    Real-time, proactive and cloud technologies detect new, emerging and unknown threats

    Features

    • New! Safe Money – adds more protection for financial transactions
      Whenever you log onto an online shopping, banking or payment website, Kaspersky’s new Safe Money technology offers automatic protection. It checks the website’s URL against a list of secure sites, verifies the site’s security certificate and also scans your PC’s operating system to check for any related vulnerabilities. Safe Money also automatically suggests that the site is opened in the special Safe Money mode – to help further protect your personal data against theft.

    • New! Secure Keyboard & improved Virtual Keyboard – help protect your identity
      When you open a bank or payment website – or enter a password on a website – Kaspersky’s Secure Keyboard technology automatically prevents keyloggers from accessing the personal data that you type on your keyboard. Furthermore, Kaspersky’s improved Virtual Keyboard technology lets you input confidential data without even using a keyboard – so your information is safe from capture by ‘screen scrapers’, keyloggers and more.

    • New! Automatic Exploit Prevention – defends against the exploitation of vulnerabilities
      Malware is increasingly targeting vulnerabilities within commonly-used PC applications. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security includes a new technology – Automatic Exploit Prevention – that blocks malware from exploiting such vulnerabilities. Automatic Exploit Prevention scans your PC for vulnerabilities and controls the actions of any programs that have vulnerabilities. It blocks exploits by:

      • Controlling the launch of executable files by any applications that have vulnerabilities
      • Analysing the behaviour of executable files – to identify any similarities with known malicious programs
      • Restricting the actions that can be undertaken by applications that have vulnerabilities
    • New! Password Manager* now includes Password Sync
      Kaspersky’s Password Manager not only enhances your security – by generating secure, random passwords – it also automatically logs you onto your website accounts and applications, including Skype and Instant Messenger. Now, with the new Password Sync feature, Kaspersky PURE 3.0 securely stores your passwords online in the cloud. With Password Sync, you can safely access your passwords from any PC and be automatically logged onto your chosen websites and applications.

    • New! Online backup – makes data backup even more convenient
      If your PC fails, Kaspersky’s flexible backup features mean you can still access your documents, photos, music and other files. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 lets you backup your data onto your hard drive, removable media or a range of other physical storage. In addition, the new Online Backup feature allows you to store up to 2 GB of backup files online, via Dropbox – so you can use any PC with an Internet connection to access your backup.

    • Secure vaults – protect your most precious data
      With Kaspersky PURE 3.0, it’s easy to create a special, secure vault to store your most valuable information. Kaspersky encrypts all data that is stored in the vault and access to the vault is password-protected – to defend the vault against hacker attacks.

    • PC Cleanup tools – add security and help you preserve PC performance
      Easy-to-use PC Cleanup tools add to your security by letting you ‘shred’ deleted documents and delete your Internet browsing history. This helps to protect your privacy, prevent attacks by cybercriminals and keep your PC running more smoothly.

        Protecting you against all types of malware – including computer viruses, Trojan viruses, worms, spyware, rootkits, bots and more
        Combining Kaspersky’s powerful security technologies on your PC with the real-time efficiency of Kaspersky’s cloud-assisted service - so you benefit from a faster, more effective response to new malware and Internet threats
        Providing Kaspersky’s new ZetaShield technology – for even better protection against unknown malware and exploits

    Protecting you against suspicious websites and identity thieves – Improved!
    The Web can be a dangerous place, with many infected websites and cybercriminals using the Internet to steal personal information. To help keep you and your sensitive data safe on the Internet, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014:
        Shows colour-coded icons alongside all web links – to inform you about links and subsequent pages that are suspicious or dangerous

        Scans incoming and outgoing email messages – and blocks harmful content

    Preventing the exploitation of vulnerabilities on your PC – Improved!
    If any programs on your PC – including its operating system or any applications – have not been updated with the latest patches and fixes, those programs could act as an entry point for malware attacks. Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 scans your PC for such vulnerabilities and:
        Assesses and controls the behaviour of operating systems and applications that contain vulnerabilities to prevent harm being caused to your PC or your precious data

    Helping to maintain your PC’s performance – Improved!

     Key Features
    Real-time anti-malware – protects you against new and emerging threats
    By combining traditional, proactive and cloud-based anti-malware technologies, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 delivers real-time protection against the latest malware threats:

    Antivirus protection
    Kaspersky’s award-winning antivirus software defends your PC against all types of malware, including:

        Computer viruses
        Trojan viruses
        Worms
        Rootkits
        Spyware
        Bots… and more

    Cloud-assisted technology enables real-time protection
    When hackers and cybercriminals release new malware, it takes time for security vendors to update their antivirus databases with a new malware signature that protects against the new threat. However, Kaspersky uses cloud-assisted technologies to ensure its customers’ PCs are protected during the period before a new malware signature has been produced.
    The cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) continually gathers information about new malware threats from millions of consenting users’ computers across the world. Armed with this information, Kaspersky helps to secure your PC against the very latest threats – without you having to wait for a new malware signature to be released.
    Whether you consent to KSN automatically collecting threat information from your computer – or whether you prefer not to permit data collection – your PC will still be able to benefit from KSN’s extremely rapid response to new and emerging malware.

    Preventing the exploitation of software vulnerabilities
    If your PC’s operating system – or the applications running on your PC – contain any vulnerabilities because they’ve not had the latest software patches or fixes applied, Kaspersky’s Automatic Exploit Prevention technology will:

        Control the launch of executable files from applications that contain vulnerabilities
        Assess how executable files behave – identifying similarities with malware programs
        Restrict how vulnerable applications are allowed to operate

    Protection against screen lockers
    Blocker Trojan viruses can prevent you from using your PC until you pay ‘ransom’ money for the blocker’s restrictions to be removed. If a cybercriminal ever uses a Blocker Trojan to try and take control of your PC, just activate Kaspersky’s protection against screen lockers and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 will:

        Halt any dangerous processes
        Launch the relevant virus treatment procedures

    System Watcher
    In the unlikely event of your PC becoming infected with malware, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 includes Kaspersky’s unique System Watcher technology that:
        Detects dangerous behaviour on your computer
        Enables you to roll back or undo most types of malicious action

        Minimal impact on performance
        Quicker installation and updates for your Kaspersky antivirus software

    Web protection – secures you against sophisticated, web-based malware attacks
    Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 includes computer security technologies that help to ensure you can surf the web and be confident that you won’t be affected by dangerous websites:
    URL Advisor
    By using cloud-based data about the reputation of websites, the Kaspersky URL Advisor alerts you about links to suspicious and dangerous sites. It provides colour-coded icons that show you whether a link is ‘trusted’, ‘suspicious’ or ‘dangerous’.
    File Advisor
    With just a single mouse click, Kaspersky’s File Advisor uses cloud-based technologies to check the safety of any file you wish to access.

        Faster start-up
