Earlier this week Kaspersky Lab, company that offers award-winning antivirus and mobile security software for home and corporate users, announced the release of Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Linux, a security software solution meant to provide security to Linux-powered workstations. It can be integrated into an existing corporate IT environment, explained Kaspersky Lab, to provide centralized administration, to gather statistics, and to enforcing global security policies.

The Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Linux security software solution is included in several products Kaspersky Lab has to offer: Kaspersky Work Space Security, Kaspersky Open Space Security, Kaspersky Business Space Security and Kaspersky Enterprise Space Security. No matter in which product it is included, it always provides maximum protection for Linux-based systems.

As a matter of fact, it doesn’t protect against threats that target the Linux operating system alone. It also provides protection against security threats that target Windows and Mac OS X as well. “Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Linux effectively neutralizes threats which target Linux, as well as those targeting Windows and Mac OS X. In combination with support for hooking Samba file operations, this provides additional protection for corporate environments which include workstations based on different platforms,” explained Kaspersky Lab in a press release.

Must be mentioned that Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Linux is based on Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5.7 for Linux and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5.5 for Samba. To intercept file operation is uses two types of hooks, mainly at the Linux kernel level and at the SMB network protocol level. It also features an heuristic analyzer and it also provides support for disinfecting files stored in archives.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Linux can be used with all main Linux distros, such as Debian, Ubuntu and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It can be used on 32-bit and 64-bit Linux editions.
