Comparative Tests

Kaspersky Lab received two awards in the latest Computer Shopper comparative reviews. In the February edition, the leading UK computer equipment magazine (www.computershopper.co.uk), compared anti-virus products and Kaspersky® Anti-Virus was the only product to receive two top marks. Kaspersky® Anti-Virus Personal won 'Best Budget Buy', whilst Kaspersky® Anti-Virus Personal Pro won 'Most Desirable Buy': Kaspersky Lab was the only vendor to receive 5 stars for both of its products tested. The reviewers were particularly impressed with the flexibility of the program, "Every component is accessed via the Anti-Virus Control Centre, which can be password-protected and made to send e-mail alerts and quarantine files." The consistently high detection rates of Kaspersky products were also commended, "The software's ability to detect viruses and other nasties is excellent. Personal and Personal Pro versions scored top marks in our tests, matched only by F-Secure's software. In fact, F-Secure Anti-Virus Client Security contains software licensed by Kaspersky Lab." Overall, Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal was described as, "The Personal edition is very competitively priced and beats the competition when renewal time arrives". Whilst the reviewers' opinion of Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal Pro was that, "at £55 Personal Pro is one of the most expensive packages here, still, if you want the best protection, Kaspersky Lab Personal Pro is the one to buy."
