About Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows (hereinafter also referred to as Kaspersky Endpoint Security) provides comprehensive computer protection against various types of threats, network and phishing attacks.

Each type of threat is handled by a dedicated component. Components can be enabled or disabled independently, and their settings can be configured.

The following application components are control components:

The operation of control components is based on the following rules:

The following application components are protection components:

In addition to the real-time protection that the application components provide, we recommend that you regularly scan the computer for viruses and other threats. This helps to rule out the possibility of spreading malware that was not detected by protection components, for example, due to a low security level.

To keep computer protection up to date, you must update the databases and modules that the application uses. The application is updated automatically by default, but if necessary, you can update the databases and application modules manually.

The following tasks are provided in Kaspersky Endpoint Security:

Remote administration through Kaspersky Security Center

Kaspersky Security Center makes it possible to remotely start and stop Kaspersky Endpoint Security on a client computer, manage tasks, configure application settings as well as perform file encryption and full disk encryption.

File encryption functionality lets you encrypt files and folders that are stored on local computer drives. The full disk encryption functionality allows encryption of hard drives and removable drives.

Service functions of the application

Kaspersky Endpoint Security includes a number of service functions. Service functions are provided for keeping the application up to date, expand its functionality, and assist the user with operating the application.

If the application returns errors or hangs up during operation, it may be restarted automatically.

If the application encounters recurring errors that cause the application to crash, the application performs the following operations:

  1. Disables control and protection functions (encryption functionality remains enabled).
  2. Notifies the user that the functions have been disabled.
  3. Attempts to restore the application to a functional state after updating anti-virus databases or applying application module updates.

The application receives information on recurring crash-inducing errors using special-purpose algorithms developed by Kaspersky Lab experts. This information is required for application recovery.
