Whether you’re operating your own in—house data center or you’re delivering Infrastructure—as—a—Service (IaaS), with Kaspersky Lab network security solutions you prevent security breaches and protect all the sensitive information you store and process. There will be many attack surfaces that can be exploited by a vast array of attack vectors. As you evolve your datacenter infrastructure to respond to new business demands, it’s likely to become even more complex. Unfortunately, this may result in more opportunities for cyber criminals to attack your business. Too bad that many IT security vendors are continuing with exactly this random, broad approach, buying in new technologies and stitching together disparate, often incompatible code bases, creating complexity and causing as many problems as they solve. The days of traditional endpoint security—discreet anti—malware, encryption, device and network controls—are coming to an end. Endpoint protection platforms (EPPs) promising tightly integrated security technologies are the growing trend in IT security, advanced threat prevention and data protection.
The more you can simplify management processes, the more clarity and less risk you can have. But there’s a world of difference between “integration” and a genuine platform. And when it comes to integration, there are varying degrees of completeness. For many vendors, “integration” has become just another word for “compatible.” And for some vendors, “compatible” means cobbling together products bought in from as many as 40 acquisitions and trying to get them to work with their own code base — never mind their customers’ systems. There are plenty of vendors promising “integrated’ solutions. Dig a little deeper and you’ll see there’s a significant difference between “playing nicely” together and the true synergy that comes from insight—based product road maps and development. Some vendors are struggling to unify their business acquisitions—yet claim they can deliver truly integrated platforms. Buying up whatever looks like it’s the “next big thing” cannot deliver the same completeness of vision—or protection.
Kaspersky Lab – One Server One Console
Security polices and reporting are managed through a single console, integrated with external resources such as Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directories and Microsoft Exchange. Hardware and software inventory databases as well as software vulnerabilities/updates are also included — driving further integration and synergy possibilities, as the same data can be used across multiple functions. No need to keep synching with different servers or data sets — everything is installed once, on the same server and managed through the same console. These deep integration and synergy capabilities give a distinct advantage over competing solutions, many of which comprise acquired technologies with multiple, separate databases that simply cannot offer the same depth of integration as Kaspersky’s platform. Fast, easy deployment. One management server, console installation and configuration process delivers completely integrated functionality, right out of the box.
Kaspersky Lab – Single Agent Architecture
Kaspersky Lab’s solution is unique in offering an endpoint agent that takes advantage of deep code integration to ensure complete, easily achieved compatibility and synergy across hardware and software configurations. Genuine endpoint protection platforms have streamlined architecture, reducing complexity and deepening integration by using a minimum of discrete agents to run tasks. Related functions such as vulnerability scanning, application updates and patching — along with protection modules such as anti—malware and encryption — have a single agent architecture — streamlining performance and reducing your management footprint. Many competing offerings require multiple agents on the same machine for functions and features such as patching, application control or encryption. This creates potential problems around agent compatibility and requires additional testing. Saves time on initial deployment and updates.
Centralized security management helps administrators. For most environments, you won’t even have to reboot systems when you install our virtualization security application. Furthermore, you can manage all of our data center security technologies from one centralized management console — to help you apply consistent security policies across your data center and reduce day—to—day operating costs. Integrated and stable security — with our data center security, you benefit from a single, integrated solution that gives you a choice of light agent or agent less security for virtual machines, plus security for the most common enterprise level storage systems.
All of the applications within our data center security solution are easy to deploy and simple to integrate into any data center design — so you save time and also benefit from a stable security platform. Whatever the configuration of your data center, Kaspersky Lab security solutions protect key data center technologies without impacting performance. You benefit from a single, integrated solution that gives you a choice of light agent or agentless security for virtual machines, plus security for the most common enterprise level storage systems.
A true endpoint protection platform controls discovery, deployment, policy configuration and updating of endpoints throughout the corporate infrastructure. Kaspersky Lab Endpoint Security’s single agent per platform means administrators can set one active policy for a managed group, covering all required components but without the need for multiple policy review or correlation. The “network agent” connects the endpoint with the administration server, performing systems management tasks (such as software and hardware inventory, vulnerability scanning and patch management) allowing for true flexibility and synergy between functions.
Easier control over policy and task implementation — single dashboard and reporting on deployment and execution, provides a comprehensive, at a glance view of policy status and compliance over the entire network. Simplified policy and task management — thanks to a single set of shared parameters and prerequisites — managed groups, delivery settings, notifications, policy implementation is optimized, eliminating redundant processes and tasks for the IT administrator.
Kaspersky Lab solutions help to keep Android, iOS and Microsoft Windows and Apple Phone devices secure and managed. Multi—layer protection — including our cloud—assisted technology and Kaspersky Lab Security Network — defend smartphones and tablets against the latest cyber threats, e.g. Trojans, phishing attacks and much more. Kaspersky Lab Mobile Security solution also helps you apply security policies & settings across almost all devices, e.g. Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows, and Apple Phone devices. Furthermore, if a mobile device is lost or stolen, anti—theft functions help you prevent access to corporate data.
Remotely operated features let you block access to data and apps on the device, wipe data and find the device’s location. Mobile application management — control tools — together with ‘app wrapping’ containerization — help to secure corporate data and systems and provide efficient BYOD security policy. Mobile device management — by enabling access to different platforms’ MDM functions — via a single interface — the Kaspersky Lab solution saves time and makes it easier to roll out unified mobile security policies.
Kaspersky Security for Virtualization provides a single solution to secure both virtual servers and VDI. Because it supports all the most commonly used platforms — including VMware vSphere with NSX, Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper V and KVM — Kaspersky Security for Virtualization is ideal for hybrid Software—Defined data centers. Based on award—winning anti—malware engine, the solution exploits the technological advantages that virtualization offers, delivering powerful security with optimum speed and efficiency, and without taking up valuable space on virtual machines.
Kaspersky Security for Kaspersky Lab Virtualization Light Agent is ideal for Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI), delivering the most advanced security capabilities to the individual machine. With the lightweight security agent integrated into the VDI template, you can enable resource—efficient multi—layered protection from the most advanced threats (e.g. ransomware) on every single VM, with no adverse effect on end—user experience. No need to keep rebuilding — security operations are off—loaded onto one or more dedicated security appliances.
