Update 12.1

Kaspersky Endpoint Security 12.1 for Windows offers the following features and improvements:

  1. A built-in agent for the Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform solution has been added. You no longer need Kaspersky Endpoint Agent in order to use EDR (KATA). All functions of Kaspersky Endpoint Agent will be performed by Kaspersky Endpoint Security. To migrate Kaspersky Endpoint Agent policies, use the Migration Wizard. After updating the application, Kaspersky Endpoint Security switches to using the built-in agent and removes Kaspersky Endpoint Agent. Kaspersky Endpoint Agent has been added to the list of incompatible software. Kaspersky Endpoint Security has built-in agents for all Detection and Response solutions, therefore installing Kaspersky Endpoint Agent to integrate with those solutions is no longer necessary.
  2. Azure WVD compatibility mode is now supported. This feature allows correctly displaying the state of the Azure virtual machine in the Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform console. Azure WVD compatibility mode allows assigning a permanent unique Sensor ID to these virtual machines.
  3. Now you can configure user access to mobile devices in iTunes or similar applications. That is, you can, for example, allow the mobile device to be used only in iTunes and block using the mobile device as a removable drive. The application also supports these rules for the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) application.
  4. Kaspersky Security Center version 11 is no longer supported. Upgrade Kaspersky Security Center to the latest version.

Update 12.0

Kaspersky Endpoint Security 12.0 for Windows offers the following features and improvements:

  1. The operation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security on servers has been improved. Now you can migrate from Kaspersky Security for Windows Server to Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows and use a single solution to protect workstations and servers. To migrate the application settings, run the Policies and tasks batch conversion wizard. The KSWS license key can be used to activate KES. After migrating to KES, you do not even need to restart the server. For more information about migrating to KES, see Migration Guide.
  2. The licensing of the application as part of a paid virtual machine image in Amazon Machine Image (AMI) has been improved. There is no need to activate the application separately. In this case, Kaspersky Security Center uses the license key for the cloud environment that is already added to the application.
  3. Device Control is improved:

Update 11.11.0

Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.11.0 for Windows offers the following features and improvements:

  1. Log Inspection component for servers has been added. Log Inspection monitors the integrity of the protected environment based on the results of Windows event log analysis. When the application detects signs of atypical behavior in the system, it informs the administrator, as this behavior may indicate an attempted cyber attack.
  2. File Integrity Monitor component for servers has been added. File Integrity Monitor detects changes to objects (files and folders) in a given monitoring area. These changes may indicate a computer security breach. When object changes are detected, the application informs the administrator.
  3. The alert details interface for Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response Optimum (EDR Optimum) has been improved. The elements of the threat development chain have been aligned, the links between the processes in the chain no longer overlap. This makes it easier to analyze the evolution of the threat.
  4. Application performance has been improved. For this purpose, network traffic processing by the Network Threat Protection component has been optimized.
  5. The option to upgrade Kaspersky Endpoint Security without a restart has been added. This lets you ensure uninterrupted operation of servers when upgrading the application. You can upgrade the application without a restart starting with version 11.10.0. You can also install patches without a restart starting with version 11.11.0.
  6. The Virus Scan task has been renamed in the Kaspersky Security Center Console. This task is now called Malware Scan.
