Full Kaspersky Antivirus review
We find that Kaspersky scores well about the ability to protect a computer against malware. Kaspersky can scan and detect any malware in real time. The program is also able to destroy all malware threats before the threats cause any damage to your computer. Although this is an essential feature of any antivirus program, there is no doubt that many antivirus programs differ in their particular ability to do this. We, therefore, find that Kaspersky is better than many other antivirus software programs that are in the market.
For a standard one-year protection plan using Kaspersky, you will have to part with $39.95. Compared with other similar products that are in the market, we find that this price is slightly high. However, we believe that Kaspersky Labs believes that the years that they have been in operation gives them a reason to charge their customers a little higher than what their competitors does.
When you install Kaspersky antivirus on your computer, you will get some security benefits that you may not get when you use other antivirus programs. For example, Kaspersky has a built-in capacity to protect you against phishing. The ability of the program to protect you against phishing means that once you have the program in place, you do not have to worry about the possibility of losing your identity to online identity thieves.
The percentage of resources that this program uses when it is running on your machine is very small. Compared to its competitors, we find Kaspersky more efficient regarding the effect that it has on the performance of your device. In many cases, when you perform a full scan of your computer, the antivirus program that you are using tends to slow down the performance of your machine. In the case of Kaspersky, your device retains its performance when you are performing a full scan.
We find the web interface of Kaspersky quite elegant in design. The manner in which the items appear makes it very easy for you to access any part of the website. We also find it easy to navigate through the site and get all the information and other resources that we need when using the software.
Kaspersky antivirus is compatible with a broad range of devices. You can use it on any device; be it a computer, a tablet or a smartphone. You can also use the software on a device that runs on any operating system.
You can pay for your Kaspersky antivirus plan either using your credit card or via PayPal. We tried to purchase the program using a credit card, and we must admit that the process was safe, secure and convenient. As it is the case with many services nowadays, Kaspersky will remind you to repurchase your plan or choose another plan that you think will suit you the moment they realize that your current plan is about to expire.
The customer support team of Kaspersky Labs operates in the Philippines. We find that the guys running the show are knowledgeable of what they are doing. They respond to issues relatively fast and provide answers that make sense. We think that the customer support team of Kaspersky does a fairly good job, although they can improve their services in several ways.
