Editors' Review

Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 is an all-in-one security suite with improved design, faster scan times, and protection for online activity.

Pros

Fantastic redesign: Kaspersky Internet Security's new look and feel are stunning. The four primary tools (Scan, Update, Safe Money, and Parental Controls) are now in a cleaner, more palatable two-by-two grid. When you mouse over a module, it lights up with a subtle color and pops up as you hover. The changes aren't just skin deep; Kaspersky has polished the entire flow down to the most granular options. This elegant new experience builds on Kaspersky's already stellar track record for security design.

Rapid scans: Kaspersky Internet Security completed a full scan at about 6 minutes and 2 seconds, which puts it on the faster end of the spectrum.

Top-tier protection: In a May 2014 AV-Comparatives Real World Protection test, Kaspersky Internet Security scored a 99.9 percent block rate, and the 0.1 percent was not considered a compromised case. The only antivirus product to outscore Kaspersky was Bitdefender. AV-Test gave perfect marks to Kaspersky Internet Security across the board, scoring a 6.0/6.0 in Protection, Performance, and Usability. The latest version offers added protection against Webcam hijacking and sends notifications when you attempt to connect to unsecured Wi-Fi networks.

Cons

Surprise browser add-on: Users might be slightly thrown off by Kaspersky attaching a browser add-on. However, the tool toggles the virtual keyboard to deter keyloggers, and also offers real-time alerts for malicious URLs.

Bottom Line

Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 is the best version thus far and, remarkably, one of the best-designed antivirus applications for Windows. While last year's design and performance were better than average, this year's release leaves us little more to ask for. Great performance, speed, and an experience appropriate for both mouse and touchscreen make Kaspersky Internet Security a top pick.

"BEST INTERNET SECURITY IMPROVEMENT EVER"

October 26, 2014  |  By colombous

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

Pros

I have used kaspersky for 6 years already 3 years were internet security because back then, pure was better than pure 2.0, 2.0 ruined my computer so i downloaded internet security. The 2013 and 2014 froze my computer for a minute or two .evrytime i launch a certain program. 2015 Internet security is a whole new product that pwned all previous versions. 2015 is much more stable and faster during windows startup and doesnt freeze wwhen you click on other apps when it hasnt loaded yet.

Cons

Auto Update is annoying. It only works once in a while. when it doesnt it tells you to update.

Summary

one of the best anti-virus software out there because kaspersky knows what is a virus and allows users to choose to delete or leave. That is very important for people who does stuff on computer.

"Promises with degrading performance"

July 21, 2014  |  By TOMW17

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

Pros

Still good antivirus, inviting GUI, many useful features, relatively easy to use.

Cons

Serious impact to the system and performance, slow, unreliable, unsolved compatibility issues, almost all safety features are buggy, very poor support (can be different by countries) , corporate arrogance. KIS includes many services and features that Kaspersky has been unable to develop and make fully usable and reliable for long years now.

Summary

The new GUI as well as many safety features are dependent and subordinate to Kaspersky marketing project to boost sales. They are very inviting but KIS is getting heavier, slower, buggier, more incompatible, and less reliable from KIS 2012.

---------------------------
Recently antivirus solutions give very limited protection and a reliable IS software need many more security features. The KIS series have them but just don't work.


The "TOOL" section offers many features, but they are all buggy, they retrieve false results and fixing them might corrupt the system. E.g. after running " Microsoft Windows Troubleshooting" and fixing some recommended security issues the following "Vulnerability Scan" still lists the same issues as security risk, clicking "FIX", it does nothing.
Virus scan sometimes detects malwares sometimes not. I run 6 full-scans consecutively and it detected the same malware only twice from 6 scans.
I could use all the 15 000 characters to enumerate all the dangerous bugs.
--------------------------------
Kaspersky knows about all the bugs for a long time and either they just do not care or have no idea or they don't have the required technical background or potential to fix them. My guessing is -- both.
-------------------------------
Prime danger that KIS incompatibility problems and bugs are hidden, hard to notice and detect for average users, and when the system is corrupted or just not protected properly, users will lose association with the triggering issue thus KIS and will not know what went wrong.
------------------------------
I tested many other IS software, all had some minor issues, but not that much and not that unpleasant or dangerous that KIS has.
