Kaspersky Lab applications. Centralized deployment

This section describes the methods for remote installation of Kaspersky Lab applications and their removal from networked devices.

Before deploying applications on client devices, make sure that the hardware and software of client devices meets the applicable requirements.

Network Agent is a component that provides for Administration Server connection with client devices. Therefore, it must be installed on each client device to be connected to the remote centralized control system. The device on which the Administration Server is installed can only use the server version of Network Agent. This version is included in Administration Server as a part that is installed and removed together with it. There is no need to install Network Agent on that device.

Network Agent can be installed remotely or locally like any application. During centralized deployment of security applications through Administration Console, you can install Network Agent jointly with security applications.

Network Agents can differ depending upon the Kaspersky Lab applications with which they work. In some cases, Network Agent can be installed locally only (for details please refer to the documentation for the corresponding applications). You only have to install Network Agent on a client device once.

Kaspersky Lab applications are managed through Administration Console by using management plug-ins. Therefore, to access the application management interface through Kaspersky Security Center, the corresponding management plug-in must be installed on the administrator's workstation.

You can perform remote installation of applications from the administrator's workstation in the Kaspersky Security Center main window.

To install software remotely, you must create a remote installation task.

The created task for remote installation will start according to its schedule. You can interrupt the installation procedure by stopping the task manually.

If remote installation of an application returns an error, you can find the cause of this error and fix it using the remote installation preparation utility.

You can track the progress of remote installation of Kaspersky Lab applications on a network using the deployment report.

For details about management of the listed applications in Kaspersky Security Center, please refer to the documentation for the corresponding applications.
