Security vendor Kapersky Lab has announced an update to its security offering for small businesses, claiming to offer comprehensive protection for Windows-based file servers and workstations.

Kapersky Small Office Security now includes an anti-virus engine with improved threat detection, a heuristic analyser to block new malware as it emerges, and a scanning system to check instant messages for malicious code and links, said the firm.

The software is compatible with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, and default settings have been created with small businesses in mind to minimise the need for customisation. Installation does not require an IT specialist, according to Kaspersky.

"Small Office Security has been specially developed to ensure that any small business's data remains protected," said Eugene Kaspersky, chief executive of Kaspersky Lab.

"The solution provides effective protection against computer threats, is extremely resource-efficient and won't distract the employee from their main activities."

In related news, Kapersky's latest quarterly threat report found that phishing emails accounted for 57 per cent of all email, and that PayPal, eBay, HSBC and Facebook are the top sites targeted.
