No sooner has Microsoft released its Beta version of Windows 7 than Kaspersky Lab has an anti-virus prototype out in the market.
The prototype is based on the new antivirus engine which provides complex antivirus protection from all types of Internet threats.
“We knew the release of the new version of Windows would be a huge event for the IT community, which is why we were prepared for it,” said Alexey Kalgin, Director Product Marketing, Corporate Business Division, Kaspersky Lab.
Kaspersky Lab’s technical preview is a comprehensive solution, including not only an antivirus pattern-recognition component but also a heuristic analyzer which can detect and block as-yet-unknown malicious programs based on their suspicious characteristics, a firewall and an anti-spam filter. The prototype is intended to provide effective protection from all types of Internet threats – viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, hacker attacks and spam.
At the heart of the new technical prototype is Kaspersky Lab’s new antivirus engine which is even more effective at detecting malicious programs than its predecessor. The new engine increases system scanning speed due to improved processing of objects and optimized use of system resources, particularly on dual- and quad-core processor platforms. The unique product architecture ensures high productivity and one of the lowest uses of system resources in the industry. The prototype is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the operating system.
