ID 129833

To protect the protected virtual machine’s file system, File Anti-Virus applies various groups of settings. These groups of settings are called file security levels. You can select one of the preset file security levels or configure security level settings on your own. There are three file security levels: High, Recommended, and Low. The Recommended file security level is considered the optimal group of settings, and is recommended by Kaspersky.

To change the file security level:

  1. Open Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console.
  2. In the Managed devices folder of the console tree, open the folder with the name of the administration group to which the relevant protected virtual machines belong.
  3. In the workspace, select the Policies tab.
  4. Select the Light Agent for Linux policy in the list of policies and open the Properties: <Policy name> window by double-clicking.
  5. In the policy properties window, select the File Anti-Virus section in the list on the left.
  6. In the right part of the window, in the Security level section, do one of the following:
    • If you want to install one of the pre-installed file security levels (High, Recommended, or Low), use the slider to select one.
    • If you want to configure a custom file security level, click the Settings button and, in the File Anti-Virus window that opens, enter your settings.

      After you configure a custom file security level, the name of the file security level in the Security level section changes to Custom.

    • If you want to change the file security level to Recommended, click the Default button.
  7. Click the Apply button.
