Kaspersky has unveiled its latest Internet Security product, boasting a host of new features including a new anti-spam module, a new Safe Money Mode, antivirus engine, and a simplified user interface.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 was unveiled on Monday and promises to help combat the slew of new cyber threats that have emerged this year.
"When developing the new versions of our home user products we paid particular attention to the users' needs as well as the threats they face," said Eugene Kaspersky, chief executive of Kaspersky.
"Knowing that the loss of sensitive data and money are the things that worry users most, we have developed an entire set of new protection technologies to address these concerns."
The Safe Money feature reportedly boasts "a diverse set of protection methods for when the user deals with real money online".
These include a new Safe Browser mode that activates automatically when the user logs onto a banking sites and isolates the payment operation from other online activities to ensure any transaction made is not monitored.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 also adds new Secure Keyboard technology to the company's existing Virtual Keyboard tool. The tool is designed to protect the most sensitive data against keyloggers when in Safe Money mode.
Kaspersky claims the tool also features a "unique Automatic Exploit Prevention technology targets the most sophisticated threats utilising vulnerabilities in popular software", and a "new antivirus engine with better detection rates for the entire scope of emerging cyber threats".
The new tool also promises to offer protection from zero-day exploits adding "Automatic Exploit Prevention technology" that is designed to address some of the most sophisticated threats.
"Exploits have long become the cybercriminals' weapon of choice for performing online attacks known as ‘drive-by downloads' - when a user gets infected just by visiting a certain webpage," the firm said.
"Automatic Exploit Prevention protects Kaspersky Lab's customers against these types of exploits, including those that utilise so-called zero-day vulnerabilities."
Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 are set to be released on 28 August, costing £39.99 and £29.99 respectively.
