Dear Friends!

Let us kindly inform you that, Kaspersky Lab invites everyone to participate in the beta testing of Kaspersky Security for Virtualization Light Agent 5.1 (beta), during which you will be able to get acquainted with many improvements and new product features.

Your feedback and suggestions on test results are very important to us , and we will do our best to accommodate them and make the necessary changes to the final versions of products.

To take part in testing, you need to send an e-mail to ksv-beta@kaspersky.com with contact information and a description of the test infrastructure, in response to which links for downloading distributions, a license and accompanying materials will be sent to you.

Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1 Light Agent offers the following new features:

·         There is now support for new types of guest operating systems (Linux and Windows).

·         There is now support for a Skala-R hypervisor.

·         The Mail Anti-Virus component can now be installed on virtual machines running a Microsoft Windows server operating system.

·         The System Watcher component can now be installed on virtual machines running a Microsoft Windows server operating system.

·         The System Watcher component now provides protection of shared folders against external encryption.

·         There is now the capability to grant user accounts the permissions to execute certain actions within the functional scopes of Kaspersky Security.

·         There is now support for security tags (NSX Security Tags), which Kaspersky Security can assign to a protected virtual machine within an infrastructure managed by a VMware vCenter Server and VMware NSX Manager.

·         There is now the capability for remote installation of Light Agent for Linux.

·         You can now scan encrypted connections that are established using the SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, or TLS 1.2 protocols.

·         Light Agent for Linux scan tasks now include scanning boot sectors, system memory, and startup objects.

·         The functionality of the Kaspersky Security Components Installation Wizard has been expanded. Now it contains the files necessary for installing Light Agent for Windows and Light Agent for Linux, and lets you download SVM images containing the Protection Server component from the Kaspersky Lab website. In addition, during installation of the Kaspersky Security administration plug-ins and Integration Server, the Wizard automatically creates installation packages for remote installation of Light Agent for Windows and Light Agent for Linux in Kaspersky Security Center.

·         There is now the capability to perform initial configuration of new SVMs and reconfiguration of previously deployed SVMs through the provided API manually or by using automation tools. This lets you deploy and configure SVMs without having to use the SVM Management Wizard that is started from the Integration Server Console.

·         You can now verify the certificate or key fingerprint of a hypervisor or virtual infrastructure administration server before connecting the Integration Server and SVM Management Wizard to the virtual infrastructure.

·         You can now check the integrity of application components by using the Light Agent for Windows integrity check task and scripts for Light Agent for Linux and the Protection Server.

·         The mechanism for discovering and selecting the SVM used by Light Agents was refined to optimize operation of the application in large infrastructures.

Best Regards,

KL Technical Support.
