Endpoint Security 8 includes Kaspersky Anti-Virus Engine 8.0, which is an updated version of Kaspersky Lab’s antivirus engine which provides effective anti-malware protection in real-time, as well as on demand and on schedule.
“The new version combines the functionality of the previous versions of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5.7 for Linux and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5.5 for Samba. As a result, the application uses two types of hooks to intercept file operations: at the Linux kernel level and at the SMB network protocol level. The application also features a heuristic analyser and support for disinfecting files stored in archives,” the company said in a statement.
The programme is designed to provide maximum protection for Linux-based systems and can be integrated into the corporate IT environment for purposes of centralised administration, gathering statistics and enforcing global security policies.
