Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux provides corporate networks running Unix-based operating systems on their endpoint machines with centralized protection from all types of malware and potentially dangerous programs. Coming from a product family based on a uniform set of world-class anti-malware and other core technologies, Kaspersky Lab’s innovative new antivirus engine uses cutting-edge component architecture to increase performance and stability, providing reliable protection that’s easy to control and manage.
New antivirus engine
The application is based on a completely new antivirus engine that dramatically increases system scanning speed, optimizes the use of system resources and has minimal impact on other programs.
Improved centralized administration
A range of improvements has brought the application’s manageability to a new level. In addition, the new version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux is fully supported by Kaspersky Security Center, a centralized management tool that makes it easy to complete a variety of IT security management tasks, starting from remote deployment of the endpoint security applications through to generation of system event reports.
Enhanced heuristic analyzer
Traditional signature scanning is supplemented with the improved heuristic analyzer. This helps to detect currently unknown threats which are similar to those that have already been detected, and significantly strengthens the overall protection level.
Effective Protection against Malware
Kaspersky Anti-Virus Engine
The new antivirus engine provides effective anti-malware protection methods against computer threats. It prevents computer virus epidemics and keeps information secure and fully accessible.
Files are scanned in real time as they are opened, copied, run and saved. IT security threats are detected and neutralized whenever the file system is accessed.
Using the improved heuristic analyzer’s pro-active engine to increase malware detection rates, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux can perform on-demand antivirus scanning of specified system areas - as and when requested or according to a schedule.
Frequent database updates
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.
You can use Kaspersky Security Center – a centralized administration tool – to install and deploy the endpoint security applications and manage them after installation both locally and remotely.
Endpoint security management
Various policies and tasks can be applied to any group of workstations to provide system administrators with flexible ways to configure Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux on a group or an individual level.
Updates to antivirus databases and application modules are available on demand or automatically according to a schedule. A new application feature is the facility to use the Kaspersky Administration Server as an update source while using Network Agent as a transport method.
Support for centralized quarantine and backup storages
Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux not only places infected and suspicious files into the quarantine and backup storage areas but also provides the appropriate information to the corresponding centralized administration server storages. This allows the security administrator to manage incidents from the Kaspersky Security Center and perform the required actions.
