Kaspersky Endpoint Security offers the following key features.

Protection against viruses and other malware

The app uses the Anti-Virus component to protect the device against viruses and other malware.

Anti-Virus performs the following functions:

  • Scans the entire device, installed apps, or selected folders for threats
  • Protects the device in real time
  • Scans newly installed apps before they are launched for the first time
  • Updates anti-virus databases

If an application that collects information and sends it to be processed is installed on a mobile device, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android may classify this application as malware.

Protection of stolen or lost device data

The Anti-Theft component protects your data against unauthorized access and helps you to locate the device if it gets lost or stolen.

Anti-Theft lets you perform the following operations remotely:

  • Lock the device.

    To prevent a hacker from having the capability to unlock the device, Kaspersky Endpoint Security must be enabled as an Accessibility Features service on mobile devices running Android 7.0 or later.

  • Turn on a loud alarm on the device even if the device sound is disabled.
  • Get the device location map coordinates.
  • Wipe data stored on the device.
  • Reset to factory settings.
  • Secretly take a mugshot of the person using your device.

To enable Anti-Theft operations, Kaspersky Endpoint Security must be enabled as a device administrator. If you did not grant device administrator rights during the initial configuration of apps, you can grant administrator rights to Kaspersky Endpoint Security using the appropriate notification or in the device settings (Android SettingsSecurityDevice administrators).

Protection against online threats

The Web Protection component provides protection against online threats.

Web Protection blocks malicious websites that distribute malicious code, and phishing websites designed to steal your confidential data and gain access to your financial accounts. Web Protection scans websites before you open them by using the Kaspersky Security Network cloud service. Learn more.

App Control

According to corporate security requirements, the administrator of the remote administration system (hereinafter also "administrator") creates lists of recommended, blocked, and required apps. The App Control component is used to install recommended and required apps, update them, and remove blocked apps.

App Control lets you install recommended and required apps to your device via a direct link to the distribution package or a link to Google Play. App Control lets you remove blocked apps that violate corporate security requirements.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security must be enabled as an Accessibility Features service to ensure proper functioning of App Control. If you did not enable this service during the Initial Configuration Wizard for the app, you can enable Kaspersky Endpoint Security as an Accessibility Features service using the appropriate notification or in the device settings (Android SettingsAccessibilityServices).

Compliance Control

The Compliance Control component automatically checks whether the device conforms to corporate security requirements. If your device does not meet corporate security requirements, the app shows a notification with the following information:

  • Reason for the non-compliance (for example, blocked apps were detected on the device or Anti-Virus databases are out of date).
  • Time period within which you must eliminate the non-compliance (for example, 24 hours).
  • Action that will be taken on the device if you do not eliminate the non-compliance within the specified time period (for example, device will be locked).
  • Action performed to fix the device's non-compliance with corporate security requirements.
