Kaspersky Lab has released a new version of its Kaspersky Small Office Security software to help very small businesses (VSBs) stay on top of the ever growing number of cyberthreats they face today. With enhanced anti-ransomware functionality, improved safeguarding of online financial transactions and convenient security status monitoring, Kaspersky Small Office Security can help VSBs flourish by keeping the fraudsters at bay.   

In line with recent research from Kaspersky Lab, finding that 42% of VSBs are concerned about the threat of crypto malware, the latest version of Kaspersky Small Office Security offers enriched protection against the growing threat of “cryptors”. Anti-ransomware capabilities in System Watcher component not only block malicious encryption attempts, but also trigger an automatic backup and restore.

With more and more VSBs now relying on mobile banking to access and manage their accounts, the popularity of online transactions has not gone unnoticed by the criminal community. To counteract this, the enhanced Safe Money feature in Kaspersky Small Office Security provides improved safeguarding of financial transactions from fraudsters, by protecting against the taking of screen grabs or use of the clipboard functionality, which cybercriminals typically rely on to steal precious business data and financial assets.  

As well as these important improvements, the latest version of Kaspersky Small Office Security also provides small businesses with an easy way to monitor their security status. Through a dedicated, cloud-based monitoring console, businesses have a single view of the protection status of all devices on their network – from PCs and laptops, through to file servers and mobile devices. The online portal means this information can be accessed from anywhere, at any time, and protection settings activated or changed as required, to help businesses stay totally protected.

“With the threat and damage of crypto malware a very real proposition for small businesses, the latest enhancements to our small office solution mean that VSBs can keep up and ensure ‘business as usual’ amidst an ever changing threat landscape. The reliance on mobile and online transactions between suppliers and customers has also made the safeguarding of financial interactions extremely important and we have made improvements to help VSBs focus on growing their business and remaining competitive rather than worrying about who’s watching,” said Vladimir Zapolyansky, Head of SMB Marketing at Kaspersky Lab. 

Designed specifically for businesses with 5-25 computers, Kaspersky Small Office Security provides the world’s most tested, most awarded security to PCs, file servers, laptops and mobile devices, protecting VSBs from online attacks, financial fraud, ransomware and data loss.
