Review: Kaspersky Internet Security 2009

01 Dec 2008

Kaspersky’s Internet Security suite gets its annual makeover, adding functions like virtual keyboards, secured wi-fi connections and a host of anti-malware provisions to its already solid offering.

Pros: The interface is crisp and easy to understand, and the new functions do make the overall package more appealing. The base licence covers up to three PCs, which is good value for the asking price. Once you’ve gone through the install process, the suite basically runs itself, so you don’t have to be an IT boffin to understand it.

Cons: Updates were comparatively slow to download, and like a lot of firewalls, Kaspersky’s can be terribly chatty when it’s first setting up all of your applications.

Verdict: A robust security suite, but you’ll need patience when it’s updating.
