Kaspersky offers all-new PC security products
Dubai, August 7, 2011
Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content and threat management solutions, has launched the 2012 versions of its home user products that offer protection for the PC against the rapid growth of new threats.
The all-new Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS) 2012 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus (KIV) 2012 incorporate the most advanced and effective protection technologies: a sandbox for launching suspicious applications, a program activity monitoring module, a script emulator, a cloud-based reputation database, a virtual keyboard plus many other features, a statement said.
In the 2012 versions of Kaspersky Lab's home user products, cloud-based technologies, the cutting-edge of antivirus development, have been improved.
By regularly exchanging information between products installed on users’ machines and the centralized databases in the cloud, the most up-to-date threat information is made available for the protection of users.
In addition to superior protection from the cloud, the new product versions also demonstrate how they do it. The main program window provides users with in-depth information about which cloud components are active and how they are protecting users’ computers and personal data.
According to Kaspersky Lab, the combination of cloud protection and security software running on users’ computers is an ideal way of ensuring multilayered protection.
At present, this hybrid approach is the best option in terms of combating the wide range of threats out there in the wild. That is why both of the new product versions feature improved cloud technologies and enhanced program capabilities.
“This launch comes as an assurance on our commitment to our loyal customers in the Middle East region, who are becoming more and more tech savvy and security aware, especially with the increase use of social media and online services. The products are now available in all authorized stores,” said Tarek Kuzbari, managing director, Kaspersky Lab Middle East and Turkey.
“Being aware of the availability of pirated KL software in the region, our team have initiated a number of measures aimed at providing Middle East consumers with the supported and official products which are tailor made for the local needs.”
“Our paramount priority is the protection of our customers from buying illegally imported products and indirectly lending their support to pirates in this respect. And we want to ensure that channel partners stay well away from grey imports and turn to legitimate business practices instead,” he added.
Kaspersky Lab has put together an anti-grey market drive that comprises a range of concrete steps designed to tackle the issue at its root. The security firm will only activate codes designed for use within the Middle East region, it said in a statement. – TradeArabia News Service
