Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.10.0 for Windows

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows (hereinafter also referred to as “the application” or as “Kaspersky Endpoint Security”) gives corporate users all-in-one protection against known digital threats.

WHAT'S NEW IN KASPERSKY ENDPOINT SECURITY

Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.10.0 for Windows offers the following features and improvements:

  1. Added support for a third-party credential provider ADSelfService Plus, to support SSO when using Kaspersky Full Disk Encryption. Kaspersky Endpoint Security monitors the user’s password for ADSelfService Plus and updates the data for Authentication Agent if the user, for example, changes his password.
  2. The option to enable display of threats detected by Cloud Sandbox technology has been added. This technology is available to users of Endpoint Detection and Response solutions (EDR Optimum or EDR Expert). Cloud Sandbox is a technology that allows you to run files in an isolated environment to analyze behavior and detect malicious activity.
  3. Additional information about files has been added to alert details for EDR Optimum users. Alert details now include information about the trust group, digital signature and distribution of the file, and other information. You will also be able to jump to the detailed file description on the Kaspersky Threat Intelligence Portal (KL TIP) directly from alert details.
  4. Application performance has been improved. To do this, we optimized the operation of the background scan and added the ability to queue scan tasks if scan is already running.
