Kaspersky Secure Remote Workspace

Functional thin client infrastructure
with Cyber Immunity

About the solution

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) increases workflow accessibility and security while also making IT administration more convenient.

Users connect to virtual desktops using thin clients. Remote desktops are limited to only the required apps and services, so it’s much easier to factor in all possible actions that can harm IT systems. The data users work with is stored on the server, not the user’s device, so configuring and replacing thin clients is easier than traditional PCs.

There are also other advantages to VDI that simplify administration and can help reduce project costs. However, thin clients need protection and convenient tools for monitoring and centralized management.

Kaspersky Secure Remote Workspace (KSRW) is a solution for building a managed and functional infrastructure of thin clients based on the Cyber Immune KasperskyOS operating system for secure VDI connection.

The solution enables:

  • Simplified transition to a thin client infrastructure in VDI and terminal access environments and easy integration of devices in the company’s digital infrastructure.
  • Centralized control for simultaneous remote configuration, adding trusted certificates, software updates and quick recovery in case of system failure.
  • Protection of thin clients by default thanks to the innate security properties of KasperskyOS.
Security

Kaspersky Thin Client has Kaspersky Cyber Immunity and does not require additional antivirus protection

Single control center

Convenient local and centralized management of thin clients and data channels

Compatibility

Option to connect to various desktop virtualization systems, including Windows and SKALA-R remote desktops

Easy migration

Security is monitored via the Kaspersky Security Center console which simplifies migration from traditional workstations to thin clients

Threat protection

The Cyber Immune operating system that Kaspersky Secure Remote Workspace runs on provides security by default without the use of antivirus tools. This is important for VDI infrastructures because they cannot provide absolute protection and also have weak points of their own.

Attacks via local operating terminals

One of the most popular types of cyberattacks to gain access to data and vulnerable data channels

System operation disruption

If one VDI component is compromised, all others are threatened

Unauthorized access

If there's no control over devices used to access virtual machines, it's easier for attackers to access the VDI and corporate network

Complexity of administration

Without a convenient centralized management system for thin clients, configuring, updating or auditing them is a time-consuming and risky process.

Products in the solution

Kaspersky Thin Client

Kaspersky Thin Client is a software product installed on the TONK TN1200 hardware platform that provides security by design for thin clients.
Thanks to its Cyber Immune operating system, KasperskyOS ensures the integrity of data transmitted between users, remote desktops, the centralized management server, and connection and logging broker servers, as well as enabling certificate management and secure updates.
The Kaspersky Thin Client interface gives users and administrators access to language and network settings, as well as desktop display options.

Reduce risks

It is impossible to store information on user terminals, download it to unauthorized media or access untrusted resources

Comfortable operation of thin client infrastructures

Settings and OS image updates on thin clients are managed centrally

Features

Basic connectivity

Connection to virtual desktops via Microsoft RDP and to virtual machines within the Skala-R VRM virtualization system are supported. The list of supported connection types is set to be expanded

USB support

Popular tokens (RUTOKEN, SafeNet and JaCarta) and USB drive passthrough are supported

Data security assistance

Security certificate management is supported

It has all the tools and technology required for an easy transition to thin clients and integration with other Kaspersky products.

Unified management console

Centralized monitoring, configuration and delivery of updates to all thin clients. Automatic software deployment, vulnerability assessment, and update installation

Full visibility into the thin-client infrastructure

Centralized management of up to 100,000 nodes. Automatic thin clients registration and setup when connecting to Kaspersky Secure Remote Workspace infrastructure

Features

Convenient notifications

Incident notifications through the channels the administrator prefers: SMS, email, push notifications, etc.

Flexible reporting

Customizable and ready-to-use reports with dynamic filtering and sorting by any data field

Role-based access

Each administrator can only access the tools and data relevant to their work responsibilities

Scalability

If the software configuration is updated within the Kaspersky Thin Client corporate image, the solution performs a centralized automated update on all thin clients

Kaspersky Security Management Suite plugin

The Kaspersky Security Management Suite add-on provides a connection to the Kaspersky Security Center console and enables thin clients to be administered:
• Manage thin client settings on the network using Kaspersky Security Center policies
• Receive all events from devices
• Install and centrally update security certificates on thin clients
• Control license keys in Kaspersky Thin Client
