About Kaspersky Endpoint Security management plug-in

The Kaspersky Endpoint Security management web plug-in (hereinafter also referred to as simply the "web plug-in") facilitates interaction between Kaspersky Endpoint Security and Kaspersky Security Center 12 Web Console. The web plug-in lets you manage Kaspersky Endpoint Security by using the following tools: policies, tasks, and local application settings.

The web plug-in is not installed by default in Kaspersky Security Center 12 Web Console. In contrast to the Management Plug-in for the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console, which is installed on the administrator workstation, the web plug-in must be installed on a computer that has Kaspersky Security Center 12 Web Console installed. The functionality of the web plug-in is available to all administrators that have access to Web Console in a browser. You can view the list of installed web plug-ins in Web Console interface: Console settingsPlug-ins. For more details about the compatibility of web plug-in versions and Web Console, refer to Kaspersky Security Center documentation.

Installing the web plug-in

For Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, all necessary plug-ins are installed by default. In the Cloud Console interface, the Plug-in tab is not available.

You can install the web plug-in as follows:

Updating the web plug-in

If a new version of the web plug-in becomes available, Web Console will display the notification Updates are available for utilized plug-ins. You can proceed to update the web plug-in version from this Web Console notification. You can also manually check for new web plug-in updates in the Web Console interface (Console settingsPlug-ins). The previous version of the web plug-in will be automatically removed during the update.

When the web plug-in is updated, already existing components (for example, policies or tasks) are saved. The new settings of components implementing new functions of Kaspersky Endpoint Security will appear in existing components and will have the default values.

You can update the web plug-in as follows:

If any component is opened (such as a policy or task), the web plug-in checks its compatibility information. If the version of the web plug-in is equal to or later than the version specified in the compatibility information, you can change the settings of this component. Otherwise, you cannot use the web plug-in to change the settings of the selected component. It is recommended to update the web plug-in.
