Kaspersky Free is good enough overall in terms of protection features, I use it on my 2nd laptop.
You wrote about "all network activity" on your machine, this complete is covered by Kaspersky Firewall in paid versions, additional as said by @harlan4096 Network Settings "Monitored ports" this feature is available in Kaspersky Free:

Kaspersky firewall works by blocking or allowing application based on KSN Reputation or the trust by certificates.
And has generic packet rules.

Is that all it does, or does it protect from malicious outgoing IP addresses or by other means?
