About device tags
Oct 23, 2023
Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console enables you to tag devices. A tag is the label of a device that can be used for grouping, describing, or finding devices. Tags assigned to devices can be used for creating selections, for finding devices, and for distributing devices among administration groups.
You can tag devices manually or automatically. You may use manual tagging when you want to tag an individual device. Auto-tagging is performed by Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console in accordance with the specified tagging rules.
Devices are tagged automatically when specified rules are met. An individual rule corresponds to each tag. Rules are applied to the network properties of the device, operating system, applications installed on the device, and other device properties. For example, if your network includes devices running Windows, Linux, and macOS, you can set up a rule that will assign the
[Linux] tag to all Linux-based devices. Then, you can use this tag when creating a device selection; this will help you sort all Linux-based devices and assign them a task. A tag is automatically removed from a device in the following cases:
- When the device stops meeting conditions of the rule that assigns the tag.
- When the rule that assigns the tag is disabled or deleted.
The list of tags and the list of rules on each Administration Server are independent of all other Administration Servers, including a primary Administration Server or subordinate virtual Administration Servers. A rule is applied only to devices from the same Administration Server on which the rule is created.
