Creating a process termination task

If you believe that a process running on the computer could threaten the security of the computer or the corporate LAN, you can terminate the process.

To create a process termination task:

  1. Select the Tasks section in the program web interface window.

    This opens the task table.

  2. Click the Add button and select Kill process.

    This opens the task creation window.

  3. Configure the following settings:
    1. File path —Path to the file of the process that you want to terminate.

      You can also specify the path to an alternate data stream of this file. In this case, only processes of the specified data stream will be terminated. The processes of the other streams of this file will be executed.

    2. MD5/SHA256—MD5- or SHA256 hash of the file of the process that you want to terminate. This field is optional.
    3. Description—Task description. This field is optional.
    4. If you want to display a task run notification to the user of the computer on which the task is running, select the Notify user about the task execution check box on the right of the Notification setting name.
    5. Task for—Task scope:
      • If you want to run the task on all hosts of all servers, select the All hosts option.
      • If you want to run the task on selected servers, select the Specified servers option and on the right of the Servers parameter name select the check boxes next to the names of the servers on which you want to run the task.

        This option is available only when distributed solution and multitenancy mode is enabled.

      • If you want to run the task on selected hosts, select the Specified hosts option and list these hosts in the Hosts field.
  4. Click the Add button.

The process termination task will be created.

Users with the Security auditor role cannot create process termination tasks.

Users with the Security officer role do not have access to tasks.
