What is Endpoint Security?
Endpoint security or Endpoint Protection is a technology that takes an upper hand to protect that are remotely bridged to users' devices. The use of laptops, tablets, mobile devices and other wireless gadgets connected with corporate networks creates vulnerability paths for security threats. Endpoint security attempts to ensure that such devices follow a definite level of compliance and standards.
Endpoint security management systems is a software approach that helps to identify and manage the users' computers to gain access over the corporate network. This involves the network administrator to restrict certain website access to the user in order to maintain and comply with the organization's policies and standards. The components involved in aligning the endpoint security management systems include a client, an operating system and an updated . Computer devices that are not in compliance with the organization's policy are provisioned with limited access on a virtual LAN.
Kaspersky Endpoint Security is compatible with Wnidows Server 2008 - Windows Server 2012 R2 and comes packed with a lot of features which includes:
PROTECTION FROM KNOWN, UNKNOWN AND ADVANCED THREATS
Best-in-class anti-malware combines with Automatic Exploit Prevention and real-time cloud-assisted security intelligence from Kaspersky Security Network to provide proactive, targeted protection against the latest threats.
System Watcher provides unique file restoration capabilities while Host-based
Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) with Personal Firewall help secure and
control application and network activity.
Application Control with Dynamic Whitelisting — using real-time file reputations from the Kaspersky Security Network, IT administrators can allow, block or regulate applications, including operating ‘Default Deny’ whitelisting in a live or test environment. Application Privilege Control and Vulnerability Scanning monitor applications and restrict those performing suspicious.
Web Control — Control what sites users can visit and control when and how long they can access the internet.
Device Control — granular data policies controlling the connection of removable storage and other peripheral devices can be set, scheduled and enforced, using masks for simultaneous deployment to multiple devices.
FILE SERVER SECURITY
Managed together with endpoint security through Kaspersky Security Center.
Powerful Security for Mobile Devices — advanced, proactive and cloud-assisted
technologies deliver multi-layered real-time mobile endpoint protection.
Web protection, anti-spam and anti-phishing components further increase device security.
Remote Anti-Theft — Lock, Wipe, Locate, SIM Watch, Alarm, Mugshot and Full or Selective Wipe prevent unauthorized access to corporate data if a mobile device is lost or stolen. Administrator and end-user enablement, together with Google Cloud Management support, delivers quick activation if required.
Mobile Application Management (MAM) — controls limit users to running whitelisted applications, preventing the deployment of unwanted or unknown software. ‘Application Wrapping’ isolates corporate data on employee owned devices. Additional encryption or ‘Selective Wipe’ can be remotely enforced.
Mobile Device Management (MDM) — a unified interface for Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync and iOS MDM devices with OTA (Over The Air) policy deployment. Samsung KNOX for Android™-based devices is also supported.
Self-Service Portal — allows self-registration of employee-owned approved devices onto the network with automatic installation of all required certificates and keys, and user/owner emergency activation of anti-theft features, reducing the IT administrative workload.
