Kaspersky Labs: New Generation of Ultimate PC Protection; for Home


Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content and threat management solutions today announced a new version of its flagship product for at-home PC protection — Kaspersky PURE 2.0 Total Security. Using Kaspersky Lab’s award-winning anti-malware protection and an array of additional security tools, Kaspersky PURE 2.0 Total Security is the easiest way to keep multiple PCs secure, irreplaceable digital assets protected, and children safe and responsible online.

Central Home PC Management

Ideal for households with multiple computers, including families with children, Kaspersky PURE uses Home Network Management to easily protect, manage and monitor every PC in the household from a single machine.

From one PC, you can:

— Run all scans, updates, and backup tasks on every PC in the house automatically or on-demand

— Fix security issues without getting up from your desk

— Manage parental controls from anywhere in the house, so your kids are protected even when they’re out of view

— Conveniently update the Kaspersky PURE licenses throughout your home

Total Package of Security Tools

Kaspersky PURE also includes everything you need to secure your online identity and protect your irreplaceable digital property. When you install Kaspersky PURE, our extra layers of security mean you can say good-bye to overpriced and inefficient niche products.

This is great work. I am demoing the product now and will post my review shortly. Very excited about how this will shape the home and small business central management landscape. Will vendors pile on?

NetGear: Boosts SMB Network Security


Traditional firewall network security devices filter data packets looking to weed out malicious traffic. In the modern era of Web threats, that’s not usually enough, which is why networking vendor Netgear is updating its lineup of ProSecure networking appliances with a new software update that helps to control application usage across the network.

The new ProSecure 3.0 firmware provides application firewall capabilities for small organizations with as few as five users.

“The challenge today with small-and-medium-sized business is that they are using social media applications but they don’t really have the expertise to understand how to secure those applications,” Henry Fan, senior product manager at NetGear, told InternetNews.com.

It’s no longer possible for businesses to simply block social networking sites in general, as there often are legitimate business-use cases for them. There are, however, plenty of non-legitimate use cases for social networking sites and applications as well. Knowing the difference between which sites are useful and productive for employees and which ones waste time is a challenge that NetGear hopes to help solve.

For example, Facebook has a lot of good, practical business-use cases for marketing and networking. On the other hand there are other applications on Facebook — like Farmville — that waste both time and bandwidth for a small business.
