A policy is a collection of application settings that are specified for an administration group. A policy does not define all application settings.
Multiple policies with different values can be configured for a single application. However, there can be only one active policy for an application at a time within an administration group. When you create a new policy, all other policies within an administration group become inactive. You can change a policy status later.
You can use policies to apply identical Kaspersky Endpoint Security settings to all client computers within an administration group.
You can remotely change the values of settings specified by a policy for individual computers in an administration group using Kaspersky Endpoint Security. You can locally change only those settings modification of which is not prohibited by the policy.

After the policy is applied for the first time, local application settings change in accordance with the policy settings.

To configure the rights to access policy settings, go to the Security section of the properties window of the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server.

If the user account under which you accessed the Administration Server does not have rights to edit settings of certain functional scopes, the settings of these functional scopes are not available for editing.
