Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 review
6 February 2012
Summary: Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 (£49.99 for one year and three PCs) placed fourth in a recent survey of 2012 security suites. Although it finished outside the top three, it's a solid all-around suite that will do an effective job at keeping you safe.
Conclusion: The independent labs love Kaspersky's antivirus protection, but it fared poorly in PCMag's hands-on tests. Its firewall is impressive, and the Safe Run sandboxing feature protects the system from questionable files and Web sites, but the antispam and antiphishing features failed to impress. Choose this suite if its strong points align with your needs.
Pros: High scores from antivirus test labs. Powerful, intelligent firewall. Safe Run feature protects system from questionable programs and websites. New, simplified main window. File Advisor exposes program details from Kaspersky's database.
Cons: So-so scores in PCMag's hands-on antivirus tests. Utterly failed to remove one particular threat. Antiphishing can't beat IE. Spam filter missed much spam. Configuration required for social network monitoring caused problems for all secure sites.
Summary: Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 is a powerful security suite, packed with features, yet with less of a performance impact than the previous edition, and easier to use than ever. A good choice for both novice and expert PC users.
Excerpt: Kaspersky's Internet Security suite has won high accolades in previous years' tests, and nothing we've seen this year has cast a shadow on its outstanding performance. It defended against 100 per cent of malware threats, with the vast majority blocked at the browser. Its performance in our false positive test was also good, with none of the twitchiness or over-sensitivity that we've seen from previous versions.
Excerpt: Aseară s-a lansat oficial în România versiunea localizată a pachetului de securitate Kaspersky Internet Security 2012. La Readers Cafe din Bucureşti am asistat la o prezentare inedită: Teodor Cimpoeşu, şeful Kaspersky România ne-a făcut cunoştinţă cu noua versiune a produsului KIS 2012 punând accentul pe faptul că utilizatorul primeşte în mod automat o îmbinare între vechile tehnologii (detecţie pe bază de semnături, euristică) şi cele noi (cloud).
Excerpt: Nach einer desolaten Vorstellung im letzten Jahr greift Kaspersky wieder an: Die Internet Security 2012 kommt mit mehr Performance, wechselt die Oberfläche und steigt komplett in die Cloud ein. Reicht es diesmal für das Siegertreppchen?
Pros: Hohe Erkennungsrate, Beste Reparatur-Funktion, Keine Fehlalarme im Test
Cons: Windows-Start wird leicht verlangsamt, Leichte Schwächen bei Trojaner-Erkennung
