Small firms shielded from cyber crimes

28 November 2013, 11:55

Nairobi - A day after a government report indicated the country was losing significant revenue through cyber crime, Kaspersky Lab has launched an offering that aims to shield up-and-coming businesses from such malpractices.

Kaspersky Small Office Security (KSOS) is specifically designed for small businesses particularly those with less than 25 employees.

According to the firm, KSOS is expected to keep small businesses ahead of security challenges in the wake of increased incidences of cyber crime in the country.

The firm, which is among the world’s largest software security firms, said business owners had in the past been forced to use consumer-level products that did not adequately meet their business needs.

The enterprise-level products were also said to be burdensome to use and further force users to use features that they do not need.

“This Small Office Solution includes the latest anti-malware technologies in an easy-to-use product that does not require business owners to be IT experts,” the company stated.

The new solution will enable small businesses find valuable resources such as videos and tips for selecting the right solution.

KSOS combines powerful protection from cyber crime with the features small businesses need to compete in the global economy. Among the features found in the new Office Security Solution include Automatic Exploit Prevention, Password Manager, Enhanced Mobile Device Support, Central Management, Data Encryption and File Backup.

This new security solution comes on the back of statistics from the Communications Commission of Kenya and the Information and Communication Technology sector that indicated Kenya loses KES.2 billion (about US$22 million) annually through cyber crime.
