Yesterday, Kaspersky Lab announced the release of their Internet Security 2014 and Anti-Virus 2014 security solutions for home use. These two flagship products offer a host of new features and upgrades to augment their previous version.
What’s new with the 2014 version are the Trusted Applications Mode, Anti-Blocker, and ZETA Shield features. These versions also improved on the Safe Money for protection while doing online banking and Parental Control features. KIS 2014 and KAV 2014 are also now optimized for Windows 8 with fast GUI response and lower resource consumption.
Trusted Applications Mode gives you better control as to which application you can safely run or install in your machine based on Kaspersky Whitelisting Service. This is particularly useful for those pop-up malware windows that look like real antivirus program and will prompt you to click Install.
Anti-Blocker will protect you against Trojans that restrict access to your system and demand money for the restriction to be lifted. These usually happens during drive-by downloads where you visit an infected site and will install a malware into your machine without your knowledge.
ZETA Shield is used to combat against zero-day exploits and targeted attacks. What Kaspersky does is scan the data stream for code fragments characteristic of exploits built into legitimate files.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 is made for those who wants protection both offline and online. If your machine is not connected online, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 should do the trick.
Pricing for these products are as follows:
