Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Linux released

    A public beta version of Kaspersky for Linux file servers has been released:

    "Public" means that the antivirus and test key can be downloaded for free from the official ftp. “Beta version” means that the product is still in beta testing, and impressions of use can be sent to the forum, mail linuxfs@kaspersky.com, to me in private or in comments.

    official press release:
    Kaspersky Lab, a leading manufacturer of systems for protection against malware and unwanted software, hacker attacks and spam, announces the release of a beta version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Linux File Server.

    Malicious programs can pass through Linux file servers that target other components of a heterogeneous network, such as workstations running Microsoft Windows. In addition, despite the recognized reliability, Linux operating systems also need protection, because every year the number of malicious programs created for these systems is growing steadily.

    Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Linux File Server is an anti-virus solution for protecting most types of file servers running Linux. This product replaced two other applications of the company - Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5.7 for Linux File Server and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5.5 for Samba Server, combining their functionality, which was supplemented by a number of new features.

    The architecture of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Linux File Server allows multi-level protection of file servers in modern Linux and heterogeneous networks simultaneously at the level of the entire file system and at the Samba server level.

    The product has significantly expanded the ability to administer the application. Firstly, a new web interface was implemented - Kaspersky Web Management Console, which allows you to fully manage the product from a browser on any computer. Secondly, in the final release of the application, support for all centralized administration capabilities through Kaspersky Administration Kit will be integrated.

    Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Linux File Server 6.0 supports all new 32-bit and 64-bit distributions of Linux operating systems, such as Red Hat, Fedora, SUSE, openSUSE, Debian GNU and Ubuntu. Compared to previous versions, support for the Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 platform and Novell NSS file system has also been added. This will make it easy for Novell Netware users to upgrade to a new operating system.

    Kaspersky Lab invites you to participate in beta testing of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Linux File Server. Reviews are accepted at linuxfs@kaspersky.com in free form, but they must necessarily include two points - opinions on the product itself and on the use of Kaspersky Web Management Console.
