Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac can help your business to:
- Protect two of its most valuable assets – your data and business process continuity

Mac threats can affect your entire business
Compared to other platforms, macOS is relatively secure. However, threats that specifically target Mac computers are on the increase, and cybercriminals often regard Mac computers as a stepping stone onto the broader business network.
All Internet-connected Mac computers are vulnerable to security problems – with no exceptions. They're exposed to many of the same threats that Windows systems suffer from – including ransomware, Trojans and Backdoors – plus threats associated with user error or software vulnerabilities. In heterogeneous networks, unsecured Mac devices can be an entry point for malware that goes on to target the business's Windows and Linux systems.
Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac is designed to address these challenges and provide world-class protection for businesses that rely on Mac.
Protection from today's cyberthreats
Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac provides multi-layered protection from known, unknown and advanced threats.
Our proactive security technologies help to minimize the opportunities for threats to reach your endpoints – and help to identify and block threats that do get onto your Mac computers.
Next Generation security – does more to protect your business
Kaspersky Lab's HuMachine™ approach is powered by a combination of Big Data threat intelligence, machine learning and human expertise. This combination helps to deliver higher levels of protection.
Cloud-assisted threat intelligence – boosts security
Across the world, millions of Kaspersky Lab customers voluntarily provide anonymized threat data – from their devices, to Kaspersky Security Network. This cloud-based threat lab gathers and stores massive volumes of metadata from suspicious files – so it can make rapid, accurate decisions about the safety of files and web addresses, without having to undertake full analysis of their content. This helps to protect businesses from unknown threats.
Attack blocking – helps keep your network secure
Our Network Attack Blocker helps to prevent network threats – including port scanning, denial-of-service attacks and buffer-overruns. It constantly monitors network activities and, if it detects suspicious behavior, Network Attack Blocker will run pre-defined responses.
Web protection and anti-phishing – block harmful scripts & threats
Our HuMachine™ approach helps us to scan incoming & outgoing traffic and block harmful scripts.
Heuristic analysis checks web addresses for characteristics that are typical of phishing websites – to help prevent users inadvertently visiting malicious websites and disclosing valuable business information.
Real-time scanning – delivers early protection
To detect and neutralize threats before they penetrate IT systems and do harm, files are scanned in real time – before they're opened, copied, run and saved.
Security beyond Mac – helps stop threats spreading to other systems
In addition to detecting and blocking threats that target Mac computers, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac also watches out for Windows and Linux threats that could be on one of your Mac computers. Although these threats won't actually harm a Mac… they could go on to harm other machines on your network. That's why Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac helps to ensure that Windows-based and Linux-based threats – that are present on your Mac computers – can be blocked before they spread from your Mac and go on to infect your PCs and Windows or Linux servers.
Low impact on users and systems
Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac provides world-class security that has low impact on resources – and on user productivity.
Efficient performance – boosts speed and battery life
Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac is designed for efficiency… to help minimize usage of key system resources – including CPU, disk and I/O.
Intelligent scanning technology – aids efficiency
Intelligent, proprietary iSwift / iChecker technology eliminates multiple re-scanning of frequently accessed files – significantly reducing the load placed on your systems.
Centralized administration – simplifies security management
While a range of preconfigured security scenarios – and pre-set security policies – help you to roll out security policies more efficiently, you also have the flexibility to adjust parameters to suit specific needs.
All security functions are easily controlled via a single management console – Kaspersky Security Center – that also acts as a central point for managing many other Kaspersky Lab security applications.
Remote deployment – saves time and effort
Administrators can install, manage and remove Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac… remotely.
Central console – simplifies administration tasks
Kaspersky Security Center gives administrators a central management console that makes it easier to configure, deploy, update and manage their security. It helps to simplify the application of group tasks, policies & policy profiles and the generation of reports.
Built-in encryption management – keeps precious data safe
Administrators can use the Kaspersky Security Center console to manage data encryption technologies for multiple platforms, including FileVault 2 for Mac.
Updating – gives you a choice of manual or automatic updates
The machine learning mathematical models and the application modules can be updated automatically – according to a set schedule – or updated on demand. System administrators can set up one of their servers to act as the update source for other endpoints. This helps to reduce the business's Internet traffic and also provides a mechanism for updating endpoints that are not directly connected to the Internet.
