QUICK READ

  • Strengths:

    Designed for the small to medium business model, this solution delivers centralized management and protects three key areas across the network.

  • Weaknesses:

    Nothing.

  • Verdict:

    A small business anti-virus solution with the feel of corporate protection. Easy to install and deploy and very effective too.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus supports a number of environments, which include Linux, Unix (Free­ BSD, BSDi, OpenBSD, Solaris), Novell NetWare, MS Exchange, Lotus Notes, Domino, Sendmail, Qmail, Exim, Postfix and all the Windows versions.

This allows you to cover most system requirements, and it is available in a small to medium business solution, not just the usual corporate model.

The solution consists of three main modules to protect your network from virus attack. These modules cover workstations, file servers and email systems, to enable a blanket of anti-virus protection even in the smaller office environment.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus also offers its users a 24/7 technical help line that can be contacted by telephone or email, whichever you prefer, and it is delivered in both English and Russian for all you bilingual IT security managers.

As you'd expect from a solution delivering corporate anti-virus, it is possible to have centralized deployment, which makes the administrator's job easier and your anti-virus management faster and protection more immediate. Installation is accomplished with one CD and is a simple process. Once accomplished you can get the most recent updates to ensure you start on the right foot.

During our rigorous tests Kaspersky Anti-Virus provided some very promising results with a perfect 100 percent return in both Tests 1 and 2.

Against the polymorphic barrage it again gave a very good account of itself, to present another 100 percent, and it sailed through the second division collection with no trouble whatsoever.

Our macro collection made no impact on this solution, so that it remained on par with a few of the other anti-virus products.

Our speed test proved no real challenge and in 2 seconds it scanned the designated directory, providing the quickest scan time, which this solution shared with a number of other solutions in this anti-virus test.

Our team was suitably impressed with the final conclusions and deemed Kaspersky AntiVirus a great SME solution, offering corporate protection.
