For example, a CAL assigned to a user, allows only that user to access the server via any device. Likewise, if a DAL is assigned to particular device, then any authenticated user using that device is allowed to access the server. We can use a simple example to help highlight the practical differences between CAL and DAL licensing models and understand the most cost-effective approach: Assume an environment with Windows Server R2 standard edition and a total of 50 users and 25 devices workstations. In this case, we can purchase either 50 CAL licenses to cover the 50 users we have or alternatively 25 DAL licenses to cover the total amount of workstations that need to access the server. In this scenario, purchasing DALs is a more cost effective solution. If however we had 10 users with a total of 20 devices , e. Windows Foundation edition supports up to 15 users. In addition, Foundation edition owners cannot upgrade to other editions.
Advanced server protection Next-generation protection against the latest malware Based on Kaspersky's unique HuMachine framework, Kaspersky Security for Windows Server's multi-layered threat protection system detects all types of malware, including advanced, sophisticated and emerging threats. Despite its power, it has minimal impact on server performance and provides different optimization capabilities depending on server role for example, by configuring application priority or excluding business-critical trusted processes from scanning. Cloud-assisted server protection Kaspersky Security Network KSN delivers a faster-than-ever response to new threats, improving the performance of protection components and minimizing the risk of false positives. Exploit prevention Kaspersky Security for Windows Server comprises a powerful Exploit Prevention mechanism that protects process memory from exploits. It watches over protected processes and prevents attempts to exploit unpatched or even zero-day vulnerabilities in system components and applications.
