Aug 21, 2023
To protect your computer more effectively, Kaspersky Security 8 for Linux Mail Server uses data that is received from users around the globe. Kaspersky Security Network is designed for gathering this data.
Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) is a cloud service infrastructure that provides access to Kaspersky's online knowledge base containing information about the reputation of files, web resources, and software. Data from Kaspersky Security Network ensures a faster response by Kaspersky Security 8 for Linux Mail Server to new objects that have not yet been added to the antivirus databases, improves the performance of some protection components, and reduces the risk of false alarms.
Thanks to users who participate in Kaspersky Security Network, Kaspersky is able to promptly gather information about the types and sources of objects that are not yet listed in databases of anti-virus software, develop solutions for neutralizing such objects, and minimize the number of false positives. Participation in KSN also enables other users of KSN to receive up-to-date information about threats to enterprise IT infrastructure.
When you participate in Kaspersky Security Network, Kaspersky Security 8 for Linux Mail Server sends queries about reputation of files, web resources, and software to Kaspersky Security Network, and receives responses containing reputation data for such objects.
Participation in Kaspersky Security Network is voluntary. The decision to participate in Kaspersky Security Network is taken during installation of Kaspersky Security 8 for Linux Mail Server, and can be changed at any time.

If you do not want to participate in KSN, you can use the Kaspersky Private Security Network (hereinafter also referred to as KPSN). KPSN is a solution that allows users to access the reputation databases of Kaspersky Security Network and other statistical data without sending data from their computers to Kaspersky Security Network.
