Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud allows you to manage updates for the applications installed on your users' devices running Windows, including patches that fix software vulnerabilities detected on the devices.

This feature is available only if you activated Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud under a Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Plus or Pro license.

Updates functionality (including providing anti-malware signature updates and codebase updates), as well as KSN functionality will not be available in the software in the U.S. territory from 12:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on September 10, 2024 in accordance with the restrictive measures.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud starts searching for applicable updates only after you define a vulnerability detection schedule.

You can view the list of detected updates and configure update installation.

You can approve updates that must be installed and skip updates that must not be installed. You can also revoke an update approval, for example, if the update installation resulted in application malfunction.

If an update for an application cannot be installed because this application is currently running, the device user is prompted to close the software. Further actions depend on the user response:

  • If the user closes the application, the update installation continues.
  • If the user skips the prompt, the update installation continues as well, but the device may require restart.
  • If the user cancels the prompt, the update installation fails and will be re-attempted during the next scheduled start.
