Device with Network Agent installed can be used as distribution point. In this mode, Network Agent can perform the following functions:
Distribute updates (these can be retrieved either from the Administration Server or from Kaspersky Lab servers). In the latter case, the Download updates to the repositories of distribution points task must be created for the device serving as the distribution point.
Deployment of distribution points in an organization's network pursues the following objectives:
A distribution point is assigned for an administration group. In this case, the distribution point's scope includes all devices within the administration group and all of its subgroups. However, the device acting as the distribution point may not be included in the administration group to which it has been assigned.
You can assign a distribution point a connection gateway. In this case, devices in the distribution point's scope will be connected to the Administration Server through the gateway, not directly. This mode can be useful in scenarios that do not allow the establishment of a direct connection between devices with Network Agent and an Administration Server.
