Automated IT systems management software specialist Kaseya announced
a set of software tools that helps small and midsize businesses 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

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
