New cutting-edge features and significantly improved old ones, as well as further reduced user interaction are some of the most prominent things making the product different from the 2014 build.

Consequently, you can safely shop online, enjoy social networking to its fullest, manage your banking activities via the Internet, and do many other things on the web without worrying about any sort of intrusion or privacy breach. Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 fulfills what’s promised, and does it pretty much flawlessly.
Installing Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 is a simple and perfectly comprehensive process. The software guides you step by step through this procedure, so all it takes to set it up is make literally a few clicks – there’s nothing out of the ordinary here. Along with the not-so-flexible licensing scheme presupposing no “up to 3” devices offer, the vendor provides potential customers with an alternative 30-day free trial which is fully functional.
Some of the things to keep in mind before you proceed with the setup are as follows: you should close all running applications and check whether any incompatible third-party security software is installed on your PC – the list of such apps is available on Kaspersky’s website. It’s still okay if you don’t do the latter beforehand though, the utility will not fail to check for such conflicting software on its own during installation.
One more thing to note is the Setup Wizard offers you become part of the above-mentioned Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) to further get their lab notified if some new infections are spotted on your machine, and get those added to the database in real time.
Having completed the install, you should update the database – this might take some time and data volume, but do keep in mind these files are critical for the software to reliably protect you, so be sure this procedure goes all the way. This being done, run a full scan to determine the current security state of your machine and then get the detected infections eliminated (if any).
There has been some revamping done over the user interface of Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 as compared with the suite’s previous version. While we immediately recognized the product by the general color scheme and graphics which, by the way, are pretty eye-catching, the new build’s main pane has larger buttons (Scan, Update, Safe Money, Parental Control) that are now in the central part of the home screen. There’s also the same PC monitor icon reflecting your current protection level. Overall, the interface is not hard to get accustomed to and use at all.
System performance impact called forth by this product isn’t as heavy as it used to be. Our system didn’t have a hard time processing Kaspersky Internet Security’s tasks. During scans and updates, the CPU usage goes up of course, but we saw no lags opening and running applications. As thorough as it is, the scanning and cleanup take a while, so be prepared for some extra coffee time. To sum it up, Kaspersky Lab’s experts have obviously worked hard on the performance facet to deliver a lighter 2015 suite that doesn’t slow down the system a lot anymore.
There is hardly any Internet security feature that isn’t integrated into the software being reviewed here. The product helps you confidently face a broad range of the present-day malware challenges, providing tremendous functionality and making it easy for the user to control, manage and customize it.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 goes well beyond the online protection alone as its feature set also includes the antivirus, parental control, file advisor, vulnerability scan, safe run, system rollback options and application control. Enhanced by these capabilities, the program appears to be an all-in-one kit suiting virtually anyone regardless of the extent of defense required. Let’s now focus on some essential web safety features the product delivers.
With all the above features built-in, Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 covers all the different facets of cyber protection. The compound security principle (innovative cloud approach and regular defense) helps the suite stay on top of the bad stuff. It secures your web browsing, social networking, email, online banking, shopping and effectively blocks spam, spyware, rootkits, hijackers, trojans, worms, keyloggers and adware.
