The release of Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010 has been announced.


The consumer products incorporate the advantages of an advanced host-based intrusion prevention system technology in the application control module that assigns a security rating to previously unknown malware.


It also features a unique sandbox technology to provide a dedicated secure runtime environment. It was developed for use with Windows Vista in mind and is available from July.


According to Kaspersky, a safe run feature enables the user to run new software in an isolated environment that protects the operating system from all malicious changes. It also and allows web surfing to be done safely as a green border is added to demonstrate protection to the user.


The Kaspersky Security Network has also been improved. When a program is run it checks the program against a whitelist and the urgent detection system list on Kaspersky Lab's servers. A program is then assigned a security rating.


Kaspersky Lab CEO Eugene Kaspersky, said: “It's not only the very latest innovative technologies such as the ‘sandbox' and the Safe Run option that set the new versions of our personal products apart but also the highly intuitive and user-friendly interface.


“Now, configuring a computer security system poses no problems for novice users, while professionals have a lot more functions at their disposal that are more clearly and logically structured. Our aim is that all types of computer users enjoy a safer place on the internet.”
