Kaspersky Free officially gives users fantastic antivirus protection at no cost

Kaspersky concerns

The company began testing the product in select regions a year and a half ago, releasing trial versions in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, China and the Nordic countries.

Kaspersky has announced the global launch of its free net security software Kaspersky Free, that lets users deploy the software for free. The free version also offers cloud protection.

The free service is called Kaspersky Free, and it includes anti-virus scanning and protection for your files, emails, and web usage, as well as automatic updates, and a quarantine service to safely contain malicious computer bugs. In response to the allegations Eugene Kaspersky said he was ready to reveal the source code for the company's software to the United States government.

The launch of Kaspersky Free coincides with the company's 20th birthday. "The first wave will be the U.S., Canada, and numerous Asia Pacific countries", Kaspersky wrote, adding that coverage would be global by the end of November.

A number of other security vendors offer free AV software to users to boost their real time data collection capabilities, protecting both free and premium users from a wider variety of threats and mitigating ever more complex cyberattacks.

Van Dijk made 21 Premier league appearances for Southampton last season, as well as featuring six times in the Europa League. If you are not 100% with the team I need to work with the players who are 1,000% to defend Southampton .

"There are many users who don't have around $50 to spend on premium protection; therefore, they install traditional freebies (which have more holes than Swiss cheese for malware to slip through) or they even rely on Windows Defender (ye gods!)", CEO Eugene Kaspersky wrote.

The software will be available in India from September. October: Europe, Japan and South Korea.

Kaspersky Free is available worldwide.

However, Kaspersky Free is not as full-featured as the full-scale version. This means that, though it features just the bare basics, it still packs a punch - a punch we're no less proud of. According to the CEO, "Kaspersky Free doesn't come out with all the usual nonsense like advertising-oriented user-habit tracking and confidentiality infringements".
