Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security

Windows embedded systems are an increasingly popular target for cybercriminals. These devices tend to operate inside the corporate network, are geographically scattered and usually handle critical data, often working with credit and debit cards. End-of-life Windows XP is still a standard for many of these systems, as is low-end hardware.

Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security is specifically designed to protect these systems against attacks targeting their contents and exploiting their limitations.

  • Application and Device Controls

    The basis of effective protection for embedded systems, where everything (apps drivers, libraries, USB drives) not explicitly permitted is blocked.

  • Anti-Malware and Memory Protection

    Proven protection from the industry’s leading antivirus engine, capable of detecting even the most aggressive attacks.

  • File Integrity and Log Audit

    Monitors changes to critical files, keeping regulatory compliance requirements in mind.

  • Network Threat Protection

    Monitors network activities and prevents network threats – including port scanning, denial-of-service attacks and buffer-overruns.

Suitable For

This solution is particularly well suited to addressing the security requirements, concerns and constraints of these enterprise sectors:

In Use

  • Securing Embedded Systems

    Embedded systems present specific and unique security concerns. They are generally geographically scattered, they can be challenging to manage and they are rarely updated. Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security mitigates the security risks inherent in embedded systems. It has been specifically designed for organizations operating ATM and PoS systems and the threat environment they operate in. It protects the attack surfaces unique to these architectures, reflecting their unique functionality and OS, channel and hardware requirements.

  • Weak systems also need protection

    Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security has been built specifically to operate effectively even on low-end hardware (from 256MB of RAM, and Pentium III CPU) and old software (from Windows XP), with no risk of systems overload. Weak communication channels (from as low as 56kbps) are also not a problem, even when a mobile modem is the only communications option and works on 2G only due to a poor signal.

  • Compliance

    The unique, comprehensive set of protection components in Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security – anti-malware, application and device control, firewall management, File Integrity Monitoring and log Audit – identifies and blocks malicious actions against your system, and detects various indicators of a security breach. This helps our customers to meet the compliance requirements of regulations such as PCI/DSS, SWIFT, etc.
