Kaspersky Internet Suite 7.0 - Best Protection Offered

Being secure is like chasing mercury. Have you ever chased mercury? I once did when a thermometer broke -- its crazy! No matter what your efforts, it keeps running away, refusing to be caught. The harder you try, the faster it runs. Security is much like that -- it's a cat and mouse game. (Trivia: Mercury is the only metal that is liquid at ordinary temperatures. Reminds you of T1000 from Terminator 2, doesn't it?) Still, we can't afford to lose hope: security is one thing all computer users must have. And I'm not talking about just an anti-virus solution of the good old days. Viruses are no longer just viruses; virus writers have evolved and don't want to dominate the world anymore -- just snoop information off our PCs for a profit. There are now adware, malware, spyware... whatever the name, they're all bad. And don't forget social engineering attacks, technically called phishing scams, particularly from friendly neighbourhood Nigeria. These are the hardest problems to solve, because they're more about human psychology than technology. All said, we need robust security... or shall I say "more and more security." Kaspersky Internet Suite 7.0 is quite the answer to what we need; let's call it KIS7 -- it sounds more exotic! What comes in the bundle? The suite comes with an anti-virus (formerly known as AntiViral Toolkit Pro), a firewall that checks inbound as well as outbound traffic, anti-spyware / malware protection, anti-spam, anti-phishing, anti-rootkit (this suite means business!) and parental control (kids beware!) That's a lot of protection bundled in, all for about Rs 2,400, {Rs.500(in chennai)}
