To counter such attacks, Kaspersky Lab said it developed a number of technologies to provide protection for the digital assets of Internet users. Such technologies were incorporated into the design and development of the 2013 versions of the Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS) and Kaspersky Anti-Virus (KAV) consumer products, the company?s latest software security products. Kaspersky Lab Southeast Asia channel sales director Jimmy Fong said the newest version of Kaspersky Lab?s flagship consumer suite is ideal for Filipinos who are becoming among the fastest creators and consumers of digital content. The use of online shopping mostly to buy budget travel tickets and assorted products from group buying or discount sites is on an upward trend in the Philippines, he said. Incidentally, a recent report called Web Index by the World Wide Web Foundation led by Internet inventor Tim Berners-Lee showed the Philippines ranked 32nd out of 61 countries for its use of the Web. Fong said this is an indicator that Filipinos are now more connected to the Web than ever before, which will eventually affect their online habits as well as their virtual and real-life assets. ?It only tells us that Filipinos have become highly savvy in using the Internet. The report also means the infrastructure is improving and catching up in terms of speed. We see that Filipinos are now embracing the Web and integrating it into their daily lives. But this would mean that the Philippines can be a potential target to cybercriminals,? Fong said. The features of the new products, he said, include: Automatic Exploit Prevention technology

Kaspersky Lab has vast experience in detecting and blocking exploits ? malware that utilizes vulnerabilities in legitimate, but security-flawed software to infect the system. Based on this knowledge, Kaspersky Lab have created a new technology ? Automatic Exploit Prevention ? capable of blocking even new and currently unknown exploits, or malware that uses the most dangerous zero-day vulnerabilities.

Specialized Safe Money technology to protect online purchases

Available only in Kaspersky Internet Security 2013, is Safe Money aimed at protecting real-life credit card or bank account during online banking or shopping activities with a diverse set of security tools. This includes a specialized ?Safe Browser? mode, isolating money-related business from other online activities, and checking the authenticity of commercial websites. Safe Money will also automatically evaluate the computer for potential vulnerabilities. For an extra layer of protection, Safe Money mode utilizes an on-screen Virtual Keyboard ? allowing the user to enter passwords and credit card numbers without a physical keyboard, rendering keylogging malware useless.

New antivirus engine with detection rates for ?malicious programs

The previous editions of Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Anti-Virus regularly show more than 99 percent detection rates in independent tests, with up to 100 percent for the most prevalent malware. The new versions of the consumer products are expected to perform better and to block even the rarest and quickly-spreading malware.

Enhanced anti-spam module in Kaspersky Internet Security 2013

Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 combats unwanted mail ? the most common security threat ? using a completely new anti-spam engine that works seamlessly with the user?s favorite email client.

Better performance and simplified user experience

In Kaspersky Internet Security 2013, Kaspersky Lab made sure that during the most frequent tasks, such as Web browsing or the installation of new software, the protection is effective but inconspicuous. The user interface in the new products has been streamlined for a better experience, with fewer clicks and menus required to access the tools and information needed.
