Kaspersky Antivirus Review
Kaspersky is the cream of the crop when it comes to malware detection, but here’s a closer look at its full offerings to determine if it’s the right antivirus software for you.
What We Like
- Best performing virus scans on the market
- Greater level of control over the timing and details of scans
- Affordable pricing
What We Don't Like
- Risk of data exposure to foreign governments
- Contracts start at a year long
Bottom LineAntivirus prices change all the time, but one thing remains constant about Kaspersky: It's always good at detecting malware. It detected all five malware we hid in our computers, and independent antivirus tests also show Kaspersky's excellence in isolating and detecting even the newest types of malware.
