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.

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

  • 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.

Customer Reviews

Kaspersky PURE 3.0 4.5 5 911 911
Total protection for my pc I have been using Kaspersky for about a year. I have not had any issues and I am pleased with the product. In the past I have used other security protection and had viruses and it bogged down my computer. I highly recommend Kaspersky and it is reasonably priced. July 20, 2014
Pure 3.0 new 2014 I have used Kaspersky's products for about 8 years or more. Excellent product, I have used quite a few of these multi products to keep my computer safe. Kaspersky's comes the closest to excellent that i have seen. Norton updates killed my computer 3 times. Done with that one. I find the geo lock function of Kaspersky the best feature i have seen in any of these multi system protection systems going. Malwarebytes is a program i use with Kaspersky, but this has to be turn off in order for malwarebytes to function properly. They are not compatible, however i have not had to use them in over a year so this might have changed. I endorse this product completely. Just lots of fun to use, is all. July 20, 2014
Complete protection Absolutely true. Been using Pure for 5 yrs. Excellent! July 19, 2014
High performance, Low overhead I bought Kaspersky on the advice on my son who is a software engineer with a major Hedge Fund in NYC. He said it was the best PC protection on the market. I installed it on two PC's, one was an old notebook that's running XP, the other a new notebook running Windows 7. The XP had been running very slow, to the point of being useless due to the overhead from the virus protection. Once Kaspersky was installed it was like having a new machine. Much faster, and installation was easy, no issues at all. The Windows 7 machine had been experiencing slow downs when the old virus software ran, and this disappeared once Kaspersky was installed. Scans are fast and don't seem to slow down the system at all. Again, installation was simple and easy. Pretty impressive product overall. The only criticism I would make is a small one regarding using their email scan option. For some reason, when Outlook is downloading messages, there is often some "hesitation" while Kaspersky scans the email. It's generally only a few seconds, but sometimes can be annoying. On the other hand, it's spam filter is outstanding, so it's not making me crazy. Otherwise, no complaints. July 17, 2014
Great Product Have on all my pcs and wouldn't use another software for protection. Been using over 6 years (I think) July 16, 2014
K gives me total confidence when i am online. My only problem comes when i have to renew. your renewal process is far from smooth. the web site does not have an apparent icon to use in the process and i dread it when renewal time comes up. Please make it easier. July 15, 2014
100% Satisfied I had a computer that came pre-loaded with McAfee so I stayed with it. At one point there were some issues. A friend came over and downloaded the free version of Kaspersky. Kaspersky found over 25 trojans, viruses, malware ect, that McAfee had not seen. That convinced me to switch. I have never had a problem since.I am satisfied. They could explain things a bit simpler when showing how different things work. July 14, 2014
Very good security Kaspersky pure is very good security to have on your pc while not perfect it has high detection rate. i gave it all 5 stars because i like it and am happy with it. What i mean when i say its not perfect there are a lot of things it will not detect. But that 's with every other single security on the market they also are not perfect and will not detect every single thing either. Kaspersky does have higher detection rate than most other securities on the market not saying the others are bad but in my option kaspersky is better than most just remember to put your security setting to the max for full protection. They also update there database every 2 hours so thats good. If you want good security i would recommend the kaspersky pure. But people keep in mind what i said before NO security company on the market is going to protect your computer 100 % and beyond unless it does completely block everything i guess you can say like a apple mac computer but even those can be infected if you try hard enough so yes give it a try you will be happy with kaspersky pure or any of it's other product's. And if you do find any file that's malicious that it does not detect or block or give a warning just download it and send it to newvirus@kaspersky.com after you send it to them delete the file from your downloads but never run or opened it the more protection all kaspersky users have the worst it is for the bad guy's July 14, 2014
