Defends laptops, desktops & servers against malware

By combining real-time, cloud-assisted technologies plus powerful anti-malware technologies that run on your devices, Kaspersky Small Office Security defends your business against the very latest malware threats.

Award-winning anti-malware protects your:

  • Windows-based desktop & laptop PCs
  • Mac computers
  • Windows-based file servers
  • Android smartphones and tablets


Blocking malware that exploits PC software ‘bugs’

Because virtually all applications include ‘bugs’ – and malware can use these vulnerabilities as a gateway into your PCs – our Automatic Exploit Prevention (AEP) technology helps to ensure malware can’t exploit vulnerabilities.
AEP specifically monitors the most frequently targeted applications – including Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, Adobe Reader, Java and many more – to deliver an extra layer of security monitoring and protection for your PCs.

Keeping a close watch over your PCs

Our two-way personal firewall for PCs scans incoming & outgoing traffic – to help ensure the security of your local networks and Internet connections.
To help find malware infections on your PC, our unique System Watcher technology detects dangerous behavior as it’s occurring. System Watcher can even ‘roll back’ your PC – to undo most types of malicious actions.

Blocking PC applications you don’t trust

Trusted Applications mode ensures only the applications you trust are allowed to run on your PC.
It uses Kaspersky Lab’s regularly updated list of safe applications and ensures all other programs – including malware – are blocked from running on your PC.

Simplifies security – including remote management

We’ve designed Kaspersky Small Office Security to be extremely easy to use – so managing your IT security isn’t a chore and you can spend more time on your core business activities:

  • Enables centralized & remote management of your IT security
  • Lets you control use of the Web, social networking & more
  • Helps keep PCs ‘clean’ – with File Shredder & PC Cleaner


Enabling remote management – via the Web*

Our easy-to-use, cloud-based console makes it simple to set up and manage vital security functions – across all your PCs, file servers, Mac computers and Android phones & tablets… and there’s no need for any specialist IT skills.
Because this cloud-based management console can be accessed via the Internet, your off-site staff – or your external IT support consultant – can set up and manage your IT security… while you focus on other business tasks.

Helping to boost efficiency & productivity

Because uncontrolled Internet access can damage employee productivity, our flexible Web Control features for PCs let you:

  • Manage web usage for each employee
  • Block access to categories of sites – games, gambling & more
  • Enforce Safe Search mode – for safer web browsing
  • Prevent access to inappropriate or malicious websites

Managing messaging, social networking & downloads

Instant messaging access can be restricted so that your employees can only communicate with specific contacts. You can also limit employees’ activities on social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter.
Downloads of specific categories of files – such as audio or video files – can be blocked… to reduce your Internet traffic and help prevent illegal downloads.

Keeping your PCs ‘clean’

Because deleting a file isn’t enough to prevent cybercriminals accessing it, our File Shredder wizard can totally wipe deleted files from your PCs.
In addition, our PC Cleaner wizard deletes temporary files, log files, registry entries, browser & application caches… and also empties your PC’s Recycle Bin.

Adds extra security for online banking and payments

Although online financial transactions offer convenience benefits, they can also give cybercriminals an opportunity to steal money and banking details. Kaspersky Small Office Security helps keep your money, credit card numbers and bank account information safe:

  • Adds an extra layer of security for online banking
  • Blocks ‘keyloggers’ from capturing your passwords


Protecting your money

Whenever you access online banking or payment services – using your PC or Mac – our unique Safe Money technology will verify that the website is genuine… and not a fake website.
Safe Money also checks your computer’s operating system – to find vulnerabilities that affect online banking security.

Defeating ‘keylogger’ malware – on PC and Mac

Our Virtual Keyboard lets you use a secure, on-screen representation of a keyboard – instead of your physical keyboard – when you’re entering passwords, credit card details and other confidential data.
By using on-screen keys, Virtual Keyboard prevents ‘keylogger’ malware from capturing data – because you’re not typing this information on your keyboard.

Safeguarding what you type on your PC

By creating a secure connection between your physical keyboard and your computer, our Secure Keyboard technology adds extra protection.

Protects Android devices – via anti-theft and more

Remote access to systems and information is a vital part of everyday business. However, mobile malware attacks – and the loss or theft of phones that contain business data – can cause serious issues. That’s why our best-of-breed protection for Android phones and tablets:

  • Defends against malware and cybercriminals
  • Blocks unwanted calls and texts
  • Protects confidential information on lost or stolen phones


Preventing mobile malware attacks

Kaspersky Small Office Security protects Android Mobiless against many different types of malware. Every file, application and email attachment can be scanned.
In addition to traditional and proactive anti-malware technologies, Kaspersky Small Office Security also uses the power of the cloud to deliver rapid protection against the very latest malware threats.

Securing your Internet browsing

Our technologies block malicious and fraudulent links – including phishing websites that try to steal your money or your online identity.

Filtering out unwanted calls and messages

Kaspersky Small Office Security makes it easy to avoid unwanted calls and texts. You can automatically or manually create a whitelist of permitted phone numbers – or a blacklist of numbers that you want to block.
In addition, you can automatically block calls and texts that come from hidden or non-numeric phone numbers.

Protecting your privacy

Our Privacy Protection features let you hide private mobile communications from other people. You can hide contacts, hide logs and hide incoming & outgoing calls & texts.

Securing sensitive data on lost or stolen phones

Because phones store vast amounts of information, our anti-theft technologies give you remote access to your missing phone – so you can block it, wipe confidential data, take photos of unauthorized users and find the phone’s location… even if the SIM card is changed.
Our Anti-Theft Management portal gives you a web-based control center that makes it easy to interact remotely with your missing phone – so you can activate all anti-theft functions and review logs of recent anti-theft feature activities.

Prevents leakage of company & customer information

‘Data leakage’ can cause financial losses and reputational damage – especially if confidential customer information falls into the wrong hands. To protect valuable and sensitive information, Kaspersky Small Office Security:

  • Encrypts data on PCs & file servers – to protect your data
  • Backs up data – plus online backup – for data recovery
  • Manages, securely stores & synchronizes all your passwords


Keeping sensitive information confidential

It’s easy to encrypt the data on your PCs and file servers – converting data into an unreadable form that defeats cybercriminals’ attempts to access confidential information.
Users can be provided with their own password-protected, encrypted container – so each employee has a safe place to store their data.

Backing up data on your PCs and file servers

It’s simple to run scheduled data backups onto a hard drive, removable media or a network storage device. Backed up data can be easily restored – with just a few clicks – even onto computers that don’t have Kaspersky Small Office Security installed.
You can also store backup files online* – using the popular Dropbox service – and you can access your online backup files via any computer with an Internet connection.

Protecting your business’s identity

The use of strong, unique passwords for every website and app account is essential… but how do you keep track of all your passwords – especially when you’re out of the office? Kaspersky Small Office Security includes the easy-to-use Kaspersky Password Manager* that:

  • Securely stores all your passwords in an encrypted vault
  • Synchronizes them on your PC, Mac, Androids, iPhone & iPad
  • Lets you use one master password – to access all passwords
  • Automatically fills in personal details on web forms
  • Creates strong passwords on your PC – for use on all devices

Secures businesses against phishing & Internet risks

Internet access is a vital part of everyday business – but Internet-based attacks can be a significant threat to business security. Kaspersky Lab’s latest Internet security safeguards your company information, computers and Mobiless:

  • Protects against fraudulent websites trying to steal from you
  • Warns you about suspicious files and dangerous website links
  • Saves you time – by filtering out annoying spam messages


Protecting your business against online fraud

Advanced analysis techniques automatically check whether a website has the characteristics that are typical of phishing operations.
These powerful anti-phishing technologies help to ensure you – and your employees – are protected against phishing sites that may try to steal your money, passwords or other confidential information.

Making sure weblinks and files are safe

Whether you’re using a PC or a Mac, our URL Advisor warns you about suspicious or unsafe weblinks – before you click on them.
When you download an application from the Internet – onto your PC – our File Advisor technology uses real-time, cloud-based data to check whether the file could harm your PC.

Preventing people spying on your business

Our new Webcam Protection* technology makes it easy to block unauthorized access to your PC’s webcam – so cybercriminals and malware can’t use your camera to spy on you and your surroundings.

*Webcam Protection is only available for Windows PCs.

Blocking annoying spam messages and banner ads

Kaspersky Lab’s latest anti-spam technology for PCs offers more reliable filtering – so you spend less time sorting through unwanted messages.
In addition, our anti-banner technologies block pop-up windows on PCs – to help eliminate annoying distractions.

Giving you greater control over networking charges

Whenever you’re using your PC to access the Internet via public Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G, our new Cost-Aware Networking* feature automatically prevents you exceeding the data limit that you set – so you can easily manage and optimize your data traffic usage.

*Cost-Aware Networking is only available for Windows 8 or higher.
