By default, Firewall is enabled and functions in the optimal mode.

To enable or disable Firewall:

  1. In the main application window, click the Application settings icon in the form of a gear wheel. button.
  2. In the application settings window, select Essential Threat ProtectionFirewall.
  3. Use the Firewall toggle to enable or disable the component.
  4. Save your changes.

As a result, if the Firewall is enabled, Kaspersky Endpoint Security controls network activity and blocks unauthorized network connections to your computer, as well as blocks unauthorized network activity of applications on your computer. Network activity is also controlled by the Network Threat Protection component. The Network Threat Protection component scans inbound network traffic for activity that is typical of network attacks.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security logs network attack events in its reports irrespective of the Firewall settings. Even if the Firewall blocks the network connection using rules and thus prevents a network attack, the Network Threat Protection component registers network attack events. It is required to generate statistical information about network attacks on the computers in your organization.
