The new office will focus mainly on developing data analysis and machine learning technologies for the company's enterprise solutions offering.

Kaspersky Lab Releases New Versions Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Internet Security, and Kaspersky Total Security

Kaspersky Lab announced the release of the versions of its security solutions ‘Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Internet Security, and Kaspersky Total Security’ which include several new functions for ensuring data protection and maintaining device updates. The latest solutions continue to protect consumers across Windows, Mac and Android devices against dangerous websites, online tracking, money theft and the latest cyber threats, such as ransomware. Ransomware, a form of malware that locks or encrypts the data stored on devices and then demands a fee to unlock it, is a growing global epidemic that is increasingly targeting consumers on both computers and mobile devices. The Company also found in a recent report that the number of users attacked by ransomware targeting Android-based devices increased four-fold in just one year, hitting over 136,000 users globally. Now users can protect their data from being intercepted during an unsafe internet connection with the help of Secure Connection. In addition, they can patch potential ‘ holes’ in their device security with Software Updater and software cleaner. Secure Connection allows users to connect to the internet safely, by encrypting all data sent and received through the network1. This is especially important when performing financial operations, authorization on sites, or transferring confidential information, because in these cases traffic interception by a stranger could cause users serious losses. This function is especially useful while traveling, as many people are increasingly connecting to unsecure Wi-Fi networks to stay in touch on-the-go. According to the Kaspersky Lab International Travel Report, 18% of participants had fallen victim to cybercrime when traveling, and the same amount of respondents admitted that they do not take any steps to protect themselves online. A common method of malware penetrating the computer is through the exploitation of vulnerabilities in the programs installed on it. Developers regularly update their products; however, not all users regularly update these on their devices. Software Updater can automatically find the applications that need to be updated, and if the user agrees, install the latest versions from vendor sites on their computer. The user can also request the update of an application manually or add any of them to the list of applications that should not be updated. Many consumers store programs that they do not use on their devices, which can overload the device memory and also provide opportunities for cybercriminals to penetrate the system. Moreover, consumers sometimes do not even know about these applications being installed on their devices or are unaware of the potential negative effects. The Software Cleaner feature scans all applications installed on the computer and marks those posing a potential risk.
