The encryption algorithm used by Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Windows depends on the encryption module, which is installed separately. The data encryption functionality becomes available only after the encryption module is installed.
To download the encryption module distribution package, go to Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Windows (for workstations) download page, click Files and select aes_encryption_module_220.127.116.114en.exe.
Once the encryption module distribution file with the .exe extension has been downloaded, unpack it to get the installer .msi file aes_encryption_module.msi.
To get full access to all encryption management features in Kaspersky Security Center 10, you should additionally install the encryption module on a host with the Administration Console. This will allow you, for example, to manage the Authentication Agent accounts or request / recieve the Authetication Agent password recovery data via the Administration Console.
