Activation of Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response is not available in a Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console trial workspace.

To activate Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response:

  1. Make sure that MDR Plug-in is installed and configured in Kaspersky Security Center.
  2. In Kaspersky Security Center Web Console or Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, click Monitoring & reportingMDR.
  3. Click the Activate the solution button.
  4. Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response checks whether the background connection between Kaspersky Security Center Web Console and the Administration Server is enabled and prompts to enable it, if necessary.
  5. If you have not previously created Kaspersky Account, create it and make sure to confirm it by using the confirmation link sent to your email.

    If your previously created Kaspersky Account (i.e. your email) has previously been used to access Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response, it may be associated with another organization's MDR data and can be unavailable to use a new activation code. To use your existing Kaspersky Account for the new activation, contact Technical Support.
    Please note: when Technical Support staff remove the association of your existing Kaspersky Account with another organization's data in MDR, your existing Kaspersky Account can no longer be used to access the other organization's data for which it was previously used.

  6. When your Kaspersky Account is activated, in the MDR section of Kaspersky Security Center, sign in with your Kaspersky Account.
  7. Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response checks whether the account has an active license key for Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response:
    • If no active license key is found, enter the activation code received from Kaspersky, select your region, and then click the Activate button.

      The region that you select affects the choice of language that will be used to provide you the service (Russian or English), and your telemetry data storage location. If you select the Europe or USA/Canada regions, your telemetry data is stored in Northern Europe. If you select the Latin America region, your telemetry data is stored in Brazil. If you select Saudi Arabia, your telemetry data is stored in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. If you select Russia or other regions, your telemetry data is stored in Russia.

    • If an active license key is found and you already have tenants, then select the tenants to which the users of this Administration Server will have access.

    An enabled background connection is required for Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response performance.

  8. Read and accept the agreements applicable to the region you select by clicking the Accept button.

    If you do not agree to the terms of the applicable agreements, you will not be able to use Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response.

  9. Read and accept the KSN Statement, enable KSN usage, and then apply the KSN configuration file for your organization.

    If you do not agree to the terms of the KSN Statement, you will not be able to use Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response.

The activation is complete.

To stop using Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response, refer to the Terminating the use of Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response section or contact Technical Support.
