The result of this hybrid combination is unmatched security that wonâ€™t slow you down, leaving you free to enjoy the Internet and your PC to their full potential.
Combining our Core Protection with Premium Internet Threat Defense
Kaspersky Internet Security combines all of the essential protection of our leading antivirus software with additional layers of defense against hackers, malicious applications and websites, identity theft, spam, and even the most complex Internet threats. Thereâ€™s no better protection for when youâ€™re surfing the web, banking and shopping online, social networking, and enjoying the Internet to its full potential. Plus, with intelligent scanning, smart updates, and an incredibly user-friendly interface, Kaspersky Internet Security is the easiest, least intrusive way to ensure youâ€™re always safe.
Rapid, Real-Time Reaction to New Threats
New Internet threats emerge with lightening speed, and the latest Kaspersky technologies are there to protect you with real-time data from the cloud. Plus, youâ€™re linked to millions of participating Kaspersky Security Network users around the world. When suspicious or unrecognizable data is encountered on those systems, itâ€™s automatically analyzed by our lab, and real-time, protective updates are issued to all of our users, giving you the ultimate protection as new threats emerge.
Kasperskyâ€™s best-in-class, two-way firewall provides a secure perimeter around your PC to keep hackers out. But it also provides protection in the opposite direction by controlling whatâ€™s transmitted from your PC to the outside world, stopping malware from sending out your personal information. Itâ€™s one more layer of defense keeping your personal information from falling into the wrong hands.
Spam can be more than an annoyanceâ€”it can be a vehicle for delivering malware to your PC. Kaspersky utilizes the latest cloud technologies and advanced behavioral analysis to quickly and efficiently recognize and block new spam.
Proactive Detection of Unknown Malware
The latest Kaspersky technologies proactively seek out suspicious activity on your systemâ€”without draining performance. Potential threats are monitored and analyzed with real-time, cloud technologies, and dangerous actions are completely blocked before they can cause any harm.
Rollback of Malware Changes
Kasperskyâ€™s multiple layers of protection are your best defense against cybercrime, delivering premium protection from new and emerging threats. And if an unknown piece of malware does manage to find its way onto your system, Kasperskyâ€™s unique System Watcher will detect the dangerous behavior and allow you to undo most unwanted and harmful activity.
Kasperskyâ€™s innovative Safe Run mode provides an added layer of protection for running suspicious or unknown applications, files, emails, and websites. The â€œsafe desktopâ€ mimics your actual desktop, but is completely walled-off from your data and PC settings, so you can test-drive anything suspicious with total confidence that no harm will come to your system. *Works on 32-bit operating systems
One-Click Security Checks
The security status and reputation of any application, executable, or script is now at your fingertips. With a single mouse-click, File Advisor uses cloud technologies to instantly send you information such as filename, size, date created and last modified, threat rating, digital signature, geography, distribution, and other Kaspersky usersâ€™ level of trust. Now you can make more informed decisions about the files youâ€™d like to access.
Safer Surfing with URL Advisor and Safe Surf
Kaspersky Internet Security acts as your personal security guide as you surf the web. Our updated URL Advisor now adds color-coded tags to all web links within search results to advise you of the danger level of the link and subsequent pages. And our customizable Safe Surf alerts you to suspicious sites, helping you make informed decisions about where itâ€™s safe to share your personal information.
Online Banking Mode*
Online banking is incredibly convenient, and Kaspersky makes it safer than ever. Simply enable Kasperskyâ€™s unique Online Banking mode and the financial websites you access will automatically open in a special walled-off environment. This extra layer of security keeps hackers out and ensures your financial information is always safe.
*Works on 32-bit operating systems
Kasperskyâ€™s unique Application Control uses real-time, cloud-based threat intelligence to determine security privileges for every application you launchâ€”without impacting system performance. Unknown or suspicious applications are watched or restricted from potentially-harmful actions, and potentially dangerous applications are completely blocked from harming your system.
One of the easier ways for cybercriminals to find a hole in your protection is through application and system vulnerabilities that havenâ€™t been updated with the latest fixes. Kaspersky Internet Security finds these vulnerabilities, and assists in patching the holes in your protection before they can be exploited by viruses, spyware, and identity thieves.
Secure Social Networking for You and Your Children
The latest Kaspersky technologies allow you to fully enjoy social networking, knowing your Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter accounts wonâ€™t receive malicious links or software from your friends. Plus, you can ensure your childrenâ€™s safety by controlling which contacts are allowed for communication, monitoring messaging logs, and specifying any personal information you want blocked from transmitting.
Kasperskyâ€™s unique Geo Filter lets you block content from specified countries. If you have no interest in content from non-English peaking countries â€“ which include many with a history of producing malwareâ€”you can prevent that potential malware from reaching your machine. Now you donâ€™t have to worry about a perfectly legitimate and trusted English-language website being compromised and sending you malware from an overseas server.
Network Attack Blocker
Kaspersky scans all incoming network traffic for activities that are characteristic of a network attack. If an attempt to attack your computer is detected, Kaspersky blocks any and all network activity from the attacking computer.
Rootkits are designed to conceal system infections, and can be very difficult to detect by common antivirus tools. Kaspersky Internet Security uses special methods specifically designed to detect rootkits before they install, ensuring youâ€™re protected from this advanced threat.
Unmatched Usability with a New Interface
Weâ€™ve taken a fresh, new approach to our user interface, ensuring itâ€™s easier than ever for you to manage your PC security. Youâ€™ll find instant visibility into your protection status, one-click access to the features you use the most, and a detailed guide to how our cloud technologies are working for you.
Easy-Access to Security Status
Feel confident in your protection status with a quick glance at your desktop. Kasperskyâ€™s Desktop Security Gadget* prominently displays if your security is up-to-date, or if an action is required. Customizable buttons allow you to have the protection features you use the most close-at-hand. And you can drag and drop files onto the gadget for easy, on-the-spot virus scanning.
*Works with Windows Vista & Windows 7
Installation on Infected PCs
If your PC is so severely infected that no antivirus software can be installed on it, Kaspersky will download a proprietary tool to scan and eliminate all threats. If the damage is so severe that the operating system canâ€™t even launch correctly, the Kaspersky Internet Security installation CD can be used as a bootable Rescue Disk to detect and eliminate all infections. You can then quickly and easily proceed with the productâ€™s installation.
Optimized for Netbooks
Kaspersky Internet Security supports screen resolutions found on netbooks â€“ including 1024x600 and 1366x768 â€“ with no impact to system performance.
Free Technical Support
Free North American-based technical support is available via telephone, email, and online chat. Additional support includes Kaspersky knowledge base, an online database of detailed answers to questions about installing and using Kaspersky Lab products.
