Kaspersky releases Anti-Virus and Internet Security 2012
By Mike Williams | Published June 7, 2011, 11:12 AM

Russian security company Kaspersky has dropped the beta tag from Anti-Virus 2012 and Internet Security 2012 products, launching both today. While there are no revolutionary changes on offer, Kaspersky has provided more than enough general improvements and enhancements to justify giving the programs a closer look.

Significant low-level changes sees both Anti-Virus and Internet Security 2012 offering strong protection even earlier in the boot process, for instance, making it harder for rootkits to modify the operating system, and blocking attempts by malware to disable the antivirus engine.

More visible modifications include the new interface, which makes it easier to monitor your security status, and track completed and ongoing scans. The tweaked gadget ensures you can launch many tasks directly from the desktop, and the support for touchscreens is a welcome addition.

Kaspersky reports that its cloud protection has been significantly improved, while new heuristic technologies do a much better job of detecting phishing websites.
