Kaspersky Lab unveils its new Endpoint Protection Solution, EP 8.0, for Windows



IT security provider, Kaspersky Lab, has launched its new solutions for enterprise security, Endpoint Security 8 for Windows and management console Kaspersky Security Centre 9.

In Australia to promote the launch of the new solution, Kaspersky Lab Asia Pacific vice president for technical division, Nathan Wang, said the release brought a significant update that 'the IT guys would love.'

Wang explained that EP8 would target businesses of all sizes that needed to secure their cloud computing, virtualization and mobile infrastructures, offering first a deep anti malware protection and second the ability to 'undo' the damage caused by malware. He said EP8 was designed to work with Kaspersky Security Network, a cloud based threat intelligence database that gathers reputation data for files worldwide.

According to Wang the combination of the two provided seamless protection against new emerging threats. The Kaspersky Security Centre, also launched this week, replaced the previous 'Administration Kit'.

Wang said the new security centre protected both physical and virtual environments, with a focus on management, providing wizard-driven templates to meet the needs of different sized businesses. 'It will try to select the best default for each business,' he said, adding that administrators could create two-level administration server hierarchy on a single physical server, and control the network security status remotely through a web console.

Also, Wang said some of the EP8 features had been designed to respond to the security challenges of consumerisation of devices and of online applications. 'If I buy a personal 'toy' like the iPad I can easily use it for business purposes' he said. 'And this really gives headaches to the IT guys.'

He said administrators could rely on white-listing abilities to generate policies for specific applications or different employees. '30 percent of software in use are not work related,' he said. 'If you want we can reduce that percentage to zero to have maximum control.'

He explained that applications would be assigned to four different groups - Trusted, Low Restricted, High Restricted and Untrusted - and would be given different access rights depending on their classification.

The new Kaspersky security suite for Windows has been tested by independent German research centre,,and according to Kaspersky the EP8 for Windows detected 100 per cent of widespread malware samples.
