Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.11.0 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 11.11.0 for Windows offers the following features and improvements:

  1. Log Inspection component for servers has been added. Log Inspection monitors the integrity of the protected environment based on the results of Windows event log analysis. When the application detects signs of atypical behavior in the system, it informs the administrator, as this behavior may indicate an attempted cyber attack.
  2. File Integrity Monitor component for servers has been added. File Integrity Monitor detects changes to objects (files and folders) in a given monitoring area. These changes may indicate a computer security breach. When object changes are detected, the application informs the administrator.
  3. The alert details interface for Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response Optimum (EDR Optimum) has been improved. The elements of the threat development chain have been aligned, the links between the processes in the chain no longer overlap. This makes it easier to analyze the evolution of the threat.
  4. Application performance has been improved. For this purpose, network traffic processing by the Network Threat Protection component has been optimized.
  5. The option to upgrade Kaspersky Endpoint Security without a restart has been added. This lets you ensure uninterrupted operation of servers when upgrading the application. You can upgrade the application without a restart starting with version 11.10.0. You can also install patches without a restart starting with version 11.11.0.
  6. The Virus Scan task has been renamed in the Kaspersky Security Center Console. This task is now called Malware Scan.
