HCM CITY — Kaspersky Lab has updated its security solutions for home users.
Its latest poducts – Kaspersky Anti-virus, Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Total Security – were better than their predecessors in a number of ways, the company said.
They were faster at almost every process and required less operating memory and fewer other resources.
They could monitor outgoing requests to IP addresses and HTTP requests so that if a file or process tried to access a server known to be malicious, the web antivirus would detect and block the request.
Starting with the 2019 versions, Kaspersky Lab products detected and deleted adware by default just as they did with malware. Adware could be harmful, annoyed users, distracted them, and could download other adware programmes or files that could be directly malicious.
Siang Tiong Yeo, general manager, Kaspersky Lab SEA, said: "Việt Nam has become one of the fastest growing countries in Southeast Asia, both in terms of economy and internet use. This made the country a lucrative target for cybercriminals.
"In fact our data shows that in the third quarter of 2018 nearly one out of 10 Vietnamese mobile users were targeted with malware.
“In terms of online attacks, 21.5 per cent of users face threats. These numbers underline the need for the right protection at the right time in Việt Nam. Each person needs special protection that suits their unique digital lifestyle, and this is why we create solutions that are highly adaptable to each individual.” — VNS
