Detailed Review

Kaspersky Anti-Virus is a security protection software provided by Kaspersky Lab, a company founded in 1997 and headquartered in Moscow, Russia. The company also has three main offices in various places in the world, including Tokyo (Japan), Woburn (USA), and Paddington (UK). The main focus of the company is to provide effective IT security solutions for consumers, small businesses, and enterprises.

Real-time Protection System

The real-time protection system provided by Kaspersky Anti-Virus provides a basic security protection system with premium features, giving you a full protection against malware, spyware, viruses, trojans, and other potential threats. With the intelligent scanning system that works behind the scenes, you don't need to worry about the security of your PC, since it is always monitored all the time. Small and frequent updates of the virus database ensure that your PC has the latest virus definitions, which prevents your PC from being infected by new and unknown threats. The antivirus software also ensures that your installed software cannot execute actions that may harm your system, since it also monitors the processes done by your software all the time.  

Safe Surfing Technology

There are a lot of potential threats that you can come across while surfing or browsing the internet. These threats have various purposes, such as slowing down your system, make some trouble within your system, or even steal your important or sensitive information. The safe surf feature provided by Kaspersky Anti-Virus allows you to keep your browsing sessions and activities secure from those threats. Malicious websites can fool you into entering your data or sharing your information, whereas all your data is transferred to the hands of professional hackers. This feature alerts you whenever you come across malicious websites, and prevent you from accessing those websites. The anti-blocker feature allows you to unblock the access to your system, in case it has been blocked by malicious software, such as trojans.

System Watcher and Rollback

This feature helps you to keep your system secure at the time when it is infected by malicious software, restoring your system into its former status. It means that when a sign of dangerous attack is detected by the security software, it runs an immediate scan for your system and block the threat from executing further processes in your system. Then, it can also roll back the system status into the condition before it is getting infected by the threat. With always-updated virus database, Kaspersky Anti-Virus is always one step ahead in finding malicious software even when it is not yet being identified by the software, so you can ensure that most malicious attacks can be blocked, prevented, and undone using this software.

Conclusion

Kaspersky Anti-Virus doesn't offer advanced protection system for all of your devices. Instead, it only offers a protection for one PC that you use, without the ability to connect it to your mobile devices. You can use the Kaspersky Total Security if you want to use this software for all of your devices. However, this antivirus software has various features that are not offered by other similar security solutions, such as the feature called System Watcher, which allows you to undo the damage done by most malicious attacks and keep your system healthy and secure. It also ensures that you can keep every activity that you do on your PC, including your browsing activities, safe and secure from all kinds of threats.
