Anti-Virus and Firewall Exclusions and Trusted Apps

The following list of exclusions and trusted apps ar needed to ensure any Anti-Virus coexisting with the Kaseya Agent allow it to function appropriately:


  • <agent working directory>
  • C:\Program Files\Kaseya\
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Kaseya\
  • C:\Program Files\Kaseya Remote Control\
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Kaseya Remote Control\
  • C:\ProgramData\Kaseya\
  • C:\Program Files\Kaseya Live Connect\
  • C:\PCBP (for KDCB)

The agent working directory, by default, is c:\kworking\ but may have been changed by your VSA administrator. Please review this before setting exclusions.

Additionally, having multiple Kaseya Agents on an endpoint will cause the agent to have multiple agent working directories (ie; c:\kworking1\). Ensure that all agent working directories have exclusions set.
