Deploying the application using Kaspersky Security Center
Oct 22, 2023
You can install Kaspersky Endpoint Security on a client device remotely from the administrator's workstation using Kaspersky Security Center, by means of the Administration Console or Kaspersky Security Center Web Console.
You can deploy Kaspersky Endpoint Security on the devices in the corporate network in the following ways:
- Using the Protection Deployment Wizard.
This installation method is recommended if you are satisfied with the default application settings and your organization has a simple infrastructure that does not require special configuration.
- Using the remote installation task.
The universal installation method allowing you to configure the application settings and flexibly manage the remote installation tasks.
For the remote installation, Kaspersky Endpoint Security installation package is used. An installation package is a set of files created for remote installation of Kaspersky applications using Kaspersky Security Center. The installation package contains the settings required to install the application and ensure its operation immediately after the installation. The values of the settings correspond to the default values of the application settings. The installation package is created using the .kud file included in the application distribution kit. Kaspersky Endpoint Security installation package is common for all supported operating systems and processor architecture types.
To manage the operation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security installed on the client devices using Kaspersky Security Center, assign these devices to the administration groups. Before starting Kaspersky Endpoint Security installation, you can create Kaspersky Security Center administration groups to which you want to move the devices with Kaspersky Endpoint Security installed, and configure the rules to automatically move the devices to these administration groups. If rules for moving devices to the administration groups are not configured, Kaspersky Security Center moves all the devices that have the Administration Agent installed and are connected to Administration Server to the Unassigned devices list. In this case, you need to manually move computers to the administration groups (refer to Kaspersky Security Center documentation for details).
