Managing Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows from Kaspersky Security Center
October 25, 2023
You can centrally manage several protected devices that have Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows installed and are joined to the same administration group via the Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows Administration Plug-in. Kaspersky Security Center also lets you separately configure the settings of each protected device included in the administration group.
An administration group is created manually via Kaspersky Security Center. The group includes several devices with Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows installed for which you want to configure the same control and protection settings. For details on using administration groups, see Kaspersky Security Center Help.
Application settings for a single protected device are unavailable if the operation of Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows on the protected device is controlled by an active Kaspersky Security Center policy.
Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows can be managed from Kaspersky Security Center in the following ways:
- Using Kaspersky Security Center policies. Kaspersky Security Center policies can be used to remotely configure the same protection settings for a group of devices. Task settings specified in the active policy have priority over task settings configured locally in the Application Console or remotely in the Properties: <Protected device name> window of Kaspersky Security Center.
Policies can be used to configure general application settings, settings for real-time computer protection tasks, activity control tasks on devices, and settings for starting local system tasks on a schedule.
- Using Kaspersky Security Center group tasks. Kaspersky Security Center group tasks allow remote configuration of common settings of tasks with an expiration period for a group of devices.
You can use group tasks to activate the application, configure On-Demand Scan task settings, update task settings, and Rule Generator for Applications Launch Control task settings.
- Using tasks for a set of devices. Tasks for a set of devices allow remote configuration of common task settings with a limited execution period for protected devices that do not belong to any administration group.
- Using the properties window of a single device. In the Properties: <Protected device name> window, you can remotely configure the task settings for an individual protected device included in an administration group. You can also configure both general application settings and settings for all Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows tasks if the selected protected device is not controlled by an active Kaspersky Security Center policy.
Kaspersky Security Center allows you to configure application settings and advanced features, and also work with logs and notifications. You can configure these settings for a group of protected devices and for an individual protected device.
