An annual license of Kaspersky Internet Security 2020 for three devices is set at $59.99. The Internet Security Suite is a perfect balance for most users and contains almost all the necessary features fit for home and small business users.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2020 has been designed to work with the latest build of Windows 10. We will take a look at the features KIS 2020 brings to the table before divulging into the promotion that provides 90 days of free trial. If you are already familiar with KIS, skip to the trial license section below where you can download the offline installer of Kaspersky Internet Security 2020 along with the license key / activation code.
The trial serial-key is valid for activation on unlimited devices and provides unrestricted access to features that is comparable to the full version of the program.
Kaspersky Lab has long been a name of trust among computer users to safeguard themselves from virus attacks and malicious programs. Internet users are growing rapidly and it has become the top infrastructure for cyber criminals to exploit. Hackers use it to not only spread malicious programs but also steal credit card information and other personal information. Kaspersky offers a wide range of protection solutions for consumers with Kaspersky Antivirus, Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Total Security to battle these threats and protect themselves.
The first thing that might be a bit of a turn-off for some users while buying the software is, the website, which is not very user-friendly. The trial download option of the software is not readily available in an intuitive place like most other websites. Thankfully, the installation procedure is rather straightforward.
The tiny installer securely downloads the required files from the internet. The user has the option to opt out of the Kaspersky Secure Network (KSN) during installation or anytime later. KSN helps improve performance and detection by sharing scan data with Kaspersky from users all over the world.
After the first run, there is a slight delay in start-up, which becomes negligible afterwards. Overall, the computer performance is not notably degraded, as was the case for almost all antivirus programs several years back. This is also reflected in the scores of both av-test.org and av-comparatives.org, two very reliable sites for ranking and comparing performance of antivirus programs.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2020 scores among the highest in most independent antivirus test sites. It is listed as Advanced+ in both performance test and malware protection test carried out by AV-Comparatives. With very high virus detection and blocking rate and fewer false positives in the real world protection test, it gives user complete protection and peace of mind. In tests by AV-Test, Kaspersky Internet Security 2020 scores a perfect score in both protection and usability while falling a bit short in the performance criteria.
There are several impressive components found in KIS 2020 that makes it stand out as not only an antivirus software but also a sentinel for the computer. The ‘Safe Kids’ feature helps parents restrict the use of applications installed on the computer by setting a password. Internet access as well as specific applications can be restricted for usage at predefined times. The granular controls can be applied individually to each user. Paired with the built-in parental control feature of Windows 10, this can come as a sigh of relief for concerned parents.
Another very carefully designed tool is the Safe Money feature. This tool along with the on-screen keyboard add-on ensures absolute security during an online transaction. Although, instead of opening the payment page in a new browser window, it would have been better if it worked as a plugin of existing web browsers and thus retaining browser settings. However, since this is supposed to make transactions safer from info logging apps, the trade-off is worth it.
The software updater feature can be a one-stop place to check if the programs installed in the computer needs updating. It also mentions whether the due update is an important update for the software.
The advanced controls are present not only in parental controls as previously mentioned but also throughout the program. This also means that it is not one of those programs, which a user installs and then forgets about. The constant notifications with a call to action buttons require frequent user attention. However, the antivirus itself can take some pretty good automated measures against infected files. This option along with many other advanced features can be toggled from the settings panel.
In recent times, the most dreaded class of virus is the ransomware. To prevent files from becoming inaccessible and having to lose precious documents, it is of paramount importance to use antivirus programs that are capable of detecting viruses like ransomware. Kaspersky does a good job in that too. Any strange activity in the files triggers the antivirus to make a backup of the files and then run security checks on the program that tried to make the modifications to those files.
In addition, with the help of KSN and aggregated data from users around the world, Kaspersky is constantly updating its virus definition system and can detect even the newest malware.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2020 has some great advantages with some minor drawbacks. The antivirus could be more standalone with fewer user interactions needed. While the controls may seem too redundant for many, these are also the reason that makes it one of the top-tiered antivirus program. It is evident that Kaspersky Internet Security is certainly one of the best investments one can make to stay secure online.
