Challenges with using Kaspersky endpoint security products

Heavy Agent

Customers report that Kaspersky’s solution is clunky, takes up lots of resources, and slows down their machines noticeably and significantly.  ThreatDown offers a single, lightweight agent that installs within minutes without a reboot.

No Automated Guidance on Improving Security Posture

Kaspersky does not offer any kind of automated guidance on the current effectiveness of a customer’s deployment or how to improve it. ThreatDown includes Security Advisor to all customers to deliver a security score and automated guidance on enhancing its security posture.

No Recovery of Files After a Ransomware Attack

Although Kaspersky rolls back some malware actions, it does not recover files. Customers are left in a lurch to manually take on that painstaking process. ThreatDown’s 7-day ransomware rollback solution can restore files on workstations up to 7 days after a ransomware attack.
