Kaspersky Antivirus Review

Written by Jason Lee -

Product Overview

400 million users protected from over one million malware attacks in 200 countries around the world. With impressive figures like that, it's no wonder that people use Kaspersky.

Having been in the antivirus security game since 1997, Kaspersky ranks high from independent test lab results. This means you can rely on the excellent protection offered and cut your risk to online threats.

Security

Kaspersky Total Security is true to its word in providing total security. Kaspersky keeps your computer safe from viruses, malware, spyware and other cyber crimes.

All security updates offered from Kaspersky are free, so long as your subscription remains active.

Along with the traditional protection from threats, Kaspersky also comes with multi-device security. Never before has it been this easy to protect all your devices from viruses and malware. The number of devices you can protect is based on your subscription plan, so be sure to get the right one for you.

Kaspersky also boasts excellent protective measures while you browse websites online. Secure Connection helps keep your computer safe when on a public WiFi network. Likewise, Safe Money helps keep your online banking safe by adding extra protection when you're banking or paying online.

Performance

The main focus with Kaspersky is security optimized for performance. The majority of its tools run in the background with little to no interaction required. Kaspersky is so good at working behind the scenes, you forget it is even working until it notifies you of updates or detected threats.

System scans can be quite lengthy, with later scans making noticeable improvements. Given the high rankings from independent lab tests, the time crunch is worth the virus preventions. It goes without saying that no one wants viruses, and this is a small price to pay for it.

A gamer mode for Kaspersky is available for those who do not want their gameplay interrupted or have lag introduced from scans. This lets you game in peace with no distractions or sudden interruptions.

Final Verdict

The interface is simple but the protections offered are not. Kaspersky gives you everything you could need in an antivirus software, and nothing you don't. One of the great features is that it runs in the background without you knowing it's there.

While some of the scans did take a little longer than other antivirus software, the detection rate makes up for this. It's a great value for money and the benefits make it worth every penny.
