You can set up access to Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) on the Administration Server and on a distribution point.
To set up Administration Server access to Kaspersky Security Network (KSN):
Data is sent from client devices to KSN in accordance with the Kaspersky Endpoint Security policy, which is active on those client devices. If this check box is cleared, no data will be sent to KSN from the Administration Server and client devices through Kaspersky Security Center. However, client devices can send data to KSN directly (bypassing Kaspersky Security Center), in accordance with their respective settings. The Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows policy, which is active on client devices, determines which data will be sent directly (bypassing Kaspersky Security Center) from those devices to KSN.
If this option is enabled, client devices send patch installation results to Kaspersky. When enabling this option, make sure to read and accept the terms of the KSN Statement.
If you are using Private KSN, enable the Configure Private KSN option and click the Select file with KSN Proxy settings button to download the settings of Private KSN (files with the extensions pkcs7 and pem). After the settings are downloaded, the interface displays the provider's name and contacts, as well as the creation date of the file with the settings of Private KSN.
When you enable Private KSN, pay attention to the distribution points configured to send KSN requests directly to the Cloud KSN. The distribution points that have Network Agent version 11 (or earlier) installed will continue to send KSN requests to the Cloud KSN. To reconfigure the distribution points to send KSN requests to Private KSN, enable the Forward KSN requests to Administration Server option for each distribution point. You can enable this option in the distribution point properties or in the Network Agent policy.
When you select the Configure Private KSN check box, a message appears with details about Private KSN.
The following Kaspersky applications support Private KSN:
If you enable the Configure Private KSN option in Kaspersky Security Center, these applications receive information about supporting Private KSN. In the settings window of the application, in the Kaspersky Security Network subsection of the Advanced Threat Protection section, KSN provider: Private KSN is displayed. Otherwise, KSN provider: Global KSN is displayed.
If you use application versions earlier than Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Agentless Service Pack 2 or earlier than Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Service Pack 1 Light Agent when running Private KSN, we recommend that you use secondary Administration Servers for which the use of Private KSN has not been enabled.
Kaspersky Security Center does not send any statistical data to Kaspersky Security Network if Private KSN is configured in the KSN Proxy → KSN Proxy settings section of the Administration Server properties window.
If you have the proxy server settings configured in the Administration Server properties, but your network architecture requires that you use Private KSN directly, enable the Ignore KSC proxy server settings when connecting to Private KSN option. Otherwise, requests from the managed applications cannot reach Private KSN.
If this option is enabled, secondary Administration Servers use the primary Administration Server as the KSN proxy server. If this option is disabled, secondary Administration Servers connect to KSN on their own. In this case, managed devices use secondary Administration Servers as KSN proxy servers.
Secondary Administration Servers use the primary Administration Server as a proxy server if in the right pane of the KSN Proxy settings section, in the properties of secondary Administration Servers the Use Administration Server as a proxy server check box is selected.
The KSN access settings will be saved.
You can also set up distribution point access to KSN, for example, if you want to reduce the load on the Administration Server. The distribution point that acts as a KSN proxy server sends KSN requests from managed devices to Kaspersky directly, without using the Administration Server.
