Settings of a managed device
Oct 23, 2023
To view the settings of a managed device:
- In the main menu, go to Devices → Managed devices.
The list of managed devices is displayed.
- In the list of managed devices, click the link with the name of the required device.
The properties window of the selected device is displayed.
The General section displays general information about the client device. Information is provided on the basis of data received during the last synchronization of the client device with the Administration Server:
- Last updated
- Last visible
- Connected to Administration Server
- Do not disconnect from the Administration Server
The Network section displays information about the network properties of the client device.
The System section provides information about the operating system installed on the client device.
The Protection section provides information about the current status of anti-virus protection on the client device:
- Device status
- All problems
- Real-time protection
- Last on-demand scan
- Total number of threats detected
- Active threats
- Disk encryption status
Device status defined by application
The Device status defined by application section provides information about the device status that is defined by the managed application installed on the device. This device status can differ from the one defined by Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.
The Applications section lists all Kaspersky applications installed on the client device. You can click the application name to view general information about the application, a list of events that have occurred on the device, and the application settings.
Active policies and policy profiles
The Active policies and policy profiles section lists the policies and policy profiles which are currently active on the managed device.
In the Tasks tab, you can manage client device tasks: view the list of existing tasks, create new ones, remove, start, and stop tasks, modify their settings, and view execution results. The list of tasks is provided based on data received during the last session of client synchronization with the Administration Server. The Administration Server requests the task status details from the client device. If connection is not established, the status is not displayed.
The Events tab displays events logged on the Administration Server for the selected client device.
In the Incidents tab, you can view, edit, and create incidents for the client device. Incidents can be created either automatically, through managed Kaspersky applications installed on the client device, or manually by the administrator. For example, if some users regularly move malware from their removable drives to devices, the administrator can create an incident. The administrator can provide a brief description of the case and recommended actions (such as disciplinary actions to be taken against a user) in the text of the incident, and can add a link to the user or users.
An incident for which all of the required actions have been taken is called processed. The presence of unprocessed incidents can be chosen as the condition for a change of the device status to Critical or Warning.
This section contains a list of incidents that have been created for the device. Incidents are classified by severity level and type. The type of an incident is defined by the Kaspersky application, which creates the incident. You can highlight processed incidents in the list by selecting the check box in the Processed column.
In the Tags tab, you can manage the list of keywords that are used for finding client devices: view the list of existing tags, assign tags from the list, configure auto-tagging rules, add new tags and rename old tags, and remove tags.
In the Applications registry section, you can view the registry of applications installed on the client device and their updates; you can also set up the display of the applications registry.
Information about installed applications is provided if Network Agent installed on the client device sends required information to the Administration Server. You can configure sending of information to the Administration Server in the properties window of Network Agent or its policy, in the Repositories section. Information about installed applications is provided only for devices running Windows.
Network Agent provides information about the applications based on data received from the system registry.
The Executable files section displays executable files found on the client device.
This section provides a list of distribution points with which the device interacts.
In the Hardware registry section, you can view information about hardware installed on the client device. You can view this information for Windows devices and Linux devices.
Ensure that the lshw utility is installed on Linux devices from which you want to fetch hardware details. Hardware details fetched from virtual machines may be incomplete depending on the hypervisor used.
This section displays a list of software updates found on this device but not installed yet.
The Software vulnerabilities section provides information about vulnerabilities in third-party applications installed on client devices. You can use the search field above the list to look for vulnerabilities by name.
