Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 responds to an unprecedented growth in the number and sophistication of computer threats. Today’s threats replace traditional viruses with crimeware: malicious programs used by criminals to harvest your confidential data and make money illegally. Kaspersky® Internet Security 2009 not only deals with threats, but actually prevents threats from ever occurring. The product provides complete protection from identity theft, spyware, hijacking, botnets, hacker attacks, viruses, worms, Trojans, keyloggers, rootkits, phishing, unwanted pop-up ads and spam. Kaspersky® Internet Security 2009 includes a two-way firewall, parental control features - and a virtual keyboard for safer online banking.
Some of the new and improved layers of security added to Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 include:
* New & Improved Threat Prevention System provides PCs with even more reliable protection.
* Application Whitelisting restricts access to programs that are not on the white list of permitted applications.
* Security Rating Technology assigns a security rating to programs, devices, and system resources – and restricts their activity on a computer according to this rating.
* System Security Analysis Tool carries out a security health check by scanning and analysing the operating system and installed applications. After examining all the files on the machine, the collected data is matched against a database of known software vulnerabilities to determine the health of the system – and will inform you if you need to apply any updates to protect your system.
* Virtual Keyboard is a secure pop-up that enables logins, passwords, bank card details and other important personal information to be entered safely to prevent the theft of confidential information.
* Parental Control features help keep children safe online and manage their Internet experience: Restrict the time children spend online; block access to inappropriate or offensive sites, define categories of inappropriate content, and more.
* Tuned For Excellent Performance with minimum impact on processor, memory and bandwidth. Scans only new and changed files using Kaspersky Lab’s iSwift™ and iChecker™ technologies. Includes automatic balancing of scan speeds with increased user activity – ideal for Wi-Fi and gaming.
* Optimised Security enables the system to rapidly roll back any malicious changes and restore encrypted data.
* An Easy-To-Create Rescue Disk instantly disinfects and restores your system if attacked by malware, even if the operating system has been damaged.
