eScan launches Total Security Suite and Internet Security Suite for Businesses, with PBAE technology to provide protection from ransomware

Johannesburg, 17 Nov 2016

eScan, one of the leading anti-virus and cyber security solution providers, now brings you its latest security solutions: eScan Total Security Suite for Business and eScan Internet Security Suite for Business for small to corporate segments. These products are designed and developed with thorough research and feedback from decision-makers across these business segments.

These products are designed keeping in mind the latest evolving cyber threats such as ransomware, adware, key-loggers, and other malicious programs. The eScan Total Security Suite and eScan Internet Security Suite for Business security solutions come with an advanced secure Web interface with summarised dashboard.

The Web interface uses SSL technology to encrypt all communications. The dashboard provides an easy-to-view, summarised report for IT administrators. It shows the status of all managed endpoints in a network in graphical format, such as deployment status, protection status, as well as protection statistics.

The enhanced Device Control module protects the endpoints from data theft and security threats from USB or FireWire-based portable devices. The new Application control feature helps IT administrators block unwanted applications from running on the endpoints. This feature, furthermore, helps to determine which applications and portable devices are allowed or blocked in the network.

In addition to the above, eScan Total Security Suite and eScan Internet Security Suite for Business also includes features such as policy templates, customised client set-up and policy criteria. To make policy deployment easy, policy templates help administrators to create and deploy the same policies in network groups.

Customised client set-up, along with policy templates, allow administrators to implement group policies to the endpoints automatically. The administrator has an option to deploy group policies/criteria, either predefined or customised templates, at endpoints by using the management console or through offline modes for endpoints that are not in the network.

The Web Protection feature helps to blacklist or white-list Web sites to safeguard them from malicious attacks. The products also provide a single view SIEM (security incidents and event management) report to administrators to manage and control the endpoints. This provides reports of the managed endpoints, eg, startup, shutdown, logon, and log off, remote session connects, disconnects, etc. With this report, the administrator can trace the user logon and logoff activity, along with remote sessions that took place on all managed computers.

Mornay Viljoen, CEO and Managing Director of eScan South Africa, said: "These products have been developed keeping in mind the growing IT dependence of businesses and lack of skilled IT personnel to manage the growing cyber threats to networks. Therefore, the products have been designed for ease of deployment and to provide robust network security resulting from our in-depth research into ever evolving cyber threats (such as ransomware) targeting small businesses to corporates, and feedback from valued customers globally."
