Kaspersky Lab recently disclosed details about the latest security software releases for 2012 from their company. The Anti-Virus 2012 and Internet Security 2012 combine both cloud-hosted and local PC protection. The company claim this release to be the most advanced PC security set-up in the world, able to protect users from the growing threat of malware found on Twitter, Facebook and serch engine results, and dreaded “Black Hole SEO”.
The press release notes the following key features across the two security software suites:
– Cloud-based protection. The exchange of information between computer-installed software and centralized, cloud-based databases ensures that users are always protected against the very latest threats and spam. Protection arrives within seconds without users having to store a large amount of data on their computers. Databases located in the cloud also provide real-time protection against new spam emails. This helps Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 to adapt quickly to ever-changing spammer tactics.
– Internet link threat warning. These warnings alert users to links that could pose a threat, for example by redirecting users to fraudulent, malicious or spammer websites.
– New user interface. The user interface remains straightforward, intuitive and user-friendly, but now also includes animated graphics.
– A program activity monitoring module. “System Watcher” tracks program activity. If suspicious behavior is detected, the offending program and related applications can be removed, and changes made to the PC undone with a single click.
Eugene Kaspersky, CEO and co-founder of Kaspersky Lab said, “More than 300 million users worldwide depend on Kaspersky Lab to protect their computers and online activity. We are committed to providing them with the best protection available. The new 2012 versions take home PC security to the next level. They feature world-class technologies that harness the power of the cloud, but also ensure PCs are fully protected when they are not connected to the internet. This hybrid approach will combat even the most complex of threats. At the same time, these products are now simpler, faster and more user-friendly than ever before.”
