Hello Friends, :giggle:

It was a pleasant surprise when i installed the new Kaspersky Security Cloud, thinking that it would be another freemium model app with most of the key components locked and it might nag you every now and then for an upgrade. Now, there seem to be no difference between Kaspersky Antivirus and Kaspersky Security cloud, as all the modules present in KAV is now present in KSC free, and thankfully Kaspersky had not disabled the module settings, just like in KFA. And it seem to have other modules like Secure data input, password security check, weak settings control, file back up and file shredder, which are present in their flagship product, Kaspersky Total Security. Application Control, Trusted Application mode and Firewall are the key components missing out. But this setup is adequate for most of the novice users, who use their pc's for general browising and M.S office related stuffs. And this move might greatly impact the free a.v market dominated by Avast, Avira and Bitdefender.

I was able to download and install it from the kaspersky usa website , though the android version failed to install in my phone, saying that it was not available for my region. :sneaky:

Looking for your comments...

Waiting for eu version, definitely going to install this, wondering how light it can get by disabling most of components.

If i could go cf with the kaspersky web blocker only
I think that the EU version is already available. At least, if I can go to Download Free Kaspersky Virus Protection Tools | Kaspersky Lab click on "Kaspersky Security Cloud - Free", which sends me to https://www.kaspersky.com/downloads/thank-you/try-free-cloud-antivirus, and then select "The European Union" > "English" version before I click "Download".

Yes but it asks you to login with kaspersky account, and asks for license. The eu version isnt working yet, but is coming during august

Im using finnish version of kaspersky free, so i bet it will be available on cloud aswell

I don't know how it behaves with a newly created account, but I used an old Kaspersky account and it got activated, even though I have always lived in the EU.

I have tried it several times during last week, i guess its either new account + usa version to get it work, but im fine with KFA for now

The installer is so slow, i rather wait for official release

I wondered if maybe it used special permissions for backed up folders or something akin to such...similar to Easy File Locker for anyone familiar with that program. For backups that should be a simple thing to protect in that way if only the backup program can write to the backup folders.

I can think of some simple ways to make use of that methodology, but so far seems no security company (that I know of) has stepped up to make protected backup a feature of their free program. Just make it impossible for the backup space to be accessed by anything but the backup utility...and then add a very simple watch reflex to let a user know if multiple files have been changed at once, so they won't back them up if the result of ransomeware.

Thx, this sounds like a good program nonetheless.
