The Kaspersky announcements section (MONITORING & REPORTING → Kaspersky announcements) keeps you informed by providing information related to your version of Kaspersky Security Center and the managed applications installed on the managed devices. Kaspersky Security Center periodically updates the information in the section by removing outdated announcements and adding new information.
Administration Server must have an internet connection to receive Kaspersky announcements.
The announcements include information of the following types:
Security-related announcements are intended to keep the Kaspersky applications installed in your network up-to-date and fully functional. The announcements may include information about critical updates for Kaspersky applications, fixes for found vulnerabilities, and ways to fix other issues in Kaspersky applications. Security-related announcements are enabled by default. If you do not want to receive the announcements, you can disable this feature.
To show you the information that corresponds to your network protection configuration, Kaspersky Security Center sends data to Kaspersky cloud servers and receives only those announcements that relate to the Kaspersky applications installed in your network. The data set that can be sent to the servers is described in the End User License Agreement that you accept when you install Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server.
Marketing announcements include information about special offers for your Kaspersky applications, advertisements, and news from Kaspersky. Marketing announcements are disabled by default. You receive this type of announcements only if you enabled Kaspersky Security Network (KSN). You can disable marketing announcements by disabling KSN.
To show you only relevant information that might be helpful in protecting your network devices and in your everyday tasks, Kaspersky Security Center sends data to Kaspersky cloud servers and receives the appropriate announcements. The data set that can be sent to the servers is described in the Processed Data section of the KSN Statement.
New information is divided into the following categories, according to importance:
When new information appears in the Kaspersky announcements section, Kaspersky Security Center 13 Web Console displays a notification label that corresponds to the importance level of the announcements. You can click the label to view this announcement in the Kaspersky announcements section.
You can specify the Kaspersky announcements settings, including the announcement categories that you want to view and where to display the notification label.
