Initial deployment of anti-virus protection

This section provides information about traffic volume values after Network Agent 12 and Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows are installed on the client device (see the table below).

The Network Agent is installed using forced installation, when the files required for setup are copied by Administration Server to a shared folder on the client device. After installation, the Network Agent retrieves the distribution package of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows, using the connection to the Administration Server.

After Network Agents are installed on the client devices, one of the devices in the administration group can be assigned to act as distribution point. It is used for distribution of installation packages. In this case, traffic volume transferred during initial deployment of anti-virus protection varies significantly depending on whether you are using IP multicasting.

If IP multicasting is used, installation packages are sent once to all running devices in the administration group. Thus, total traffic becomes N times smaller, where N stands for the total number of running devices in the administration group. If you are not using IP multicasting, the total traffic is identical to the traffic calculated as if the distribution packages are downloaded from the Administration Server. However, the package source is the distribution point, not the Administration Server.
