About event logs in Kaspersky Security

Kaspersky Security event logs are files in TXT format that are stored locally in the folder <Application setup folder>\logs. You can specify a different folder to store logs.

The detail level of application event logs depends on the current settings of log detail level.

Kaspersky Security maintains event logs according to the following algorithm:

Separate logs are created individually for each Security Server irrespectively of the application deployment variant.

The folder with logs and the folder with the application data (<Application installation folder>\data) may contain confidential data. The application does not ensure protection against unauthorized access to data in those folders. You should take your own steps to protect the data in those folders against unauthorized access.
