Kaspersky Lab Launches Next Generation of Consumer Security Solutions

Protect your connected lifestyle with market-leading security technology and features that go beyond traditional antivirus

WOBURN, Mass.--()--Today, Kaspersky Lab unveiled the latest versions of its flagship security solutions for home users, including its premium offering, Kaspersky Total Security. All of Kaspersky Lab’s solutions are designed to protect consumers against cyberattacks while also safeguarding their privacy, money, memories and more.

As technology becomes increasingly integrated in our daily lives, consumers are becoming more concerned about safeguarding their devices against cyberattacks, data breaches and other online threats. In fact, 72 percent of Canadians say that protecting all of their devices from cyber-threats causes them stress, according to a recent survey from Kaspersky Lab. To alleviate these concerns, Kaspersky Lab’s line of home security solutions have been updated with new features and technologies to help consumers secure their connected lives.

Kaspersky Lab has released updated versions of its premium antivirus offerings, Kaspersky Total Security and Kaspersky Internet Security, designed to protect consumers from any digital threats they encounter. These products include performance enhancements designed to increase ease of configuration and detection efficiency. The latest editions of the company’s essential products, Kaspersky Anti-Virus and Kaspersky Free, have also been updated with functions to protect consumers against the newest and most advanced cyber-threats. All products incorporate Kaspersky Lab’s market-leading antivirus detection technology.

Consumers are being increasingly targeted by advanced threats like ransomware and crypto-mining malware, which can impact computer performance and put precious data at risk. Kaspersky Lab solutions include System Watcher technology to protect against these threats. System Watcher monitors devices for suspicious activity and blocks any malicious changes to the system – ensuring that all data on the device will be safeguarded against a cyberattack.

While today’s on-the-go consumers may be tempted to connect to public Wi-Fi, doing so can come with the risk of having data intercepted by cybercriminals. Secure Connection is Kaspersky Lab’s VPN solution, included in Kaspersky Total Security and Kaspersky Internet Security. Secure Connection encrypts all traffic transmitted over unsecured Wi-Fi connections, so that it cannot be viewed or captured by cybercriminals.

Finally, for children who are beginning to explore the digital world, Safe Kids technology helps parents keep an eye on their kids, while protecting them against online threats. With Safe Kids, available on Kaspersky Total Security, parents can set device time limits, track their child’s location, restrict certain apps or websites, monitor social networks and more.

“Consumers are becoming increasingly dependent on digital devices for their day-to-day activities, from taking photos to making payments to communicating with family and friends,” said Brian Anderson, vice president of consumer sales, Kaspersky Lab North America. “Encountering a cyber-threat on your device can be stressful and frustrating, especially when it leads to lost data, time or money. With Kaspersky Lab’s latest home security solutions, consumers can have peace of mind that what matters most to them is safeguarded against any kind of cyber-threat.”

Kaspersky Total Security, Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Anti-Virus are available for purchase now on Kaspersky Lab's online store and in select retail outlets in Canada. Limited time, introductory pricing for five user licenses for a one-year period of Kaspersky Total Security is CA$65.99, regularly valued at CA$131.99.
