Managing the application using the Administration Console
December 12, 2023
This section describes administering Kaspersky Endpoint Security using Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console.
This description is provided for Kaspersky Security Center 14.2.
Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console (hereinafter also referred to as the "Administration Console") is Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in that is installed on the administrator's workstation and provides user interface for the Administration Server and Network Agent administrative services.
The Administration Console lets you remotely install and uninstall, start and stop Kaspersky Endpoint Security, configure application settings, and start tasks on the managed devices.
The application is managed through Administration Console by means of the Kaspersky Endpoint Security MMC administration plug-in.
To manage Kaspersky Endpoint Security using the Administration Console, move the devices, on which Kaspersky Endpoint Security is installed, to administration groups. You can create administration groups in Kaspersky Security Center before Kaspersky Endpoint Security installation and configure rules to automatically move the devices to administration groups. You can also manually move the devices from the Unassigned devices folder to administration groups after installing Kaspersky Endpoint Security (for details, refer to Kaspersky Security Center documentation).
You can perform the following actions in the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console:
- View the protection status of devices.
- View general application settings.
- Update application databases and modules.
- Manage policies.
- Manage application tasks.
If the user account which is used to access the Administration Server does not have permissions to edit the settings of certain functional scopes, the settings of these functional scopes are not available for editing. Configuration of some settings is not supported in the KESL container.
