PC Magazine, By Neil Rubenking

Bottom Line: Antivirus is the star component in Kaspersky Internet Security (2015), with top ratings from all the independent labs. All of the other components range from good to great. It's a strong suite. The solution earned 4/5 stars.

The exact components that go into a security suite vary, but most include antivirus, firewall, spam filtering, and parental control. To those core components, Kaspersky Internet Security (2015) ($79.95 for three licenses) adds accurate phishing detection, a hardened browser for financial transactions, useful tuneup tools, and more. It's a solid suite.

Like Kaspersky's stand-alone antivirus, this suite's main window is divided into four large panels. In the suite, these panels let you launch an antivirus scan, check for updates, configure the Safe Money hardened browser, or dig into parental control settings.

Clicking the link for "Additional tools" brings up the same collection of bonus tools found in the antivirus. The suite adds real-time reporting from the firewall's application- and network-control modules, as well as a summary of recent protective activity. Overall, the user interface is coherent and easy to navigate. Read more.
