Security specialist Kaspersky Lab has launched Kaspersky Total Security – Multi-Device that offers protection for Windows, OS X, Android, iOS and Windows Phone platforms.
The solution is the successor to Kaspersky PURE and is designed to protect against cyber-threats and manage the digital assets of a modern-day internet user.
In the US the product costs $79.95 for one device for one year, $109.95 for one device over two years, $99.95 for three devices over one year or $139.95 for three devices over two years.
UK pricing for Kaspersky Total Security is £49.99 RRP for one device for one year.
Heuristic analysis detects new malware based on suspicious behaviour, Network Attack Blocker for Windows and Mac prevents system infection or data theft due to a network attack, and Wi-Fi Security Notification for Windows warns users if they are trying to connect to an unsecured network.
To protect users’ privacy, a number of technologies have been developed. Webcam Protection for Windows monitors all attempts to access the user’s webcam by any program, while Privacy Protection for Android enables users to configure filtration rules for incoming calls and messages and hide all traces of communication with certain contacts, including calls and SMS.
Additionally, Privacy Cleaner for Windows wipes the history of user activity (like visited pages and downloaded files), while File Shredder removes any file so that it cannot be restored.
A Safe Money solution has been created which confirms that a banking or payment website is legitimate, to ensure that users do not find their transactions hijacked by cybercriminals. Plus, it features a virtual keyboard that prevents keyloggers from accessing the personal data that users type on their own keyboard.
Kaspersky Total Security – Multi-Device also includes Kaspersky Password Manager, which generates secure passwords for the user’s personal accounts and applications, and stores them in an encrypted form to protect against unauthorised access.
To protect personal files, the software integrates a back-up function, either on-demand or scheduled (for Windows only). The copies can be stored on a local or network disk, an FTP server or in Dropbox cloud storage.
Parents can set the time their children are allowed to spend online, restrict the applications they can run and control what information they share on the web.
Finally, the new software is integrated with the My Kaspersky portal. Once a user’s account is registered on the portal, they can see the status of all devices with Kaspersky Lab solutions in a single window. This includes activation and expiration dates of the security solutions installed on them, the time of the last check and the databases status.
A built-in My Kaspersky Store also allows users to download and install Kaspersky Lab’s free solutions and buy paid products.
“The rapid development of IT technology has resulted in the expansion of the Internet-based threats spectrum, so users can no longer cope with a standard security solution”, said Nikita Shvetsov, Chief Technology Officer at Kaspersky Lab.
:To ensure that your information, your personal online space and your financial transactions are all kept safe, it is necessary to use security solutions that integrate the full range of features and tools, such as Kaspersky Total Security – Multi-Device."
Kaspersky says the effectiveness of its protection is confirmed by independent test labs.
