About the license
October 25, 2023
A license is a time-limited right to use the application, granted under the End User License Agreement.
A valid license entitles you to receive use of the application in accordance with the terms of the End User License Agreement as well as receive technical support when necessary.
The scope of service and the period of application use depend on the type of license used to activate the application.
You can activate the application in two ways:
- Using a key file, which grants you the usage under the commercial license
- Using an activation code to purchase a commercial license.
You can purchase a Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows standard license or Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows Compliance Edition extended license, which includes two additional system inspection components: File Integrity Monitor and Log Inspection.
When a commercial license expires, the application continues to run, but the following features become unavailable:
- Integrating with Kaspersky Security Network
- Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows database update.
If the license key is removed, the application will continue to run. If you remove a license, the application continues to run; the On-Demand Scan and Real-Time File Protection tasks remain available, but all other tasks and Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows database updates will be unavailable. The same happens if Kaspersky adds your license to the denylist.
To continue using all Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows features, you must renew your the license.
To ensure maximum protection of your device, we recommend that you renew the license before it expires.
Make sure that the expiration date for the additional key is later than for the active one
