Kaspersky Security for Windows Server

Today’s complex corporate IT networks require the highest levels of protection – a single piece of malware can rapidly spread across all nodes on the network, disrupting business processes and destroying IT infrastructure. File servers need dedicated storage security solutions that can protect critical data against the latest malware threats, performing continuously under the heaviest load conditions with minimal impact on resources.

Kaspersky Security for Windows Server has been specifically developed to protect complex networks and to help ensure your most valuable corporate resources are secured effectively and efficiently.

  • Advanced server protection

    • Cloud-assisted server protection

      Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) delivers a faster-than-ever response to new threats, improving the performance of protection components and minimizing the risk of false positives.

    • Powerful Application Startup Control on servers

      Providing unprecedented security by using configured rules to allow or block the startup of executable files, scripts, and MSI packages, or the loading of DLL modules onto Servers.

    • Protecting shared folders from crypto-malware (Anti-Cryptor)

      When file encryption activity is detected, the application blocks the originating machine from accessing any network file resources.

    • Blocking access from hosts with suspicious activity

      Functionality that blocks computer access to shared network folders on a protected server if any malicious activity has been shown by those computers while running the Real-Time File Protection or Anti-Cryptor tasks.

    Storage protection

    • ‘Always-on’ multi-layered protection for storage – plus on-demand scanning

      Whenever a file is launched or modified it’s automatically scanned, and suspicious objects are treated, deleted or quarantined. You can also launch targeted scans of any suspicious areas.

    • Proactive protection against the latest malware

      Advanced anti-malware technologies detect new and emerging malware – to help protect you against malware so new that it has not yet been identified.

    • Flexible scanning processes

      Kaspersky Security for Windows Server lets you:

      • Set the depth of protection
      • Specify which file types must always be scanned
      • Set up preset responses for the detection of suspicious or infected objects, predefined according to the type of threat
    • Optimized performance

      Kaspersky Lab’s iSwift and iChecker technologies save time and boost efficiency by ensuring only new or modified files are scanned.

    • Critical area scanning

      You can set up a dedicated task to scan the areas of your operating system most vulnerable to infection – such as autorun files and RAM.

    • Protection for terminal servers

      Because Kaspersky Security for Windows Server protects Microsoft Terminal Services and Citrix XenApp servers:

      • End-users working in desktop / application publishing modes remain protected – and are notified of events via the terminal services tools.
      • Actions performed on end-users’ files and scripts are audited.
    • Support for virtualized environments

      With VMware Ready certification – plus proven support for Hyper-V – Kaspersky Security for Windows Server delivers reliable security for virtualized infrastructure.

    • Support for server clusters

      Because it’s designed to work with complex server cluster architectures, Kaspersky Security for Windows Server protects both local disks and the cluster’s shared disks currently owned by the protected node.

    Efficient protection

    • Scalable Windows server anti-malware solution

      Administrators can specify the number of anti-malware threads on multiple-processor servers to help ensure server requests are rapidly processed.

    • Load balancing

      Resources can be allocated to Kaspersky Security for Windows Server and other applications according to pre-assigned priorities. You can also run storage anti-malware scans in background mode.

    • Selection of trusted processes

      Administrators can define which processes, such as data backups or disk defragmentation, should be excluded from scanning.

    • Uninterrupted operation for your servers

      Whenever you install or update Kaspersky Lab’s anti-malware protection, there’s no need to reboot the server.

    Flexible, easy management

    • Security management

      You can easily manage security directly or remotely via the Microsoft Management Console, Kaspersky Security Center, or by using the command line. There’s also an intuitive graphical interface for the Microsoft Management Console.

    • Centralized management console – for installation and day-to-day management

      Kaspersky Security Center provides a centralized administration tool that gives you an efficient way to:

      • Install and configure the application remotely
      • Manage security and receive updates
    • Control over administrator privileges

      You can choose the appropriate privilege level for each server’s administrator – so it’s easy to comply with specific security requirements for different departments and different roles.

    • Schedule your scans

      To minimize disruption and boost the availability of server resources, it’s easy to set scanning start and finish times.

    • Notification system

      Notifications can be sent to administrators via the messaging service or email. Kaspersky Security for Windows Server is integrated with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can operate with System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) . Alternatively, you can monitor operations by reviewing Microsoft Windows or Kaspersky Security Center event logs. Flexible search tools and filters can also be used to search for information in large-volume logs.

    • Highly stable Windows server solution, delivering superior security

      By using simple, unified components within its architecture, Kaspersky Security for Windows Server delivers fault-tolerant cloud-assisted protection for your storage.

    • Wide ranging compatibility – to protect heterogeneous environments

      In addition to supporting the latest versions of Citrix and Hyper-V, Kaspersky Security for Windows Server supports core and cluster modes, plus terminal servers.

    • Centralized management – saves you time and money

      Kaspersky Security Center provides an easy-to-use centralized management console – so you spend less time on installing and managing your Windows server security.

      Advanced protection for your critical data from any actual threats Powerful Application Startup Control in combination with Global security intelligence and Anti-Cryptor functionality delivers high levels of protection for your corporate storages and servers from unknown and advanced threats.
