New product from Kaspersky Lab wins British award

Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions that protect against viruses, Trojans, worms, hacker attacks, spyware and spam, announces the latest accolade for its new generation of products. Kaspersky® Anti-Virus 6.0 has won the Computer Shopper Best Buy Award in the June edition of Computer Shopper, Britain’s largest selling computer magazine for consumers.

This new product, which is due for release in May, was featured in the review and tested against other leading antivirus programs for the first time in the UK.

The reviewer was particularly impressed by the software’s ease of use and range of functionality to suit all types of users. He commented: “An updated, friendly interface gives access to lots of options; many suitable for advanced users. However, if you don’t want to get your hands dirty playing with advanced settings or exporting virus scan reports in CSV format, you don’t have to. Simply install the software, let it update itself, and it scans your system regularly. A single slider selects one of three security levels.”

The key criterion of any review is how the software performs within the testing and its detection rates. Here, the reviewer describes Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0’s performance: “Perfectly, as it turned out. It was one of only three products tested to detect every sample. Interestingly, the other two (F-Secure and Steganos AntiVirus) also use Kaspersky Anti-Virus technology.”

Overall, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 was described as "one of the best priced options available”. Current registered users of Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal 5.0 can upgrade free of charge to the new edition when it is released and as the reviewer pointed out, “If you run Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5, upgrading is a no-brainer.”
