[/caption] The anti-virus firm said the new solution is the first true security platform built from the ground up. ?We are looking at the Philippines as one of the steadily-growing markets in the region. But the local economy is no different from mature markets elsewhere in the world. Philippine industries now rely heavily on information, the new oil — as they say and companies here, too, are investing on IT to drive business growth,? said Jimmy Fong, channel sales director for Kaspersky Lab South East Asia. In addition to sophisticated malware targeting businesses on a daily basis, IT administrators must now account for new complexities such as employees wanting to use their personal devices (tablet PCs, smartphones, and laptops) on the company?s network. Kaspersky said these new technology realities have left IT administrators struggling with related security concerns, and in most cases, they are forced to evaluate, purchase, install, and manage a new tool for each scenario. The new challenges of organized cybercrime and a boom in employee-owned devices spawned by the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trends have also made protecting business data tougher than ever. ?The release of the company?s flagship enterprise security product, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business will not only help local organizations implement better and secure policies at their fingertips but also mitigate the negative implications of emerging IT complexities and BYOD policies,? said Bryan Sat, Kaspersky Lab business development manager for Malaysia and the Philippines.
? Mobile security and device management — Kaspersky Lab lets administrators secure and protect data, even on employees? own smartphones and tablets. Mobile endpoint protection can be deployed remotely through centralized Mobile Device Management (MDM).
? Data encryption ? Secure individual files, folders, or full-disks, with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256 bit encryption to ensure information remains secure in the event of accidental device loss or theft. Kaspersky Lab?s new encryption technology can also be enforced on peripheral devices, removable drives, files, and folders, and is transparent to users and applications while rendering data unreadable to cyber-criminals.
? Endpoint control tools ? Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business is designed to control application usage through policies and dynamic white-listing. Administrators can also create custom policies around removable storage devices, USB storage devices and printers, and create on-device web policies ensure users browse the Internet safely whether on the corporate network or at home.
? Systems Management ? An array of new systems configuration, deployment, and management tools included in Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business makes time-consuming IT tasks like OS installation, network inventory, system provisioning, remote administration, network admission control (NAC) and license management both faster and less complex.
