New Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud upgraded with EDR for small and medium businesses

Today, Kaspersky announces that its product, Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud, now includes endpoint detection and response (EDR) capabilities dedicated for small and medium-sized organizations. By incorporating this feature, IT administrators will now have visibility over affected endpoints and the attack kill chain so that they are able to analyze incident parameters and root causes.

Today, Kaspersky announces that its product, Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud, now includes endpoint detection and response (EDR) capabilities dedicated for small and medium-sized organizations. By incorporating this feature, IT administrators will now have visibility over affected endpoints and the attack kill chain so that they are able to analyze incident parameters and root causes. Most importantly, they will be able to take proactive measures to enhance overall business protection.

Reliable protection from cyber-risks is essential for small and mid-sized businesses to keep their work, data and finances safe. However, according to Kaspersky research, these companies may lack visibility over the IT environment when dealing with threats, as this was ranked as one of the biggest challenges by 40% of SMBs. Details about an attack, affected users and the entry point can help businesses improve their security practices, in addition to the automated protection on all corporate endpoints.

Now that EDR capabilities are available in Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud, IT managers can see visualized attack spread paths, details about affected machines (OS versions and users); infected file names and hashes; creation, modification, and startup parameters. All information is shown in the Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud online management console.

By understanding how a threat gets into an endpoint, administrators can fine-tune security policies and take additional protection and awareness measures where necessary. For example, analysis could reveal that malware got onto an employee’s laptop disguised as a graphic file through a phishing email. The administrator could then update anti-phishing settings, make changes in security profiles for users who work with sensitive information and identify that employees may require additional training on cybersecurity.

“This update brings specific educational value for small and medium businesses,” comments Andrey Dankevich, senior product marketing manager for B2B Product Marketing at Kaspersky. “It helps IT managers improve their cybersecurity expertise and gain basic incident investigation skills. They can learn more about different types of threats in the wild, through a simple and demonstrative tool, and prepare themselves to work with more complex security challenges and solutions,”

EDR functionality is available in the Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Plus tier, in test mode during 2021. To find out more and try the trial version with EDR, please visit the webpage.
