significant – for every business.

      In addition, when employees use weak passwords – or run unsecure and infected applications – this brings further risks.

      Kaspersky Security for Mobile makes it easy for businesses to enforce the use of strong passwords and block the launch of unauthorized or unsecure apps. In addition, administrators can enforce the use of data encryption – so, if data is lost or stolen, it will be in an unreadable format.

      If a phone or tablet is lost or stolen, special anti-theft features help to protect sensitive data that's stored on the device. Remotely operated tools let users block access to applications and data on the missing device, wipe information off the device and find the device's approximate location.

    • Simplifies mobile endpoint management

      With typical employees each having an average of three mobile devices, that's a lot of phones and tablets for your business to secure.

      Kaspersky Security for Mobile helps you to manage and secure a wide range of mobile devices – including Android and iOS – using the same centralized management console that gives you control over the vast majority of other Kaspersky Lab business security technologies. This unified, central console helps simplify administration tasks – across all your endpoints, including mobile devices.

      In addition to traditional, signature-based protection, Kaspersky Security for Mobile includes heuristic analysis – with cloud-assisted threat intelligence delivered by Kaspersky Security Network. So, your business benefits from multilayered, real-time protection against the latest mobile threats. To assist with security administration, Over the Air (OTA) updates help to ensure every employee's mobile devices have our latest security installed.

    • Web protection – safeguards against Internet dangers

      Whether you're using a Chrome-based browser, Kaspersky Safe Browser or the Samsung Internet Browser, websites are checked before they're opened – and phishing or infected webpages are automatically blocked.

      Administrators can easily block access to sites that don't conform to corporate usage policies – such as social media, gambling, retail and adult websites, plus proxy servers.

    • Call & SMS filtering – helps boost productivity

      Call filtering and SMS filtering help to reduce the number of unwanted calls and texts – while also increasing user privacy and security.

    • Rooting and jailbreak protection – blocks potentially dangerous devices

      When users jailbreak or root a mobile device, this can compromise security – leaving the device exposed to exploits. Kaspersky Security for Mobile makes it easy for administrators to:

      • Block rooted or jailbroken devices – so they can't access corporate data and applications
      • Delete data that's stored on rooted or jailbroken devices
    • Anti-theft features – help keep sensitive data safe

      When a mobile device is lost or stolen, sensitive corporate data could be at risk. That's why Kaspersky Security for Mobile includes multiple anti-theft features that can be operated remotely. Users can:

      • Lock the missing device
      • Wipe data from the device
      • Find the device's approximate location
      • Sound an alarm on the device
      • Take a 'mugshot' photo of the unauthorized user
      • Automatically receive the device's new number – if the device's SIM is replaced

      Google Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) and Apple Push Notifications (APNs) help ensure devices on these platforms receive anti-theft commands quickly.

    Mobile Application Management (MAM)

    To roll out an effective – and secure – Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative, businesses need to have control over which applications are allowed to run… and how the permitted applications are used.

    • Data security – helps protect confidential information

      Kaspersky Security for Mobile provides a convenient way to manage data encryption on a range of mobile platforms. Administrators can also enforce the business's data encryption policy across all relevant mobile devices.

      To help reduce the chance of prying eyes seeing data or applications that they shouldn't view, administrators can enforce an application re-login policy. After a set period of inactivity, the device will ask the user to re-login.

    • Application Control

      Administrators can control which applications can be installed or launched – on devices that have access to corporate systems and data. Easy-to-configure tools help to ensure only approved applications can be downloaded onto devices. Administrators can create whitelists of permitted applications and blacklists of applications that should be blocked. In addition, compliance control helps administrators to restrict access by non-compliant devices and automatically enforce anti-theft features.

    Mobile Device Management (MDM)

    Because Kaspersky Security for Mobile gives administrators a single interface for managing each different platform's MDM functionality… it saves time and helps in rolling out unified security policies.

    • MDM support – gives administrators easy access to vital tools

      Integration with leading mobile device management platforms helps to enable easy application of group or individual policies – for Android and iOS – through a single interface.

      Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, iOS MDM and Samsung KNOX are also supported – so administrators can set up mandatory policies for encryption, use of passwords and settings for APN/VPN… plus restrictions on the use of cameras.

      Kaspersky Security for Mobile also includes management of iOS-supervised devices – giving system administrators comprehensive management rights and further enhancing user security.

    • Working profiles – add more control

      Using Android Enterprise, businesses can create work profiles for enabled Android devices. Administrators can set up business apps and manage their usage on devices.

      Support for Samsung KNOX helps administrators to manage firewall settings, APN, VPN and Exchange Server settings for Samsung devices.

    Simplified mobility enablement and management

    Kaspersky Security for Mobile helps businesses to reduce mobile management complexity and streamline security and management tasks.

    • Ease of deployment – saves time and effort

      It's easy to customize mobile endpoint security – and use Over the Air (OTA) provisioning to deliver the security agent to each device… via Google Play, the App Store or our Self-Service Portal (SSP).

      Simply send a link or QR code for each mobile device – via email or SMS message – and, after deployment, the device will automatically connect to Kaspersky Security Center.

      For Samsung Android devices, Kaspersky Security for Mobile can be deployed through the Samsung KNOX Mobile Enrollment console – to enroll devices with batch installation and initial configuration.

      Advanced features for Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) can also be deployed and managed via third-party EMM systems – including VMware AirWatch, MobileIron, IBM MaaS360 and SOTI MobiControl.

    • Self-Service Portal – helps reduce the load on administrators

      Kaspersky Security for Mobile includes a password-protected, Self-Service Portal that helps users to perform a range of basic administration tasks for themselves. When a user wants to connect a new device to your corporate network, the Self-Service Portal will guide them through the process – and make sure the device has the necessary security installed.

      The portal also gives users access to key anti-theft features – so users can lock, wipe and locate their missing devices, without having to request help from an administrator.

    • Centralized console – helps manage all devices

      The on-premises version of Kaspersky Security for Mobile is managed via Kaspersky Security Center – whereas the cloud-based version is managed via a cloud-based console. Whichever version you choose, you'll have the convenience of a single console that gives administrators centralized access to the vast majority of security functions.

      Each console provides administrators with a 'single pane of glass' view – for the management of security on mobile devices, laptops, desktops, servers, virtual machines and more. This level of integration is only possible because all of our endpoint security technologies have been developed in-house, from the same code-base.

    • Protection indicator – assesses protection level for each device

      The Kaspersky Security Center console includes a protection level indicator that gives administrators an 'at a glance' assessment of the protection level for each mobile device. The indicator classifies each device's protection level as 'high', 'medium' or 'low'.

    • Role-Based Access Control – helps to assign and divide responsibilities

      If your business runs a large network, Role-Based Access Control can help you to divide security management responsibilities between multiple administrators. For example, you may want one administrator to control and manage security for endpoints and mobile devices, while another administrator takes care of security across all servers.

    • Multi-platform support – helps keep more devices secure

      With support for Android and iOS, Kaspersky Security for Mobile helps you to secure and manage the most popular smartphones and tablets – and all from a single management console.
