Applies to:
  • Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Smartphone
  • Kaspersky Security Center Service Provider Edition

  • Before you begin deploying Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Smartphone via Kaspersky Security Center Service Provider Edition, the administrator must configure management of the mobile devices on the Administration Server.

    Please perform the following actions depending on the selected Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Smartphone deployment mode (from a workstation or by email):

    Installing the Mobile devices support component

    Configuring the connection settings

    Installing the plug-in for managing Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Smartphone


    Installing the Mobile devices support component

    To manage the protection of mobile devices through Kaspersky Security Center Service Provider Edition, it is essential that the Mobile devices support box is checked at the Select Features stage in the Kaspersky Security Center SPE setup wizard.



    When installing the component Mobile devices support, the Administration Server for mobile devices certificate is created. This is used for authentication of the mobile devices when exchanging data with the Administration Server. 

    The mobile devices certificate files klsrvmob.cer and klsrvmob.prk are stored in the Cert folder within the Kaspersky Security Center SPE installation folder. During the first synchronization of the mobile devices and the Administration Server, a copy of the certificate is delivered to the device and stored in a special folder.

    InformationWithout the mobile devices certificate, it is not possible to establish a connection between the Administration Server and the mobile devices. It is useless to copy the klsrvmob.cer and klsrvmob.prk certificate files from one Administration server to another. If the user renames the mobile devices certificate, or deletes it from the device, during the next synchronization the Administration Server automatically sends a copy of the certificate to the device.

    If, during installation of the Administration Server, the Mobile devices support box was not checked, perform an installation “on top” of the installed Administration server and check the Mobile devices support box.

    The data exchange between the mobile devices and the Administration server goes over Internet. Therefore you should configure the address used by mobile devices to connect to the Administration Server.

    Configuring the connection settings

    In order to configure the connection settings for mobile devices:

    • Select the Administration Server in the Administration console;
    • Go to the Settings tab;
    • Check the Open port for mobile devices box;
    • Indicate the port through which the Administration Server should expect to connect with mobile devices. Port 13292 is used by default.
    • Click OK.
    InformationIf the box is not checked, or the port is indicated incorrectly, devices will not be able to connect to the server or send and receive information.

    Installing the plug-in for managing Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Smartphone

    The plug-in for managing Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Smartphone is a module integrated into the Administration console. This allows managing the application settings, create policies and reports.

    InformationYou can create a policy for Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Smartphone only after installing a plugin for managing this application into the Administration console.

    There exist plugins for the applications manageable via Kaspersky Security Center SPE.

    The plugin version corresponds to the managed application version, but they do not always match.

    Run the klcfginst.exe file (included into the Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Smartphone distribution package) on the host running the Administration console to install the plugin.

    How to find the version of the plugin installed on the Administration console:

    • Open the Administration server properties;
    • Go to the General tab and click Advanced;
    • Click the Information about the plug-ins installed for the application link.
