New software from Kaspersky Lab helps businesses detect targeted attack

Companies need more than endpoint protection to stay secure in an increasingly complex cyber-threat landscape and Kaspersky Lab has announced two new enterprise security solutions that it says will help to meet this need.

The new products announced are the Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform and the Kaspersky Security Intelligence Services.

The Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform is a highly sophisticated solution that enables businesses to detect targeted attacks and other malicious actions through careful monitoring of network activity, web and e-mail. This allows the company to detect complex attacks at any stage, even when no malicious activity is taking place. Suspicious events are then processed via different engines, including an Advanced Sandbox and Targeted Attack Analyser for a final verdict.

The Advanced Sandbox is based on more than 10 years of experience in proactive security technology. It provides a safe, isolated and virtualised environment for analysing suspicious objects and detecting their intent. The Targeted Attack Analyser utilises data processing and machine learning technologies to assess and combine verdicts from different analysis engines. This is where the final decision to alert the staff is made.

The Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform is available as an independent solution or in combination with expert services aimed at rapid incident detection and response.  

“When businesses face an adversary with the skill, knowledge and determination to overcome the many existing security technologies, they need knowledge of possible attack vector details of the indicators of compromise and the ability to distinguish normal operations from malicious activity. This is an immense undertaking which requires strong security expertise, combined with technology that is capable of spotting a criminal act in the avalanche of daily activity in a large corporation,” commented Garry Kondakov, Chief Business Officer, Kaspersky Lab.

“This is the challenge that is being addressed with the Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform, together with the security services aimed at sharing security intelligence with our customers faster than ever before. We announce our entry into a new category of security products, one that we believe will define the future of the IT security industry.”
