Protection Level


Award-winning protection against all types of Internet threats
Online shopping, banking and social networking can leave your PC vulnerable to viruses – and your digital identity & finances exposed to criminal attacks. Kaspersky’s innovative hybrid protection approach combines powerful security technologies running on your PC and the real-time efficiency of the cloud. As a result, Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security delivers a faster, more effective response to today’s ever-evolving threats. In addition, Kaspersky’s new Automatic Exploit Prevention technology blocks attacks that try to gain control over your PC or steal your personal data by exploiting vulnerabilities within commonly-used applications. With Kaspersky PURE 3.0, you can enjoy the Internet to its full potential – without threats or disruption.

Secure online banking and shopping – with Kaspersky’s unique Safe Money technology
Whenever you use online banking, shopping websites or online payment systems, Kaspersky PURE 3.0 provides additional layers of protection. Kaspersky’s unique Safe Money technology ensures that the website you’re visiting is secure – to prevent you from being exploited by a fake or phishing website. Safe Money will also offer to open your chosen website in a special, protected mode – so your credit card number and other personal data cannot be accessed by cybercriminals.

Real-time, proactive and cloud technologies detect new, emerging and unknown threats
Because new Internet threats emerge with amazing speed, Kaspersky protects your PC by using real-time data from the cloud. With the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network constantly gathering data from millions of consenting users’ systems, Kaspersky can protect you from suspicious activity on your PC. Potential threats are monitored and analysed in real-time – and dangerous actions are completely blocked before they can cause harm.

Protects your digital identity and your privacy
Kaspersky’s latest cloud-based and proactive anti-phishing technologies defend you – and your digital identity – against online fraudsters. In addition, Kaspersky PURE 3.0 includes two unique technologies – Secure Keyboard and Virtual Keyboard – that deliver additional protection against keyloggers, hackers and identity thieves when you’re entering personal information online. Furthermore, Kaspersky’s Password Manager* generates strong passwords, securely stores your passwords in an encrypted vault and automatically logs you on to websites and applications. A new, cloud-based feature also allows you to synchronise your passwords across multiple PCs.

Scheduled backup protects your photos, music and financial data
Easy-to-use backup and restore features help you to protect your precious photos, music and financial documents – so they’re still available if you suffer a hard disk crash or if your PC is lost or stolen. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 also includes 2 GB of Online Backup – so you can access your online backup from any computer with an Internet connection.

Encrypted vaults securely store your valuable files
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 lets you create a special secure vault to store valuable information. All information in the vault is encrypted and the vault is also protected by its own password. Your encrypted information can’t be accessed by hackers and criminals, but you can safely transfer your confidential data from one computer to another.

PC Cleanup tools help to keep your PC running smoothly
On every PC, Internet browsing history and deleted files can adversely affect performance and leave PCs vulnerable to attacks. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 includes special PC Cleanup tools that can permanently ‘shred’ your deleted documents and delete your surfing history, temporary files, cookies and the contents of your Recycle Bin. PC Cleanup means you can protect your privacy and digital identity, while also ensuring your PC keeps running smoothly.

Hassle-free protection that helps to preserve your PC’s performance
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 provides everything you need to protect your PC – with minimal impact on your PC’s performance and without constantly distracting you with alerts and queries. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 has been optimised to work behind-the-scenes – checking the reputation of all applications and websites that you access, analysing the behaviour of programs, automatically updating its own databases… and more. With Kaspersky PURE 3.0 protecting your PC and your data, you can enjoy our ultimate protection – without it noticeably affecting the speed of your PC.

Easy, centralised security management of multiple PCs… from a single PC
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 makes it incredibly simple to manage the security of multiple PCs in your home. From one PC, you can easily view and control all security tasks – including running scans, updates and backup tasks, fixing security issues, remotely managing parental controls… and more. Maintaining the security of your PCs has never been easier or more convenient.

Award-winning parental controls keep your children safe online
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 includes award-winning parental controls – to help keep your children safe and responsible. In addition to controlling your children’s access to the PC, Internet, applications, games and websites, you can also block, limit or log Instant Messaging and social networking. Furthermore, it’s easy to control file downloads and you can even block the transfer of private data – such as phone and credit card numbers.

  • New! Safe Money – adds more protection for financial transactions
    Whenever you log onto an online shopping, banking or payment website, Kaspersky’s new Safe Money technology offers automatic protection. It checks the website’s URL against a list of secure sites, verifies the site’s security certificate and also scans your PC’s operating system to check for any related vulnerabilities. Safe Money also automatically suggests that the site is opened in the special Safe Money mode – to help further protect your personal data against theft.

  • New! Secure Keyboard & improved Virtual Keyboard – help protect your identity
    When you open a bank or payment website – or enter a password on a website – Kaspersky’s Secure Keyboard technology automatically prevents keyloggers from accessing the personal data that you type on your keyboard. Furthermore, Kaspersky’s improved Virtual Keyboard technology lets you input confidential data without even using a keyboard – so your information is safe from capture by ‘screen scrapers’, keyloggers and more.

  • New! Automatic Exploit Prevention – defends against the exploitation of vulnerabilities
    Malware is increasingly targeting vulnerabilities within commonly-used PC applications. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security includes a new technology – Automatic Exploit Prevention – that blocks malware from exploiting such vulnerabilities. Automatic Exploit Prevention scans your PC for vulnerabilities and controls the actions of any programs that have vulnerabilities. It blocks exploits by:

    • Controlling the launch of executable files by any applications that have vulnerabilities
    • Analysing the behaviour of executable files – to identify any similarities with known malicious programs
    • Restricting the actions that can be undertaken by applications that have vulnerabilities
  • New! Password Manager* now includes Password Sync
    Kaspersky’s Password Manager not only enhances your security – by generating secure, random passwords – it also automatically logs you onto your website accounts and applications, including Skype and Instant Messenger. Now, with the new Password Sync feature, Kaspersky PURE 3.0 securely stores your passwords online in the cloud. With Password Sync, you can safely access your passwords from any PC and be automatically logged onto your chosen websites and applications.

  • New! Online backup – makes data backup even more convenient
    If your PC fails, Kaspersky’s flexible backup features mean you can still access your documents, photos, music and other files. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 lets you backup your data onto your hard drive, removable media or a range of other physical storage. In addition, the new Online Backup feature allows you to store up to 2 GB of backup files online, via Dropbox – so you can use any PC with an Internet connection to access your backup.

  • Secure vaults – protect your most precious data
    With Kaspersky PURE 3.0, it’s easy to create a special, secure vault to store your most valuable information. Kaspersky encrypts all data that is stored in the vault and access to the vault is password-protected – to defend the vault against hacker attacks.

  • PC Cleanup tools – add security and help you preserve PC performance
    Easy-to-use PC Cleanup tools add to your security by letting you ‘shred’ deleted documents and delete your Internet browsing history. This helps to protect your privacy, prevent attacks by cybercriminals and keep your PC running more smoothly.

  • Home Network Control – simplifies management tasks across multiple PCs
    Kaspersky PURE 3.0 includes Home Network Control – to make it easy for you to launch scans, run updates, backup data and manage the security of multiple PCs on your home network – via a single PC.

  • Parental Control – helps to keep your children safe online
    Kaspersky PURE 3.0 makes it easy to monitor and limit your children’s online activities, communications and general PC usage. Convenient controls help you to protect your children from harmful Internet content or inappropriate websites, prevent downloads of specific types of files and also block communications with unwanted contacts via instant messaging or social networks.

Excellent Product I've been with Kaspersky for a couple of years now. Throughout this time several improvements and new versions were issued. I've been protected against some of the biggest virus threats circulating the Globe. Keep up the good work and continue protecting us the way you've been. April 30, 2014
Review I think that there are some good things and some bad things. There is a lot that needs to be up graded and needs fixing. There are also things that are confusing that needs more info. One thing that don't work on mine and i have no idea about its the back up. Hopefully this program will be more fixed in the next year so more people understand how to do it. April 24, 2014
Gr8 Product I only had it about 3 months, so far so good haven't found any viruses or anything yet...once you set up the password vault I really like the part where you don't have to type any passwords after the initial setup. April 22, 2014
No worries and highly recommended. I decided to go with the top of the line since I have grandchildren using the computers all the time. In buying my new computer and windows service I wanted to relieve my worries. The comp tech remarked this was the best to offer and was very impressed with it. I can relax some now. April 22, 2014
Exceptional Program I have just renewed my Kaspersky Pure for another 3 years. After years with the more popular program I was introduced to Kaspersky and never looked back. It takes care of all 3 of my units and I no longer worry about anything slipping through. It's so easy to use and doesn't clog my systems or bother me with unnecessary popups. April 22, 2014
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security In the past I've tried other antivirus products and my PCs were invaded with Trojans and other viruses causing them to be inoperable. My hats off to Kaspersky. Keep up the outstanding work. April 21, 2014
This Kaspersky has paid for itself many times over. I replaced Norton with this and Kaspersky and Malware Pro make a great team. The rescue disc is pretty impressive and why I bought it originally. Saved me from going to a cpu technician when I had a ton of tricky malware and a Linux-based remote zombie host virus. April 21, 2014
Offers peace of mind online We have been pleased with both the protection and the ease of use with the Kaspersky Security Suite. Knowing our e-mail is protected, as well as our financial info allows us to feel secure when using our PC and Laptop. April 20, 2014
