For a full description of the settings in this section, please refer to the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows documentation.

In the Essential Threat Protection section of the policy properties window, we recommend that you specify additional settings in the Firewall and File Threat Protection subsections.

The Firewall subsection contains settings that allow you to control the network activity of applications on the client devices. A client device uses a network to which one of the following statuses is assigned: public, local, or trusted. Depending on the network status, Kaspersky Endpoint Security can allow or deny network activity on a device. When you add a new network to your organization, you must assign an appropriate network status to it. For example, if the client device is a laptop, we recommend that this device use the public or trusted network, because the laptop is not always connected to the local network. In the Firewall subsection, you can check whether you correctly assigned statuses to the networks used in your organization.

To check the list of networks:

  1. In the policy properties, go to Essential Threat Protection → Firewall.
  2. In the Available networks section, click the Settings button.
  3. In the Firewall window that opens, go to the Networks tab to view the list of networks.

In the File Threat Protection subsection, you can disable the scanning of network drives. Scanning network drives can place a significant load on network drives. It is more convenient to perform indirect scanning, on file servers.

To disable scanning of network drives:

  1. In the policy properties, go to Essential Threat Protection File Threat Protection.
  2. In the Security level section, click the Settings button.
  3. In the File Threat Protection window that opens, on the General tab clear the All network drives check box.
