Copying a security profile

If you need to configure a security profile whose settings mostly repeat the values of settings of a previously configured profile, you can reduce configuration time by copying the existing security profile. In the copy, you have to specify the portion of settings that must differ from the settings of the original security profile.

By default, the copied security profile is not assigned to any user account or group of user accounts.

To copy a security profile:

  1. Open Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Management Console.
  2. Select the Security managementSecurity profiles section.

    The Security profiles section contains a list of security profiles configured in Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud.

  3. Select the check box next to the name of the security profile that you want to copy.
  4. Above the list of security profiles, click the Copy button.

    This opens the Copy security profile <security profile name> window.

  5. In the entry field, enter a name for the new security profile.

    You can enter a string up to 255 characters long. The string can contain uppercase and lowercase characters, numerals, whitespaces, dots, commas, minuses, dashes, and underscores. The name of the new security profile must not match the name of one of the existing security profiles.

  6. Click the Copy button.

    If a security profile with the entered name already exists, the Copy button will not be available. To continue copying, enter a name that satisfies the requirements.

The copied security profile will be displayed in the list of security profiles. You can proceed to configure the security profile and assign this security profile to user accounts or groups of user accounts.
