Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud simplifies the management of Kaspersky products.
You do not have to deploy Kaspersky Security Center or allocate resources for the Administration Server in order to use Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud, as protection is carried out via the Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud web portal. All you need to do is connect the managed devices and protection will be enabled on them automatically according to the security policies in place.
If you want to use Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud instead of Kaspersky Security Center:
- Sign up to Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud.
- Open the Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud console.
- Go to Distribution packages and download the remote installation package for Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows. You must change the name of the distribution package if it contains UNICODE symbols.
- Create an installation package in Kaspersky Security Center with the distribution package you have downloaded. Select Create installation package for specified executable file.
- Set the following command line parameter n the distribution package settings:
- To make sure the remote installation task of the created installation package processes errors correctly and stops a task should any errors occur when installing Network Agent or Kapersky Endpoint Security, and to make it prompt you to reboot the system if needed, edit the executable_package.kpd file. It is located in the root folder of the created package (make sure you have the permissions to do so). Make the following changes:
- If Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows is installed on devices with the AES-256 encryption algorithm, create and run a task to remove it.
- Run the task to remove Network Agent. If Network Agent has already been removed, skip to the next step.
- Create a remote installation task for a specified group of computers. Select a means of distributing the package Using operating system resources and clear the Using Network Agent checkbox.
- Set the remote installation task to run after the Network Agent removal task has completed. If Network Agent has already been removed, set the task to run immediately after it has been created.
