ABINGDON, England, January 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business enables firms to control and protect the growing range of devices and reduce complexity for over-stretched IT teams Despite forecasts predicting that cyber threats will be the number one risk to businesses within the next two years,latest figures suggest that only 20 per cent of CEOs think it could happen to them, leaving many businesses unprepared and vulnerable to attack. To help companies protect their data, Kaspersky Lab has launched the latest edition of its business security platform, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business. With a range of new and enhanced features, the upgraded solution will enable firms to confidently manage a growing number of devices, implement mobility schemes and boost productivity, while reducing resource demands on their IT teams. Kaspersky Lab's expert security teams detect, analyse and respond to 200,000 new malicious programs every day, up from 70,000 a year ago. This explosive rate of growth places immense demands on over-stretched IT teams struggling to meet business demands for operational efficiency, a growing number of company and privately owned mobile devices in their networks and anytime, anywhere access to corporate information and systems. The loss and theft of devices is becoming a serious threat to the security of business data. For example, at Frankfurt airport, 2700 computer devices and 1100 mobile phones are lost or found every year. Companies must be able to protect and control the data on all devices used for work, even once they have been lost. In addition, the workforce is falling prey to sophisticated and stealthy attacks via email, social media and web browsing, with the number of mobile threats growing particularly fast. Classic anti-virus solutions no longer provide enough protection. In the face of such emerging threats, as well as business pressures to stay agile and efficient, organisations need strong security that does not slow the business down.
