This section provides a description of the components of Kaspersky Security Center and their interaction.

An administrator can manage Administration Server by using Administration Console or Web Console. Administration Server receives updates from Kaspersky update servers, exchanges information with KSN servers, and distributes updates to client devices.

Kaspersky Security Center architecture

Kaspersky Security Center comprises the following main components:

  • Administration Console (also referred to as Console). Provides a user interface to the administration services of Administration Server and Network Agent. Administration Console is implemented as a snap-in for Microsoft Management Console (MMC). Administration Console allows remote connection to Administration Server over the internet.
  • Kaspersky Security Center Web Console. Provides a web interface for creating and maintaining the protection system of a client organization's network that is managed by Kaspersky Security Center.
  • Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server (also referred to as Server). Centralizes storage of information about applications installed on the organization's network and about how to manage them.
  • Kaspersky update servers. HTTP(S) servers at Kaspersky from which Kaspersky applications download database and application module updates.
  • KSN servers. Servers that contain a Kaspersky database with constantly updated information about the reputation of files, web resources, and software. Kaspersky Security Network ensures faster responses by Kaspersky applications to threats, improves the performance of some protection components, and reduces the likelihood of false positives.
  • Client devices. Client company's devices protected by Kaspersky Security Center. Each device that has to be protected must have one of the Kaspersky security applications installed.
