Organizations whose network infrastructure does not have an Internet connection can receive KSMG database updates through Kaspersky Security Center. Database updates are downloaded to the Kaspersky Security Center repository deployed in the infrastructure of the organization and from there, forwarded to KSMG.

This section contains instructions for configuring the receipt of KSMG database updates using the following applications:

  • Kaspersky Security Center 14.2 Windows
  • Kaspersky Security Center 15 Linux

Configuring the receipt of KSMG database updates through Kaspersky Security Center involves the following steps:

  1. Installing Network Agent via Kaspersky Security Center on servers where KSMG is installed

    Network Agent enables the interaction between the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server and the KSMG node. Network Agent must be installed on all nodes where you want to be updating KSMG databases.

    For detailed information about the Network Agent, please refer to the Kaspersky Security Center 14.2 Windows Help or the Kaspersky Security Center 15 Linux Help.

  2. Checking the list of managed devices in Kaspersky Security Center

    All nodes of the KSMG cluster on which the Network Agent is installed must be displayed in the list of managed devices in Kaspersky Security Center.

    For detailed information about managed devices, please refer to the Kaspersky Security Center 14.2 Windows Help or the Kaspersky Security Center 15 Linux Help.

  3. Creating a task for downloading updates to the repository on the Kaspersky Security Center server

    For detailed information, please refer to the Kaspersky Security Center 14.2 Windows Help or the Kaspersky Security Center 15 Linux Help.

  4. Performing the task for downloading updates to the repository on the Kaspersky Security Center server

    Kaspersky Security Center runs the KSMG database update download task in accordance with the schedule specified in the task properties. You can run the task manually at any time.

    For detailed information, please refer to the Kaspersky Security Center 14.2 Windows Help or the Kaspersky Security Center 15 Linux Help.

  5. Selecting an update source in KSMG

    To do this, in the KSMG web interface, go to the Settings External services → Database update section, select the Update settings tab and in the Source drop-down list, select Kaspersky Security Center.

As a result, automatic receipt of KSMG database updates via Kaspersky Security Center is configured.
