For me Kaspersky has always had the highest detection rate and a lightweight antivirus software.

For me Kaspersky has always had the highest detection rate as a lightweight antivirus software. I like using Symantec and Avira of course but Kaspersky definitely score high. I highly value security on antivirus so the endpoint security serves the right balance for me. Why is it necessary to choose a paid antivirus such as the End point security package, simply put hardly any free softwares provide all of web protection, malware protection, mail protection etc. Fact is this one will keep you safe both on the internet and off it I like this.

Pros

Cons

Well one of the only issue I have is that it is slightly heavier on disk usage than some of the free solutions. It is a bit pricier than other software and this maybe an issue for some people. This may be an issue now that the free solutions have been proven to be performing just as well in most aspects as a paid solution

Kaspersky is decent protection that won't slow down your computer

Kaspersky protects my computers without slowing them down. I am confident that I will remain virus free with this software installed.

Pros

This AV is rated among the top 5, and frequently battles for the #1 spot with Bit Defender. It's really easy to manage the devices that you are able to protect with your licenses. It's also easy to transfer licenses from one computer to another.

It has many features and rivals Bit Defender for it's active heuristic virus protection. It does a good job against ransomware in general, and is quick to update virus definitions when there is a new virus out there.

Kaspersky also has a great research team, and they are in the news many times for initial discovery of new viruses.

Cons

Sometimes, Kaspersky doesn't like a certain part of a webpage which is mainstream and considered safe by other antiviruses. You need to select that it's okay to view that part of the page, but the problem is that if you get in the habit of doing that, then you might allow a page that in fact is not safe. So, the biggest con then would be it's a bit overzealous. Sometimes, it's better to have too much security than not enough, but if you are clicking past it and allowing it anyway, it becomes habitual and actually becomes less secure.

Safety exists only when you're not aware of what is protecting you

Trying to install and manage any software in thousands of endpoints, located in different and connected sites, is a challenge. Kaspersky Endpoint Security offers you the ability to do that with low impact for users, computers and network resources. Corporate users won't even know that it's there, how it’s configured and what is secure or not to do, they only have to take care of their business.

Pros

Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) is a cloud database with the reputation of millions of applications and websites and is improved by each user issues. e. g. An infection that occurs anywhere on the planet, can be quickly prevented in other places after the information is stored in KSN.

Policy settings offer a powerful tool to segregate different kind of users and computer resources. Policies can be easily and quickly installed and changed if you have an issue, and need to reduce the effect or improve security.

The corporate license price is very competitive considering the great number of features and aggregated value.

Cons

Heuristic Analysis and System Watcher use a lot of CPU resources and sometimes can cause Excel, Word or Windows to crash, leaving users unsatisfied.

Some updates need to be deployed and managed, instead of being automatically applied by the installed version.

The best Antivirus and security software in the world

I have deployed numerous Antivirus and security software solutions over the years including Norton, McAfee, Panda, and Kaspersky. Of all the deployments I have done, Kaspersky Endpoint Security takes the cake in every aspect. It's solid performance, thorough antivirus engine, and extremely frequent updates (hourly) are unrivaled. The end result is a complete and comprehensive protection from viruses and malware for your computers and devices. When I was allowed to make a recommendation, I always recommended Kaspersky Endpoint Security and my clients always loved it after using it. I have deployed Kaspersky Endpoint Security to small and large business including some mission critical DoD contractors who cannot afford a single security incident due to viruses or malware. With Kaspersky, I always left with confidence. Kaspersky Endpoint Security comes in 3 flavors: Cloud (for personal or small businesses without and IT department onsite), Select which offers a little more control such as application control, and Advanced which includes systems management and encryption.

Pros

Superior virus and malware detection rate, hourly updates, extremely fast scans, low CPU and RAM consumption, small footprint, thorough analysis of unknown threat types, great support services and response time.

Cons

None I can think of.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security is the Excellent Security Tool.

I have hard the best encounter with Kaspersky Endpoint Security. Honestly, we cannot complain in our firm concerning the use and the efficiency of Kaspersky Endpoint Security. It ensures all our computer systems are free from any attack.

Pros

I think I love everything concerning Kaspersky Endpoint Security. One, this product is a "big deal", meaning, no single threat can gain its access to your computer system. It ensures that only the viable, and original software that gain its access/way to your computer system. Again, it has a variety of actions, which the user can direct when there is a malware like deleting or quarantining. The product is so thorough, and comprehensive, making its the only reliable and safest security tool. Lastly, the vendor takes adequate time to learn the dynamics of the security concerns, and hence, it is always updated.

Cons

The only challenges with Kaspersky Endpoint Security are the subscription cost, and the number of users that t allows. That is, it becomes so hard for small enterprises to acquire a full version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security. As a result, the vendor should try to reduce this cost, and increase the number of users.

Remain Safe and Secure with Kaspersky Endpoint Security.

I have had the best encounter with Kaspersky Endpoint Security. I have not had any security attack in my computer. The support team of Kaspersky Endpoint Security also assist us in case of any problem, and this makes it the best security tool on the current market.

Pros

No other computer security tool that is efficient and reliable like Kaspersky Endpoint Security. This product is so severe and comprehensive, where no any malware that can find its way to your computer system. It quickly take stern actions to those threats that may put your system at risk. Kaspersky Endpoint Security ensures that only the genuine software that get installed and used in a computer, and this limits the vulnerability of your system. Again, no malicious site that Kaspersky Endpoint Security can allow one to get into.

Cons

As many indicates, something good also has a price. Buying a package of Kaspersky Endpoint Security requires some extra cash. Many individuals and organizations may desire to use it, but they may lack adequate cash for the pack. Again, using Kaspersky Endpoint Security is not an easy task. This software is complex and also require a big Computer RAM for it to run successfully.

Ensure Your Computer System is Secure and updated.

Nonetheless, Kaspersky Endpoint Security ensures the security measures of an organization are biffed up, and no one who can interfere with the normal functioning of your systems by gaining an access. It blocks all the malicious sites and software. The support team of Kaspersky Endpoint Security are also understanding and listening.

Pros

I love the security capabilities of Kaspersky Endpoint Security. I doubt any other vendor who can create such a reliable security platform, where all the malware and malicious sites get blocked. Unlike other tools, Kaspersky Endpoint Security often conduct market analysis, and as a result, they introduce new improvements, which deal with the ever emerging security threats. Above all, Kaspersky Endpoint Security supports a comprehensive security scan, which identifies all the security threats and take the most efficient action.

Cons

Kaspersky Endpoint Security is so complex to implement and use. In fact, one must have advance computer skills to comfortably run this software. Again, Kaspersky Endpoint Security requires huge implementation amount of cash, and this means, an organization must be well loaded.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security: the Mr. antivirus

Overall it is an excellent security tool. Protects your PC from any kind of threat to perfection. I would improve the performance during the analysis process to make it leaner.

Pros

Was the first antivirus that I installed on my personal PC, as the license was included with the purchase of the PC. I must say that until the expiration date I used it a lot and every threat was immediately blocked along with the programs that were dangerous for the security of the PC. I consider it perhaps one of the main antiviruses. provides a truly complete protection.

Cons

The user interface is not the clearest, you need to know a little bit the system before finding what you need. The price is high, consequently it is aimed only at a specific targets, maybe for those who use the PC at a slightly higher level, which requires an adequate level of security and therefore more high. threat analysis takes a long time, and also interfere with the usability of the PC. in fact, it is slowed down by the analysis process and in order not to make it worse, it would be better not to overload the computer's capacity with other apps at the same time.

Best Bang for the Buck

I don't believe the Ruskies are trying to infiltrate us through Kaspersky, and if you can get past the fact that the software originated in Russia, it is a very efficient, cost effective solution for you security needs.

Pros

I have used numerous antivirus programs over the past 20+ years and find Kaspersky the most comprehensive solution without being overbearing. Most other solutions act as if they're the only program that needs to run on your PC, taking precious computer cycles and causing the computer to bog down. Kaspersky works in the background and doesn't tend to slow down the PC. It also doesn't provide constant popups that are obvious advertising ploys.

Cons

While it is a comprehensive program, from an administrative perspective, it is extremely difficult to determine how to roll out updates from the central console. The good news is that it's very easy to get a live person in tech support and they are happy to guide you through the process. Unfortunately, if you don't access the console on a regular basis, you forget what they showed you.

Best Antivirus software I have ever used

Pros

I am using Kaspersky for many years and it was helped me all the time by detecting malicious activity on my laptop as well as mobile. The software is super easy to use and doing its best by residing in the background. As per my knowledge internet and portable dives are more vulnerable to infect. Kaspersky is actively blocking malicious web sites as well as auto run viruses automatically and provide 100% real time protection for me.

So far it was detected thousands of malicious software which was not detected by other slimier product available at the market Including ransomware.

The antivirus engine is up to the date all the time and actively fight against newly imagine virus and malicious codes.

The centralized management and automatic installation is saved thousand of man hours so far. Reach reporting interface is also helping for management decisions as well as budget planing.


Cons

PC clients are causing some performance lag when using.

Despite Cost, Kaspersky Endpoint Security is the Only Reliable Security Tool.

In my view, Kaspersky Endpoint Security is the only solution for all security threats in a computer. I lack any malware that can bypass Kaspersky Endpoint Security. Again, the vendor is always on the look out, to release new updates for new threats. Kaspersky Endpoint Security is the best Security Tool for all organizations.

Pros

I simply like the fact that Kaspersky Endpoint Security is the only reliable, and safest security tool that an organization can ever have. With this product, be sure that no even a single malware which can gain access to your computer system. Again, it instantly blocks all the applications that are malicious, and this improves the security of an organization.

Cons

Nonetheless, Kaspersky Endpoint Security is a very expensive tool, with limited users. I mean, there is no other security tool that demands huge amount of cash like Kaspersky Endpoint Security. Again, it is hard to use, where an individual without adequate computer skills cannot customize it. Lastly, it is "heavy" which means, it can slow down a computer system.

Keep Your Compuers Safe With Kaspersky Endpoint Security

Kaspersky Endpoint Security has been very useful in our organization as it keeps our computer systems safe and efficient. It is a must have PC security tool.

Pros

What I like about Kaspersky Endpoint Security is that it is easy to implement and use. It is a reliable computer security software that will keep away viruses and malware. The best part is that these PC security tool works in the background and will constantly monitor and secure your PC without interfering with other programs that you are running. Also, when browsing, Kaspersky Endpoint Security will keep scanning websites for viruses and malware and will warn you in case of you are about to open a malicious site. I also like the fact that Kaspersky Endpoint Security offers more security features than other PC security tools in the market.

Cons

If you want better security, then you need to upgrade which more costly than the basic version. Otherwise, we have not encountered other major issues.

A Hero with no Cape!

Overall, it had provided the protection needed to hush away all kind of viruses, and as it's being updated all the time, so far any latest malware couldn't get through its secure walls.

Pros

Kaspersky is being used on all our work computers across the department, and also on our personal Laptops. It's a super security guard against all the malware, the best feature is that it's always running in the background; checking emails and computer for viruses, and keeping us secure with minimal system usage. and it's very easy to configure in any machine.

Cons

Kaspersky sometime becomes very strict and blocks any USB drive attached to the machine, even thou the device is clean but due to its suspicion of having a virus in the device, it just doesn't allow the device to connect. I say it should be more accurate in scanning than being strict.

Identify more advanced threats than any other security provider, discover the darkest and most sophi

Kaspersky Endpoint Security, is designed to work in any IT environment, using full next-generation technology resources, allows you to capture the analysis of large volumes of data to discover even the darkest and most sophisticated cyber attacks, for this and many reasons I always recommend it

Pros

Kaspersky Endpoint Security, Guarantees great security, protects against ransomware, exploits and the most advanced cyber threats. Provides an optimized resource, is packed with powerful security controls, automated vulnerability management patches, integrated encryption, helps increase productivity through cloud-enabled use controls, simplifies security management with a unified console, protects diverse environments PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android.

Cons

Although it is very expensive, it is worth the investment. When antivirus makes a complete scan it slows down the performance of my PC, but it is worth waiting a bit for the security of your computer it deserves.

The best antivirus although visually confusing

Pros

Since I had my first computer, the first antivirus I had was Kaspersky. Although the first impression is that it is a bad program, the truth is one of the best. It completely protects you from any malignant virus, giving full protection to the entire computer system. Perfectly protects from the windows, to the internet navigation system.

Kaspersky has a slightly rough interface, but fulfills its function to indicate to the user in one way or another, how to take advantage of all the functionality offered by this program.

Cons

Something that I have always criticized Kaspersky is that the design of the interface seems a bit confusing. I've always seen it as something rough and unattractive to the eye. From its opaque colors, to its confusing options is a program that has a difficult curve to enter it. One last criticism is that I think the price for the program is a bit high

Very versatile protection tool, with many security features and also some impact on performance

It is very good antivirus (security) solution, very complete, however it is also heavy on resources. I would recommend it to those who need to consider security seriously (inexperienced users especially) as set it and forget it solution. Never use it on older or slower performing computer.

Pros

Kaspersky Endpoint Secuirty is not only traditional antivirus solution, it also provides next generation features and can compete with new players like SentinelOne, Cylance, etc. It can work without definitions to find threats.

Cons

Exclusion process needs to be improved, some customers might have software that might be risky but do not want it scanned. Although it does offer to exclude some directories or files, this is not by default.
It is heavy on resources when everything is enabled and slows down even highest performance computers (i7, SSD, 8GB RAM).
It can not work as only next-gen endpoint security, traditional definitions are always used.

Kaspersky security powerful, some bugs

Overall it has been good. We get phishing emails every now and then and it always brings up the warning. No computers have been infected since implemented.

Pros

It seems that Kaspersky does a good job helping to keep malware and viruses off of the computer. I use it at work, and also at home. Like most anti-virus software the auto scans are helpful so you don't have to remember to scan every now and then.

Cons

Sometimes the licenses can get buggy. I have noticed this at work, and at home. Especially when you have to re-purchase the software and license key. Sometimes on multiple computers it gives an error that the key isn't correct, or has already reached the maximum machines limit, even though it is no where near maximum. Every now and then with a deep scan it can crash the computer, or take a very long time to complete. I understand the deeps can takes longer, but a day to scan seems excessive.

security of the future

In general it is an experience that I can recommend to many people, this application has saved my team from several threats since when I notify myself, I can be clear about what I install or what I am missing.

Pros

is an application very easy to use, does not require manuals for its use due to the distribution of the interface of the application. keeps my computer protected and informs me of possible threats that may affect my PC.

Cons


Currently I work in a company that is dedicated to providing an application that offers POS services, and the antivirus takes the application as a threat to the computer. where in occasions it is not enough to configure the exeption of the executable of the application but also the exclusion of the complete folder of the application must be placed.
Occasionally when exceptions are configured, the equipment must be restarted and that makes the procedure more complicated.

The best security for your computer system

The best guard for your pc against vulnerabilities and I would happily recommend this product to anyone. Ideal for individual use to coperate level.

Pros

A sound virus guard which protects the computer from viruses, malware or other dangerous programs. Can be easily installed.
Auto scan of Kaspersky will scan the pc as requested and don’t have to be bothered to scan it manually. I have never been attacked from viruses from the time I shifted to Kaspersky security. It detects many crucial viruses, alerts the user, takes measures to eliminate them and protect your pc against them.
I am confident in using internet with this application on my pc. It blocks me from logging into vulnerable sites which is really a great job
Its purchase price is also reasonable.

Cons

Full scan takes a lot of time and this one is complex to use.

Simple but reliable antivirus

Kaspersky Endpoint Security provides security against a broad range of threats and malicious programs. Although we deal with very sensitive information, we have not suffered data security breach or cyber attach since we started using it. It is slow when performing deep scans but it has always met our security standards.

Pros

The antivirus uses advanced security technologies to protect our computer systems from viruses, malware, or other dangerous programs. It’s very easy to set up and manage. It does not occupy much space or generate the disturbing popups no and then like most antivirus. It gives real-time alerts that help me take action to prevent our system. Since it is close to two years since we started using this tool without any issues, I always feel safe when accessing data from the system or browsing online.

Cons

Deep scanning takes time. It seems stuck at times and they need to work on that. They should also increase the frequency of updates to offer protection against emerging potentially dangerous programs.
