For online and offline users, home users and business users, Westcon Security has lifted the lid on the latest versions of Kaspersky Anti-Virus and Internet Security 2012.

Now boasting a hybrid approach to digital security, real-time protection from the cloud and a superior security database and threat protector, the software is designed to meet all technology security needs.
The new software sees the company dropping the beta tag and offering superior security from boot to processing, whether wired or wireless, at home or on the corporate network. Users will now be able to take advantage of a series of general technology security improvements and enhancements made in the new Kaspersky Anti-Virus and Internet Security 2012.
“The new release sees a number of low-level changes to both the Anti-Virus and Internet Security offerings with protection kicking in earlier on in the boot process, making it harder for rootkits to modify the operating system as well as blocking attempts by malware to disable the antivirus engine,” states Jan De Lange, MD of Westcon Security.
“Other notable improvements include a new, more user friendly interface for easier monitoring of your security status, as well as the ability to track and monitor ongoing scans.”
A host of new features enable users to launch tasks straight from the desktop, and the software now also supports touch screen systems. Kaspersky has also reported that the release also provides significant improvements for “cloud protection” and new heuristic technologies are designed to better detect and thwart phishing attempts.
On a technical front, System Watcher is able to roll back even more actions that may have been made by an infected application, allowing the user to better repair and harness the damage caused by a malware infection.
Known features such as spam filter, parental controls, smart firewall, virtual keyboard to bypass keyloggers, sandboxing, vulnerability scans, privacy options and Windows troubleshooting tools have not been left out, but rather enhanced for improved security.
Providing users premium protection from viruses, Trojans, spam and hackers whether banking, shopping or social networking online, Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 will ensure that users' account details and personal information is always secure.

* The combination of fast and efficient antivirus software with premium Internet threat defence.

The backbone of a PC’s security system, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012, delivers real-time protection from the latest malware and viruses. It works behind-the-scenes with intelligent scanning and small, frequent updates, while proactively protecting users from known and emerging Internet threats.
The software is able to scan all Web sites and e-mails for malicious software, detect and help repair program vulnerabilities and perform safety checks of files, applications and Web sites with one click.
The software rolls back to the most harmful malware activity, allows the delivery of smart, frequent updates throughout the day, provides maximisation of PC performance with speed and efficiency, and has an easy-to-use interface and Desktop Security Gadget.
“The beauty of the new packages is that all of the above functionality does not come with a performance penalty as Kaspersky has stated that it has reduced the impact and demands of both on your system.
"We are particularly excited about the additional security benefits for cloud computing users, as well as the hybrid approach to digital security taken in this release, and believe our clients will greatly benefit from making the upgrade,” concludes De Lange.
