How businesses can protect themselves against web threats

Did you know that almost a third of network users were attacked by web threats in previous years?

Did you also know that risky online behaviour of employees remains a challenge for half of businesses?

If you weren’t aware before, it’s time to think again.

Surely, employees can put corporate networks and sensitive data at risk. Their doing so is either by chance or by design. While employees might be the unknowing gatekeepers of your organisation’s network safety, the onus is on businesses to educate their staff and implement strict security policies.

Even so, education might not be enough. Since attacks have become more malicious and sophisticted, one of the key techniques used to penetrate businesses is social engineering. Attackers manipulate employees into performing dangerous actions or giving out personal information.

Business Solution for Web Threats

However, this is not enough. Endpoint protection, such as Kaspersky Web Traffic Security, provides businesses with a solid first line of defence. The added risk-mitigation layer stops threats at the point of attempted attack. Hence the attacker never once has the opportunity to reach employee endpoints. Such software reinforces web gateways to protect employees from web-based attacks of all sorts. Moreover, the solution is able to reduce risks and decrease IT support overheads.

As a powerful multi-layered machine learning based anti-malware engine, the Kaspersky Web Traffic Security weans the probability of hazardous actions. Actions like clicking on phishing links and opening untrusted web pages become unlikely with the renewed anti-phishing engine, in addition to the deep learning-based technologies. By filtering ingoing and outgoing content, the risk of infection and data leakage is quickly lowered. Moreover, the application’s web control feature assists in the managing of categories of web resources, limiting its access to only authorised employees.

Around the clock, the solution uses global threat intelligence from the cloud to improve attack detection rates. The cloud contains reputation data about files, URLs and IP addresses from Kaspersky Security Network and unique data acquired during expert research.

In terms of social engineering, Kaspersky Web Traffic Security can significantly reduce the risk and minimise pressure from IT support staff.

Serget Martsynkyan, Head of B2B Product Marketing, Kaspersky Lab, commented, “The application will boost business defenses, providing a proven Next Generation cybersecurity engine, with arguably the lowest false positive rates and highest detection rates in the industry – governing internet use via a single application point.”

Better Business with Less Threats

Users of Kaspersky Web Traffic Security can also enjoy enhanced management capabilities.

For an improved user experience, a graphic user interface can be used for event-centric gateway security management and monitoring.

Secondly, a SIEM integration is present to add gateway security context to the infrastructure-wide picture of security events.

To tackle heavier loads and work easier with distributed infrastructure, multi-node management is available.

Additionally, a special multitenancy mode for MSPs and diversified companies is available. This allows them to assign dedicated workspaces for different customers or projects/offices and manage them separately.

Finally, role-based access control allowing the management of access levels for security administrators who have different responsibilities is possible.

The fear of an employee who probably has poor IT literacy or cyber hygiene is ameliorated with this endpoint protection. No more cases of curiosity killed the cat.

Kaspersky Web Traffic Security is a part of Kaspersky Internet Gateway Security. More information about the application can be found here.
