Inventory of executable files

You can use an inventory task to inventory executable files on client devices. Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows provides the feature of inventorying executable files.

The number of executable files received from a single device cannot exceed 150,000. Having reached this limit, Kaspersky Security Center cannot receive any new files.

You can reduce load on the database while obtaining information about the installed applications. To do this, we recommend that you run an inventory task on reference devices on which a standard set of software is installed.

Before you begin, enable notifications about the applications startup in the Kaspersky Endpoint Security policy and the Network Agent policy, so you can transfer data to Administration Server.

To enable notifications about applications startup:

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

  1. In the console tree, select the Tasks folder.
  2. Click the New task button in the workspace of the Tasks folder.

    The Add Task Wizard starts.

  3. In the Select the task type window of the Wizard, select Kaspersky Endpoint Security as the task type, and then select Inventory as the task subtype, and click Next.
  4. Follow the rest of the Wizard instructions.

After the Wizard is done, an inventory task for Kaspersky Endpoint Security is created. The newly created task is displayed in the list of tasks in the workspace of the Tasks folder.

A list of executable files that have been detected on devices during inventory is displayed in the workspace of the Executable files folder.

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