Offers to open the website in a special, protected mode — to keep your credit card number and personal data safe from cybercriminals

Secure Keyboard and
Protecting you against identity theft and suspicious websites — Improved!
Cybercriminals are using increasingly sophisticated ways to infect users’ computers or steal personal information — so that they can take over their victims’ identities and commit fraud. Kaspersky Internet Security 2014:
Uses the latest cloud-based and proactive anti-phishing technologies — to prevent you from being tricked into providing valuable personal data to phishing websites
Displays colour-coded tags next to all web links — to advise you of the danger level of the link and subsequent pages
Ensuring the applications on your PC are safe — Improved!
If the operating system or any applications running on your PC haven’t been updated with the latest fixes, they could be vulnerable to malware attacks. Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 scans your PC for these vulnerabilities and:
Analyses and controls the actions of any programs that contain vulnerabilities — to prevent harm being caused
Gives you the option of blocking all untrusted applications — so only programs that Kaspersky guarantees to be safe are allowed to run on your PC
Maintaining your PC’s performance — Improved!
Effective anti-malware and Internet security doesn’t have to impact your PC’s performance. Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 has been optimised for performance, so it:
Protects your PC without constantly disturbing you with questions and alerts
Checks the reputation of all the applications and websites you launch, analyses program behaviour, updates its own malware database, and more — all without any significant effect on your PC’s performance

Innovative hybrid approach – delivering real-time anti-malware protection
With over 200,000 new malicious programs appearing every day, it’s vital that your PC has the best in anti-malware protection. Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 combines traditional, proactive and cloud-based anti-malware technologies to deliver real-time defences:
Kaspersky’s latest anti-malware engine protects PCs against all types of malware, including:
Bots… and more
To deliver a rapid response to the emergence of new malware, Kaspersky also uses cloud-assisted techniques. The cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) continually gathers information about new malware threats from millions of consenting users’ computers. This information enables Kaspersky to protect its customers against the very latest threats without having to wait for a new malware signature to be added to the malware database on customers’ PCs.
Even if you don’t consent to KSN automatically collecting threat information from your computer, your PC will still benefit from KSN’s ability to deliver a more rapid response to new and emerging malware.
Automatic Exploit Prevention
Even if your PC – and the applications you run on it – have not been kept up to date with the latest patches and fixes, Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 can prevent exploitation of vulnerabilities by:
Controlling the launch of executable files from applications that contain vulnerabilities
Analysing the behaviour of executable files – to identify similarities with malicious programs
Restricting how applications that contain vulnerabilities are allowed to operate
Trusted Applications Mode
This new Kaspersky security technology uses information from Kaspersky’s Whitelisting Service to restrict which applications are allowed to run on your PC. Kaspersky is the only Internet security software supplier that has its own Whitelisting Lab. The lab assesses applications to establish whether they are safe for customers to run on their computers.
When you enable the Trusted Applications Mode, only applications that Kaspersky designates as ‘trusted’ will run on your PC. All other applications will be restricted.
Protection against screen lockers
Blocker Trojan viruses can prevent you from using your PC until you pay ‘ransom’ money for the blocker’s restrictions to be removed. If a cybercriminal ever uses a Blocker Trojan to try and take control of your PC, just activate Kaspersky’s protection against screen lockers and Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 will:
Stop any dangerous processes
Launch the necessary treatment procedures
In the unlikely event of malware finding its way onto your PC, Kaspersky’s unique System Watcher technology will:
Detect dangerous behaviour on your PC
Enable you to undo or roll back most types of malicious action
Optimised antivirus databases
With Kaspersky Internet Security 2014, your PC only needs to store relatively small antivirus databases. This helps to:
Minimise the impact on your computer’s performance
Reduce the time taken to install and update your Kaspersky security software
Internet protection – defends you against sophisticated, web-based malware attacks
Every month, hundreds of millions of web-borne infections and network security attacks are blocked. With Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 running on your PC, you’re free to enjoy the Web to the fullest extent… without constantly having to worry about Internet-based threats:
Kaspersky URL Advisor uses cloud-based data about the reputation of websites to alert you about links to suspicious and dangerous sites. Colour-coded indicator icons show you whether a link is:
Kaspersky’s anti-phishing engine – and its regularly updated anti-phishing database – defends you against Internet fraudsters’ attempts to access your personal information.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 reliably filters out unwanted messages and delivers reports about any detected spam.
Safe Money – protects your money when you’re online banking or shopping
With Kaspersky Internet Security 2014, whenever you attempt to log in to an online bank, payment system website or shopping website, Kaspersky’s unique Safe Money technology protects your money and your personal information, by:
Comparing the website’s URL against a database of secure websites
Checking the certificate used to set up the secure connection, to prevent you being directed to a fake site
Checking your PC for any operating system vulnerabilities that could affect online banking
Automatically offering to open the website in Kaspersky’s special Safe Money mode – for an extra level of security against the theft of your personal and financial information
The latest version of Safe Money also gives you:
A choice of web browsers that can be used for Safe Money activities
An extended list of websites that are already supported by Safe Money – and the option to add further sites to the list
Secure Keyboard and Virtual Keyboard – protect your data from keyloggers
Because cybercriminals use keylogger programs and screen-capture malware to record the keys that you press to enter your bank account details, credit card number or other valuable information, Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 includes two special security technologies:
Whenever you visit a bank or payment website – or enter a password within any web page – Kaspersky’s Secure Keyboard feature is automatically activated. Secure Keyboard lets you enter data via your PC’s physical keyboard, safe in the knowledge that your information cannot be accessed by keyloggers.
Instead of using your keyboard to enter sensitive information – such as passwords and account details – the Virtual Keyboard feature lets you use mouse clicks to enter data so your valuable information can’t be tracked or stolen by keyloggers, hackers or identity thieves.
Optimised for ease of use and performance
If security software is simple to set up and manage, it’s more likely to be used more effectively. Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 is designed to provide you with easy-to-use PC protection that doesn’t drain your PC’s performance:
Improved user interface
The main display window has been updated to comply with the latest thinking on efficient user interfaces.
Only frequently used settings are included on the main interface – so they’re easier to use and navigate.
Redesigned and revised scan features
The application’s redesigned Task Manager makes it easier to view the status of scanning processes and to see how security processes are making use of your PC’s resources.
Optimised for Windows
Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 has been optimised for Windows 8.
Fast start-up, shutdown and reaction times
