Automatic installation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security updates on devices

You can configure automatic updates of databases and software modules of Kaspersky Endpoint Security on client devices.

To configure download and automatic installation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security updates on devices:

  1. In the console tree, select the Tasks folder.
  2. Create an Update task in one of the following ways:
    • By selecting CreateTask in the context menu of the Tasks folder in the console tree.
    • By clicking the Create a Task button in the workspace of the Tasks folder.

    The New Task Wizard starts.

  3. In the Select the task type window of the Wizard, select Kaspersky Endpoint Security as the task type, then select Update as the task subtype, and click Next.
  4. Follow the rest of the Wizard instructions.

    After the Wizard is done, an update task for Kaspersky Endpoint Security is created. The newly created task is displayed in the list of tasks in the workspace of the Tasks folder.

  5. In the workspace of the Tasks folder, select an update task that you have created.
  6. By selecting Properties in the context menu of the task.
  7. By selecting the Settings section In the task properties window.

    In the Settings section, you can define the update task settings in local or offline mode:

    • Update settings in local mode: Connection is established between the device and the Administration Server.
    • Update settings in offline mode: No connection is established between Kaspersky Security Center and the device (for example, when the device has no Internet connection).
  8. Click the Settings button to select the update source.
  9. Select the Download application module updates check box to download and install software module updates together with the application databases.

    If the check box is selected, Kaspersky Endpoint Security notifies the user about available software module updates and includes software module updates in the update package while running the update task. Configure the use of update modules:

    • Install critical and approved updates. If any updates are available for software modules, Kaspersky Endpoint Security automatically installs them with the Critical status; the remaining updates will be installed after they are approved by the administrator.

      To approve software updates:

      1. In the console tree, open the Software updates folder.
      2. In the update properties window, in the General section, in the Update approval field, set the Approved value.

        The default value is Undefined.

        If you are configuring the properties of an update for Kaspersky Lab applications that cannot be uninstalled and in the Update approval field you set the Declined value, Kaspersky Security Center will not uninstall this update from devices on which it had been previously installed.

        If an update for Kaspersky Lab applications cannot be uninstalled, this property is displayed in the update properties window, on the General tab, in the Installation requirements.

    • Install approved updates only. If any software module updates are available, Kaspersky Endpoint Security installs them after their installation is approved; they will be installed locally through the application interface or via Kaspersky Security Center.

    If updating the software module requires reviewing and accepting the terms of the End User License Agreement, the application installs updates after the terms of the License Agreement have been accepted by the user.

  10. Select the Copy updates to folder check box in order for the application to save downloaded updates to the folder specified by clicking the Browse button.
  11. Click OK.

When the Update task is running, the application sends requests to Kaspersky Lab update servers.

Some updates require installation of the latest versions of plug-ins of managed applications.
