Last week we see Kaspersky Lab launching their Kaspersky Internet Security 2017 flagship into the market. If you have not already known, Kaspersky Lab is one of the worlds best known cyber security software developer. Their award-winning programs have protected their customer’s computers against various virus types and hacks since 1997.
This new flagship product from Kaspersky Lab of course is their latest product to replace last year’s Kaspersky Internet Security. The 2017 Internet Security program from Kaspersky is designed to give you a complete protection for all your devices. The multi device solution can protect up to 5 devices using one license key.
Why do you need this new product, you ask? Simple, your privacy and data protection. There are more and more cyber attacks that is being reported worldwide daily. Even worse is that these cyber attacks evolve after every attack. New threats come up everyday too according to Kaspersky Lab, which means that you are more and more vulnerable each day you do not have a cyber security program.
What is even more interesting is that Malaysians are some of the most at risk users. Blame it to the lack of the local cyber-savvy citizens for this high risk number. This number through Kaspersky Lab’s Digital Literacy Survey also reveals that Malaysia has one of the highest smartphone penetration rates in the world. Yet, users are always connecting their devices to unsecured Wi-Fi channels and such putting themselves at a greater risk of being cyber attacked. Which is why Kaspersky feels that the need for a multi-device program is a much-needed product in Malaysia.
With Kaspersky’s Internet Security, users have up to 200MB of encrypted traffic at their daily disposal. For additional fees though they can get unlimited encrypted data. Kaspersky’s program also updates regularly either manually or automatically at the discretion of the user. The updates are much-needed to handle new threats in the cyber world. The Internet Security 2017 Multi Device will also regularly clean your devices off unused and risky software in your device.
Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Anti-Virus are available at all IT leading stores nationwide. Prices for Internet Security start from MYR100 for a single device license for a year and all the way to MYR249f or 5 devices for a year. For Anti-Virus, Kaspersky is offering a single device license for MYR39.90 for a year. For 5 devices, one year license you can get your hands on the Anti-Virus for MYR199. There will be some promotions and lucky-draws that will come in the coming weeks from Kaspersky, so do keep a look-out. Photos and Press Release after the break.

PETALING JAYA – 11 October 2016
Kaspersky Lab presented the latest version of its flagship security solution Kaspersky Internet Security 2017. The solution gives users additional opportunities to manage their Internet protection and to ensure their data safety.
Kaspersky Internet Security Multi Device is the security solution for the whole family; it protects Windows, Mac, and Android users against malware, dangerous sites, online tracking, fraud and money theft.

In addition, they can patch potential “holes” in their device security with Software Updater and Software Cleaner.
The need for a top-notch multi-device security solution has never been greater in Malaysia as a growing number of users employ devices other than thetraditional desktops and laptops to access digital content. This includes smartphones and tablets
There is a need for Kaspersky Internet Solution 2017 in Malaysia as the recent Kaspersky Lab’s Digital Literacy Survey revealed that Malaysians were among the worst performers when it comes to cyber-savviness, coming in close to the bottom. In addition, Malaysia has one of the highest penetration rates of smartphone usage in the world, further compounding the threat.
The lack of cyber-savviness among Malaysians coupled with their high usage of unprotected non-PC/non-desktop devices is cause for concern in view of the growth of cyber threats globally. In the second quarter of 2016 alone, Kaspersky Lab solutions detected and repelled over 171 million malicious attacks from online resources, globally.
According to Sylvia Ng, General Manager – SEA, Kaspersky Lab, the company expects the consumer reaction to the latest products to be positively strong with the addition of more cutting edge features and the emphasis on providing even better security and value across all device platforms to consumers.

We are striving to offer the user these possibilities with each new version of our solutions”, commented Sylvia.
