Kaspersky Endpoint Agent

You can install Kaspersky Endpoint Agent on a virtual machine with the Light Agent for Windows component installed. Kaspersky Endpoint Agent provides interaction between Kaspersky Security and Kaspersky solutions designed to detect complex threats: Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform, Kaspersky Sandbox, Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response Optimum.

Interaction with Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform is not supported if you use Kaspersky Security to protect virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

To use Kaspersky Endpoint Agent in the Kaspersky Security operation:

  1. When installing or updating Light Agent for Windows, enable integration with Kaspersky Endpoint Agent. To do this, select the Integration with Kaspersky Endpoint Agent option in the list of components or use the corresponding command line parameter, depending on the installation or update method.

    You can also enable integration with Kaspersky Endpoint Agent by changing the composition of installed Light Agent for Windows components.

    If Kaspersky Endpoint Agent is installed on the virtual machine, but integration with Kaspersky Endpoint Agent is not enabled, interaction between Kaspersky Endpoint Agent and Kaspersky Security is disabled. Kaspersky solutions designed to detect complex threats are not used in the application operation.

  2. Install Kaspersky Endpoint Agent 3.11 or update Kaspersky Endpoint Agent to version 3.11 on a virtual machine. Installation or update must be run with the SVM_UPDATE_MODE=1 key. Installation or update is performed using standard Kaspersky Endpoint Agent tools.

    If Kaspersky Endpoint Agent was installed or updated without the SVM_UPDATE_MODE=1 key, optimization of Kaspersky Endpoint Agent operation on the virtual machine is disabled. Degradation of the virtual machine performance is possible.

  3. In Kaspersky Security Center, create a task for updating application databases and modules for Kaspersky Endpoint Agent and configure its schedule. Select Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server as the database update source. For more details on creating a task, refer to the help of that Kaspersky solution you use Kaspersky Endpoint Agent to integrate with.

    Automatic update of application databases and modules is disabled for Kaspersky Endpoint Agent optimized to work with Light Agent for Windows. If the task of updating application databases and modules is not configured for Kaspersky Endpoint Agent, the databases and modules of Kaspersky Endpoint Agent are not updated.

For more details on installing, updating and removing Kaspersky Endpoint Agent, refer to the help of that Kaspersky solution you use Kaspersky Endpoint Agent to integrate with.
