Developer Kaspersky provides three types of anti-malware products: Anti-Virus, Internet Security and PURE, with each one providing more features than the last. Internet Security is the version delivering premium protection to computers against Trojans, worms, viruses, backdoors, rootkits, dialers and other kind of web-based threats.

Speedy installer and user-friendly interface

The installation process is fast and uncomplicated, as the tool automatically sets up all components and does not give users the possibility of excluding any of them.

The developer preserves the same pleasant and easy-to-navigate interface for all three av products, where all primary modules can be seamlessly accessed from the main menu via large buttons.

Core protection via multiple and customizable scan modes

Kaspersky integrates multiple scan modes that can be chosen by taking into account the target: Full Scan thoroughly analyzes each part of the computer and should be used on occasion to do a complete checkup, while Quick Scan looks only in critical areas and common locations and should be used on a regular basis to keep the PC in shape. Custom Scan verifies only files, folders and drives suspected by the user, while Removable Drives Scan evaluates external disks as soon as they are plugged into the machine to rule out any dangerous or unknown items. Scan jobs can be scheduled to run regularly and without user assistance.

If unsatisfied with the default configuration, users may tweak scan settings regarding the real-time guard, security level, action on threat detection (separately for removable drives on connection), scan scope, user rights, threats and exclusions, anti-phising, self-defense, network settings, notifications, along with reports and the quarantine.

Advanced protection via extra layers of security

Compared to Kaspersky Anti-virus which offers only essential protection against malware, the Internet Security edition brings additional safety measures to the table. Safe Money stores financial information in a secured vault when performing online transactions, a two-way firewall is designed to block hacker attacks, while another tool prevents suspicious applications from doing any damage by investigating their behavior.

Additionally, the av utility implements a virtual keyboard to ensure data protection against stealthy keyloggers and screen capturing software when typing, a similar security module protects info when using the physical keyboard, a parental control module enables parents to oversee and restrict online access to their children by creating an "allow" schedule, an anti-spam utility weeds out malware-prone or unwanted emails, and the last security function blocks banner advertisements when surfing the web.

Performance and conclusion

Our latest tests have placed Kaspersky in a top position in the antivirus software food chain, thanks to very good statistics concerning virus detection ratio and system resources consumption, along with diverse and effective extra security layers. A favorite among first-time and advanced users alike, Internet Security does not disappoint. The app can be updated offline with the help of Kaspersky Updater.
