Update 11.5.0

Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.5.0 for Windows offers the following features and improvements:

  1. Support for Windows 10 20H2. For details about support for the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system, please refer to the Technical Support Knowledge Base.
  2. Updated application interface. Also updated the application icon in the notification area, application notifications, and dialog boxes.
  3. Improved interface of the Kaspersky Endpoint Security web plug-in for the Application Control, Device Control, and Adaptive Anomaly Control components.
  4. Added functionality for importing and exporting lists of rules and exclusions in XML format. The XML format allows you to edit lists after they are exported. You can manage lists only in the Kaspersky Security Center Console. The following lists are available for export/import:
  5. Object MD5 information was added to the threat detection report. In previous versions of the application, Kaspersky Endpoint Security showed only the SHA256 of an object.
  6. Added capability to assign the priority for device access rules in Device Control settings. Priority assignment enables more flexible configuration of user access to devices. If a user has been added to multiple groups, Kaspersky Endpoint Security regulates device access based on the rule with the highest priority. For example, you can grant read-only permissions to the Everyone group and grant read/write permissions to the administrators group. To do so, assign a priority of 0 for the administrators group and assign a priority of 1 for the Everyone group. You can configure the priority only for devices that have a file system. This includes hard drives, removable drives, floppy disks, CD/DVD drives, and portable devices (MTP).
  7. Added new functionality:
  8. Added capability to configure the secure traffic scan mode: always scan traffic even if protection components are disabled, or scan traffic when requested by protection components.
  9. Revised procedure for deleting information from reports. A user can only delete all reports. In previous versions of the application, a user could select specific application components whose information would be deleted from reports.
  10. Revised procedure for importing a configuration file containing Kaspersky Endpoint Security settings, and revised procedure for restoring application settings. Prior to importing or restoring, Kaspersky Endpoint Security shows only a warning. In previous versions of the application, you could view the values of the new settings before they were applied.
  11. Simplified procedure for restoring access to a drive that was encrypted by BitLocker. After completing the access recovery procedure, Kaspersky Endpoint Security prompts the user to set a new password or PIN code. After setting a new password, BitLocker will encrypt the drive. In the previous version of the application, the user had to manually reset the password in the BitLocker settings.
  12. Users now have the capability to create their own local trusted zone for a specific computer. This way, users can create their own local lists of exclusions and trusted applications in addition to the general trusted zone in a policy. An administrator can allow or block the use of local exclusions or local trusted applications. An administrator can use Kaspersky Security Center to view, add, edit, or delete list items in the computer properties.
  13. Added capability to enter comments in the properties of trusted applications. Comments help simplify searches and sorting of trusted applications.
  14. Managing the application through the REST API:
    • There is now the capability to configure the settings of the Mail Threat Protection extension for Outlook.
    • It is prohibited to disable detection of viruses, worms, and Trojans.

Update 11.4.0

Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.4.0 for Windows offers the following features and improvements:

  1. New design of the application icon in the taskbar notification area. The new is now displayed instead of the old icon_tray_on_old icon. If the user is required to perform an action (for example, restart the computer after updating the application), the icon will change to . If the protection components of the application are disabled or have malfunctioned, the icon will change to or icon_tray_critical. If you hover over the icon, Kaspersky Endpoint Security will display a description of the problem in computer protection.
  2. Kaspersky Endpoint Agent, which is included in the distribution kit, has been updated to version 3.9. Kaspersky Endpoint Agent 3.9 supports integration with new Kaspersky solutions. For more information about integration with Kaspersky solutions, refer to Kaspersky Endpoint Agent help.
  3. Added the Not supported by license status for Kaspersky Endpoint Security components. You can view the status of components by clicking the Protection components button in the main application window.
  4. New events from Exploit Prevention have been added to reports.
  5. Drivers for Kaspersky Disk Encryption technology are now automatically added to the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) when drive encryption is started. The previous version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security added drivers when installing the application. Adding drivers to WinRE can improve the stability of the application when restoring the operating system on computers protected by Kaspersky Disk Encryption technology.

The Endpoint Sensor component has been removed from Kaspersky Endpoint Security. You can still configure Endpoint Sensor settings in a policy provided that Kaspersky Endpoint Security version 11.0.0 to 11.3.0 is installed on the computer.
