Kaspersky Introduces Endpoint Security Cloud in Two Tiers
Kaspersky has revamped its Endpoint Security Cloud to now offer two versions, Cloud and Cloud Plus. Geared towards small and medium-sized enterprises, this two-tiered product enables organizations the flexibility to choose the level of protection that suits their organization’s requirements.
- Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud
The Cloud version includes the classic set of cybersecurity technologies, such as file, web, and mail protection; firewall; network attack blocker; behavior detection; and exploit prevention. Along with web threats, the product now helps to prevent malicious programs from exploiting vulnerabilities in outdated software. This is possible through vulnerability assessment functionality that reviews applications installed on corporate devices and notifies IT administrators about available patches.
- Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Plus
Cloud Plus adds web and device controls, as well as patch and encryption management. Patch management functionality allows administrators to automate the delivery of updates for vulnerable applications. Encryption management reinforces protection of sensitive business data, ensuring data stored on remotely encrypted employees’ devices is inaccessible for those without the correct permissions – even if a device is lost or stolen.

Working remotely is increasingly common for workforces, and with that comes a vulnerable attack surface that requires robust endpoint protection to secure data. Each organization has a different risk tolerance level and security and business strategy; therefore, flexible technologies make ideal solutions. In moving its endpoint protection platform toward a more flexible model, Kaspersky is responding to the needs of organizations, which is never a bad idea.

An enterprise application selection or implementation has most likely been heavily impacted by COVID-19. Do not hit the brakes; stopping and restarting projects increases the risk of failure. Slow down or speed up? Which is the right strategy for your organization?
The math did not add up for SAP to sunset license support for legacy ECC/Business Suite 7 clients, as we predicted. I’ve fielded numerous calls asking, “Will SAP hold firm on its 2025 end-of-support date?" We finally have SAP’s answer: a resounding “NO.”
SAP customers seeking to move to S/4HANA must navigate four distinct license models, each tied to a separate deployment model (perpetual license, subscription via HEC, S/4HANA Cloud Single-Tenant, or S/4HANA Public Cloud). This note explores the license characteristics and commercial options available when choosing to procure perpetual licenses for S/4HANA.
SAP’s native-cloud play through S/4HANA dangled the hopes of a simplified license structure to SAP customers. Instead, SAP customers now must navigate four distinct license models, each tied to a separate deployment model.
SAP S/4HANA and HANA Licensing Series – Part IV: ECC End-of-Support Date in 2025 Looms Large for CIOs
SAP continues to claim robust adoption of S/4HANA while cajoling customers to migrate. Should ECC customers cave into the demands and promises of S/4HANA? Or should they stay the course and call SAP’s bluff on the looming end-of-support date?
Oracle reported slightly better-than-expected Q2 FY20 results, but despite substantial revenue numbers and high growth areas such as Oracle Cloud, Fusion ERP, and Autonomous Database, it’s unclear when these market segments will accelerate revenue growth materially.
Infor doubles down on better implementations with Signavio’s process mining and intelligence technology. The partnership will leverage the Signavio web-based business process modeling and intelligence tool to further accelerate the decision-making process.
Artificial intelligence continues to fuel the arms race among ERP vendors. Earlier this year, Oracle announced that it has extended the AI (machine learning, to be more precise) capabilities within the ERP Cloud and EPM Cloud products.
