Introduction

Kaspersky is one of the best antivirus applications available out there, which has the potential to ensure the protection of users without delivering frustrating false positives. However, the dashboard of Kaspersky is not well organized and users might face some confusion when they are using it for the very first time. That’s mainly because the developers at Kaspersky have added different functionalities to the software.

Protection

Kaspersky is equipped with a traditional scanning engine. It stores all the digital storages of known infections and matches them along with suspect software. In addition, it uses the behavioral analysis in order to identify the tell-tale signs of malware. At the moment, over 400 million computers in every corner of the world are protected by Kaspersky. The hybrid protection system analyzes the data that is being uploaded by all these computers. However, it is not mandatory for all the users to participate in this data sharing program.

Performance

Kaspersky Antivirus is one of the few antivirus applications that is associated with a very low false positive alarm rate. This fact has been proven from many different studies. Kaspersky Internet Security can be considered as the brother program of Kaspersky Antivirus and it comes along with similar virus blocking capabilities. It has also been identified that the search engine of Kaspersky is associated with a very high success rate of 99.9%.

It comes along with a virtual keyboard that can help the users to stay away from keylogging malware. The URL advisor can help them to keep out of phishing attacks. However, it does not have a strengthened Internet browser, which you can use for online shopping or banking. The vulnerability scanner of Kaspersky looks for weaknesses in the computer programs and operating system in an effective manner.
