Today Kaspersky Lab introduced its new 2012
lineup of PC security software for consumers in North America. Kaspersky Internet
Security 2012 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 offer a new hybrid approach by combining its sophisticated
security software that runs on users’ PCs with cloud-based intelligence and
cyber security information.
Kaspersky Lab’s cloud-based technology
is a global database that is continuously updated by our anti-malware
researchers with the answers to the latest security threats around the world.
With malware continuing to grow and become more prevalent, Kaspersky Lab
protects users from today’s threats in real-time by instantly delivering
security updates to our worldwide network of users, ensuring they are protected
as threats attempt to spread.
Why are these new technologies needed? Because
the rate of malware and its sophistication continue to increase. Here’s proof:
The primary culprit was an increased
number of Fake anti-virus detections (or pop-ups) that were sent to trick users
into clicking on them.
Globally, Kaspersky Lab blocked more than 208
million attacks, and detected 112,000 unique malicious programs during this
Key Product Highlights
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 and Kaspersky Internet
Security 2012 offer 28 newly-refined technologies. Examples of protection
technologies that have benefited the most from our Hybrid Protection strategy
Kaspersky Anti-Phishing and Anti-Spam –by using real-time data from the cloud, Kaspersky Anti-Phishing
scanners will keep the latest con-artist emails from reaching your inbox, while
Kaspersky Anti-Spam works even more efficiently than ever to counter spam.
File Advisor –
An additional layer of protection that determines the trustworthiness of any
file on your computer by checking its worldwide reputation with a single
click. If our experts or other Kaspersky Lab customers have discovered
the file is malicious, you won’t be tricked into opening it.
URL Advisor –
Our global database of website safety statistics is immediately at your
disposal, and Kaspersky Lab customers will instantly know if a link leads to a
trusted, malicious, or questionable website before they click. For
example, when users perform a web search in their favorite browser, the
resulting links are clearly flagged with a red, gray or green icon, so users
can easily avoid dangerous websites.
System Watcher with advanced Roll Back functionality – By automatically monitoring the
modifications made to your PC, Kaspersky Lab’s 2012 products can now easily
undo or rollback damage caused by malware. Most actions from a malicious program – even previously unknown malware – can
be canceled and reversed, including the restoration of infected files back to
their previous condition, eliminating newly-created malicious data, or erasing
any changes malicious attacks have made to sensitive registry files.
