Kaspersky today unveils the next version of Kaspersky Web Traffic Security, which now offers enhanced protection capabilities though integration with Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack to improve early detection of sophisticated web threats. The product is now available in two deployment options, as a standalone application and a software appliance, to meet broader customer needs.
According to Kaspersky researchers, 717 million web attacks were revealed in the second quarter of this year. The attacks contain various kinds of malware including generic adware to ransomware and advanced threats that reach corporate networks through phishing, social engineering or unreliable web resource surfing.
Web gateway protection allows companies to block massive amounts of web threats before they reach endpoints. This decreases the number of alerts on endpoints that interrupt users and administrators, as well as ensures protection of devices which don’t have endpoint security product installed or updated.
To make the deployment and use of the product effective for companies with different needs, Kaspersky now offers two options: as a software appliance or a standalone application.
The protection capabilities of Kaspersky Web Traffic Security are now empowered by two-way API-based integration with Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack, which allows customers of both solutions to achieve earlier attack detection and automated responses to advanced web threats. Suspicious files are automatically sent to Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack for analysis. The system reveals the nature and malicious activity that the advanced threat generates, including files, transmission of commands, payloads and stolen data, and blocks them at the early attack stage.

“Different deployment scenarios allow companies to choose the best way to secure corporate web traffic, depending on available resources or IT network architecture,” said Sergey Martsynkyan, head of B2B product marketing at Kaspersky. “It also brings new usage scenarios to our partners. For example, the new format of the all-in-one appliance can be used by managed service providers to add web traffic security to their portfolio. Thanks to the application’s ease of deployment, scalability and multitenancy, they can provide web traffic security as a service for additional protection to ever growing number of customers, without the hassle.”
Kaspersky Web Traffic Security is available in both deployment options as part of Kaspersky Security for Internet Gateway and Kaspersky Total Security for Business. More information about the application can be found on the product page.
