Kaspersky Lab debuts advanced cybersecurity platform to protect enterprises from complex threats



Kaspersky Lab announced on Thursday Kaspersky Threat Management and Defense solution, which brings together and reinforces the capabilities of Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack, Kaspersky Cybersecurity Services and the company’s latest Kaspersky EDR offering, within a single platform.

The constantly evolving threat landscape requires enterprise IT security teams to operate under the assumption that complex threats already exist within their network. Kaspersky Threat Management and Defense is a comprehensive offering that provides businesses the visibility and threat hunting capabilities they need to reduce overall response times of their corporate networks.

Targeted attacks penetrate organizations’ critical systems and stay unnoticed for years, causing sizable or irreparable damage. Utilizing a comprehensive set of technologies for the detection of previously unknown threats and complex attacks, Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack solution correlates different indicators of compromise in the network that are likely part of a single operation in order to help businesses discover even the most evasive attacks.

Accuracy of detection is achieved through next generation technologies and capabilities, including machine learning threat analysis and correlation algorithms, advanced sandbox technology and network traffic analysis. It is also empowered by the array of metadata available for analysis from the telemetry of endpoint and network sensors, as well as by global threat intelligence from Kaspersky Security Network.

With the new version of Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack, security teams also get a redesigned dashboard showing a detailed overview of the status of periodic checks, the latest network and endpoint events, and incident information to shape the educated action during the incident response (IR) cycle.

Typically, it is an organization’s slow response time to complex cybersecurity incidents that is the most damaging – especially financially. On average, the impact of a targeted attack can cost enterprises $456,000 if the threat is detected immediately, or $1.2 million on average if it remains hidden for more than a week.

With Kaspersky EDR, businesses are enabled to speed up their IR and improve the quality of the cybersecurity incident investigation process. Kaspersky EDR offers increased visibility through the aggregation and visualization of key digital forensics data collected from sensors.

An efficient and timely response is ensured through the automation and remote deployment of the key IR functions, which eliminates the manual work and guarantees an ability to clean up the infected assets remotely, within a required timeframe. Kaspersky EDR ensures cybersecurity teams get complete insight into endpoint activity to understand exactly what is happening within their network and how threats can be mitigated.

Full visibility and accurate detection are only part of the battle. Over time, targeted attack groups will persistently use new tools and techniques. Cybersecurity teams need a trusted partner with the relevant skills and experience to counter complex threats to the business.

That’s why Kaspersky Cybersecurity Services consists of a number of offerings for the proactive assessment and containment of damage (Targeted Attack Discovery), a fully outsourced threat hunting service (Kaspersky Managed Protection), and rapid incident response (Incident Response service).

“Cybercriminals are always looking to exploit vulnerabilities in enterprises and they have extensive financial resources to do so,” said Rob Cataldo, VP of enterprise sales at Kaspersky Lab North America. “Businesses need to make early detection their number one priority and an integrated approach is essential for enterprises to survive in today’s complex threat landscape. To confront these challenges, we’re combining our industry leading solutions with 20 years of experience analyzing advanced threats as a single offering to provide businesses with the resources to mitigate targeted attacks.”

The Kaspersky Threat Management and Defense platform is currently available in North America.
