Real-time malware protection
‘Always-on’ proactive protection for network attached storage (NAS) solutions. Kaspersky’s powerful anti-malware engine checks every file launched or modified for all forms of malware including viruses, worms and Trojans. Advanced heuristic analysis identifies even new and unknown threats.
High performance scanning, featuring optimized scan technology and flexible exemption settings, delivers maximum protection while minimizing the impact on systems performance.
Exceptional fault-tolerance is achieved through a straightforward architecture using unified components designed and built to work together flawlessly. The result is a stable, resilient solution which, if forced to shut down, will restart automatically for reliable and continuous protection.
Servers are remotely installed and protected with no reboots. Kaspersky Security for Storage as well as other Kaspersky Lab solutions are managed through the intuitive central console, Kaspersky Security Center.
Flexible scanning processes help you to secure your corporate network and optimize the load on your servers. You can use a wide range of scan settings, including depth of anti-malware protection, types of file to be scanned or to be excluded from scanning.
Always-on, proactive protection
Kaspersky Lab’s industry-leading anti-malware scanning engine, built by the world experts in threat intelligence, provides proactive protection against emerging and potential threats, using smart technologies for enhanced detection.
Antivirus databases update automatically with no disruption to scanning, ensuring continuous protection and minimizing administrator workload.
Trusted zones and exempted processes
Scan performance can be fine-tuned by creating ‘trusted zones’ which, together with defined file formats and processes such as data backups, can be exempted from scanning.
Available in Kaspersky Security for Storage, the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) means malicious activities can be identified significantly faster, helping protect data storages from zero-day threats.
Centralized installation and management
Remote installation, configuration and administration including notifications, updates and flexible reporting are handled through the intuitive Kaspersky Security Center. Command line management is also available if preferred.
Control over administrator privileges
Different privilege levels can be assigned to each server’s administrator, enabling compliance with specific corporate IT security policies.
Flexible scanning and optimized performance
Reduces scanning and configuration time and promotes load balancing, helping to optimize server performance. The administrator can specify and control the depth, breadth and timing of scan activity, defining which file types and areas must be scanned. On-demand scanning can be scheduled for periods of low server activity.
Support of all main protocols
Kaspersky Security for Storage supports protocols commonly used by different storage systems: CAVA agent, RPC and ICAP.
Reporting can be delivered via graphical reports or through reviewing Microsoft® Windows® or Kaspersky Security Center’s event logs. Search and filtering tools provide quick access to data in large-volume logs.
