Kaspersky Lab has announced the launch of its new Windows business security solution to integrate with its cloud-based threat intelligence database.

Endpoint Security 8 for Windows includes an enhanced anti-virus engine, a system watcher that can undo the damage caused by malicious programs, and integration with Kaspersky Lab's Security Network.

It also offers advanced application control, web filtering, device control and intelligent personal firewall and intrusion detection systems. Kaspersky said it is designed to provide centrally controlled protection for organisations as they introduce the latest technologies to their business operations.

John S. Malatesta, vice-president of B2B field marketing at Kaspersky Lab, said: “Those of us in customer-facing roles have worked closely with Kaspersky Lab's technical experts to ensure that the needs of business were the dominant driver in the creation of this product.

“We are proud to be supporting its launch with a world-wide campaign to raise awareness of the importance of being ready for what's next.”
