Before configuring KATA protection settings in a message processing rule, make sure that KATA integration has been configured in the general protection settings.

To configure KATA protection in a message processing rule:

  1. In the application web interface window, select the Rules section.
  2. In the rules table, select the rule for which you want to configure KATA protection.

    This opens the View rule window.

  3. Click Edit.

    Rule settings become editable.

  4. In the left pane, select the KATA Protection section.
  5. Use the toggle switch on the right of the section title to enable or disable KATA protection for messages that match the rule criteria.

    KATA protection is disabled by default.

  6. If you enabled KATA protection at the previous step, use the In case of detection drop-down list to select the action to take on messages:
    • Delete message.
    • Reject.
    • Skip.

    The Delete message action is selected by default.

  7. If you want messages with detected objects to be automatically placed in Backup based on the results of a scan on the KATA server, select the Move message to Backup check box.

    This check box is selected by default.

  8. If you want the application to add a tag to the beginning of the subject of messages in which objects are detected by KATA scans, type the text of the tag in the text box under the Move message to Backup check box.

    The [KATA detect] tag is added by default.

  9. Click Save.

KATA protection is now configured. The specified settings are applied to messages that match the rule criteria.

To ensure that the settings you have configured are actually used during operation of Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway, make sure that KATA protection is enabled for the rule and that the rule you have configured is enabled.
