Kaspersky AV & Internet Security 2012

Kaspersky Lab announced the availability of its new security products, Kaspersky Lab Anti-Virus 2012 and Kaspersky Lab Internet Security 2012. The new products come with several improvements, but nothing revolutionary groundbreaking.

Both products will make it harder for rootkits to take over your computer and even harder to disable your security features.

A new graphical environment was created, for better access to monitoring tools and system status information. The new environment is also designed to support touch input devices.

According to Kaspersky Lab, the products will offer improved protection for the cloud, and new heuristic technologies will do a much better job identifying phishing sites.

The System Watcher can roll back to previous versions of your system files that were changed by malware, very useful for repairing the damage done by malicious applications.

Full details and pricing can be found at their official product pages, as well as 30 day trials for your to test the product before you purchase.
