Interesting to see Kaspersky take the free route. What's different from the rest of the free AVs out there is probably that this looks more like an extended trial rather than a completely free AV

So if I understand correctly with Google translate... It will be a basic protection without any bloats like ads, popups, etc... Currently available for Russia only but will be available globally in the future.

It has-
File AV - Realtime
Web AV- Web protection
IM protection
Mail protection

And Kaspersky Security Network - Dont have any experience with Kaspersky. Is KSN good proactive protection? Mostly free AVs dont have good proactive protection & are not bloat free. If KSN is good proactive protection then along with traditional signatures/heur/web protection & bloat free... Kaspersky free will surely be the best free AV protection.

Hope it remains free & made available globally on the final release.

What all options GUI has? Anyone can mention the options in english?

Google translate of the link provided in the first post.

Kaspersky 365 1/4 - free Kaspersky Anti-Virus (Kaspersky Antivirus Free), offers file protection in real-time, Web Anti-Virus, IM and e-mail anti-virus, as well as cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network technology


* Warning!Beta-version of the program may become unstable.It is intended for advanced users only.Beta testing - intensive use almost finished version of the program in order to identify the maximum number of errors in its work for subsequent elimination before the final exit (release).

Program Description
Kaspersky 365 1/4(Kaspersky Antivirus Free) - a free anti-virus and web protection in real-time cloud technologies.

The solution includes all the necessary components to ensure basic protection for your PC, important data and online activity on the Internet from the latest threats.

From Eugene Kaspersky (founder of "Kaspersky Lab"):

This product is free, but not full of holes.The protection from malware compromises are unacceptable and it is just a product for which we do not be ashamed.It is built on the same technology as the paid personal products, which occupy the top places in independent tests.Without the surveillance of the user for advertising and trade its confidentiality.No such garbage - only protection.

The main difference between Kaspersky 365 1/4 of the paid products "Kaspersky Lab" - limited functionality.But limited enough to provide quality basic protection which is sufficient to counter the most common threats.Do not blame me: all the extra features will sell as before, becauseprogrammers salary costs for infrastructure and technology development and other expenses while nobody canceled.

Does someone know Russian and can confirm?
Kaspersky 365 1/4 будет только на русском языке. По результатам "пилота" продукт будем распространять в других культурных средах, а в перспективе – на глобальном уровне.

@yesnoo : KSN is pretty good cloud reputation component based and as for a record to have least FP rates so that should automatically gather enough protection. A trend which cloud should never be a lack for free version nowadays.

That's 100th time that someone quoted that :D
I haven't seen it posted in this thread, and there's no translated version in your original post.

Any ETA for an EN beta version release?

Mcafee did a free product now Kaspersky is "trying" :O
Both vendors, including Norton have had free security scanners, but lacked real-time protection.

Also to consider that WD has been pushed by Microsoft in the latest 3 versions of Windows (8, 8.1 and 10) - which comes with basic Antivirus protection.
  • Windows Defender (built-in baseline security)
  • Existing Free Antivirus (ie. Avast, AVG, Avira etc).
  • Free Antivirus from known Paid-only Antivirus (Kaspersky, McAfee etc).
