Kaspersky Lab adds private security cloud to enterprise protection

Kaspersky Lab said it has announced the release of a new solution: Kaspersky Private Security Network.

Using the network, Kaspersky Lab´s products can receive real-time data about program and website reputations, and provide companies with the fastest possible protection from new threats, without exchanging data with outside servers.

The majority of information security solution providers use cloud technologies to enhance the level of protection from cyber-threats. The high performance of the cloud helps to quickly and more accurately analyse new specimens of malicious programs or websites detected on client devices.

When security applications encounter an unknown threat, they contact remote servers for a resolution, and receive an instantaneous answer. While the conventional way typically takes a few hours to update databases, the cloud helps to provide clients with faster protection from a new threat, delivered within a matter of minutes. This approach helps to save device or server computing resources, since the resource-intensive analysis is done within the cloud.

Specifically, Kaspersky Security Network (KSN), Kaspersky Lab´s distributed cloud infrastructure, has long been an effective tool with which to address the latest cyber-threats. The servers, which are strategically located in different countries, process on-the-fly requests arriving from Kaspersky Lab solutions installed on corporate and home user computers. KSN currently helps to protect over 80,000,000 users each year.

Before a security solution receives the confirmation that a tested file or a website is dangerous or innocuous, it first needs to send information into the cloud. However, this is not a viable choice for some business areas or in certain countries, even if cyber-threat statistics need to be uploaded.

To accommodate these clients, Kaspersky Lab has developed Kaspersky Private Security Network, a private cloud which contains an internal copy of KSN, incorporating all of its advantages. Databases are installed on servers located within the corporate information infrastructure. Up-to-date information about threats arrives to these databases from KSN thanks to regular one-way synchronisation, meaning that no data whatsoever is sent from the corporate network to the cloud.

Kaspersky Private Security Network, alongside with Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, Kaspersky Security for Virtualisation, Kaspersky DDoS Protection etc., is part of Kaspersky Lab´s package of solutions designed to provide large businesses with information security.

Since 1997 Kaspersky Lab has been an innovator in cybersecurity and provides effective digital security solutions and threat intelligence for large enterprises, SMBs and consumers. Kaspersky Lab is an international company, operating in almost 200 countries and territories across the globe, providing protection for over 400 million users worldwide.
