Kaspersky Lab updates Small Office Security 

The software is easy to install and manage, and combines high levels of security with the tools business owners need to compete in the global market.

“Kaspersky Small Office Security is one of our company’s best examples of combining the IT security industry’s best protection technologies into a form that anyone with even modest computer knowledge can easily understand,” said Nikolay Grebennikov, CTO, Kaspersky Lab. “Shortening the learning curve has always been a priority for our small business products, and the latest version of Kaspersky Small Office Security ensures business owners can purchase the product on their lunch break, and have it fully installed across their business by end of day.”

The upgraded software has several new features, such as Smart Money, which protects online banking transactions. The Safe Money browser launches automatically when users access financial sites. It verifies the security certificates of websites and prohibits unauthorized programs from running while users pay invoices, make purchases, and access online financial data.

The software provides mobile support for Android tablets and smartphones, including anti-malware, web browsing protection, and privacy controls. It includes anti-theft technology that allows users to track down or remotely wipe data from missing devices.

Kaspersky’s Automatic Exploit Protection monitors commonly exploited software, such as Adobe and Java, to prevent zero day attacks. Password Manager stores all passwords in an encrypted vault and will auto-populate the correct passwords to the appropriate accounts when needed. Kaspersky Small Office Security also allows businesses to securely back up their data to the cloud or local server for easy retrieval in the event of equipment failure or accidental deletion.

Additionally, the easy-to-use software allows business owners to customize employee access to websites, social networks, and applications, back up and encrypt data, and remotely manage the security settings on all employee computers.

“Small and mid-sized businesses are primary drivers of the North American economy, and unfortunately, cyber criminals have ‘followed the money’ by targeting even the smallest businesses which often lack the necessary protection to secure their finances and business data,” said Chris Doggett, senior VP, Corporate Sales, Kaspersky Lab.

“With Kaspersky Small Office Security, we’re eliminating any barriers that could make a very small business owner think our premium protection is too advanced or too costly for them to use,” he continued. “Kaspersky Lab remains committed to providing the best protection for SMBs and Enterprises alike, and this latest product for very small businesses remains a truly unique offering in the market.”

Kaspersky Small Office Security supports up to 25 user licences per business, and can be installed on PCs running Windows XP through Windows 8, file servers, and Android devices.
