Update 11.9.0

Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.9.0 for Windows offers the following features and improvements:

  1. Now you can create an Authentication Agent service account when using Kaspersky disk encryption. The service account is necessary to gain access to the computer, for example, when the user forgets the password. You can also use the service account as a reserve account.
  2. Kaspersky Endpoint Agent distribution package is no longer part of the application distribution kit. To support Detection and Response solutions, you can use the Kaspersky Endpoint Security built-in agent. If necessary, you can download the Kaspersky Endpoint Agent distribution package from the Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform distribution kit.
  3. The alert details interface for Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response Optimum (EDR Optimum) is improved. Threat Response features now have tooltips. A step-by-step instruction for ensuring the security of corporate infrastructure is also displayed when indicators of compromise are detected.
  4. Now you can activate Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows with a Kaspersky Hybrid Cloud Security license key.
  5. New events added about establishing a connection with domains that have untrusted certificates and encrypted connections scan errors.

Update 11.8.0

Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.8.0 for Windows offers the following features and improvements:

  1. You can now upgrade Kaspersky Security for Windows Server to Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows. Now you can use Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows instead of Kaspersky Security for Windows Server on servers and clusters of your organization. To make this possible, Kaspersky Endpoint Security has new functionality:
    • Added support for Web Threat Protection, Mail Threat Protection, Web Control and Device Control components for computers running Windows for servers.
    • Now you can migrate the component set of Kaspersky Security for Windows Server to Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows when you upgrade the application. Prior to the installation, Kaspersky Endpoint Security (KES) checks the computer for the presence of Kaspersky applications. If Kaspersky Security for Windows Server is installed on the computer, KES detect the set of KSWS components that are installed and selects the same components for installation.
  2. Added the built-in agent to support the operation of the Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response Expert solution. Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response Expert is a solution for protecting the corporate IT infrastructure from advanced cyber threats. The functionality of the solution combines automatic detection of threats with the ability to react to these threats to counteract advanced attacks including new exploits, ransomware, fileless attacks, as well as methods using legitimate system tools. EDR Expert offers more threat monitoring and response functionality than EDR Optimum. For more information about the solution, refer to the Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response Expert Help.
  3. Network Monitor interface is now improved. The Network Monitor now shows the UDP protocol in addition to TCP.
  4. The Virus Scan task was improved. If you have rebooted the computer during the scan, Kaspersky Endpoint Security automatically runs the task, continuing from the point where the scan was interrupted.
  5. Now you can set a limit for task execution time. You can limit the execution time for Virus Scan and IOC Scan tasks. After the specified amount of time, Kaspersky Endpoint Security stops the task. To reduce the Virus Scan task execution time, you can, for example, configure the scan scope or optimize the scan.
  6. Limitations of server platforms are lifted for the application installed on Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session. Kaspersky Endpoint Security now considers Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session a workstation operating system, not a server operating system. Correspondingly, server platform limitations no longer apply to the application on Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session. The application also uses a workstation license key for activation instead of a server license key.
