Computer Shopper named Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 as ‘Best Buy’

Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management
solutions, announces that the UK magazine Computer Shopper has awarded
Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 its ‘Best Buy’ rating for an antivirus
solution.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 received a five-star
rating and Best Buy status following the comparative testing of 11
popular security solutions that included freeware, shareware and
commercial versions.

The products were rigorously tested against real threats that are
currently live on the Internet – malicious programs that use drive-by
downloads to infect users’ machines without their knowledge. The
protection solutions were installed on identical PCs running the
Windows XP SP2 operating system.The products were rated on detection
level, quality of system recovery, use of system resources as well as
the number of false positives generated by a collection of clean files
which, just to make things more difficult, included potentially
unwanted programs such as password crackers. How easy the product
interfaces were to navigate, the variety of useful functions and the
retail price were also taken into consideration.
