To create optimal Application Startup Control rules, it is recommended to first get a picture of the applications that are used on computers on the local area network. To do this, you can obtain the following information:

  • Vendors, versions, and localizations of applications used on the corporate LAN.
  • Frequency of application updates.
  • Application usage policies adopted in the company (this may be security policies or administrative policies).
  • Storage location of application distribution packages.

Information about applications that are used on corporate LAN computers is available in the Applications registry folder and in the Executable files folder. The Applications registry folder and the Executable files folder are located in the Application management folder in the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console tree.

The Applications registry folder contains the list of applications that were detected by Network Agent which is installed on the client computer.

The Executable files folder contains a list of all executable files that have ever been started on client computers or that were detected during the inventory task of Kaspersky Endpoint Security.

To view general information about the application and its executable files, and the list of computers on which an application is installed, open the properties window of an application that is selected in the Applications registry folder or in the Executable files folder.
