Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.4.0 for Linux
December 12, 2023
Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.4.0 for Linux ("Kaspersky Endpoint Security," "Application") protects devices running Linux operating systems against various types of threats, including network and scam attacks.
The application is used to:
- Scan file system objects located on local disks of your device, as well as mounted and shared resources, which are accessed via SMB and NFS protocols.
- Scan objects in the file system both in real time using the File Threat Protection task and on demand using scan tasks.
- Scan startup objects, boot sectors, process memory, and kernel memory.
- Detect infected objects and neutralize threats detected in them.
- Automatically select an action to neutralize the threat.
- Save backup copies of files before disinfection or deletion and restore files from backups.
- Manage tasks and configure their settings.
- Add keys and activate the application using activation codes.
- Update the application with service packs.
- Update application databases from Kaspersky update servers, via the Administration Server, or from a user-specified source on schedule and on demand.
- Use application databases to detect and disinfect infected files. During the scan process, the application analyzes each file for the presence of a threat: it compares the file code with the code of a specific threat and looks for possible matches.
- Monitor the integrity of the system or specified files and report changes. System Integrity Monitoring can be performed in continuous monitoring mode and in on-demand scan mode.
- Manage the operating system firewall and restore the set of firewall rules if they were changed.
- Protect files in local directories with network access via SMB / NFS from remote malicious encryption.
- Analyze traffic sent to users' devices via HTTP / HTTPS and FTP and check if web addresses are malicious or phishing.
- Configure flexible restrictions on access to data storage devices (hard disks, removable disks, CD / DVD drives), data transfer equipment (modems), data conversion devices (printers) and interfaces for connecting devices (USB, FireWire).
- Check removable drives when connected to your device.
- Scan inbound network traffic for activity that is typical of network attacks.
- Scan containers, images and namespaces, as well as use Kaspersky Endpoint Security as a container application (hereinafter referred to as KESL container).
- Receive information about application actions on your device.
- Configure encrypted connections scan settings.
- Control the start of applications and restrict access to applications on user devices to help reduce the risk of client device infections.
- Get information about all executable files of the applications installed on client devices using the Inventory Scan task, which can be useful, for example, for creating Application Control rules.
- Configure integration between Kaspersky Endpoint Security and Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response (MDR) to enable continuous search, detection and elimination of threats aimed at your organization.
- Configure integration of Kaspersky Endpoint Security with Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response, a component of the Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform (hereinafter also referred to as EDR (KATA)), to ensure the protection of your organization's IT infrastructure and promptly detect threats, including zero-day attacks, targeted attacks, and advanced persistent threats.
- Use Kaspersky Security Network. The use of data from Kaspersky Security Network ensures faster responses by Kaspersky Endpoint Security to various threats, improves the performance of some protection components, and reduces the likelihood of false positives.
- Limit user access to the application functions according to the user roles.
- Notify the administrator about events that occurred while the application was running.
- Check the integrity of application components using the integrity check tool.
You can manage Kaspersky Endpoint Security using the following methods:
- Using control commands from the command line.
- Using Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console.
- Using Kaspersky Security Center Web Console and Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.
- Using a graphical user interface.
