Anyone here use Kaspersky Endpoint Security (KES10)?



  • Does anyone here use this software? Do you have any ongoing issue with Self-Defense or VAPM?



  • We don't use it, sorry.



  • I try not to !
    I run the admin kit or whatever they call it these days, and V10 of the network agent, but still have all the clients on 6.4 mp3.
    8 was unusable, and 10 is a dog.... far too much resource usage... during scans our quad core systems are unusable, and my dual quad core proccessor T5400 slows to a crawl with anything more than a browser open. I keep hoping they will fix the scans, but Kaspersky just say to just schedule the scans during the night so they don't interrupt peoples work..... great suggestion for a 24/7 operation where a lot of he shop floor stations are only P4s.....



  • ouch. We have not fared much better. We have had to disable about 70% of their features because they did not perform as advertised and their support is pretty bad. Most of the time they don't even read your initial or follow-up messages, and paste back cookie cutter responses. I finally got in touch with someone higher up, but the best they could come up with is to deploy the new version to see IF it fixed our issues. Of course it hasn't, so now I have to resubmit new cases for everything. I used to love this company as a great AV, and their detection rates have not let us down yet, but they have no business being in a Managed Environment. Their Self-Defense Module blocks their own processes! And exclusions do not always work.

    I really don't like Symantec due to many, many past experiences of their bloated software slowing systems to a crawl. I used SEPM at a previous company and was amazed at how easy it was to manage everything, and how everything actually WORKED as advertised. There are always small hiccups with new software, but with Kaspersky I have found a new definition for pain in the arse.



  • We always suggest Webroot or VIPER.



  • @Minion-Queen Its true .We are currently using the trial of ( Webroot) ,Just last week we also Evaluated Vipre. And waiting for Management Decision. Hopefully soon they will decide.

    How did the Viper Eval go?

    It is fine, I guess it resolve our problem. Webroot is pretty good too.
