Interaction between the Administration Server and devices is performed by the Network Agent component of Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console. Network Agent must be installed on all devices on which Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console is used to manage Kaspersky applications.
Network Agent is installed on a device as a service with the following set of attributes:
- With the name "Kaspersky Security Center Network Agent"
- Set to automatically start when the operating system starts
- Using the LocalSystem account
A device that has Network Agent installed is called a managed device or device. You can install Network Agent on a Windows, Linux, or Mac device.
The name of the process that Network Agent starts is klnagent.exe.
Network Agent synchronizes the managed device with the Administration Server. Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console automatically synchronizes the Administration Server with the managed devices several times per hour. The Administration Server sets the synchronization interval (also referred to as the heartbeat) depending on the number of managed devices.
