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.

"I've been using KIS for 9 years and not regret"

March 15, 2015  |  By Eugenvariation

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

Pros

1. Easy to use both for less-experienced and advanced users. You can choose between "install and forget" and "manual control" options. Both options give a great level of protection.
2. Improved user interface in comparison with previous versions.
3. I've been using KIS since version 6.0 (for 9 years already) and my PC has never been infected neither with a virus nor with trojans or different advertisement software (sounds unrealistic, but it's true). Even if I temporarily didn't have access to the Internet to update anti-virus bases (such periods could last for 1-2 months) the proactive defence worked always excellent and detected potentially malware software which later turned out to be detected viruses!
4. A lot of settings for advanced users. With KIS software control you can for example restrict access to the Internet for any program you like. You can also restrict the functionality of any program you like the way you need it (if you need to do so). That's cool!

Cons

There are always some cosmetic bugs you could see in almost each version of the software, though they are not critical.

Summary

My current version is KIS 15.0.1.415(c). I am an experoenced user of Kaspersky Internet Security (I've been using it since ver. 6.0 for already 9 years) and it is currently the best anti-virus software for me. The fact is that my PC has never been infected under Kaspersky Internet Security is the main reason I continue using this software.

"2015 Version Fail"

January 17, 2015  |  By neenie1991

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

Pros

Easy to download, easy to use, complete system package.

Cons

The customer service is abysmal. The program bogs down my system so badly and want to hit myself in the head with a hammer and Kaspersky support is singularly unhelpful. When their sample screenshots don't match what my Kaspersky screens are, is that a problem?

Summary

I have used KIS for years and I feel like I got robbed this time. My computer slows down to the point that I can reminisce about dial-up. Maybe not that bad, but it has seriously bogged my computer and the 'help' and 'support' provided by KIS is more like KIS off. On the bright side I have 357 days to research and choose a new system. VERY disappointed. Now I have to pay someone to come to my house and help me figure this out. FAIL.

"Protection in general the best"

December 24, 2014  |  By AdolfV

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

Pros

- Simple design
-strong antivirus,
- strong firewall,
- Strong detection shield

Cons

- Signature updates can be a bit slow.

Summary

In general this is one of the best choiches for computer protection When it comes to comparative test, some competitiors sometimes have a better detection ratio but that is not everything when it comes to computer security in general. I guarantee this is a really good product.

"allowed malware the first day"

December 04, 2014  |  By patrick_omalley

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

Pros

Only had it a day and already have problems

Cons

In the fist day, when I installed FIlezilla, from Filezilla's site, it puts this evil malware called Vosteran on your machine that takes over as a search engine. Even if you go into Chrome to remove it, it adds itself back in. Vosteran is evil.

Simple, but Kaspersky didn't stop it.

Summary

I got it cheap, and its a lot of work to change, but there's no way I should have this problem this quickly

"Few settings adjustments"

November 28, 2014

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

Pros

Was a big fan of Kaspersky a few years ago, then tried others. After many great reviews tried this one. On install it said I had Baidu anti virus installed and had to remove. Found out it was downloaded in background by Format Factory a program I use a lot. As I've been using Avast anti virus. Well done for finding a poss problem.

Cons

Big mistake Over 3 hours to install, every time I use the computer it is in permanent rootkit scan. So very slow and are my emails scanned for viruses?. Don't know there are so few setting you can adjust. That includes type of scan and when to scan. My backups take longer as well now.

Summary

Great name and reputation, shame about the product in daily use.

"Greatly slows down everything it is installed on"

November 26, 2014  |  By semw111

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

Pros

Support Engineers try hard to fix problem

Cons

Greatly slows down everything it is installed on. This includes beefy servers, high end PC's, laptops, everything.
They will not give you a refund, even after a de-install.

Summary

I am an IT Manger. we worked with tech support for months, but could not address the performance issues. We we had to de-install it from all devices and went with McAfee

"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.

"Too slow and several issues with the system."

August 17, 2014  |  By hamid-rahmani

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

Pros

All in one package

Cons

So Slow
Almost stops other application and the system when t's start to rootkit scan or other process. It interrupt your even any simple tasks like typing these texts.

Summary

V 2014 was good. Upgrade to 2015 is a headache.

Updated on Nov 27, 2014

I had AVG, Macafee, Norton and Avira but this one is worst one. Sometimes I prefer to have a virus than this anti virus. It's a big big headache.
