Hardware and software requirements

Deploying the program on a virtual platform requires installing the VMware ESXi™ 6.5.0 or 6.7.0 hypervisor.

The configuration of the Kaspersky Sandbox servers depends on the volume of data to be processed by the application and the throughput of the network link.

Kaspersky Sandbox operation on AMD processors is not supported.

Example of Kaspersky Sandbox performance:

Server configuration:

CPU: 4 cores with Hyper-Threading support (8 threads), 2.1 GHz

RAM: 32 GB

Two hard drives in a RAID 1 array:

  • 600 GB each
  • rotation speed: 10,000 rpm

    Two network adapters with 1 Gbit/s data transfer rate.

    On a server with the specified configuration, Kaspersky Sandbox can:

  • Process objects received from Kaspersky Endpoint Agent workstations. Maximum number of workstations: 250.
  • Process objects received from external systems via the API. Maximum objects per hour: 75.

For example, if you want to double the performance of Kaspersky Sandbox (to receive objects from 500 workstations or 150 objects per hour from external systems via the API), you can combine 2 servers into a cluster.

If you are installing Kaspersky Sandbox on a VMware ESXi virtual machine (two HDDs in Hardware RAID 1, 600 GB each) for processing objects from 250 workstations, use the following configuration:

Web browser requirements for working with Kaspersky Sandbox over the web interface

It is recommended to use one of the following browsers in order to configure and work with Kaspersky Sandbox over the web interface.

Hardware and software requirements of the Kaspersky Endpoint Agent application

You can install Kaspersky Endpoint Agent 3.7 on workstations running the following operating systems:

You can install Kaspersky Endpoint Agent 3.7 on servers running the following operating systems:
