Kaspersky Lab has just released their latest and greatest FREE version of their flagship product, Kaspersky Antivirus. And while half of the world is still panicking about Russian conspiracy bullshit, this one is a golden nugget. A really big one.
As you can see, it hasn’t changed much on the outside compared to version 2018. It’s still a very pleasant interface design.
What’s really new and exciting is what’s underneath the interface and you can see this in settings…
Granted, they have locked down the settings, but as an expert user, I believe their out of the box setup is great and doesn’t really need any fiddling with settings. Sure, I liked file heuristics at High sensitivity, but we gained System Watcher.
If you don’t know what System Watcher is, it’s an incredibly sophisticated behavior blocker capable of detecting malware based on behavior and not signatures. I’ve tested it several months ago and it was spectacular. Paired with Kaspersky’s KSN cloud, really good file heuristics and excellent signatures and we have a product that will seriously challenge pretty much all existing free antiviruses like avast!, AVIRA, AVG, Panda Free and Bitdefender Free. It’s REALLY good and while I’m an avast! aficionado, but I really like this new Kaspersky Antivirus Free 2019. It just works out of the box.
Give it a try, you might be surprised how nice it is.
