Kaspersky Lab has expanded its virtualization software portfolio to include hybrid cloud security. The company does this with Kaspersky Hybrid Cloud Security, which is suitable for business environments where both Microsoft Azure and AWS cloud platforms are used.

“With our investment in better security of public cloud platforms, organizations have the opportunity to responsibly adopt a cloud-native strategy. Applications and data are developed from the outset on the basis of cloud technology from, for example, AWS and Microsoft Azure. Working from the public cloud is fully responsible”, says Harco Enting, General Manager of Kaspersky Lab Benelux.

The new security solution must protect applications and data in physical, virtual and cloud workloads. Everything that is landed on Azure and AWS by companies can be secured thanks to the API-based integration with the two platforms. The environments are protected against cyber threats thanks to an integrated control, system hardening protection of the workload and self-learning security systems.

Kaspersky Hybrid Cloud Security also offers one console in the cloud. IT security teams thus maintain full visibility and control over data access rights, whether they are stored on-premise or in the public cloud. As a result, different security methods of all virtual infrastructures are integrated and a faster and more adequate response to cyber threats can be achieved.

The console allows IT security officers to control who has access to corporate data, regardless of where the data is available. It is also possible to set up security notifications from one location.

Machine learning

Kaspersky Hybrid Cloud Security’s various layers of protection, including anti-ransomware and behavioral detection, also have the new threat intelligence at their fingertips. In addition, the platform offers protection based on machine learning. Security systems block and intercept potential threats before they can hit corporate data and systems.

The platform also includes an exploitation prevention, vulnerability assessment and automatic patch management. Weaknesses in the infrastructure of the cloud must therefore be immediately identified and, where necessary, prevented.
