To edit a security profile:

  1. Open Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Management Console.
  2. Select the Security managementSecurity profiles section.

    The Security profiles section contains a list of security profiles configured in Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud.

  3. Click the link with the name of the security profile that you want to edit.

    The profile properties page opens. The page contains information about the profile power and collections of security profile settings for managed devices. The security profile power shows how well the profile protects your users' devices. Collections of settings for devices running different operating systems are grouped into the Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android sections.

  4. If you want, increase the profile power in the Security profile audit section. To do so, enable the protection components (for example, click Enable File Threat Protection), and then enable the use of Kaspersky Security Network. As an alternative, you can click the Enable all components button to enable all of the disabled protection components and the use of Kaspersky Security Network at once.

    The use of Kaspersky Security Network is enabled or disabled across the workspace. It means that if you enable the use of Kaspersky Security Network in one security profile, it is automatically enabled in all of your profiles.

    If you have not prepared a distribution package of a Kaspersky security application (for example, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac), the components in the corresponding area are excluded from the calculation of the security profile power. Also, you cannot enable or disable these components in the Security profile audit section. As soon as a distribution package is prepared, these components will be taken into account.

  5. Define the security profile settings as you like.

    Use the detailed instructions on configuring security profiles for Windows devices, Mac devices, Android devices, and iOS devices.

The new values of the security profile settings will be applied to the devices of users to whose accounts this security profile was assigned.
