Kaspersky Internet Security Editor's Review

With increasing use of Internet, there is increase in rate of transfer of malware and therefore more threat to your Computer. Security is an essential part of anything, be it your life or be it your PC. If your Personal Computer isn’t secure, it isn’t ‘Personal’. To protect your Computer against malware, identity theft and intrusion, you need a protection system that provides required security to your computer. One of the oldest companies in providing security solutions to many people, be it individuals or businesses is Kaspersky. Kaspersky is a big name in security software industry and Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 costs big as well. Its list price is $79.99 which is pretty much on the costlier side. There are many new and improved features in this version of KIS, let’s see its performance and all of these features one by one.

Kaspersky is available in both boxed and downloadable versions. If you are on a good internet connection, say 2Mbps or better, it should not take more than a few minutes to download it. Installation is pretty simple and straight forward, you don’t have to mess around to many options, you just have to hit next a few times and you are onto activation screen. You can either enter your activation key or activate trial license of 30 days. It didn’t take more than ten minutes for whole installation process (including installation) to be completed.

Kaspersky has completely changed the looks and interface of its 2012 Internet Security edition. Instead of tabs on the left hand side of the interface, it now features sliders at the bottom of the interface, each carrying four options. You can see all options at once by clicking a mall arrow-like button on that green banner.  You have four options below the banner like Help, Support, link to your Kaspersky Account and Activation or license information. There have been many other minor differences to interface, other than this major update, like you now have cloud protection option and settings and reports are easier to see now.

This new user interface works perfectly for both new users and experienced ones. Many of the options, that can confuse new users are hidden and are visible only after clicking settings options. Professional users have more control over the software; they can manage the security by right clicking Kaspersky icon in system tray or directly through interface. There have been a few changes to their Windows Seven gadget as well. It resembles a real desktop computer and it changes its color depending upon risk at which your computer is. Same color changing pattern goes with Kaspersky’s home screen as well.

As far as its functionality is concerned, it is one of the best security products available. Its detection rate is just a little lesser than BitDefender Total Security 2012, which detected 99.5 percent of malware and Kaspersky managed to detect 99.4 percent of malware. As far as detection rate is concerned, Kaspersky was better than all but BitDefender Total Security 2012. It passed false positives test very comfortably. From over 1 million clean files tested, none of detected as infected or malware. Its email and online protection also worked very well as it detected around 95 percent of malware only lesser than BitDefender and Norton.

Performance wise, it was not as good as expected. During our scanning tests, we noticed high CPU usage in custom scan and while cleaning was in progress, CPU usage only managed to rise. Most of the time, CPU usage was well above 75 percent and memory usage was also pretty high.

It also features a very effective Parental Control system; you can restrict usage to file downloads, networking sites, censor word usage, instant messaging and web browsing. You can also define provide data and restrict access to it. Like BitDefender’s Parental Control, it also allows you to define access times and duration.

Its sandboxing mode works pretty well and allows you safe run of shady applications. Apart from running suspected files in sandboxing mode, you can also install the suspicious looking file in the same virtual environment. You can also assign safe run mode to specific applications, means at every future launch, those applications would run in safe mode. Online security also follows the same algorithm. Similar to BitDefender’s auto pilot mode, it has a tool which is known as Automatic Protection tool. It is somewhat different from that of BitDefender’s tool but provides same protection.

There are a few unique tools included in Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 package. One of them is Network Monitoring tool. It allows you to keep watch on your online activities so that you keep a track of uploading and downloading and therefore you can protect yourself from bandwidth theft. There is also a virtual keyboard included to protect your computer against keyloggers.  Its firewall was tested against PCFlank’s Exploits Test and we concluded that it performed well in those tests. Its anti-spyware module also performed as well as any other security software could do.

As its previous edition, this version too does not come equipped with online backup feature. It does come with a rescue disk creator by which you can find and remove malware even without going through normal startup process. You are allowed to use a USB Flash drive or CD or a DVD to create that rescue disk. It also has a tool to repair the irregularities in settings caused by previous infection or malware. It gives you list of possible changes and gives you option to revert them back to their default settings. There is another tool in this year’s Kaspersky Internet Security, its Privacy Cleaner. As suggested by its name, it removes possible trace of what you don’t want to be discovered. Previously used commands, browser cache and cookies can be erased easily and efficiently. Unfortunately, if you want to remove a file permanently from your computer, without any chances of it to be recovered, you’d have to lay your hands either on another standalone program or a computer utility program like TuneUp Utilities or Kaspersky Pure 2012 which costs $10 more than what Kaspersky Internet Security costs.

Positive Points:
Quick Installation and easy activation.
Better user interface that its predecessors.
Efficient detection rates, evident from both independent lab results and tests conducted by us.
Good Virtualization environment which provides effective sandboxing.

Negative Points:
A bit pricey.
Very heavy on system resources which makes some of other running programs unresponsive.
Missing online data backup feature.
File shredding and a few other features not available.

Being a little pricey, it needs to deliver performance and hence protection which justifies its price and it does that to very good effect. It comes with a strong detection engine that provides detection rate better than most of security suites available in the market. There are a few features which are missing and you’d need to spend a little extra to use them, if you want to, either by using a standalone program or upgrading to Kaspersky Pure. This security software has better interface and provides better control of the software to experts and it is suitable for beginners as well due to its neat and clean interface. Overall, if you need security software that does its job to perfection, then Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 is one of the best software available. If you want the missing features badly, then you should definitely look for other security suites in similar price and performance range
