Kaspersky Lab released a new generation of its Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud, a multi-tenant cloud console solution for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and managed service providers (MSPs) overseeing customer infrastructures remotely.
The latest version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud provides corporate Macs with cloud-based multi-layered protection and gives MSPs automation and management capabilities.
The preconceived belief Macs are immune to cyberthreats makes them an even more attractive target for sophisticated malware developers aiming to gain access to the wider corporate network.
In 2016, Kaspersky Lab detected 11.8 million cyber-attacks against Mac users. MacOS-specific malware, OS-agnostic phishing and “man in the middle” type of attacks can easily refute the false sense of security felt among Apple advocates in the workplace.
Securing Windows and Mac operating systems, along with mobile platforms, is a challenge for businesses with mixed IT environments but with Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud protection for corporate Macs, small and medium-sized organizations can simplify their security routine by managing multiple MacOS and Windows workstations, mobile devices and file servers remotely, via its intuitive cloud-based console.
The enhanced cloud management console in Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud now allows MSPs to assign several administrators to manage IT security. This provides extra flexibility for service provider teams and visibility for their customers, who can now monitor protection by delegating administrator rights to internal staff. A built-in MSP dashboard includes a list of companies, number of devices, available licenses and license duration dates, so that MSPs can have a business snapshot for all managed companies on one platform.
