The online security software Endpoint 8 constitutes a protection suite that is centrally managed and incorporates a comprehensive, unified protection management system. The “business product full testing” was conducted in July and August of 2011, during which the beta version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows was evaluated along with six other vendors’ endpoint security products, the company said.
Using enhanced, multi-layer, anti-malware protection, the suite is backed by a global intelligence network which uses cloud-based security for real-time protection. The software will also monitor application activity and can undo the damage caused by malware.
Nikolay Grebennikov, Chief Technology Officer of Kaspersky Lab, commented: “Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows is a tremendous achievement for Kaspersky Lab’s research and development team, and provides a number of major benefits for our corporate clients. One of them is an unparalleled level of security, which was confirmed by the 100% detection rate of zero-day malware attacks and widespread malware. With our new corporate solution businesses are able to improve their IT security even further, utilizing flexible Whitelisting and Application Control features, and support for the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network.”
Nikita Shvetsov, Director of Anti-Malware Research of Kaspersky Lab, said: “A recent survey conducted by Kaspersky Lab indicates that IT security is one of the top priorities for businesses, especially when it comes to protection from malware. Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows provides the deepest level of protection thanks to the fully revised anti-virus engine, cloud-based security system, and other enhancements. We are pleased that the first independent testing revealed the full potential of our new corporate solution, which earned top marks for detection and removal of malicious objects, as well as performance and usability, with zero false positive detections of legitimate software.”
Andrew Lintell, corporate sales director for Kapersky Lab in the UK and Ireland said, “Businesses want to leverage new technologies for competitive advantage, but face resistance from IT professionals concerned about security and logistical cost.”
