As a cornerstone of Kaspersky’s solutions, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows provides centralized protection of Windows workstations and Windows servers from malware, potentially dangerous programs and network attacks.
-Security for file systems
All files are scanned (for malicious content) when created, launched or modified. Any individual files, directories and disks (local and network) can also be scanned.
-Kaspersky Security Network
Tens of millions of members in our global user community volunteer (“opt-in”) to provide data about suspicious activities and attempted malware infections to the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network. The network immediately provides a response to suspected threats, much faster than traditional methods of protection. Using this experiential data, cloud-assisted protection reduces “false positives” which translates into an increase in business productivity.
Kaspersky applications scan HTTP traffic in real time using a variety of methods that include heuristic analysis of web pages. Blocking access to infected websites whose addresses are blacklisted ensures Internet users can work in a secure environment. Blacklisted URLs are updated real-time by the Kaspersky Security Network or can be customized by the administrator.
-Protection from hacker attacks
An improved firewall, together with IPS, safeguard workstations and servers on any type of network. Predefined rules for more than 250 of the most commonly used applications reduce time spent on configuring the firewall.
-Secure electronic communication
Mail traffic is scanned at the level of the data transfer protocol (POP3, IMAP, MAPI and NNTP for incoming traffic and SMTP for outgoing traffic, including SSL connections). The solution is compatible with the most common mail programs. The application also scans files and links sent via instant messaging systems (ICQ, MSN, AIM).
-Protection from phishing
A database containing URLs of phishing sites is used to identify and disable links to such websites in the Internet browser, at the same time rebuffing emails from phishers in the mail program. This list is updated real-time by the Kaspersky Security Network.
