Enhanced Internet Security Solutions

By Lim Yeh Ern

KASPERSKY Labs has announced the Kaspersky 2009 security solutions, which will be available early next year. The solutions comprise Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 provides additional security against network-based attacks such as hijacking, botnets and even spam. It also includes a two-way firewall that actively monitors all programs on the user's computer against potential attacks.

Both solutions also come with a virtual keyboard to prevent keylogging software from picking up keystrokes of a physical keyboard when users enter passwords and log in details on banking Web sites.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009 retail for RM99 and RM69 for a year of subscription respectively. Customers with the existing version 7.0 licence may upgrade for free for the remainder of their licence period.

Customers may also choose to purchase online through www.
