Obtaining and viewing a list of executable files stored on client devices

You can obtain a list of executable files stored on managed devices. To inventory executable files, you must create an inventory task.

The feature of inventorying executable files is available for Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Windows and later versions, and for Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 4.0 Light Agent and later versions.

To create an inventory task for executable files on client devices:

  1. In the main menu, go to DEVICES → TASKS.

    The list of tasks is displayed.

  2. Click the Add button.

    The Add Task Wizard starts. Proceed through the Wizard by using the Next button.

  3. On the New task page, in the Application drop-down list, select Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows.
  4. In the Task type drop-down list, select Inventory.
  5. On the Finish task creation page, click the Finish button.

After the Add Task Wizard has finished, the Inventory task is created and configured. If you want, you can change the settings for the created task. The newly created task is displayed in the list of tasks.

For a detailed description of the inventory task, please refer to Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows Online Help and Kaspersky Security for Virtualization Light Agent.

After the Inventory task is performed, the list of executable files stored on managed devices is formed, and you can view the list.

During inventory, executable files in the following formats are detected: MZ, COM, PE, NE, SYS, CMD, BAT, PS1, JS, VBS, REG, MSI, CPL, DLL, JAR, and HTML.

To view the list of executable files stored on client devices:

In the OPERATIONS → THIRD-PARTY APPLICATIONS drop-down list, select EXECUTABLE FILES.

The page displays the list of executable files stored on client devices.

To send the executable file of the managed device to Kaspersky:

  1. In the main menu, go to OPERATIONS → THIRD-PARTY APPLICATIONS → EXECUTABLE FILES.
  2. Click the link of the executable file that you want to send to Kaspersky.
  3. In the window that opens, go to the Devices section, and then select the checkbox of the managed device from which you want to send the executable file.

    Before you send the executable file, make sure that the managed device has a direct connection to the Administration Server, by selecting the Do not disconnect from the Administration Server checkbox.

  4. Click the Send to Kaspersky button.

The selected executable file is downloaded for further sending to Kaspersky.
