Administration groups

An administration group (hereinafter also referred to as group) is a logical set of managed devices combined on the basis of a specific trait for the purpose of managing the grouped devices as a single unit within Kaspersky Security Center.

All managed devices within an administration group are configured to do the following:

  • Use the same application settings (which you can specify in group policies).
  • Use a common operating mode for all applications through the creation of group tasks with specified settings. Examples of group tasks include creating and installing a common installation package, updating the application databases and modules, scanning the device on demand, and enabling real-time protection.

A managed device can belong to only one administration group.

You can create hierarchies that have any degree of nesting for Administration Servers and groups. A single hierarchy level can include secondary and virtual Administration Servers, groups, and managed devices. You can move devices from one group to another without physically moving them. For example, if a worker's position in the enterprise changes from that of accountant to developer, you can move this worker's computer from the Accountants administration group to the Developers administration group. Thereafter, the computer will automatically receive the application settings required for developers.
