Kaspersky – Kaspersky Security Center 12

Kaspersky Security Center version 12.0.0.7734 and Kaspersky Security Center Web Console version 12.0.102 were released on March 18, 2020. Kaspersky Security Center is a single administration console for managing all your Kaspersky security solutions and system administration tools.

 

Kaspersky Security Center 12 Web Console

  • The effective settings of installed Kaspersky applications and the time they were last modified are now displayed in the device properties. The time the latest update was delivered to the device is also displayed in the properties.
  • Reports are combined into groups by subject now. This makes report search easier.
  • The hierarchy of Administration Servers between Kaspersky Security Center installed in your network and Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console is now supported. You can connect the Administration Server running Kaspersky Security Center as slave to the Administration Server running Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console (however, connection of the Administration Server running Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console as slave to the Administration Server installed in your network is not available).
  • Updated interface:
    • The list of plug-ins is displayed in the Console settings menu.
    • The flag-shaped icon informing the user of unread notifications has become more visible.
    • The interface elements that are unsupported by the current license are not displayed.

 

Management of KasperskyOS for Thin Client 1.0

Kaspersky Security Center now allows you to manage devices running KasperskyOS for Thin Client 1.0. The following functions are available:

  • KasperskyOS for Thin Client 1.0 is displayed as the operating system in the device properties.
  • You can manage devices running KasperskyOS for Thin Client 1.0 by using policies.
  • Administration Server processes events from devices running KasperskyOS for Thin Client 1.0.
  • Notifications of updates for KasperskyOS for Thin Client 1.0 are available.
  • Certificates that ensure secure data transmission between the Thin Client and the Administration Server are automatically installed on managed thin clients.

 

Data migration to Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console

If you want to start using Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, you can switch from Kaspersky Security Center installed in your network to Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.

 

Supporting the encryption management in the hierarchy of Administration Servers

Encrypted managed devices can now be moved between Administration Servers. For example, if the user of such a device visits a local office that has a slave Administration Server, the user’s device connects to this slave Administration Server; however, when the user is back at the headquarters office again, the device reconnects to the master Administration Server.

 

Network Agent

  • You can now install Kaspersky applications for macOS and Linux by using Network Agent.
  • In the Hardware registry section, you can view information about the hardware installed on a client device running macOS or Linux.

 

Export to SIEM systems

  • The “Engine” and “Method” fields for virus activity events are now exported to SIEM systems.
  • The following new SIEM systems are supported:
    • IBM QRadar 7.3
    • Micro Focus ArcSight Enterprise Security Manager 7.0

 

Other improvements

  • Improved report generation: if a slave Administration Server is not available within the hierarchy, this is explicitly stated in the report.
  • Implemented the Change Tasks Password Wizard. You can automatically replace your old password with a new one for all tasks in which the account is specified. You can also do this manually in the properties of each task.
