Disabling the scan of network devices
Nov 27, 2023
When Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows scans network drives, this can place a significant load on them. It is more convenient to perform indirect scanning on file servers.
You can disable scanning of network drives in the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows policy properties. For a description of these policy properties, see the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows Help.
To disable scanning of network drives:
- In the main menu, go to Devices → Policies & profiles.
- Click the policy of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows.
The properties window of the selected policy opens.
- In the policy properties, go to Application settings → Essential Threat Protection → File Threat Protection.
- Under Protection scope, disable the All network drives option.
- Click OK.
Scanning of network drives is disabled.
