Cool Features:

Kaspersky provides some creative solutions! The Secure Connection technology assists in protecting data when you connect to public networks such as internet cafes. Secure Connection makes sure all sent & received data is encrypted & protected from theft or tracking. I do not know of any other antivirus that does this. The Kaspersky Installation Assistant will support you during the installation process of new programs from the internet. It will ensure that you install nothing extra besides the programs you have selected. The Safe Surf technology warns you about potentially malicious websites. URL Advisor uses cloud-based data to determine the reputation of websites. URL Advisor will display a color-coded icon to show you whether a link is trusted, suspicious or dangerous. File Shredder totally destroys unwanted files.

Cool Features:

Ad-Aware's malware sandbox emulator intelligently analyzes possible threats by monitoring a potential threat in a virtual environment before it ends up on your computer. This prevents malware from ever actually doing damage on your computer. This process is done in the background. It does not require any user intervention. The Safe Browsing engine persistently checks newly browsed websites against a freshly updated list of known virus infected sites. The official Ad-Aware malware list is updated every 5-20 minutes. Ad-Aware Safe Browsing keeps you safe while you browse the web. Every new URL you visit is checked against a known blacklist of malicious sites. If you click on a dangerous link on accident then Ad-Aware Safe Browsing will immediately warn you.

Business / Endpoint Info:

Kaspersky offers a Small Office solution for less than 45 employees. Anything larger than 45+ employees will require their Endpoint Security solution. Let's talk about the Small Office solution first. This is designed to work out-of-the-box without much IT skills required. This does not mean that the product lacks the punch. Powerful security tools are included to connect any device you choose. Administrate the software from a single admin web page which will display the security status of all your devices. Activate Small Office on any device and have easy access to the Technical Support. Features include anti-phishing, anti-spam, anti-ransomware, backup and encryption. Secure email and web activity against hidden exploits and a malware. Possibly one of the coolest features of Small Office is the anti-cryptor. If you have ever heard of a crypto-locker the anti-cryptor defends against this kind of attack which can lock you out of your own files on the network and demand a ransom to unlock them. Protect Windows PCs, laptops, servers, Mac computers and Android mobile devices.
