Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 works behind-the-scenes to proactively protect your computer against worms, bots, trojans, rootkits, spyware and any virus that may attack your computer. This protection is granted by its real-time and cloud-assisted services, with a huge and continually up-to-date threats' database. Besides, one of the greatest novelties of this software is the fact it includes the new ZetaShield technology, which identifies unknown malware. Also, this version includes support for touch-enabled devices such as tablets. In fact evidence of this functionality is the interface redesign, with a more visually attractive style that facilitates use and comprehension.

Even though this is in award-winning antivirus that has one of the highest detection rates on the market (9.18 out of 10), one of the things users criticize is the fact that Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 does slow down computers’ performance while carrying out its regular security tasks. That is why this application is more often recommended for medium-high power computers.
What does this program offer?
When it comes to web-based activities, this antivirus warns you when links and associated pages are malicious or risky thanks to its URL Advisor. This is performed with color-coded icons, which label sites as ‘Trusted’, ‘Suspicious’ or ‘Dangerous’. Also, it scans incoming and outgoing emails keeping your mailbox free of spam and unwanted messages. Dangerous content is blocked in both cases.
Similarly, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 has a tool called ‘Automatic Exploit Prevention’ which is able to monitor and control the behavior of your computer software, reducing vulnerabilities and preventing the harm attacks and infections can cause if protection is not updated with the latest fixes and patches. Thanks to this functionality you can restrict some applications operations as well as control the launch of executable files and assess how they behave.
