What's new

Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.3.0 for Windows offers the following features and improvements:

  1. Data Encryption:
    • Added the portable mode for accessing encrypted files on removable drives as a "guest" user. That means that you can get transparent access to encrypted files on removable drives when you connect them to third-party computers that are protected by Kaspersky Endpoint Security with File Level Encryption enabled. To do this, the a user needs to enter the password that the user had set to encrypt the files. If the user has forgotten the password, recovery procedure is now available as well.
    • Automated adding drivers for the Kaspersky Disk Encryption (FDE) technology in the Windows recovery environment (WinRE). Adding drivers to WinRE can improve the stability of the application when restoring the operating system on computers protected by Kaspersky Disk Encryption technology. Drivers will be added to WinRE during the installation process.
    • Data encryption components have been added to the Kaspersky Endpoint Security web plug-in: Kaspersky Disk Encryption (FDE), BitLocker Drive Encryption (FDE), File Level Encryption (FLE), Encryption of removable drives. Thus, you can configure encryption policies not only in the Administration Console (MMC), but also in the Web Console.
  2. New verification algorithm for digital signatures of anti-virus databases and application modules that now complies with GOST 34.10-2012/34.11-2012. The application checks the digital signature when running the Update and Integrity Check tasks. The GOST 34.10-2012/34.11-2012 verification algorithm for digital signatures is required to certify the application.
  3. The names of the active policy and the Kaspersky Security Center administration group are now displayed in the local interface of Kaspersky Endpoint Security. You can view the name of the active policy and the name of the administration group by clicking the Support button in the main window of Kaspersky Endpoint Security.
  4. Added the possibility to merge items from policies of different levels: trusted devices (Device Control), trusted programs (Trusted zone), exclusions from scanning (Trusted zone). You can add items to a parent policy at the child policy level. This way you can, for example, create a consolidated list of trusted applications for the entire organization.
  5. Changed default Firewall settings. By default Kaspersky Endpoint Security now allows use of Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). That is, the network packet rule Remote Desktop network activity is disabled by default. When you create a new policy or install a new version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security, blocking of RDP traffic will be disabled.
  6. Added the Not supported by license status for Kaspersky Endpoint Security components. You can view the statuses of components in the computer properties in Kaspersky Security Center.
  7. Added the possibility to exclude IP addresses from Encrypted connections scan (Trusted addresses). You can now add not only domain names, but also IP addresses to the list of trusted addresses. You can use trusted IP addresses, for example, for corporate portals.
  8. Added password complexity check for Password protection. After checking the password, Kaspersky Endpoint Security will prompt the user to change the password in accordance with the password strength requirements if the password is too simple.
  9. Support for managing the application using the Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console. Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console is the cloud version of Kaspersky Security Center. This means that the Administration Server and other components of Kaspersky Security Center are installed in the cloud infrastructure of Kaspersky. Using the Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, you can remotely install Kaspersky Endpoint Security and configure application settings. Not all Kaspersky Endpoint Security components are available in the Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console. For example, Data Encryption is not available.
