Minimum hardware requirements

  • 8 CPU cores
  • 16 GB of RAM
  • 200 GB available on the hard drive to install application and store temporary files and log files

Software requirements

Software requirements for installing KSMG:

  • Rocky Linux version 8.9 or 9.3
  • Ubuntu version 20.04 LTS or 22.04 LTS
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 8.9 or 9.3

Software requirements for corporate LAN computers (to use SSO authentication for the application web interface):

  • Windows 10 (21H2, 22H2)
  • Windows 11 (22H2, 23H2)

Software requirements for configuring Kerberos or NTLM authentication using the SSO technology and for integration with an LDAP server:

  • Windows Server 2019 Standard
  • Windows Server 2022 Standard

KSMG supports integration with Postfix and Exim mail servers. The mail server version must be at least 3.4.13 for Postfix and at least 4.93 for Exim.

KSMG supports integration with the Nginx web server version 1.14.1 or later that is pre-installed in the operating system. We recommend using version 1.23 or later.

KSMG supports updating databases without an Internet connection through Kaspersky Security Center. All computers on which you want to update databases through Kaspersky Security Center must have Kaspersky Security Center Network Agent version 14.2.0.23324 or 15.0.0.12912 installed.

One of the following browsers must be installed on the computer of the application administrator:

  • Mozilla Firefox 119 or later
  • Microsoft Edge 96 or later
  • Google Chrome 96 or later

All computers on which you plan to install KSMG must satisfy the following conditions:

  • The operating system must have the en_US.UTF-8 locale installed.
  • Time synchronization must be configured in the operating system settings and the same time zone must be set.

These system requirements guarantee that KSMG will have a peak throughput of 10 messages per second with an average message size of 300 KB. The actual performance of the application depends on the processor model and its clock rate. To increase throughput, you are advised to increase virtual machine resources or deploy several virtual machine images and distribute the stream of email messages among them while creating the appropriate record on the DNS server, or use network load balancing services.
