Kaspersky free antivirus software went to India in September
Kaspersky has begun rolling out a free version of its anti-virus software worldwide. The software will provide an ad-free antivirus solution for protection across files, email, browsing and more.
After a year of testing, Kaspersky Lab has finally launched a free version of its anti-virus software worldwide. Known as Kaspersky Free, the software is being rolled out in stages and should be available in India by the end of September. The company notes that the free version will not compete with its paid versions because those versions offer a bunch of additional features like parental control, online payment protection and security. However, the free version will offer basic security features such as files, email and web antivirus, automatic updates, self-defense, quarantine and much more. The company further notes that based on the same technology as the Kaspersky Free Paid versions, the software is lighter and faster than them.
Eugene Kaspersky, the company’s founder, said in a blog post: “Last year the product was successfully launched in the Russia-Ukraine-Belarus region, China and the Nordic countries (Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland, if you were wondering). I say successfully … – It would be an understatement; Kaspersky Free was installed millions of times for virtually zero promo activity, which increased our market share considerably. It is not that our goal is to increase market share; Our goal is to increase the overall level of security on the Internet. Anyway, thanks to all the Kaspersky Free users here for helping us save the world! ”
The Kaspersky Free Launch should come as welcome news for anyone looking for a free antivirus service from a reputable company. We’ve already seen two major attacks worldwide in the form of WannaCry and Petya, and this new software will help people sleep a little more peacefully at night.
