Security company Kaspersky Lab today announced its updated product lineup for home consumers, including the Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015, Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 and Kaspersky Internet Security - Multiple-Device 2015. Designed to protect Microsoft Windows, Apple OS X and Google Android devices from current threats in a rather complex security world.
New features include Webcam protection aimed at keeping built-in Web cameras safe and secure from outside hacking. Kaspersky also included a Wi-Fi security notification module that ensures public Wi-Fi hotspots are secure, informing users of vulnerable network connections or unsecured password transmission. Ransomware which encrypts files also is a major threat to PC users, so the Kaspersky Lab System Watcher module verifies all running processes to prevent criminals from encrypting files.
"Today's threat landscape is persistently evolving and at Kaspersky Lab we're continuously staying one step ahead of the cybercriminals," said Justin Priestley, Kaspersky Lab consumer sales SVP, in a statement. "We provide our customers with the most advanced protection tools available, like the innovative Webcam Protection and System Watcher features. Our 2015 suite of products, especially Kaspersky Lab Internet Security, is equipped with technologies that have proven to be effective not only in independent tests, but in the real-world, protection 300 million people across the globe."
