Kaspersky Lab has announced the release of a free solution to protect Windows home users from cyberthreats. The new product – Kaspersky Free – is based on the company's advanced technologies, which have repeatedly proved their efficiency in numerous independent tests. The reliable and user friendly solution provides basic features to secure users from the most common cyberthreats.
The number of Internet users is growing every day. According to Internet World Stats, by March 2017 the number of people connected to the Internet amounted to 3,7 billion across the world. However, the Kaspersky Cybersecurity Index shows that only slightly more than half of Internet users protect all of their connected devices. Kaspersky Lab believes that all Internet users around the world have the right to be protected against digital threats, which is why the company has developed a free security solution with an optimal set of security technologies for Windows devices.
Andrei Mochola, Head of Consumer Business at Kaspersky Lab, commented: “This year, Kaspersky Lab is celebrating an extremely successful 20 years in the IT security market. During all of this time, our mission has been to provide as many people as possible with reliable protection against cybercrime. And, today, we are happy to provide our users across the globe with a free security solution for Windows – the crown jewel on a comprehensive set of Kaspersky Lab free and freemium solutions for a range of different platforms. The engine in Kaspersky Free is the same as the engine in all of our personal products, and the solution provides users with basic high-quality protection against the most common threats, which is especially important for those who are not able to pay for a full-function solution”.
Kaspersky Free detects and automatically blocks suspicious and malicious files and programs, and alerts on potentially malicious websites and phishing (fake) pages, thus preventing criminal attempts to steal a user’s money or their identity. Kaspersky Free databases are updated automatically in real-time, so that users can be sure they are protected from the most current threats, without slowing down their computers.
For those users who want to protect all their devices on various platforms with the help of integrated services and technologies such as Safe Money, Privacy Protection, Anti-Theft, etc., Kaspersky Lab offers a multi-feature and multi-platform solution Kaspersky Internet Security.
