Configuring the policy in the General Settings section

For a full description of the settings in this section please refer to the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows documentation.

Described below are advanced setup actions, which we recommend that you perform in the policy properties window of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows, in the General Settings section.

General Settings section, Reports and Storage subsection

In the Data transfer to Administration Server section, please note the following setting:

About started applications check box: if this check box is selected, the Administration Server database saves information about all versions of all software modules on the networked devices. This information may require a significant amount of disk space in the Kaspersky Security Center database (dozens of gigabytes). Therefore, if the About started applications check box is still selected in the top-level policy, it must be cleared.

General Settings section, Interface subsection

If the Anti-Virus protection on the organization's network must be managed in centralized mode through Administration Console, you must disable the display of the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows user interface on workstations (by clearing the Display application interface check box in the Interaction with user section), and enable password protection on them (by selecting the Enable password protection check box in the Password protection section).
