Global cybersecurity company, Kaspersky has announced that it has updated it’s Kaspersky Security Cloud.
According to the company, not only does the Security Cloud give consumers access to technologies, tools and new ways to protect user privacy across multiple devices, it also reduces the risk of users’ privacy being violated by requiring special permission for apps on Android devices. In addition, it notifies users about phishing attempts hidden behind shortened links to websites.
According to Kaspersky’s report – The true value of digital privacy: are consumers selling themselves short? – it’s becoming increasingly common for consumers to protect their digital privacy by checking the settings on their devices and the apps that they use. In fact, more than a third (35 per cent) of consumers regularly follow this practice.
“For modern users, it is not enough to just secure their device,” says Marina Titova, Head of Consumer Product Marketing at Kaspersky. “Cybercriminals are becoming more interested in obtaining personal information about a specific person – whether it is a piece of financial information or their search history.”
“If this sort of information is exposed, it can bring potential harm to its owner making the issue of digital privacy extremely important. In order to provide more control over personal information regardless of which type of device they use, we have updated Kaspersky Security Cloud. We are helping consumers keep their personal data safe and sound across multiple devices.”
As well as updating the Security Cloud, Kaspersky announced that it has also refined the interface and key capabilities within Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Total Security. This update aims to improve performance as well as the overall user experience.
