This guide contains information about features of the Select and Advanced editions of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business. For information about other editions, please refer to the Online Help of the Kaspersky applications included in the solution.
This section provides instructions on how to deploy Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business in an organization's network. When you complete these procedures, centralized management of the network protection is established through Kaspersky Security Center and Kaspersky security applications. Configuration of administration groups, Kaspersky application updates, Kaspersky database updates, and policies are described in the Kaspersky Security Center documentation.
The deployment process depends on the network's size, topology, and other factors. The network described in this document has a number of features and limitations listed below.

Deployment proceeds in stages:
You must check system requirements for each Kaspersky application that you want to install, prepare a license key for Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, install a DBMS, and prepare the Administration Server and client devices.
You must download Kaspersky Security Center from the Kaspersky website and install Kaspersky Security Center (Administration Server, Administration Console, and other components) and a Kaspersky security application on the Administration Server device. As an option, Administration Console can be installed on the administrator's device.
You must perform the initial configuration of the Administration Server by using the Quick Start Wizard, discover all network devices, create an installation package for each Kaspersky security application that you want to install, and perform remote installation of Network Agent and the Kaspersky security applications on the client devices. You also have to install Network Agent and the Kaspersky security applications locally if the remote installation has failed or is not feasible on some devices (for example, because of an unstable network connection or a low throughput rate of the channel).
