About Kaspersky announcements
Oct 23, 2023
The Kaspersky announcements section (Monitoring & reporting → Kaspersky announcements) keeps you informed by providing information related to Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console and the managed applications installed on the managed devices. Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console periodically updates the information in the section by removing outdated announcements and adding new information.
Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console shows only those Kaspersky announcements that are related to the currently connected Administration Server and the Kaspersky applications installed on the managed devices of this Administration Server. The announcements are shown individually for any type of Administration Server—primary, secondary, or virtual.
If several administrators use Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console and they set different interface languages, Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console displays Kaspersky announcements in every language used by the administrators. When you change the interface language, Kaspersky announcements in the selected language are added to the section automatically after you sign out of the console and then sign in again.
The announcements include information of the following types:
- Security-related announcements
Security-related announcements are intended to keep the Kaspersky applications installed in your network up-to-date and fully functional. The announcements may include information about critical updates for Kaspersky applications, fixes for found vulnerabilities, and ways to fix other issues in Kaspersky applications. Security-related announcements are enabled by default. If you do not want to receive the announcements, you can disable this feature.
You cannot disable the security-related announcements in the trial mode of Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.
To show you the information that corresponds to your network protection configuration, Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console sends data to Kaspersky cloud servers and receives only those announcements that relate to the Kaspersky applications installed in your network. The data set that can be sent to the servers is described in the Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console Agreement that you accept when you create a company workspace.
- Marketing announcements
Marketing announcements include information about special offers for your Kaspersky applications, advertisements, and news from Kaspersky. Marketing announcements are disabled by default. You receive this type of announcements only if you enabled Kaspersky Security Network (KSN). You can disable marketing announcements by disabling KSN.
To show you only relevant information that might be helpful in protecting your network devices and in your everyday tasks, Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console sends data to Kaspersky cloud servers and receives the appropriate announcements. The data set that can be sent to the servers is described in the Processed Data section of the KSN Statement.
New information is divided into the following categories, according to importance:
- Critical info
- Important news
When new information appears in the Kaspersky announcements section, Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console displays a notification label that corresponds to the importance level of the announcements. You can click the label to view this announcement in the Kaspersky announcements section.
