SECURITY FIRM Kaspersky launched the latest edition of its business security software today, called Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business.

The Russian security company said the software product delivers "a range of new and enhanced features" that will enable firms to "manage a growing number of devices, implement mobility schemes and boost productivity" while reducing resource demands on businesses' IT teams.

However, from what we see of the software product's specifications, it doesn't seem to offer any particularly new or ground breaking features.

There are Mobile Security and Device Management tools (MDM), full-disk, file level and folder level data encryption, advanced endpoint control tools as well as basic malware protection and systems management capabilities, all of which are pretty standard tools in most business security software on the market. However, the updated edition announced today should bring these capabilities in line with recent security threats facing businesses.

Kaspersky said that the release has been designed to ease administrators' lives, and that it comes at a time when classic anti-virus software products "no longer provide enough protection", with organisations needing "strong security that does not slow the business down".

Endpoint Security for Business is available from today in modular and scalable bundles, designed for a range of business needs and budgets. However, Kaspersky said it cannot reveal exact pricing figures, as this is dependent on a number of factors including how long the business buys it for, the number of users and the level of servicing. So for pricing, you'll just have to call Kaspersky. µ
