Kaspersky is widely recognized for its rigorous anti-malware technologies. Our latest anti-malware offering combines signature-based, proactive and cloud-assisted technologies – to provide your business with even better defenses against known, new and emerging threats.
Security for file servers
Although shared storage offers many advantages, the presence of one infected file can spread malware across the corporate network. Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business includes anti-malware protection for file servers – to help your business to benefit from shared storage, without compromising on security.
Enhance your security… and save time & money on IT administration
As typical business IT networks become more complex – so does the task of managing them. Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business includes far-reaching systems management capabilities – to ease the load on your IT team and reduce administration costs. From automatic inventories of all hardware and software on your corporate network, through to vulnerability scanning & patch management, plus system provisioning, Kaspersky’s systems management tools help to make complex IT environments much easier to manage.
Protecting your precious business information – even on lost devices
There have been countless incidents whereby a lost laptop, mobile device or removable storage device has led to a leakage of confidential business data. The financial penalties and loss of reputation can have devastating effects on a business. Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business includes powerful data encryption technology – so the loss of a device is far less likely to lead to a damaging leakage of business information.
Preventing hacker attacks… and giving your IT team more control
While Kaspersky’s advanced firewall offers another level of protection – effectively controlling inbound and outbound traffic – Kaspersky’s flexible control features help your IT team to manage usage of the web, devices and applications. With Application Control, Device Control and Web Control, your IT team can easily manage which applications are permitted to run on your network, whether specific devices are granted access to your systems and how your employees are permitted to use the Internet.
Securing mobile devices and helping you to enable BYOD
More businesses are realizing the benefits of rolling out a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative that lets employees use their personal mobile devices for business activities. Because Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business includes both mobile security and mobile device management (MDM), you can control and monitor the security of mobile devices that are given access to your corporate systems and data.
Protecting your corporate email
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business offers easy-to-manage anti-malware and anti-spam protection for mail servers. In addition to delivering efficient, optimized virus scanning, Kaspersky provides intelligent spam filtering – to eliminate dangerous or distracting spam emails and reduce the amount of traffic on your corporate network.
Safer Internet access… across your business

Anti-Malware for Workstations
With a combination of signature-based, heuristic and cloud-assisted anti-malware technologies, Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business protects against known and emerging threats.
Protecting heterogeneous IT environments
Kaspersky helps businesses to secure a wider range of systems. Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business provides anti-malware protection for Mac, Linux and Windows platforms – and is fully compatible with Microsoft’s new Windows 8 operating system.
Defending your business against sophisticated new malware
To help ensure your business is protected against zero-day threats, Kaspersky delivers malware database updates much more frequently than many other anti-malware vendors. Kaspersky’s pattern-based signatures offer improved detection, while also ensuring smaller update files – so your business benefits from effective protection that places less load on your systems.
Delivering the latest protection – even sooner
Kaspersky continually updates its Urgent Detection System database – adding data about the latest malware discoveries – so your systems can be protected against new threats, prior to the release of a new malware signature.
Watching over how your applications behave
When an application launches on one of your systems, Kaspersky’s System Watcher will automatically monitor the application’s behavior. When System Watcher detects suspicious behavior within an application, Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business will block the application.
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business includes our Active Disinfection technology – which works at the lowest levels of a computer’s operating system, in order to protect against malicious code.
Millions of Kaspersky customers helping to protect your business
Millions of Kaspersky customers have opted in to let the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) collect information about suspicious behavior or malware that’s present on their computers. With this real-time data from the field, Kaspersky is able to provide all customers with a rapid response to new malware – and reduce the likelihood of ‘false positives. In third-party tests, the Kaspersky Security Network has been assessed as being able to respond to new threats in as little as 0.02 seconds.
Preventing hacker attacks
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business includes our Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) and personal firewall. Easy-to-use tools give you flexible control over inbound and outbound traffic – enabling you to set up parameters for an individual port, IP address or application.
Blocking attacks on your network
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business includes Kaspersky’s Network Attack Blocker technology – to detect and monitor suspicious activity that occurs on your network. You can preconfigure how your systems respond when suspicious behavior is detected.
Anti-Malware for File Servers
Protecting multi-platform file server environments
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business provides anti-malware protection for file servers running Windows, Linux, Novell NetWare or FreeBSD. Kaspersky’s world-class antivirus engine – plus optimized scanning – help to ensure efficient protection, without any significant impact on the performance of your file servers. In addition to protecting cluster servers, Kaspersky’s anti-malware application also protects terminal servers – including Citrix and Microsoft.
Dependable anti-malware protection
If one of your file servers develops a fault or is subject to an unplanned shut down, Kaspersky’s anti-malware application will re-launch when your file server restarts.
Ease of management – and reporting
Easy-to-use management tools and reporting features help administrators to reduce the time they need to spend on setting up file server security and producing reports.
Protection for virtualized environments
Kaspersky’s file server security solution is VMware Ready certified.
Managing IT assets – hardware, software & licenses
The complexity of the typical business IT environment makes it difficult for administrators to keep track of all of the hardware and software present on their network. However, if a business doesn’t have adequate visibility of every IT asset, how can it apply the necessary controls and protection across every element of its network?
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business automatically discovers all devices and software on the corporate network – and then records them within hardware and software inventories. With this level of visibility – of all of your hardware and software assets – it’s far easier for you to determine the security status of each of your systems and make sure you apply the relevant security settings. Furthermore, because the software inventory includes information about licenses and expiry dates, Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business helps to enable centralized license provisioning and helps you to track breaches of license conditions.
Patch management – including automatic vulnerability scanning
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business can automatically scan your corporate network in order to identify any unpatched vulnerabilities within applications or operating systems. It works with the Microsoft WSUS database and Kaspersky’s own database of application and operating system vulnerabilities. Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business can regularly synchronize data on Microsoft updates and hotfixes and apply them to your systems. For many non-Microsoft applications, information about new patches is downloaded from Kaspersky’s servers.
Operating system deployment
By automating the creation and cloning of computer images, Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business helps to save you time and optimize operating system deployment. Computer images are stored in a special inventory – ready for access during deployment.
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business helps to simplify the process of distributing applications. It enables administrators to deploy software on command or to schedule deployment for after working hours. Furthermore, the software deployment process is transparent to users.
Remote troubleshooting and deployment
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business can remotely access any computer on your corporate network – to help you resolve problems more rapidly. When you’re tasked with deploying new or upgraded software at a remote office, Kaspersky technology lets you use one local workstation as the update agent for the entire remote site – to help reduce the amount of traffic on your network.
Network Admission Control
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business helps you to control admission to your corporate network – to reduce the likelihood of dangerous malware gaining access to your systems. Because Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business automatically discovers devices, you can easily block visitors’ devices from your network and check to ensure employees’ devices are complying with your security policies. It’s also easy to set up a ‘Captive Portal’ – to give visitors access to the Internet, without giving them access to your corporate data.
By using an AES encryption algorithm with 256 bits of key length, Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business enables strong encryption of precious corporate data.
FDE and FLE encryption
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business offers both full disk encryption (FDE) and file-level encryption (FLE). FDE operates on the physical sectors of the disk – for encryption that’s ‘close to the hardware’. FDE is an extremely useful way of delivering an ‘encrypt everything at once’ approach. By contrast, FLE lets administrators encrypt individual files – which helps to enable secure sharing of data across the corporate network.
For a system’s internal hard drive, Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business lets administrators use a combination of FLE and FDE. In this way, the entire hard drive can be encrypted – while individually encrypted files can be securely shared across the business’s local network.
For a group of computers, the administrator can apply FDE to each computer’s hard disk – while also using FLE on any removable storage devices. This ensures that data on the computer is protected by encryption – and data that’s held on removable drives is also encrypted, so that it can be securely used outside the corporate network.
Encryption that’s highly integrated with other protection technologies
Although many other encryption products are not integrated within a comprehensive endpoint security solution, the encryption technologies within Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business have been developed as part of the same unified codebase as other Kaspersky protection technologies. By developing all of its primary technologies in-house, Kaspersky ensures a level of integration that means administrators can apply encryption settings under the same policy as anti-malware protection, endpoint controls and other Kaspersky security settings.
Encryption that follows ‘best practice’
With Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business, all encryption and decryption tasks are performed ‘on the fly’ – and non-encrypted versions of encrypted data are never present on a system’s hard drive. In addition, because the encryption and decryption processes are transparent to users, productivity is unaffected by encryption or decryption.
Application privilege control
When administrators run file-level encryption, application privilege control makes it easy to set clear data access encryption rules for specific applications and usage scenarios. With flexible settings, administrators can control whether a specific application is blocked from accessing the encrypted data, allowed access to the data in its encrypted form or is able to access unencrypted data. The decryption process is transparent to the application.
Application privilege control makes it easy to create secure backups, by ensuring encrypted data remains encrypted during transfer, storage and restoration – regardless of the policy settings at the endpoint where the data is restored. Furthermore, application privilege control can block the exchange of encrypted files via Instant Messaging (IM) or Skype – without affecting the legitimate use of IM or Skype.
Enabling data sharing outside your network
With Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business, users are able to create password-protected, encrypted, self-extracting packages of files and folders. This helps to ensure that sensitive data can be securely transferred and shared – via email, the web or a removable device.
Storing the decryption key in escrow
In the event of one of your systems suffering a hardware or software fault, a device-unique key – that is held in escrow within Kaspersky Security Center – enables you to decrypt data that’s stored on the failed system. Even if the operating system is unable to boot, administrators will be able to access the encrypted data.
Recovering lost passwords
If a user forgets or loses their password, a challenge / response mechanism allows the recovery of the pre-boot password.
Securing mobile devices and your corporate data
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business includes a combination of signature-based, proactive and cloud-assisted anti-malware technologies – to protect a wide range of mobile devices against today’s sophisticated malware. With updates delivered from the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network, Kaspersky helps to defend your mobile devices against the very latest threats.
Controlling applications on mobile devices
Kaspersky’s Application Control features make it easy to manage which applications are able to launch on the mobile devices that have been granted access to your network. Administrators can implement a ‘default allow’ policy – that blocks blacklisted applications but allows all other applications to run – or a ‘default deny’ policy that only allows whitelisted applications to run. Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business can also detect jailbreak or rooting incidents.
Encrypting precious corporate data
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business lets administrators encrypt any corporate data that’s stored within mobile devices – to help prevent corporate data falling into the wrong hands. Individual files or folders can be encrypted, using file / folder level encryption (FLE). For iOS devices, administrators can encrypt an entire disk or a partition.
Keeping corporate and personal data separate – on one device
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business includes containerization technologies that enable administrators to set up a separate container within a user’s own mobile device. This allows corporate data to be held within the container – so that sensitive corporate information is separated from the user’s personal data. The contents of the container can also be automatically encrypted. In addition, administrators are able to manage whether individual applications are able to access specific resources within the device. Containerization provides an additional level of security for businesses that are running a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative.
Protecting corporate data if a device is stolen or lost
In the event of a mobile device being stolen or lost, Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business includes special, remotely-operated features that let administrators lock the device, delete any corporate data that’s stored on it and find the device’s approximate location. Even if a thief fits a new SIM to the device, Kaspersky’s SIM Watch technology can automatically send you the device’s new number – so you can then remotely run the lock, find and data wipe functions.
Mobile Device Management
Making it easier to manage mobile devices
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business delivers efficient mobile device management (MDM) functionality – including support for Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and Apple MDM Server.
Kaspersky’s extensive MDM capabilities make it easy for administrators to deploy Kaspersky’s mobile security agent and control mobile apps and OS. The security agent can be delivered to devices over the air or via a tether. Administrators can easily monitor which users’ devices have completed the necessary security download, and can ensure that unprotected devices are blocked from accessing the corporate network.
Controls (Application, Device, Web)
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business includes Application Control tools that give administrators granular control over which applications are permitted to run on the corporate network – and how an application is allowed to run:
- Application Startup Control – lets administrators control the launch of an application, so administrators can grant, block or audit each application;
- Application Monitor – gives administrators the ability to monitor and classify each application as trusted, untrusted or restricted;
- Application Privilege Control – gives administrators flexible control over whether an application is granted access to specific system resources, including the file system or the registry;
- Default Allow and Default Deny policies:
- Default Allow lets you block blacklisted applications and permit all other applications to run;
- Default Deny lets you allow whitelisted applications to run – while blocking all other programs.
Kaspersky is the only security vendor that runs its own Whitelist Lab. The lab’s dynamic whitelisting service assesses the security of commonly used applications – and ensures they’re safe to run. Whitelist updates are then delivered to your systems from the cloud-enabled Kaspersky Security Network – so your business gets rapid access to Kaspersky’s latest whitelist information.
Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business includes Device Control features that help you to control the use of removable devices and prevent unauthorized devices compromising your security. With Kaspersky’s device control functionality, you can:
- Control access privileges – according to the type of device, device bus or the device’s specific serial number;
- Schedule when your device control policies are in operation. For example, it may be appropriate to allow users to attach devices during office hours, but prevent the use of such devices at other times.
With flexible Web Control functionality, Kaspersky TOTAL Security for Business helps administrators to prevent the corporate network being used to access inappropriate websites. Web Control makes it easy to monitor and filter each employee’s web browser usage. Administrators can permit, prohibit, limit or audit users’ access to specific websites or categories of websites – including games websites, gambling websites or social networks.
Security for Mail
Protection for a wide range of mail servers
Kaspersky’s mail server protection technologies defend mail traffic and groupware servers from malicious programs and spam. In addition to supporting a wide range of mail servers – including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Notes / Domino, Sendmail, qmail, Postfix, Exim and CommuniGate Pro – Kaspersky’s mail server solution can also be used to set up a dedicated mail gateway.
Easy to manage
Flexible, easy-to-use management tools give you efficient control over all aspects of Kaspersky’s mail server protection technologies – including managing scan settings, monitoring protection status and generating reports. Frequent, automatic database updates ensure you have Kaspersky’s latest protection against malware and spam.
Helps to minimize the load on your computing resources
In addition to optimized virus scanning and the ability to exclude specific items from scans, Kaspersky’s mail server protection also supports load balancing of server resources – so you benefit from high performance protection, without placing a significant load on your computing resources. Furthermore, intelligent spam filtering helps to reduce the amount of traffic on your network.
