Kaspersky releases Endpoint Security 8 for Linux

Kaspersky Lab has just released Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Linux. The program, which is designed to protect Linux workstations, is available as part of Kaspersky Work Space Security, Kaspersky Open Space Security, Kaspersky Business Space Security and Kaspersky Enterprise Space Security.

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.
