Main features of Kaspersky PURE 2.0

Kaspersky PURE 2.0 is a versatile tool for protecting data on the home network against all kinds of information threats. The application ensures protection against viruses and malware, unknown threats and fraud, it lets you control user access to the computer and the Internet, back up data, and create encrypted containers for confidential information, and manage computer security on the home network from the administrator workstation.

This comprehensive protection covers all channels that are used to receive and transfer data. Flexible customization of every protection component makes Kaspersky PURE 2.0 adaptable to specific user requirements.

* Advanced anti-virus technology of Kaspersky PURE 2.0 provides protection against such modern-day data threats as viruses, trojans, worms, rootkits, bootkits, botnets, and other illegal methods of controlling computers remotely, theft of logins, passwords, and other personal data stored on a computer, spam and phishing, hacker attacks, and unwanted web content.

* Proactive Defense technology of Kaspersky PURE 2.0 provides protection against new threats by using behavior stream signature analysis to monitor and prevent suspicious or dangerous behavior of computer applications.

* Application Control monitors the activity of applications running on the computer and restricts their access to important areas of the operating system and personal data. Applications are grouped as Trusted, Low Restricted, High Restricted, and Untrusted, based on the data of Kaspersky Lab reputation services. The group to which an application has been assigned defines restrictions imposed on its activity.

* Unique Sandbox technologies (SafeDesktop, SafeBrowser, SafeRun) employ virtualization techniques on a lesser or greater scale to create a safe environment for running applications. Safe Run mode allows users to try out new software in isolation, thereby protecting the operating system against any modifications. An unlimited number of web browsers and other applications can be run in Safe Run mode at the same time.

* The personal data protection toolkit automatically denies user access to known phishing sites and blocks key loggers from stealing passwords and access codes.

* Anti-Spam technology employs exact and expert methods to reduce the flow of unsolicited emails considerably. The exact methods apply strict email filtering rules that help identify a message as spam beyond any doubt. The expert methods are used to analyze the email messages that have passed filtering by exact methods.

* Backup and Restore provides storage and protection of important user data (documents, pictures, and music files) against loss and damage by malware, accidental deletion, or hard drive failure. In the event of loss, data can be restored quickly from backups saved in special storages on a user-selected drive.

* Parental Control protects children and teenagers against threats inherent in computer and Internet usage. Parental Control allows setting flexible user-level access restrictions for resources and applications based on user age and experience and lets you view statistical reports on user activity.

* Cutting-edge "transparent" encryption technology provides reliable protection of user data against unauthorized access or theft by creating special data storages called container files. Once mounted, a container file operates as a secure virtual drive. Kaspersky PURE 2.0 ensures that encrypted information remains confidential in case of a virus attack, loss or theft of a USB drive, or when a mobile computer is used on an unsecured Wi-Fi network.

* Password Manager securely stores passwords and other user account data as well as ensures confidential completion of various login forms. Password Manager links passwords and accounts to web pages or Microsoft Windows applications. When a web page or application is loaded, user names and passwords are filled in automatically.

* Home Network Control lets you run virus scan and update tasks for all or some computers on the network, manage data backup, and customize Parental Control settings for any computer on the network directly from the user’s workstation. This allows remote security management of any computer on the home network.
