Both Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 and Anti-Virus 2014 use the security firm’s own Zeta Shield antivirus technology, which it claims is more effective at stopping targeted attacks on your PC. Kaspersky has also improved its Automatic Exploit Prevention, that checks programs for strange behavior associated with exploits while keeping a close eye on programs that are often exploited like Java.
Another new feature of Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 and Anti-Virus 2014 is the Trusted Applications Mode. This is a dynamic whitelist of apps that Kaspersky deems safe, and in Trusted Applications mode you will only be able to use these programs, in theory guaranteeing that you are safe.
Soon we will publish our comparison of this year’s security software, but for now you can still see which anti-virus suite was best last year.
