The Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android app ensures protection of mobile devices against web threats, viruses, and other programs that pose threats.

The Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android app includes the following components:

  • Anti-Virus. This component detects and neutralizes threats on your device by using the Anti-Virus databases and the Kaspersky Security Network cloud service. Anti-Virus includes the following components:
    • Protection. It detects threats in open files, scans new apps, and prevents device infection in real time.
    • Scan. It is started on demand for the entire file system, only for installed apps, or a selected file or folder.
    • Update. It allows you to download new Anti-Virus databases for the application.
  • Anti-Theft. This component protects information on the device against unauthorized access in case the device is lost or stolen. This component lets you send the following commands to the device:
    • Locate. Get the coordinates of the device's location.
    • Alarm. Make the device sound a loud alarm.
    • Wipe. Erase corporate data to protect sensitive company information.
  • Web Protection. This component blocks malicious websites designed to spread malicious code. Web Protection also blocks fake (phishing) websites designed to steal confidential data of the user (for example, passwords for online banking or e-money systems) and access the user's financial info. Web Protection scans websites before you open them, by using the Kaspersky Security Network cloud service. After scanning, Web Protection allows trustworthy websites to load and blocks malicious websites. Web Protection also supports website filtering by categories defined in the Kaspersky Security Network cloud service. This allows the administrator to restrict user access to certain categories of web pages (for example, web pages from the "Gambling, lotteries, sweepstakes" or "Internet communication" categories).
  • App Control. This component lets you install recommended and required apps to your device via a direct link to the distribution package or a link to Google Play. App Control lets you remove blocked apps that violate corporate security requirements.
  • Compliance control. This component allows you to check managed devices for compliance with the corporate security requirements and impose restrictions on certain functions of non-compliant devices.

You can configure the components of the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android app in Kaspersky Security Center Web Console and Cloud Console by defining the settings of group policies.
