Kaspersky Claims 40 Seconds To Deliver Protection

  • Can be used with touch-screen devices
  • Will not slow down performance
  • Promises simple installation

Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 are built around the concept of Hybrid Protection, which harnesses the power of the cloud as well as the security technologies installed on your PC to reduce the average protection delivery time to 40 seconds.

Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) retains real time data about malicious and suspicious activity from the PCs of more than 30 million voluntary members from 213 countries.

Updated features include simplified processes for installation and activation, enhanced threat protection with an improved version of ‘System Watcher’, and the introduction of File Adviser that updates users on the security of individual files.

The 2012 versions warn Internet users of unsafe links and which will redirect users to fraudulent, malicious and spammer websites. The products receive the most up-to-date information available about undesirable Internet resources directly from the cloud, including websites with adult, violent and other similarly unsavoury content.

Both products are designed for minimal impact on a computer’s running speed and program operations. The products have been streamlined for day-to-day use when surfing the Internet, searching for and viewing web pages, making VoIP calls, watching HD videos and playing online games, etc.

The intelligent update system downloads updates for active product components only and launches them immediately after they have been plugged in. That means that antivirus database components are kept up-to-date and download traffic is minimised. The update launch mode has been adapted to suit typical laptop and desktop work modes and will not slow down performance when operating system activity is resumed or a user launches programs.

The new products can also be used with touch-screen devices. Product installation has been optimised, minimising any conflicts with incompatible security software. The steps for activating and purchasing licenses can now be found in one window.
