Kaspersky Lab’s protection solution aimed at home users, Kaspersky Internet Security 2014, steered the way for the number of blocked cyber threats.

This test conducted by AV-Comparatives demonstrates how effectively our solution detects malicious files before they have a chance to run, thus ensuring the highest possible levels of protection for our customers” alleged Oleg Ishanov, Director of Anti-Malware Research at Kaspersky Lab.
