Kaspersky Hosted Web Security protects against IT threats that penetrate the corporate network via Internet gateways. The service secures networks against malicious programs, potentially unwanted programs and spyware.
The system is deployed by modifying the settings for the proxy server used on the customer's Internet gateway.
Protection from malware and spyware. The antivirus scanning system uses industry-leading Kaspersky Lab technologies and antivirus databases.
Proactive defense. The service incorporates Kaspersky BitHunt, a proactive malware detection system. It reliably protects corporate networks from malicious programs for which signatures have not yet been included in the antivirus databases.
Scanning outgoing traffic. Kaspersky Hosted Web Security can scan outgoing HTTP/FTP traffic in order to detect spyware activity and prevent data theft. This function makes it easy for the system administrator to detect a computer infected with spyware on the corporate network.
Content control. This function can be used to create acceptable use policies for Internet access using parameters such as site type, time of day and users. The system can also block the downloading of certain data types and restrict access to undesirable websites.
No additional resources needed: As traffic is filtered on Kaspersky Lab’s infrastructure there is no need to acquire additional software or hardware, or to update the antivirus databases separately.
- Real-time scanning of Internet traffic prevents data transmission delays
- Easy deployment of the service. All it takes is a change to the proxy settings on the customer's Internet gateway
- Higher productivity ensured by the restriction of Internet access
