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.

"Great software, but..."

September 02, 2015  |  By Paul19811

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 2016

Pros

a lot of improved features

Cons

lack of windows 10 support

Summary

I'm considering kis 2016 or bis 2016 and don't rely to so called "independent" lab tests, so came across this comparison which looks at least honest written http://www.softocoupon.com/comparisons/kaspersky-internet-security-2016-vs-bitdefender-2016.php looks like kaspersky 2016 doesn't support windows 10, doesn't have auto-pilot mode and profiles. I think Bitdefender 2016 will be the better choice, when released ofcourse :)

"Best Internet Security ever"

August 28, 2015

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 2016

Pros

Handy, Best for newbies, Just install and stay tension free , big improvement in 2016.

Cons

Bit slow-downs on older processors.

Summary

Using it since 2011. The only work of mine is to install newer version if it releases one. Excellent performance and protection.

"Superb until Windows 10"

August 07, 2015  |  By Dwnldr7

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

Pros

Sophisticated detection on all connected disk drives

Cons

Windows 10 (just installed today) will not allow K.I.S. 2015 to run : I am investigating this, as it surprises me.

"Just un-installed my estimating software"

August 04, 2015

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

Pros

Free with computer purchase

Cons

If you use Xactimate, be warned. It decided that the estimating software was a trojan and deleted it. Then it changed it's mind and rolled back the changes. Of course it no longer worked and it took more than an hour to get the software working again.

Summary

I'd try another brand if you use Xactimate.

"Wait for 2016 version"

May 28, 2015  |  By rfh927

 |  Version: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 15.0.0.463

Pros

None so far....

Cons

Buggy-- stops emails from downloading from your server. Bogs down the system, hogging all resources.

Summary

Purchased Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 to replace pricier AVG Internet Security in early May 2015 and have had nothing but problems since. When finally got disgusted enough to contact their tech support, they IMMEDIATELY sent me a canned email telling me to remove KIS 2015 and to download and install KIS 2014, saying the problems will be addressed in KIS 2016 but will not be fixed in KIS 2015. They ARE STILL SELLING KIS 2015 KNOWING IT IS BUGGY AS HELL!!

"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
