About tasks

Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console manages Kaspersky security applications installed on devices by creating and running tasks. Tasks are required for installing, launching, and stopping applications, scanning files, updating databases and software modules, and performing other actions on applications. Tasks can be performed on the Administration Server and on devices.

The following types of tasks are performed on devices:

For each application, you can create multiple group tasks, global tasks, or local tasks.

You can make changes to the settings of tasks, view the progress of tasks, and copy, export, import, and delete tasks.

A task is started on a device only if the application for which the task was created is running.

Execution results of tasks are saved in the OS event log on each device and in the Administration Server database.

Do not include private data in task settings. For example, avoid specifying the domain administrator password.
