Virtual Administration Servers
Dec 4, 2023
On the basis of a physical Administration Server, multiple virtual Administration Servers can be created, which will be similar to secondary Administration Servers. Compared to the discretionary access model, which is based on access control lists (ACLs), the virtual Administration Server model is more functional and provides a larger degree of isolation. In addition to a dedicated structure of administration groups for assigned devices with policies and tasks, each virtual Administration Server features its own group of unassigned devices, own sets of reports, selected devices and events, installation packages, moving rules, etc. For maximum mutual isolation of MSP clients, we recommend that you choose virtual Administration Servers as the functionality to be used. In addition, creating a virtual Administration Server for each MSP client allows you to provide clients basic options of network administration through Kaspersky Security Center Web Console.
Virtual Administration Servers are very similar to secondary Administration Servers, but with the following distinctions:
- A virtual Administration Server lacks most global settings and its own TCP ports.
- A virtual Administration Server has no secondary Administration Servers.
- A virtual Administration Server has no other virtual Administration Servers.
- A physical Administration Server views devices, groups, events, and objects on managed devices (items in Quarantine, applications registry, etc.) of all its virtual Administration Servers.
- A virtual Administration Server can only scan the network with distribution points connected.
