Kaspersky

Kaspersky Lab is the world's largest privately held vendor of software security products. Headquartered and founded in Russia in 1997, the company works in almost 200 countries and maintains 30 regional offices around the world. They specialize in producing anti-virus protection software for homes, mobile devices, and small offices, and have been recognized by several independent IT tests and review companies as one of the top computer protection companies in the industry. 

The Good

  • Great features
  • Ad blocker
  • Free online backup storage

Kaspersky's anti-virus protection combines the power of your PC with the technology of cloud computing to deliver fast and reliable scanning of all websites and files. Complete with a firewall, anti-phishing, anti-spyware, and anti-spam, it gives you all the basic protection you need along with some attractive features that make it unique.

Kaspersky has an anti-banner that blocks dangerous or annoying ads while you browse the internet. The URL advisor adds color-coded tags to links while you surf, making it easy to spot potential threats on each webpage. Identity protection is included, with a secure keyboard mode that prevents key-loggers from stealing your information. Kaspersky also has an automatic exploit prevention feature that ensures that the vulnerable, outdated applications on your PC won't be compromised.

Other features include free online backup storage, a gamer mode setting, and file encryption. Kaspersky's free password manager download is a great addition to its program. It can securely store up to 15 account passwords and 1 identity card while syncing them across all of your devices (Android, iOS, PC, and Mac).

The Bad

  • Does not support Apple mobile devices
  • URL advisor is lacking
  • Complaints with subscription renewal

Though Mac computers are covered, the company's multi-device anti-virus product does not support Apple mobile devices-only Android. Kaspersky doesn't offer any PC tune-up tools or optimization products. Social network protection is also limited. The URL advisor should catch some threatening links exchanged over social networks, but the protection is not specialized for social media and it won't alert you to privacy concerns within your accounts.

There have been complaints about Kaspersky's automatic subscription renewal, which is pretty standard in this industry. Customers need to be proactive in managing their Kaspersky account preferences.

The Bottom Line

For reliable computer and mobile protection, Kaspersky is a sound choice. Their anti-virus products have been tested and proven to provide excellent-even flawless-protection against a variety of online threats. And while Kaspersky's multi-device package doesn't cater to Apple iOS users, there is now a free downloadable app for secure browsing on iPad and iPhone.

    I upgraded from anti-virus to Internet Security and despite phone calls and emails and even removing a method of payment THAT EXPIRED no less, this company STILL managed to charge me for an unwanted, unauthorized software program. Entering order # just generated error messages, no way to cancel this NO MATTER what I DID!!! Pure, 100% ripoff practices. I will cancel my internet security as well and go to another company.
