Scenario: Kaspersky applications deployment through Kaspersky Security Center 12 Web Console

This scenario explains how to deploy Kaspersky applications through Kaspersky Security Center 12 Web Console. You can use the Quick Start Wizard and Protection Deployment Wizard, or you can complete all necessary steps manually.

Prerequisites

The following applications are available for deployment by using Kaspersky Security Center 12 Web Console:

Kaspersky applications deployment proceeds in stages:

  1. Downloading management plug-in for the application

    This stage is handled by the Quick Start Wizard. If you choose not to run the Wizard, download the plug-in for Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows manually.

  2. Downloading and creating installation packages

    This stage is handled by the Quick Start Wizard.

    The Quick Start Wizard allows you to download the installation package with the management plug-in. If you did not select this option when running the Wizard, or if you did not run the Wizard at all, you must download the package manually.

    If you cannot install Kaspersky applications by means of Kaspersky Security Center on some devices, for example, on remote employees' devices, you can create stand-alone installation packages for applications. If you use stand-alone packages to install Kaspersky applications, stage 3 and stage 4 below can be disregarded.

  3. Creating, configuring, and running the remote installation task

    For Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows, this step is part of the Protection Deployment Wizard, which starts automatically after the Quick Start Wizard has finished. If you choose not to run the Protection Deployment Wizard, you must create this task manually and configure it manually.

    You also can manually create several remote installation tasks for different administration groups or different device selections. You can deploy different versions of one application in these tasks.

    Make sure that all the devices on your network are discovered; then run the remote installation task (or tasks).

  4. Creating and configuring tasks

    The Install update task of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows must be configured.

    This step is part of the Quick Start Wizard: the task is created and configured automatically with the default settings. If you did not run the Wizard, you must create this task manually and configure it manually. If you use the Quick Start Wizard, make sure that the schedule for the task meets your requirements. (By default, the scheduled start for the task is set to Manually, but you might want to choose another option.)

    Other Kaspersky applications might have other default tasks. Please refer to the documentation of the corresponding applications for details.

    Make sure that the schedule for each task that you create meets your requirements.

  5. Creating policies

    Create the policy for each application manually or (in case of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows) through the Quick Start Wizard. You can use the default settings of the policy; you can also modify the default settings of the policy according to your needs at any time.

  6. Verifying the results

    Make sure that deployment was completed successfully: you have policies and tasks for each application, and these applications are installed on the managed devices.

Results

Completion of the scenario yields the following:
