Endpoint Security – Kaspersky Lab
Security is a primary concern for all educational establishments, their systems hold a lot of confidential information and schools now more than ever face a growing challenge to keep the right people in, and the wrong out. Education establishments are now deploying their own tablet and mobile devices resulting in the need for a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution. There is also the on-going need to secure physical & virtual machines, files, storage, email, Internet & collaboration servers.
In terms of security platforms available on the marketplace, there is a lot to choose from. We have partnered with Kaspersky Lab who has developed the industry’s first security platform, built from the ground up. It enables IT staff to see, control and protect their world. Their leading solution, Kaspersky Security for Business, enables the user to protect and control their endpoints from workstations to smartphones and virtual machines to secure your servers and gateways, and to remotely manage your entire security environment.
Here are 10 reasons why Kaspersky Security for Business should be your corporate security standard:
1. One Platform. Kaspersky’s technology platform is developed in-house by our own engineers. This fully integrated architecture allows for stability and streamlined IT policy creation by the security administrator. A single policy set covers anti-malware, endpoint controls, encryption, and other security features.
2. One Console. From one intuitive central console you can identify, control and protect all your endpoint assets (physical, virtual, mobile), conduct fast but thorough vulnerability assessments that help you prioritise the most critical patches, achieve real-time hardware & software inventories and obtain clear, actionable reporting.
3. One Cost. With Kaspersky, you don’t have to evaluate, budget for and order a new IT tool every time you need to protect a different area of the network. We’ve developed a comprehensive set of security and IT efficiency tools, all built into one integrated platform. Which means only one evaluation and one budget request!
4. Flexible, granular controls. With pre-defined or customised configurations, you can set and enforce security policies to manage application behaviour and permissions, connected peripherals, and web use —in the office, or on the move.
5. Painless, straightforward mobile security. Mobile endpoint protection can be deployed remotely through centralised Mobile Device Management (MDM). Kaspersky enables you to secure and protect your data, even on employees’ own smartphones and tablets.
6. Powerful Encryption. File or Full-disk encryption protects corporate data in the event of accidental device loss or theft. Kaspersky’s technology is transparent to users and applications while rendering data unreadable to cyber-criminals.
7. Efficient patch management. Advanced vulnerability scanning and patch management ensures you’re always up-to-date and fully notified about your most critical security exposures.
8. Robust systems management tools. A powerful toolkit designed to make time-consuming IT tasks like OS installation, network inventory, system provisioning, remote administration, network admission control and licence management both faster and less complex.
9. End-to-End Protection. Kaspersky has long been a leader in protecting all aspects of network infrastructure. Wide ranging support covers Windows®, Linux®, Apple, Exchange, Netware, Notes/Domino, SharePoint, iOS, Android™, Windows Mobile, Symbian and more. From the endpoint all the way to the internet gateway, you can protect it with Kaspersky Lab.
10. Proof of performance. Again and again in independent tests, Kaspersky Lab comes out on top. So don’t compromise on your security and don’t waste resources with other vendors who just can’t keep up with the threats!
