You can configure KSN usage in Kaspersky Security operation in the Protection Server policy settings using the Administration Console, and in the Web Console when creating or editing the Protection Server policy settings (Application settings → Kaspersky Security Network settings).
If the use of KSN is enabled in the active Protection Server policy, KSN services are used by Kaspersky Security both when protecting virtual machines and when performing scan tasks on virtual machines.
If the policy with enabled use of KSN is inactive, KSN is not used by Kaspersky Security.
If you want Kaspersky Security to use the KSN, please make sure the required KSN type is configured in Kaspersky Security Center. To use Global KSN, the KSN proxy server service must be enabled in Kaspersky Security Center. To use Private KSN, it must be enabled and configured in Kaspersky Security Center. You can configure the KSN proxy server service and Private KSN in Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server properties (in the KSN proxy server section in the Administration Console; in the KSN proxy server settings section in the Web Console). See Kaspersky Security Center help for more information.
To configure use of KSN in the operation of Kaspersky Security in the Administration Console:
All data transmission and processing conditions set forth in the Kaspersky Security Network Statement for Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.2 Light Agent also apply to the Kaspersky Security update 5.2.1.
You can select the type of KSN used by Kaspersky Security and configure the Private KSN usage in Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server properties. See Kaspersky Security Center help for more information.
