To configure the Device Control task settings:

  1. Open the Task settings window.
  2. On the General tab, configure the following task settings:
    • In the Task mode section, select one of the task modes:
      • Active.

      If an external device you consider to be untrusted is connected to a protected device before the Device Control task is run in the Active mode, the device is not blocked by the application. We recommend that you disconnect the untrusted device manually or restart the protected device. Otherwise, the Default Deny principle will not be applied to the device.

      • Statistics only.
    • Select or clear the Allow using all external devices when the Device Control task is not running check box.
  3. If necessary, on the Schedule and Advanced tabs, configure the scheduled task start settings.
  4. To edit the list of device control rules, click the Device Control rules link in the lower part of the details pane of the Device Control node.

Kaspersky Security for Windows Server immediately applies the new settings to the running task. Information about the date and time when the settings were modified, and the values of task settings before and after modification, are saved in the system audit log.
