An update source is a resource that contains updates for databases and application modules of Kaspersky Endpoint Security.
Update sources include the Kaspersky Security Center server, Kaspersky update servers, and network or local folders.
If you do not have access to Kaspersky update servers (for example, Internet access is restricted), you can contact Kaspersky headquarters to request contact information for Kaspersky partners. Kaspersky partners will provide you with updates on a removable drive.
When ordering updates on a removable drive, please specify whether you also need application module updates.
The default list of update sources includes Kaspersky Security Center and Kaspersky update servers. You can add other update sources to the list. You can specify HTTP/FTP servers and shared folders as update sources.
Kaspersky Endpoint Security does not support updates from HTTPS servers unless they are Kaspersky's update servers.
If several resources are selected as update sources, Kaspersky Endpoint Security tries to connect to them one after another, starting from the top of the list, and performs the update task by retrieving the update package from the first available source.
