Kaspersky Lab Named a Consumer Product of the Year Award Finalist by The Mass Technology Leadership Council

Woburn, MA – July 25, 2013 - Kaspersky Lab announced today that one of its premier consumer solutions, Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security, is a Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council’s 2013 Consumer Product of the Year Award finalist. Kaspersky Lab was one of only ten companies selected as a finalist in this category for its strong impact on consumers.

Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security provides all the security tools needed to protect a consumer’s digital life - on and off the Internet - including online banking security, password management, and online backup. Kaspersky Lab also knows that cyber-criminals are constantly trying to steal money and personal information. As a result, Kaspersky PURE 3.0 includes Safe Money technology, which verifies that all websites requiring banking, payment, or shopping information are genuine, so users aren’t tricked into entering personal information onto a fake website.

Consumer Product of the Year winners will be chosen through a combination of online voting prior to and text voting the evening of the Awards Gala on September 12, 2013 at the Westin Waterfront, Boston, MA.  As such, online voting for Product of the Year is currently open and voting is highly encouraged.
