Kuwait Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

Kasper­sky Lab is pleased to an­nounce that it has been rec­og­nized as a Leader in The For­rester Wave(tm): End­point Se­cu­rity Suites, Q4 2016. Ac­cord­ing to the re­port, Kasper­sky Lab’s so­lu­tion meets most en­ter­prise re­quire­ments in a tightly in­te­grated pack­age. The For­rester Wave eval­u­ated Kasper­sky End­point Se­cu­rity for Busi­ness, the com­pany’s in­te­grated se­cu­rity man­age­ment so­lu­tion.

For­rester in­vited select ven­dors to par­tic­i­pate in its 2016 For­rester Wave(tm) eval­u­a­tion. All par­tic­i­pat­ing ven­dors pro­vide end­point se­cu­rity suites that pre­vent, de­tect, and re­me­di­ate end­point threats, have en­ter­prise mar­ket pres­ence and a high level of in­ter­est from en­ter­prise buy­ers. An­a­lysts eval­u­ated the ven­dors against 25 cri­te­ria on cur­rent of­fer­ing, strat­egy and mar­ket po­si­tion.

The re­port states, “Kasper­sky Lab has one of the most com­plete end­point se­cu­rity so­lu­tions on the mar­ket, with strong preven­tion, de­tec­tion, and re­me­di­a­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties. The com­pany de­vel­oped each of these ca­pa­bil­i­ties in-house, so in­te­gra­tion be­tween the dif­fer­ent com­po­nents is strong and mean­ing­ful.” It also men­tions, “Over­all, cus­tomers re­port a high level of ef­fec­tive­ness in both mal­ware and ex­ploit preven­tion, with solid post-ex­e­cu­tion de­tec­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties.”

Nikita Shvetsov, Chief Tech­nol­ogy Of­fi­cer at Kasper­sky Lab, com­mented: “We are glad to be named a Leader in The For­rester Wave(tm): End­point Se­cu­rity. We con­tinue to de­liver the in­dus­try’s best multi-lay­ered pro­tec­tion, ad­dress­ing the IT se­cu­rity needs of large or­ga­ni­za­tions, and bring­ing to­gether se­cu­rity tech­nolo­gies that help pre­vent cy­ber threats. We be­lieve in an in­te­grated ap­proach, and this means bring­ing preven­tion, as well as de­tec­tion and in­ci­dent re­sponse ca­pa­bil­i­ties to our so­lu­tions. As we de­velop our en­ter­prise port­fo­lio fur­ther, our goal is to de­liver the lat­est in­tel­li­gence and the most ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy to all key ar­eas of large IT in­fra­struc­ture.” Ear­lier this year Kasper­sky Lab en­hanced its en­ter­prise port­fo­lio with the new Kasper­sky Anti-Tar­geted At­tack Plat­form and the wide range of Se­cu­rity In­tel­li­gence Ser­vices aimed at pro­tect­ing busi­nesses from even the most so­phis­ti­cated threats.

A ded­i­cated R&D cen­ter was also opened in Dublin (Ire­land), fo­cused mainly on de­vel­op­ing ad­vanced data anal­y­sis and ma­chine learn­ing tech­nolo­gies for the com­pany’s en­ter­prise so­lu­tions of­fer­ing. The team is re­spon­si­ble for core parts of new Kasper­sky Lab so­lu­tions, fo­cused on tar­geted at­tack de­tec­tion and in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
