Kaspersky Adds 'Triple Threat' Protection

Kaspersky Lab introduces Anti-Virus 7.0 and Internet Security 7.0

WOBURN, Mass. -- Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of Internet threat management solutions that protect against viruses, spyware, hackers and spam, today introduced the newest versions of its flagship consumer and small office products – Kaspersky® Anti-Virus 7.0 and Kaspersky® Internet Security 7.0.

Version 7.0 builds on the foundation of Kaspersky’s award-winning version 6.0 antivirus engine, which earned the worldwide recognition of both advanced IT users and millions of consumers. Kaspersky Anti-Virus 7.0 includes premium-level protection against viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware, adware, rootkits and keyloggers. Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0 offers all this and additional protection against phishing and spam, the integration of a sophisticated firewall, plus privacy and parental controls.

Triple Threat Protection – Kaspersky Anti-Virus 7.0 (KAV) and Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0 (KIS) both offer the same comprehensive three-point protection concept developed by Kaspersky Lab against known and unknown threats. Triple Threat Protection combines three advanced approaches for defending against today’s Internet threats and to effectively combat programs designed to steal financial and confidential data stored on a computer.

Randy Drawas, Vice President, Marketing, Kaspersky Lab: “The number of daily new malicious threats detected in our Lab is growing at an unprecedented rate. And as people continue to store more valuable information on their computer – photos, music or personal information – and as they shop and bank more online, they require automated and robust security they can trust. Our new seventh-generation security solutions just re-upped on our promise to keep our customers safe. Triple Threat Protection seriously raises the bar that cybercriminals have to scale, all while minimally impacting our users’ computing experience.”
