Replacing third-party security applications
Oct 23, 2023
Installation of Kaspersky security applications through Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console may require removal of third-party software incompatible with the application being installed. Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console provides several ways of removing the third-party applications.
Removing incompatible applications when configuring remote installation of an application
You can enable the Uninstall incompatible applications automatically option when you configure remote installation of a security application. You can find this option in the Protection deployment wizard. When this option is enabled, Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console removes incompatible applications removes incompatible applications before installing a security application on a managed device.
Removing incompatible applications through a dedicated task
To remove incompatible applications through a task, use the Uninstall application remotely task. This task should be run on devices before the security application installation task. For example, in the installation task you can select On completing another task as the schedule type where the other task is Uninstall application remotely.
This method of uninstallation is useful when the security application installer cannot properly remove an incompatible application.
