Kaspersky Endpoint Security supports the following tasks:
Virus Scan. Kaspersky Endpoint Security scans the computer areas specified in the task settings for viruses and other threats. The Virus Scan task is required for the operation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security and is created during the Initial Configuration Wizard. It is recommended to configure a schedule that runs the task at least once per week.
Add key. Kaspersky Endpoint Security adds a key for activating applications, including an additional key. Before running the task, make sure that the number of computers, on which the task is to be executed, does not exceed the number of computers allowed by the license.
Change application components. Kaspersky Endpoint Security installs or removes components on client computers according to the list of components specified in the task settings. The File Threat Protection component cannot be removed. The optimal set of Kaspersky Endpoint Security components helps to conserve computer resources.
Inventory. Kaspersky Endpoint Security receives information about all application executable files that are stored on computers. The Inventory task is performed by the Application Control component. If the Application Control component is not installed, the task will end with an error.
Update. Kaspersky Endpoint Security updates databases and application modules. The Update task is required for the operation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security and is created during the Initial Configuration Wizard. It is recommended to configure a schedule that runs the task at least once per day.
Wipe data. Kaspersky Endpoint Security deletes files and folders from users' computers immediately or if there is no connection with Kaspersky Security Center for a long time.
Update rollback. Kaspersky Endpoint Security rolls back the last update of databases and application modules. This may be necessary if, for example, new databases contain incorrect data that could cause Kaspersky Endpoint Security to block a safe application.
Integrity check. Kaspersky Endpoint Security analyzes application files, checks files for corruption or modifications, and verifies the digital signatures of application files.
Manage Authentication Agent accounts. Kaspersky Endpoint Security configures the Authentication Agent account settings. Authentication Agent is needed for working with encrypted drives. Before the operating system is loaded, the user needs to complete authentication with the Agent.
