Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions, announces that PC Achat, one of France’s leading IT magazines, has singled out Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 for its “Editor’s Choice” award.

“Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 is an effective solution designed to protect users from all types of viruses, spyware, hacker attacks, spam, and phishing. It also includes an easy-to-use interface,” the magazine states. PC Achat also stresses the solution’s high scanning speed and optimal use of RAM and multi-core processors.

The results of the tests conducted by PC Achat confirmed the reliable operation of Kaspersky Internet Security 2009. “Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 includes a two-way firewall which is highly effective: all our attempts to intrude into the system failed. The same thing happened when we attempted to launch different malicious programs,” the article concludes.

The new personal products released by Kaspersky Lab in the middle of 2008 are based on a new antivirus engine which dramatically increases system scanning speed. Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 incorporates an innovative application activity filtration module that makes use of HIPS (Host-based Intrusion Prevention System) technology together with an improved firewall, an anti-spam module and a parental control module. The solution provides effective and secure protection to internet users.
