Kaspersky Security Center allows you to create a list of custom tools (hereinafter also referred to simply as tools), that is, applications activated for a client device in Administration Console, through the Custom tools group of the context menu. Each tool in the list will be associated with a separate menu command, which Administration Console uses to start the application corresponding to that tool.

The applications starts on the administrator's workstation. The application can accept the attributes of a remote client device as command-line arguments (NetBIOS name, DNS name, or IP address). Connection to the remote device can be established through tunneling.

By default, the list of custom tools contains the following service programs for each client device:

  • Remote diagnostics is a utility for remote diagnostics of Kaspersky Security Center.
  • Remote Desktop is a standard Microsoft Windows component named Remote Desktop Connection.
  • Computer Management is a standard Microsoft Windows component.

To add or remove custom tools, or to edit their settings,

In the context menu of the client device, select Custom tools → Configure custom tools.

The Custom tools window opens. In this window, you can add custom tools or edit their settings by using the Add and Modify buttons. To remove a custom tool, click the remove button with the red cross icon ().
