Leading Russia-headquartered provider of cyber threat management solutions, Kaspersky Lab, has unveiled its 2012 lineup for home users in India.
The new editions of Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 incorporate advanced protection technologies including a “sandbox” for launching suspicious applications, a programme activity monitoring module, a script emulator, a cloud-based reputation database and a a virtual keyboard.
New malware at the rate of over 70,000 a day, explained Jagannath Patnaik, Kaspersky’s Director ( Channel Sales) for South Asia, Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 effectively neutralize new threats using non-signature-based behavioral analysis of suspicious programs.
By using its Cloud-based security network, Kaspersky is able to protect against spam, phishing and financial malware directly without straining the on-PC resources of its users, which can concentrate on maintaining virus databases , Mr Patnaik added. This way the company offers its customers the ‘best of both worlds’, buzzword exemplified in the company’s graphical image for this year of a Formula One race car, labelled ‘taxi’.
With just one click, users of Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 can find out about the reputation of any file on a local computer and make an informed decision as to whether or not to use it. All users need to do is right-click on the file's icon and select the 'View file reputation in KSN' menu option. Users will then be shown the file's threat rating as determined by the Kaspersky Security Network cloud service.
In addition to the current launch of home products for the PC, Kasperskly will shortly launch dedicated solutions for mobile phones and tablets, later this year.
The Antivirus product costs Rs 599 for one year one PC, while the Internet Security product which includes antivirus costs Rs 899 .
