Kaspersky Internet Security Solutions ReviewTime: Feb. 18, 2020
Kaspersky's functionality is clearly insufficient, but the basic antivirus engine is accurate and reliable even with zero-day threats.
Every PC needs high quality antivirus protection, but that does not necessarily mean you have to spend a lot of money on the latest security suite. Kaspersky's initial consumption product is Kaspersky Anti-Virus, a simple package that focuses only on the most important security principles: an antivirus to detect new and known malware and filter malicious URLs to keep it away from dangerous links.
With a great discount, you get a Kaspersky Anti-Virus license for one year for three devices for only $ 30, which doubles to $ 60 if you renew. This corresponds to the price of Bitdefender Antivirus Plus.
Kaspersky Internet Security extends Anti-Virus with a firewall, a secure browser to protect your online transactions and protection against webcam piracy. And not only for Windows: Internet Security also offers applications for Mac and Android.
Like Anti-Virus, the price of Kaspersky Internet Security is the most competitive in the lowest price segment. It starts at a reasonable price of $ 40 ($ 80 renewal) for a one-year license on three devices. A three-year license for five devices is initially less impressive at $ 135, when it is renewed at $ 270. The corresponding Bitdefender Internet Security license is $ 170.
Kaspersky Total Security offers parental controls Kaspersky Safe Kids, a password manager for PC, Mac and Android and a Windows backup tool.
The Kaspersky Security Cloud range offers you the same function and some other functions. Kaspersky's adaptive protection technology provides intelligent help when you need it. It warns you, for example, if a password you have selected is too weak, or offers the possibility to activate the VPN if it is connected to an insecure network.
The installation process of Kaspersky is simple, simplified and as fast as we have seen. The links to download the trial version are clearly highlighted on the website and the installer is small. He asked us to accept the license agreement and automatically download and configure the rest of the package.
We did not have a license and we did not give Kaspersky our email address, but we laughed at the installer. All we had to do was click on the link Activate the trial license and our configuration of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2020 was ready to use.
It is important that an antivirus program can protect itself from malware. Therefore, we have completed our first checks by performing some simple tests to see if we can delete or disable Kaspersky files. However, the package is well protected and our attacks did not even scratch Kaspersky's armor.
