Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac offers easily-deployed and managed anti-malware protection for endpoints running Mac OS X operating system on your corporate network and beyond from every kind of modern and future IT security threats for long-term reassurance.


  • Strong, reliable protection
    The combination of signature-based, proactive and cloud-assisted protection means Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac offers strong, reliable protection against both known and new types of malware.
  • Optimal performance
    The application delivers award-winning levels of security while consuming less than 1% of the processor’s available resources during on-access scanning, according to Kaspersky Lab test results.
  • Centralized administration
    Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac is fully supported by the Kaspersky Security Center, a centralized management tool, which allows remote deployment and updates, supports group tasks and policies as well as mobile user policies, report generation and more.

Strong, Reliable Protection

  • Powerful Hybrid Anti-Malware
    Our widely recognized anti-virus engine, enhanced with proactive protection and cloud-assisted technologies (Kaspersky Security Network), offers powerful protection against malware and other IT security threats to prevent virus epidemics and keep corporate files, data and digital communications safe, secure and fully accessible.
  • Cloud-assisted malware detection
    Millions of consenting customers have opted in to let the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) collect data about malware and suspicious behavior from their computers. This real-time flow of data helps all Kaspersky Lab customers to benefit from a rapid response to new malware and a lower rate of 'false positives' – regardless of whether they’ve opted to provide information to KSN.
  • Network Attack Blocker
    Kaspersky Lab’s Network Attack Blocker monitors suspicious activity on your network – and lets you pre-define how your systems will respond if any suspicious behavior is detected. The purpose of the Network Attack Blocker component is to stop network threats, including port scanning, denial-of-service attacks, buffer-overrun attacks and other remote malicious actions against programs and services working on the network. Network Attack Blocker uses signatures and blocks all connections that match the descriptions of known network attacks.
  • Web protection and anti-phishing
    The Internet is the primary source of malware on users’ computers, and your network is a major conduit. To keep you and your employees safe from these threats, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac:
    • scans incoming and outgoing traffic
    • blocks harmful scripts
    • Uses signatures, advanced heuristics and cloud-assisted technologies (KSN)
    To access your private and financial information, cybercriminals create fake (phishing) sites. To prevent you from inadvertently visiting these fraudulent websites, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac uses the latest heuristic analysis to check whether any URL has characteristics typical of a phishing website.
  • Fast, unobtrusive scanning
    Files are scanned in real time as they are opened, copied, run and saved to detect and neutralize threats before they can penetrate your corporate infrastructure and do any harm. Proactive Heuristic Analyzer Engine increases threat detection rates with on-demand scanning by schedule or upon request.
  • Frequent updates
    Regular and emergency updates are delivered automatically to ensure a consistently high malware detection rate to protect your corporate infrastructure.

Optimized Performance

  • Kaspersky Lab’s Intelligent iSwift Scanning Technology
    The intelligent iSwift technology in the application ensures that multiple re-scanning of frequently-accessed files is avoided, thanks to a proprietary algorithm that calculates the next scanning time for every file, significantly increasing overall product performance.
  • Optimized CPU Usage
    Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac keeps system resource usage, including СPU, disk usage and disk I/O to a minimum.

Centralized Administration

  • Remote Deployment
    The application can be installed and removed remotely by system administrators.
  • Protection Management
    Administrators can use the Kaspersky Security Center to configure and manage protection of Mac endpoints, both individually and as part of a group.
  • Automatic Updating
    Updates to antivirus databases and application modules are available on demand or automatically according to a set schedule. System administrators can now use the administration server as an update source and Network Agent as a transport.
  • Support for Centralized Quarantine and Backup Storages
    Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac doesn’t just quarantine infected files. It also provides information to your centralized administration server storages. This allows security administrators to manage incidents directly from Kaspersky Security Center and perform the actions required to solve the problem.
