Kaspersky has released the newest version of their complete security suite called Kaspersky Pure 3.0 Total Security for Real Time Malware Protection against viruses, malware and spyware as well as other security features. Kaspersky Pure 3.0 includes malware protection for both real time and scanning as well as other handy tools like password manager and online backup.
Kaspersky Pure 3.0 allows protection for up to three Windows computers and even allows control of those extra computers for virus scanning, updating and other features within the Kaspersky Pure software. This means one networked computer can control all the Kaspersky functions of other networked computers without having to actually go to that computer.
For simple home networks where one computer is in a different part of the home being able to update, run scans or backup your computer is only a few clicks away but the Kaspersky Pure 3.0 offers much more for an ultimate PC security solution. Malware and viru protection is only the tip of the protection you get with secure cloud based storage for backups, secure online banking and shopping, password management and encryption for important files.
Security suites these days are pretty common and keeping people interested in your brand of not only malware and virus protection but other features is what is going to set one program or suite apart form others come time to purchase something. If you can get a password manager, online storage and other features like those offered by Kaspersky in their newest security solution without having to pay separately for them you can get people interested in your program.
Anitvirus and other malware is just the beginning with Kaspersky and they do offer a good range of features for their full security solution in one program with a very simple installation and setup. You can buy Kaspersky PURE 3.0 over the internet or as a boxed set with a simple and quick installation even if your computer is infected with malware or viruses.
You can create a rescue disc for installing and removing malware from a computer that is infected including ransom ware which is a particular virus that infects a computer and tells the owner that in order to continue using the PC you need to pay to remove the infection. Another common ransom ware is a fake FBI warning that says you need to pay because you did something wrong or went to an illegal site and need to pay fines to the government.
I received an infected computer from a relative during the review period for my copy of Kaspersky PURE and used a rescue disc for the program to remove the infection without having full control of the computer. I created a Rescue disc on a USB flash drive to allow me to get into and recover the operating system form the ransom ware and clean out all parts of the infection.
Once I ran the scans I did not use the program so a quick uninstall removed the Kaspersky PURE program easily so I could install a different program for security that my relative had been using but did not save them from the ransom ware infection in the first place. Sometimes we cannot help ourselves and accidentally infect our own computer by downloading software and installing other things o\n our computers which is probably how my relative got infected in the first place.

While this specific example may not be useful to everyone looking at buying Kaspersky PURE it does illustrate the usefulness of a suite of programs in being able to create the rescue disc for another computer to remove an infection even if you don’t plan on a full installation. Kaspersky has other features that are just as useful on a day to day basis such as the password manager and parental controls which are both great ways to make access as easy as possible while still keeping day to day security always at the forefront.
Kaspersky PURE is yet another greta product and even though I did have some installation problems on a second computer I was able to find answers in the Kaspersky forum to solve my instllation problems and get the program fully installed and running. I now have full control of several computers on my network and can easily ensure I have current protection and can update and scan from any location on my network.
Kaspersky PURE is a greta suite of programs and doe sinlcude the top virus protection that is also independently tested to ensure it works onn current and past infections from several companies including AV Comparatives. Independent testing is important to ensure the company is using the best protection you can buy for your computer security instead of cheating you out of money for protection that is less than the best.
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 is a great security suite and one that is easy to use without having to refer to the company or their website for help but rest assured if you do need help a chat, forum posting and one on one help is available for purchased products. If you are having problems a quick search of their knowledge base may turn up a simple answer but chats and emails may also give you the help you need for particularly difficult problems.
While using the Kaspersky PURE 3.0 program I did not have any problems I could not solve with simple help form the questions already answered in their forums and frequently asked questions. The program has installed easily on a couple of my computers and has been invaluable for my day to day work with simple tasks such as password management
