Kaspersky Security for Business: Multifaceted Variable-Reflection Protection

Kaspersky Security for Business: Multifaceted Variable-Reflection Protection

Sergey Gritsachuk

You can talk as much as you can about the proposed structured cases and the adaptive konyumerskoy vector, but the main trend of proactive protection against cyber threats is still three
types of business structures, respectively, are denoted by Type A, Type B, and Type C. The differences between their approaches to the selection of security solutions are not obvious at first glance, but in practice it is quite
essential: A-Class representatives prefer flexible and customizable products, B-type symbionts required for threat prevention, detection and detection technologies, and for Type C
better preventative protective solutions.

According to Gartner

In finding the right offer, companies of all three types often turn to the results of independent research provided by analytical companies. This is extremely convenient: representatives
The business distinguishes for itself a pool of top rated developments, thus narrowing down the product range and simplifying the selection task. Unless, of course, in the top is not clearly pronounced
leader – then there is no need to speak about selection.

And so it happens: for example, in the report of the analytical company Gartner “Critical Capabilities for Endpoint Protection Platforms” there are 21
the provider of segment products and among them the highest rating was received by Kaspersky Lab, with the company not only leading in the category C offer (3.86 points out of five possible). IN
the other two, A and B, respectively, amounted to 3.56 and 3.76 points, which also led the company to the leading position.

And this despite the fact that the study included a detailed study of the capabilities of software systems in the field of threat prevention, notifications in the management console, the main functionality
incident detection systems (and response systems), third-party integration, third-party operation, and operating system support were also explored.

In the area of ​​information security, companies are limited in resources and budgets, each requiring access to effective end-device security with a configuration that takes into account
its unique features. As the landscape of IT infrastructure changes on a regular basis, Kaspersky Lab is constantly updating endpoint security products to suit everyone
business needs and helped organizations stay one step ahead of the cyber threats that plague them on a daily basis.

A comprehensive approach

However, the fact that the company has achieved impressive results is evident from the report. Therefore, it is time from assessment to go to reviewing the product itself and focusing on
those aspects that gave him the edge. Kaspersky Security for Business Developers take into account the ever-changing cyber-threat landscape and incorporate multi-level technologies
protection against various attack vectors, which allows you to successfully repel not only previously known but previously recorded cyber threats.

The solution protects work devices from the latest exploits and ransomware by leveraging behavioral analysis with a memory protection mechanism. This works quite effectively in conjunction with
monitoring of critical system processes, while also preventing the leakage of user and administrator credentials.

Equally effective is the protection against intrusion of illegitimate software on the device: quite often, under the guise of a useful utility, a complete set is provided on a user’s computer
malicious code through which an attacker gains full access to system resources. But not in the case of Kaspersky Lab product: built-in controls allow
create an exclusive list of actions and applications allowed on workstations.

Using this list, cybersecurity vulnerability is reduced to almost zero, and protection is enhanced by the Program Control feature and a continuously updated database of proven applications
(For whitelisting). By the way, the solution can be integrated with Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response to collect and analyze large amounts of data transparently, without tangible
impact on user experience. But that’s not all: the right modules allow you to control the authority of applications.

Why? There have been cases where attackers received the necessary information through completely legal programs: for example, by transmitting graphic or visual information using a webcam.
or by “listening” to a private conversation with a built-in microphone. This does not work here: the host-level intrusion prevention (HIPS) subsystem controls programs and restricts
access to critical system resources and audio and video devices, constantly reviewing the reputable databases (local and cloud) of the Kaspersky Security Network.

The system administrator may formulate specific rules for disposing of available resources according to assigned security levels, controlling access to resources such as
encrypted data. However, long before the threats enter the workplace, the vast majority of them will be blocked by network gateways: this is achieved through filtering and
analysis of network traffic. It not only manages to protect servers and other computers, but also reduces the operating costs of the company, including the maintenance of staff of IT specialists with

Reliable, lightweight, scalable

There are many problems around the world that cause data leakage, most often through external storage. It is almost unrealistic to track the level of employee loyalty, but when used
Device Control module can protect your business from the effects of data loss on unregistered or unencrypted devices. And at the same time from uploading infected data from the following
carriers to third-party computers, especially when encrypted with FIPS 140-2 and EAL2 + standards.

Mobile gadgets, which are also often tools for cybercrime, are not forgotten: it doesn’t matter if information is transmitted or intended to be transmitted
Kaspersky Security for Mobile Devices protects the enterprise infrastructure with malicious code due to vulnerabilities in devices.
For deployment and customization of mobile security, it is possible to use an existing EMM solution so as to combine it with the current business processes of the enterprise.

Finally, how all of these and many other mechanisms of Kaspersky Endpoint Security’s comprehensive business management solution are managed. For control, monitoring and control
a dedicated unitary web console can be run from any authorized workstation. It provides a complete set of tools for transparent monitoring of all nodes
enterprise information infrastructure, including workstations, servers, and mobile devices, regardless of their location and status.

Kaspersky Security for Business solutions are scalable across the board and have access to licenses, remote troubleshooters, and network settings. mechanism
centralized management, in addition to its built-in capabilities, can be expanded by integrating it with Active Directory, featuring role-based access control and embedded panels

The end module is made in the form of a single package, running on the client side. Its size is only 2 MB, while the operating knowledge base of analytical data contains
more than 50 TB of data and over 4 billion hash samples, and the mathematical model analyzes over 100,000 examples of functions and uses behavioral analysis logs with 10 million machine records
