Kaspersky Security Center

Obtaining and viewing a list of applications installed on client devices

14 April 2024

ID 184063

Kaspersky Security Center inventories all software installed on managed client devices running Linux and Windows.

Network Agent compiles a list of applications installed on a device, and then transmits this list to Administration Server. It takes about 10-15 minutes for the Network Agent to update the application list.

For Windows-based client devices, Network Agent receives most of the information about installed applications from the Windows registry. For Linux-based client devices, package managers provide information about installed applications to Network Agent.

To view the list of applications installed on managed devices:

  1. In the main menu, go to Operations Third-party applications → Applications registry.

    The page displays a table with the applications that are installed on managed devices. Select the application to view its properties, for example, vendor name, version number, list of executable files, list of devices on which the application is installed, list of available software updates, and list of detected software vulnerabilities.

  2. You can group and filter the data of the table with installed applications as follows:
    • Click the settings icon () in the upper-right corner of the table.

      In the invoked Columns settings menu, select the columns to be displayed in the table. To view the operating system type of the client devices on which the application is installed, select the Operating system type column.

    • Click the filter icon () in the upper-right corner of the table, and then specify and apply the filter criterion in the invoked menu.

      The filtered table of installed applications is displayed.

To view the list of applications installed on a specific managed device,

In the main menu, go to DevicesManaged devices<device name>AdvancedApplications registry. In this menu, you can export the list of applications to a CSV file or TXT file.
