Kaspersky Anti-Virus combines security and efficiency. So your PC can keep performing as it was designed to. Moreover, it simplifies security. So you can manage your PC’s protection via any online device.
The cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network gathers data from millions of participating users’ systems around the world. That helps defend you from the very latest viruses and malware attacks.
If your PC has application or system vulnerabilities that haven’t been updated with the latest fixes, cyber criminals and malware could gain entry.
