About KSN

Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) is an online service infrastructure that provides access to the online Knowledge Base of Kaspersky, which contains information about the reputation of files, web resources, and software. The use of data from Kaspersky Security Network ensures faster responses by Kaspersky applications to threats, improves the effectiveness of some protection components, and reduces the risk of false positives. KSN allows you to use Kaspersky reputation databases to retrieve information about applications installed on managed devices.

By participating in KSN, you agree to send to Kaspersky in automatic mode information about the operation of Kaspersky applications installed on client devices that are managed through Kaspersky Security Center. Information is transferred in accordance with the current KSN access settings.

The application prompts you to join KSN during application installation and while running the Quick Start Wizard. You can start or stop using KSN at any moment when using the application.

Client devices managed by the Administration Server interact with KSN through KSN Proxy. KSN Proxy provides the following features:

You can configure the KSN proxy server in the KSN Proxy section of the Administration Server properties window.
