Systems management software vendor Kaseya's new software tools for SMB's feature anti-virus, anti-malware, network discovery, network monitoring and backup services.

Automated IT systems management software specialist Kaseya announced a set of software tools that helps small to medium-size businesses (SMBs) secure, manage and protect their networks. The tools are designed to integrate with the Kaseya framework and provide IT department and service provider customers with tighter security, better network management and additional data backup options.

Available through cloud or on-premises delivery, the new modules include anti-virus, anti-malware, network discovery, network monitoring, online backup, and Kaseya backup. With the company’s updated network discovery and network monitoring, administrators can view all the details of their network through a single integrated management console.

Kaseya Antivirus (KAV) for Windows workstations is powered by Kaspersky Labs anti-virus engine, while the company’s Antimalware (KAM) tool is powered by Malwarebytes. The Network Discovery (KND) application finds all Internet Protocol (IP) based devices connected and interconnected to the network(s) and provides for automated agent deployment for instant management of Windows, Mac and Linux devices, and Network Monitoring (KNM) utilizes SNMP to provide a graphical view of CPU, RAM, disk and network interface data.

The company’s Online Backup (KOB) application provides a multi-platform (Windows and Mac OS X) and cloud-based folder and file backup service based on incremental and point in time changes, while Kaseya Backup protects full disk images as well as selected files to local data stores. It includes off-site data replication supporting rapid disaster recovery. The Kaseya 6.1 Framework and KAV, KAM, KND and KNM are available now. KOB and Kaseya Backup will be available in the first quarter of 2011, according to a company release.
