Managed services provider, Kaseya, has made the first step towards integrating security into its existing services, with the release of Kaseya End Point Security (KES).
Through technology from AVG’s anti-malware product line, KES will immediately be available to all desktops, notebooks and file servers currently managed by Kaseya’s IT framework.
Kaseya expects to make a big splash on IT security by being the first to integrate security into the existing managed IT infrastructure, according to Tim Dickinson country manager A/NZ.
“It’s fully integrated, there’s no need for the end user to get involved at all... just switch [it] on and everyone will be protected,” said Dickinson.
“Security is a major concern for anyone involved in the IT management industry and we have seen a substantial demand among our customers,” said Dickinson.
KES aims to provide anti-virus capabilities including, trojan and worm protection and patch management as well as spyware and email protection.
Furthermore, KES will protect portable hardware like laptops and PDAs when disconnected from the corporate network, claimed Dickinson.
“Every computer has an agent so whenever it leaves the network and connects to the internet it is still protected,” he said.
Additionally, information is logged and available for summary and reporting while updates to the system are handled automatically on a scheduled basis.
Kaseya launched an Australian office in Sydney approximately three months ago.
