Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform (KATA)

Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform (hereinafter also referred to as "KATA") is a solution designed for timely detection of sophisticated threats such as targeted attacks, advanced persistent threats (APT), zero-day attacks, and others. The Endpoint Sensor component is designed to support interaction with KATA. Endpoint Sensor is included in Endpoint Agent. For integration with KATA, select the Endpoint Agent component during installation of the application (for example, in the installation package). After the application is installed, the Endpoint Sensor settings will be available in a policy. You can remove Endpoint Sensor only together with Kaspersky Endpoint Security.

If the Endpoint Sensor component was installed on the computer by using KATA deployment tools, the component will be reinstalled. Endpoint Sensor will be configured according to the policy of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows.

Endpoint Sensor is installed on client computers. On these computers, the component constantly monitors processes, active network connections, and files that are modified. Endpoint Sensor relays information to the KATA server.

The component functionality is available under the following operating systems:
