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

To disable saving information about installed software modules:

  1. In the main menu, go to DEVICES → POLICIES & PROFILES.
  2. Click the policy for Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows.

    The properties window of the selected policy opens.

  3. In the policy properties, go to Application settingsGeneral SettingsReports and Storage.
  4. Under Data transfer to Administration Server, disable the About started applications check box if it is still enabled in the top-level policy.

    When this check box is enabled, 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).

The information about installed software modules is no longer saved to the Administration Server database.

General Settings section, Interface subsection

If the Anti-Virus protection on the organization's network must be managed in centralized mode through Administration Console, specify the interface settings as described below.

To specify recommended interface settings:

  1. On the DEVICES tab, select POLICIES & PROFILES.
  2. Click the policy for Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows.

    The properties window of the selected policy opens.

  3. In the policy properties, go to Application settingsGeneral SettingsInterface.
  4. Under Interaction with user, select the No interface option. This disables the display of the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows user interface on workstations.
  5. Under Password protection, enable the toggle switch. This reduces the risk of unauthorized or unintended changes in settings of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows on workstations.

The recommended settings for the interface of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows are specified.
