Configuring telemetry

Telemetry is a list of events that have occurred on the protected computer. Kaspersky Endpoint Security analyzes telemetry data and sends it to Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform during synchronization. Telemetry events arrive on the server almost continuously. Kaspersky Endpoint Security initiates synchronization with the server when any of the following conditions are satisfied:

  • Synchronization interval has run out.
  • The number of events in the buffer exceeds the upper limit.

Therefore, by default, the application synchronizes every 30 seconds or whenever the buffer holds 1024 events. You can configure the synchronization behavior in the Kaspersky Endpoint Security policy and select optimum values to match your network load (see instructions below).

If there is no connection between Kaspersky Endpoint Security and the server, the application queues new events. When the connection is restored, Kaspersky Endpoint Security sends queued events to the server in proper order. To avoid overloading the server, Kaspersky Endpoint Security may skip some events. To enable this, you can optimize event transmission settings, for example, to set a maximum events-per-hour value (see instructions below).

If you are using Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform together with another solution which also uses telemetry, you can turn off telemetry for KATA (EDR) (see instructions above). This lets you optimize server load for these solutions. For example, if you have the Managed Detection and Response solution and KATA (EDR) deployed, you can use MDR telemetry and create Threat Response tasks in KATA (EDR).
