MDM: Mobile Discipline Mastery.


BYOD: four letters which in several years have turned upside down the notions of the organization of labor, motivation, corporate ethics, productivity, communications, leisure, and a lot more besides… and not forgetting of course one more notion – that of security. For large organizations, the number of connected personal devices can reach the tens of thousands. So how is it possible to bring some mobile discipline mastery to them all – to conduct a symphony that’s pleasant to the ear of the administrators given the awful initial cacophony made by all those different, uncontrollable devices? How do you protect, monitor, and manage this pasticcio? Enter MDM – Mobile Device Management …

Kaspersky Lab Developing Its Own Operating System? We Confirm the Rumors, and End the Speculation!

In Denial about Deny All?


So sure, the underground has changed; however, the security paradigm, alas, remains the same: the majority of companies continue to apply technologies designed for mass epidemics – i.e., outdated protection – to tackle modern-day threats. As a result, in the fight against malware companies maintain mostly reactive, defensive positions, and thus are always one step behind the attackers. Such a state of affairs becomes even more paradoxical when you discover that in today’s arsenals of the security industry there do exist sufficient alternative concepts of protection built into products – concepts able to tackle new unknown threats head-on. I’ll tell you about one such concept today …

Kaspersky (Server) Anti-Spam: No Longer the Underdog; More Top Dog.


Just recently the results of Virus Bulletin’s VBSpam testing were released in which our new Kaspersky Linux Mail Security (KLMS) – unexpectedly for our competitors but quite expectedly for us – was among the winners – actually second – with an outstanding result of a 99.93% spam catch rate and 0.01% false positives. “Who wants to come second?” might come the refrain from those used to nothing but first place for KL. But in answer I’d say, “I do!” Here’s why…
