For reduced response times, increased efficiency and streamlined support for remote sites, Kaspersky Security Center uses Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Windows Desktop Sharing technology (used in Windows Remote Assistance). Remote connection to client computers through the Network Agent allows full administrator access to the data and applications installed on the client, even if the client TCP and UDP ports are closed.
An authorization mechanism prevents unauthorized remote access. For traceability and auditing, all activities performed during a remote access session are logged.
By using remote diagnostic tools you also can connect to computer management tool of Windows and access target computers Windows Event Logs, generate System Information, process dump files and much more!
Vulnerability and Patch Management
Automated software scanning enables rapid vulnerability detection, prioritization and remediation. Patches and updates can be delivered automatically, in the shortest timeframes2, for Microsoft and non-Microsoft software. Administrator is notified about patch installation status.

Guest devices can be detected and provided with Internet access. License control provides visibility into number of nodes and expiry date
3rd Party software management functions allows you to remotely deploy / uninstall any kind of software silently within minutes in your network. Thanks to distribution points, you can easily distribute software packages to your remote offices / branches by consuming minimum bandwidth possible.
