WHAT’S NEW FOR KASPERSKY PRODUCTS?
As far as new versions of Kaspersky products are concerned, we should not expect a revolution. The Russian publisher was mainly satisfied with improving the existing system by working on the bugs present in the previous version and on the stability of the software. Here is the list of the main improvements:
- Added full support for the latest versions of Windows 10. In other words, Kaspersky products are now fully compatible with Windows 10 1803 (April 2018), Windows 10 1809 (October 2018) and Windows 10 1903 (May 2019)
- Improved web protection performance, especially on Firefox and other browsers using the same engine.
- Better protection against remote control programs with a new management feature in Kaspersky product settings.
- Possibility to switch directly to Kaspersky Free after the expiration of the license of a paid version of a product (Antivirus, Internet Security, Total Security…).
- Improvement of the secure browser that automatically retrieves the user’s preferences from his main browser.
- Better protection of the webcam
- Arrival of the double-factor authentication for the connection to the My Kaspersky account
- End-to-end encryption of communications between different Kaspersky products and servers
- Slight graphical redesign of the menus
If you read us regularly, you know that cybercriminals are taking advantage of the popularity of some programs to kill more people. With its new products,Kaspersky is attempting to address this scourge by strengthening protection against the exploitation of vulnerabilities in popular software, including Microsoft Office.
Finally, the Russian publisher promises to optimize the use of machine resources for faster solutions that have even less impact on device performance.
We will of course test these new features in our antivirus comparison.
