JOHANNESBURG – KASPERSKY Lab, the global cyber security company, launched updated versions of its consumer flagship products.
The updated Kaspersky Internet Security ensures even better protection against ransomware, is able to protect Mac computers while using public Wi-Fi networks and also offers an extra layer of protection with a secret code for Android users to prevent specific apps like instant messaging services, social media and email from being seen by others if they are accessing a user’s phone.
In addition, the consumer line-up is extended by a free solution aimed at protecting Windows home users from cyberthreats. The release of Kaspersky Free is coincided with the company’s celebration of its 20th anniversary.
“This year, Kaspersky Lab is celebrating an extremely successful 20 years in the IT security market,” said Riaan Badenhorst, General Manager at Kaspersky Lab Africa.
He said during the two decades, the Russian headquartered company’s mission had been to provide as many people as possible with reliable protection against cybercrime.
“And we are happy that users from now on will be able to benefit from an extended line-up of consumer products. The new free security solution for Windows is the crown jewel on a comprehensive set of Kaspersky Lab free and ‘free-mium’ solutions for a range of different platforms.”
The latest versions of Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Total Security are designed to protect the modern household, helping people care
for their connected devices and every aspect of their digital lives.
