The recently released 2013 range of Kaspersky Lab security solutions, including Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013, have been designed to combat the increase in malicious content that users need to deal with daily as a result of being more connected.
“Protecting yourself in this digital age has become foremost on the minds of many consumers the world over. South Africans are very security conscious and this has spilled over into the online realm as well. Increasingly, people are looking for solutions that are capable of protecting them while engaging with family and friends on social networks,” says Riaan Badenhorst, Head of Operations for Kaspersky Lab Africa.
A recent study by Kaspersky Lab has found that in South Africa, the most featured security issues are related to spam, unwanted content, and viral infections. While fraudulent pop-up windows and data leaks are less prevalent, they should still be addressed to avoid any negative impact on users.
While South Africans do not feel the impact of mobile security issues as some other parts of the world yet, Badenhorst believes that this will be the next battleground in the fight for online safety.
“With the cost of Internet access and mobile devices making it more affordable for people to be connected anytime and anywhere, we have ensured that solutions like Kaspersky Mobile Security and Kaspersky Tablet Security meet the need for protecting users wherever they might find themselves,” adds Badenhorst.
Kaspersky Lab products have been designed to provide people with protection from malicious programmes, hacker attacks, spam, and spyware. Such products include Kaspersky Security for Android – designed to protect Android devices and the personal information stored on them. Kaspersky ONE – a one-licence solution to protect ones PCs, Macs, Android smartphones and Android tablets, as well as Kaspersky PURE 2.0 – a perfect security for all of one’s family’s PCs, identities, passwords, documents, photos and more.
“The latest range of Kaspersky Lab solutions provide users with an effective option to protect themselves while engaging in their online activities whether it be shopping, banking, browsing, or social networking,” concludes Badenhorst.
