To reduce Internet traffic, you can configure updates of application databases and modules on devices of the organization's LAN from a shared directory by using the Kaspersky Update Utility. For this purpose, one of the devices in the organization's LAN must receive update packages from the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server or from Kaspersky update servers and use the utility to copy the received update packages to the shared directory. Other devices on the organization's LAN will be able to receive the update package from this shared directory.

Configuring application database and module updates from a shared directory consists of the following steps:

  1. Install Kaspersky Update Utility on one of the devices of the organization's LAN.
  2. Configure copying of the update package to the shared directory in the Kaspersky Update Utility settings.
  3. Configure application database and module updates from the specified shared directory to the remaining devices on the organization's LAN.

You can download the Kaspersky Update Utility distribution kit from the Kaspersky Technical Support website. After installing the utility, select the update source (for example, the Administration Server repository) and the shared directory to which the Kaspersky Update Utility will copy update packages. For detailed information about using Kaspersky Update Utility, refer to the Kaspersky Knowledge Base.

To configure updates from a shared directory:

  1. In the main window of Web Console, select DevicesTasks.

    The list of tasks opens.

  2. In the list of tasks, select the Update task for Kaspersky Endpoint Security and click the link with the task name to open the task properties window.

    The Update task is created automatically by the Web Console Quick Start Wizard. To create the Update task, install Kaspersky Endpoint Security web plug-in while running the Wizard.

  3. In the task properties window, select the Application settings tab.
  4. In the list on the left, select the Database update source section.

    The task settings are displayed in the right part of the window.

  5. In the Database updates source section, select the Other sources on the local or global network option.
  6. In the table of update sources, click the Add button.
  7. In the Update source field, specify the path to the shared directory.

    The source address must match the address indicated in the Kaspersky Update Utility settings.

  8. Select the Use this source check box and click OK.
  9. In the table, set the order of the update sources using the Up and Down buttons.
  10. Click Save.
