Assigning the Critical Areas Scan status to an On-Demand Scan task
August 3, 2023
By default, Kaspersky Security Center assigns the Warning status to the protected device if the Critical Areas Scan task is performed less often than specified by the Critical areas scan has not been performed for a long time event-generation threshold in Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Nodes.
To configure scanning of all protected devices in a single administration group:
- Create a group On-Demand Scan task.
- In the Options window of the task wizard, select the Consider task as critical areas scan check box. The specified task settings (the scan scope and security settings) will be applied to all protected devices in the group. Configure the task schedule.
- Using a new or existing policy, disable the scheduled start of On-Demand Scan local system tasks on the group protected devices.
Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server will then evaluate the security status of the protected device and will notify you about it based on the results of the last run of a task with the Critical Areas Scan status, rather than based on the results of the Critical Areas Scan local system task.
You can assign the Critical Areas Scan status both to On-Demand Scan group tasks and to tasks for groups of protected devices.
The Application Console can be used to view whether an On-Demand Scan task is a Critical Areas Scan task.
In the Application Console, the Consider task as critical areas scan check box is displayed in the task properties but cannot be edited.
