I think Kaspersky is well suited for large and small companies. Larger companies can take advantage of the KSC (Kaspersky Security Center) servers to help manage a large network. The KSC has many good features to help monitor the health of the organization. It does a good job with updating and deploying remotely. It has inventory features, and can even deploy non-Kaspersky software packages uploaded to the center. KSC can become a source of good information about [your] network that can be seen at a glance. IT departments are normally smaller than they need to be. KSC helps with larger and smaller companies because of this. A small company would appreciate the amount of information and management that can be done through KSC without needing extra help. If the company is small enough that they don't have servers on-site, there is a cloud version. I have not used that to know how it differs from the local KSC.

Well-Suited Scenarios:Small to Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs): Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud is well-suited for SMBs with limited IT resources. Its cloud-based management simplifies deployment and ongoing security administration, allowing smaller businesses to benefit from enterprise-grade protection without the complexity.Distributed Workforces: In scenarios where employees work remotely or across multiple locations, the cloud-based nature of Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud is advantageous. It enables centralized management of security policies, ensuring consistent protection for all endpoints regardless of their physical location.Proactive Threat Detection: Organizations that prioritize proactive threat detection and response benefit from Kaspersky's advanced capabilities. The endpoint detection and response (EDR) features help identify and mitigate potential threats in real-time, crucial for industries handling sensitive data.Less Appropriate Scenarios:Highly Regulated Industries with Specific Compliance Requirements: In industries with stringent compliance regulations, organizations may require specialized solutions that offer more granular control and reporting features tailored to specific compliance standards. Kaspersky may need to enhance customization options to cater to these specific needs.Resource-Constrained Environments: While Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud is generally efficient, organizations with extremely resource-constrained environments, such as older hardware or limited bandwidth, might find the solution demanding in terms of system resources.

Pros
Kaspersky Lab
  • The Security Center is laid out very well and makes it easy to install and manage the client endpoint protection on servers and workstations.
  • The way security policies are defined and managed is very easy to understand.
  • The client programs seem to be lighter and smaller on the client systems than others I have used in the past. Using fewer resources is always an advantage.

  • Excellent Performance - KES has been I can say a ghost on my company and my clients because of it's performance, since is light weight when processing and protecting.
  • Excellent Administration of Cloud Console - It's easy to navigate thru the KES Cloud Console having a quick help that orientates for any easy doubt to clear out, if needed to escalate I can always setup a Ticket and get a fast response.

Cons
Kaspersky Lab
  • The PC imaging tools are difficult to set up and use
  • Device Encryption tools are getting better, but are difficult to manage.
  • The policies are powerful, but could be broken up. More help can be provided in what the policy element does within the policy setup

  • Though the Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud provides security from all the types of Cyber threat but it will be great to have the protection from the attacks which occurs from inside of an organization.
  • As Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud provides the Cyber security training to it's users in only Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Pro which should be included in it's all versions so that the users will be aware of the Cyber threats.
  • The feature of root cause analysis is a great feature of Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud but I feel there is a scope for improvement in it.

The product is stable and accurate in detecting security threats. There are very few or no false positives in detecting security threats or unusual behavior and has very sharp heuristics. The product does the job very well including saving us money in getting 3rd party patch management tools as the business is already using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager which is Microsoft product specific and the product patches these third party products e.g Adobe Flash Player

We have been using Kaspersky Endpoint Security products for several years and the jump to the console cloud has been very comfortable for us since we do not have to dedicate a server to the Kaspersky Endpoint Security console but rather the console is in the cloud so that we save the server and its financial amount, electrical expense, cost of its housing in the CPD.

It allows us to roll out endpoint protection quickly from a cloud interface to hundreds of users within seconds and keep those devices secure. From deployment of BitLocker and keeping track of the keys from the interface has saves many users from stolen laptops and devices since we used Kaspersky as our main device protection.

Reliability and Availability

I've used the on-premise server. I've only experienced one time that we couldn't open the console, and that was a server issue. It seems to be a dependable solution. It's there, and it's stable.

Kaspersky is a market leader company, so I had no doubt that I could trust their cloud services availability. As of now, I haven't experienced any downtime on their cloud portal or any issue in the agent itself. I would recommend it in terms of reliability.

Performance
Kaspersky Lab
Users don't notice any slowdown with the antivirus running on their systems. There have been issues when the systems have missed a scheduled scan, and it was checked to run at [a] first available time, they will start a full scan at startup. This has caused some lag. Normally there are also some issues with the workstation, but it is something to note.

We have had no major issues with Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud. The product has a very low overhead. There have been issues in the past where web pages have been slow to load, as they are being processed by the Kaspersky Security Network. That said, when the issue was reported to technical support, they were quick to assess and provide a viable work around.

Support Rating

I give the maximum grade because we have no complaints; we never had any failure, serious error, and serious threat to the company. All of its features work very well. The great advantage of having a product supported by an industry-leading security company is that regularly updated security protocols will protect the system against all emerging threats.

Make sure to provide awareness campaigns on changes that will be implemented and WHY the business is doing it and the benefits reaped. Benefits reaped is very important for the justification of why things have to change and emphasizing the importance of security. This will reduce user disgruntlement and total bitterness on use of their workstation or laptop

The implementation of this product is easy, the console is mounted and from it the client is distributed to the rest of the computers. In this way, the Kaspersky Endpoint Security client is installed on all the computers in the company's IT park and its servers.The installation of clients requires that they have visibility with the console that is in the cloud.

Kaspersky is a leader in endpoint protection, but its ties to potential adversaries are unsettling. Kaspersky has a great threat research team and quickly identifies malicious software and its signature. Its web-based protection is also top notch. This is a great product but as with everything has its place.

The manufacturer Kaspersky was very flexible with the terms of the contract for the Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud product since it has prices by number of licenses, offering discounts for the volume of licenses to be contracted as well as for the duration of the contract. They show a very empathetic attitude with the client, trying to adapt to what the client needs.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud is a distributed product, you connect to the console and the client is installed on the computers and servers and the only configuration it needs is the console address. Then they connect and the console downloads the virus definitions and defined policies.There are no client limitations, you can even have multiple consoles if you want to have "separate" clients.
