Kaspersky Lab has launched a new line of personal antivirus for Spain. A wide offer that ranges from centralized password management with your program, through the typical protection for computers Windows or Mac, all the way to mobile devices. The intention is to offer simple tools so that users have a real interest in protecting their devices.
A great ignorance
Turns out that Kaspersky Lab has discovered through a study that a vast majority of users feel a great disregard for security and virus attacks. The study shows that in countries like Spain and the United States more than 60% of users have no fear of attacks cybernetic. They consider it very unlikely to suffer a cybercrime, and therefore do not believe it necessary to install an antivirus on their mobile phones, tablets or computers.
New antivirus from Kaspersky
The new distributed range ranges from the widely known Kaspersky Anti-Virus as the most basic option, up to Total Security that offers the maximum benefits, and that covers all devices, including mobiles. All your software is connected to the database of malware from Kaspersky (Kaspersky Security Network), which also uses machine learning to predict new types of attacks before they spread. The most relevant news of the new software are:
- Password manager: Generates secure keys for user accounts in the various services. It is managed centrally with a single key, as for example it already does Google among other applications. Only available for package Total Security.
- Two new functions to prevent attacks from ransomware: One that controls the executable applications that these threats usually come from. Another named System Watcher, which carries out constant ‘backups‘and prevents equipment crash. Available for all types of devices.
- Special module to give security to payments and financial transactions online.
- Parental control, blocking cameras and microphones installed on the devices against attacks, and greater security in access to public wireless networks.
