The new version of Kaspersky Internet Security has managed to convince critics of the level of security through the test results of various magazines. High spyware and virus detection rates and minimal load on the system make this program even more effective. Compared to other programs, Kaspersky keeps up with its competitors. Existing vulnerabilities are efficiently identified and the user is notified of any dangerous browser settings or important security updates.
The program was also expanded to include a parental control, Instant protection against new threats, phishing protection and many other features. Communication via social networks is made much more secure through the constant monitoring of internet traffic.
The program works via an automatic configuration, comprehensive self-protection function and a particularly reliable automatic system recovery upon removal of malicious software. Unauthorized changes to settings are completely prevented. The program works unobtrusively in the background and does not interfere with the user, and the interface is also easy to use.
The program reaches a better scan speed by the use of whitelists on which websites are entered as being safe and or well known, which need not be scanned. Thus, the system load is reduced even further and the user will hardly be aware of the scan being in progress. Should there be changes by malware and the like, the automatic rollback restores the PC back to its original state prior to the infection.
