Kaspersky meets BYOD security demands

20 Mar 13

Kaspersky Lab has unveiled its new generation of business security solutions, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business (KESB), designed to help businesses overcome the latest challenges in managing a secure, efficient network.

With the increasing demand for BYOD in enterprises of all sizes, Kaspersky has significantly increased the ease of management and protection options available in this product for securing mobile devices.

The company says the Mobile Security and Device Management function allows business to provide the flexibility which staff require while ensuring sensitive corporate data is kept safe.

“Australian businesses want the flexibility to provide staff with a BYOD option, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business provides this flexibility along with piece of mind that all devices accessing sensitive corporate information are secure” said Andrew Mamonitis, MD, Kaspersky ANZ.

The company’s new flagship security platform for enterprise was built to provide the industry’s best protection from advanced malware and cybercrime, able to combat another common enemy of IT security – complexity.

In addition to malware targeting businesses, IT Administrators must now account for new complexities that include:

• Employees who wish to use their mobile devices and PCs to get their work done
• Smartphones and tablets used to access the company network from anywhere in the world
• Confidential data moving freely within the company network, or outside of the network via mobile devices, laptops or USB thumb drives
• Finding and patching holes in user applications and operating systems

“The fundamental mission of the IT Administrator hasn’t changed much, but there are more obstacles along the way," Mamonitis says.

“Organisations of all sizes deal with these challenges, but small to mid-sized businesses suffer from an additional hurdle: lack of resources and expertise to manage these new demands.

“IT managers now have a tool which will easily allow them to see, control and protect their corporate network."
