Recommendations on managing your customers' devices
Oct 23, 2023
This section contains recommendations for organizing the customer devices that you want to protect.
Recommendations depend on whether you are using Kaspersky Security Center for the first time or have already used the on-premises version:
- If you have never used Kaspersky Security Center before, you have two options:
- Create a virtual Administration Server for the devices of each customer (recommended option). In this case, the devices of each customer can be managed through a dedicated virtual Administration Server independently from other customers. At the same time, you can use the primary Administration Server to create common policies and tasks for all of the customers. The reports generated on the primary Administration Server can include data from all of the virtual Administration Servers.
- Create an administration group for the devices of each customer. If you want to divide customer devices further, you can create a hierarchy of subordinate administration groups under each parent group. For example, you may need subordinate groups if you want to use different protection settings for devices of employees who work in different departments.
- If you have already used Kaspersky Security Center running on-premises, you can migrate your existing administration groups and related objects from Kaspersky Security Center on-premises to Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.
You cannot migrate virtual Administration Servers. After migrating the administration groups and other objects, you can create virtual Administration Servers in Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.
Proceed to configuring migration.
The administrator of a virtual Administration Server can only proceed to this virtual Server from the primary Administration Server. All the objects created on the primary Administration Server are available for reading to the administrator of a virtual Administration Server (for example, widgets, reports, or the user roles).
