Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Nodes

Creating the protection scope

August 3, 2023

ID 151188

The following types of protection scopes are applied in the Anti-Cryptor task:

  • Predefined. You can use the default protection scope, which includes all the device's shared network folders in the scan. Applied if the All shared network folders on the protected device setting is selected.
  • User. You can manually configure the protection scope by selecting the folders that need to be included in the protection scope of the Anti-Cryptor task. Applied if the Only specified shared folders setting is selected.

You can only use a local path to configure the protection scope for the Anti-Cryptor task.

When using either a predefined or user protection scope, you can exclude selected folders from the protection scope, for example, if data in these folders is encrypted by programs installed on remote devices.

To configure a protection scope for the Anti-Cryptor task:

  1. In the Application Console tree, expand the Real-Time Computer Protection node.
  2. Select the Anti-Cryptor child node.
  3. Click the Anti-Cryptor link in the details pane of the Properties node.

    The Task settings window appears.

  4. On the Protection area tab, select the folders that Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Nodes will scan when executing the Anti-Cryptor task:
    • All shared network folders on the protected device.
    • Only specified shared folders.
  5. To specify the protected device's shared folders that you want to include in the encryption protection scope, use one of the following methods:
    • Manually:
      1. Enter the name of the shared folder on a protected device.
      2. Click the Add button.

        The folder is added to the list.

    • Browse:
      1. Click the Browse button.

        The standard Microsoft Windows window opens.

      2. Select the folder that you want to add to the protection scope of the task.
      3. Click the OK button.
  6. Click the OK button.

The specified settings are saved.
