Core Protection
  • Award-Winning Protection That Won't Slow You Down
    Kaspersky takes an innovative, multi-layered approach to protection-from a powerful database of malware signatures, to real-time cloud-enabled scanning of files, and much more. You can enjoy complete peace of mind knowing you're always safe from the latest viruses, trojans, worms, bots, spyware, keyloggers, and rootkits-whatever cybercriminals try to send your way. And with small, frequent updates and intelligent, behind-the-scenes scanning, there's no slowing you down as you shop, bank, and play online.
  • Real-Time Protection
    Kaspersky's Urgent Detection System offers the ultimate in real-time protection when you surf the web, use email, or download files. Our global team of virus analysts can red-flag previously unknown malware within minutes of its inception, giving you the ultimate protection as new threats emerge.
  • Two-Way Firewall
    Kaspersky's best-in-class, two-way firewall provides a secure perimeter around your PC to keep hackers out. But it also provides protection in the opposite direction by controlling what's transmitted from your PC to the outside world, stopping malware from sending out your personal information. It's one more layer of defense keeping your personal information from falling into the wrong hands.
Advanced Protection
  • Emerging Threat Detection
    New Internet threats are constantly surfacing, so exceptional protection requires more than a powerful database of malware signatures. Kaspersky takes an innovative, multi-layered approach to protection which includes proactive detection of emerging threats. Kaspersky PURE Total Security seeks out suspicious behavior on your system and blocks dangerous actions before they can cause any harm-all without draining performance.
  • Application Control
    Kaspersky's unique Application Control uses real-time threat intelligence to determine security privileges for every application you launch-without impacting system performance. Unknown or suspicious applications are watched or restricted from potentially-harmful actions, and potentially dangerous applications are completely blocked from harming your system.
  • Safe Run*
    Kaspersky's innovative Safe Run mode provides an added layer of protection for opening suspicious programs, files, and websites. It's walled-off from your data and PC settings, so you can have complete confidence that no harm will come to your PC.
  • Anti-Spam
    Spam can be more than an annoyance-it can be a vehicle for delivering malware to your PC. Kaspersky blocks the most common spam emails as soon as you install it, but it also trains itself based on your email habits.
  • Vulnerability Detection
    Kaspersky PURE Total Security finds vulnerable programs on your PC that haven't been updated with the latest fixes. We assist in patching those holes in your protection before they can be exploited by viruses, spyware, and identity thieves.
Central Management of Multiple PCs
  • Unique Home Network Control
    Kaspersky PURE Total Security makes managing the security of multiple PCs a breeze. From one PC, you can easily view and maintain the security tasks for all the PCs in your home: run scans, updates, and backup tasks; fix security issues; remotely manage parental controls; even update the Kaspersky PURE Total Security license throughout your home. Maintaining your home's PC security has never been easier or more convenient.
  • Unique Remote Management of Parental Controls
    It's hard to always know what your kids are up to online, and it isn't convenient to have to search for your teen's notebook to monitor his online activity. Kaspersky PURE Total Security makes it easy to ensure your kids' online safety with remote management of parental controls. From one PC, you can set and adjust parental control settings, and monitor all online activities-for all the PCs in your home. You can even customize reporting, providing a convenient view of the information that's most pertinent to you.
Identity Protection
  • Password Manager**
    Kaspersky's Password Manager combats identity theft by generating distinct, strong passwords for all of your online accounts, storing your account information in an encrypted vault, and automatically logging you on to websites. You only have to remember one master password. And, you can conveniently save your Password Manager vault onto a flash drive to enjoy access to it while you're working on other computers-without having to install a thing.
  • Virtual Keyboard
    Kaspersky's Virtual Keyboard is a special online tool for entering private data such as credit card numbers and passwords. It's an on-screen keyboard you use with a mouse, so the data you enter can't be tracked or stolen by keyloggers, hackers, or identity thieves. It's one more layer of defense ensuring the safety of your digital identity.
  • Anti-Phishing Defense
    Phishing attacks are becoming more common, and much more tricky. It's increasingly difficult to know if an email is really from your bank, for example, or a cybercriminal trying to lure you into revealing confidential information. Kaspersky maintains a robust online database of phishing websites, and references it each time you receive an email or navigate to a URL-all without draining performance. You can be confident that your digital identity is always safe.
  • Two-Way Firewall
    Kaspersky's best-in-class, two-way firewall provides a secure perimeter around your PC to keep hackers out. But it also provides protection in the opposite direction by controlling what's transmitted from your PC to the outside world, stopping malware from sending out your personal information. It's one more layer of defense keeping your personal information from falling into the wrong hands.

Digital Asset Protection
  • Backup & Restore
    Kaspersky PURE Total Security helps you protect your valuable music collection, treasured photos, and critical financial information in the event your hard drive crashes or your PC is lost or stolen. Simply schedule routine, automatic backup to an external drive, USB, or FTP location. You can store multiple versions of files, and restore individual files or an entire data set. You can even restore your backup data to any PC-including one without Kaspersky PURE Total Security installed.
  • Data Encryption
    You can't always control who has access to your PC-you may forget to logout when you step away from your desk, or your PC could be lost or stolen. Kaspersky PURE Total Security allows you to easily encrypt your sensitive personal information, so it's not left vulnerable to someone else. You can also create encrypted, password-protected file vaults that allow you to securely transfer files between computers via USB or email.
  • File Shredder
    Even after you delete a file and empty your Recycle Bin, it's still recoverable on your hard drive and potentially vulnerable to cybercriminals. Kaspersky's File Shredder irreversibly wipes your unwanted files off of your system, so they can't be recovered, reconstructed, or stolen.
PC Clean-Up Tools
  • System Restore
    Certain types of malware, such as spyware and rootkits, can change your system settings in an effort to leave your machine more vulnerable to infection. Kaspersky PURE Total Security scans your system settings for suspicious changes, and alerts you that you may want to restore your original settings.
  • Rescue CD
    Kaspersky believes in a multi-layered approach to protection, and one of the many layers of defense against malware is a rescue disk. We make it easy to create a bootable rescue CD, so if destructive malware does find its way on to your PC, you have an easy way to quickly restore your system.

Performance

    Kaspersky delivers especially-small, frequent updates that won't slow down your computer. You're constantly protected from the latest threats, while we work behind-the-scenes with minimal drag on your system-less than 1% drain on your computer processing power.

    Kaspersky's unique technologies keep your system at maximum performance while still delivering premium protection from viruses and spyware. Files are scanned only if they've been opened or modified, and background activities are reduced when you're placing demands on your PC. You can enjoy watching movies, surfing the web, or toggling multiple programs without disruption from your security software.
  • Gamer Mode
    Switch on Gamer Mode to block pop-ups and reduce the use of your PCs resources to a bare minimum, so you can frag, pwn, and gloat without any lag. Games won't be interrupted or slowed, and Kaspersky will still block any hackers or malware that tries to sneak onto your system.
