Kaspersky Lab has launched updated versions of Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Total Security to help people care for their devices as much as they care for their home members.
According to the Russian multinational cyber security and anti-virus provider, there are now more devices than people and pets in every home.
Increased connectivity has raised safety concerns, as according to Kaspersky, 39% of people leave their devices unprotected from cyber threats.
To help people care for their connected devices, the latest versions of Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Total Security is designed to protect the household.
In its annual research, Kaspersky found that 63% of internet users are concerned about phishing emails and websites.
To address this concern, Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Total Security include anti-phishing technology to prevent users from falling victim to vulnerabilities.
Kaspersky’s research found 60% of people are concerned their children may have uncontrolled access to inappropriate content online and the latest version of Kaspersky Total Security allows parents to specify time limits for specific devices in the household, restrict the applications children can use and prevent access to pages with adult content, obscene language or information about drugs.
Elena Kharchenko, head of consumer product management at Kaspersky Lab, said: “Our devices are affecting the way we and our families live our lives. They give us the power to connect, learn, communicate and complete essential transactions wherever we are. They enable our lives, and it’s therefore no surprise there are more devices than people and pets per home.
“But as we know from our research, our constant connectivity brings with it natural concerns for online safety – from fears about falling victim to scams, to worries about what our children are seeing online.”
