Kaspersky Lab has been awarded with United States Patent Award for its effective technological approach for Private Security Network.
The technology at the core of the Kaspersky Private Security Network will allow the businesses with specific regulatory requirements and strict data transfer policies to benefit from effective and instant threat detection from the cloud.
“Many companies process classified data or government secrets, or otherwise need to comply with strict rules of protecting confidential information. For such companies, exchanging data between software on workstations and the external cloud is unacceptable; either internal restrictions or regulatory requirements obligate them to use trusted data channels only. Traditional cloud security solution could not provide sufficiently trusted data exchange for companies managing classified data. So, from the viewpoint of regulators any interaction with the cloud is a potential information leak channel, that is, till we introduced the Kaspersky Private Security Network,” said Altaf Halde, Managing Director, South Asia, Kaspersky Lab.
In order to effectively fight the ever-growing number and diversity of modern cyberthreats, security solutions need to maintain a continuous data exchange with a cloud. This allows them to quickly and more accurately analyze new specimens of malicious programs and websites.
“Due to the role cloud computing and big data play in quick and accurate detection, services like Kaspersky Security Network are indispensable in cybersecurity. However, customers operating under strict regulations and data transfer policies are forced to disable cloud services like this, and therefore, cut off a powerful protection layer. We’re pleased to offer a solution that allows our customers to be protected, without compromising on either cybersecurity or compliance,” said Anton Lapushkin, Head of Cloud Infrastructure Development at Kaspersky Lab and one of the authors of the technology.
