Defending you against Internet threats
The Internet gives us tremendous freedom and convenience – to shop, bank, keep in touch with friends, download music and share pictures at any time and from almost anywhere. However, the Internet can leave your PC – and your personal information – vulnerable to a vast quantity of viruses and other Internet threats… and, with approximately 125,000 new pieces of malware being introduced every day, that’s a lot of threats.
Kaspersky’s innovative, hybrid approach to protection combines powerful security technologies running on your PC plus the real-time efficiency of the cloud… so you benefit from a faster, much more effective response to the complex, ever-evolving threats.
Automatic Exploit Prevention
If your PC has application or system vulnerabilities that haven’t been updated with the latest fixes, cyber criminals and malware could gain entry. In addition to scanning for vulnerabilities, Kaspersky Internet Security 2017 analyses and controls the actions of programs that have vulnerabilities – so they can’t cause any harm. Kaspersky Internet Security 2017 can prevent exploitation of vulnerabilities by:
- Controlling the launch of executable files from applications with vulnerabilities
- Analysing the behaviour of executable files for any similarities with malicious programs
- Restricting the actions allowed by applications with vulnerabilities
Even if an unknown piece of malware manages to get onto your PC, Kaspersky Internet Security 2017 offers another level of protection. Our unique System Watcher monitors all actions performed by programs – and compares the behaviour of each program with the behavioural patterns of malware... so Kaspersky Internet Security 2017 can detect dangerous behaviour.
System Watcher also allows you to undo or rollback most malicious actions.
