Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security delivers the ultimate protection for your PCs, identity, passwords, photos and more. Plus, our unique Safe Money technology ensures maximum security for your online financial transactions. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 is also incredibly simple to use, allowing you to easily manage the security of multiple PCs from a single PC.
Core Protection Improved!
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security provides real-time protection against viruses, Trojans, worms, keyloggers, spyware, adware, etc. The two-way personal firewall blocks hacker attacks. The product scans incoming and outgoing web traffic, email and attachments, as well as instant messages for any potential threats.
Hybrid protection against new and unknown threats
With the number of threats growing at an exponential rate, the importance of cloud-based protection is increasing every day. Cloud technologies offer much faster protection against new and unknown threats. Thanks to the latest cloud technologies and proactive protection methods, you can be sure that your computer and the data stored on it are secure. Combining cloud and proactive technologies with traditional signature-based methods provides maximum security for your computer regardless of whether it is constantly connected to the Internet or not.
Detection of suspicious behavior with System Watcher technology
Today's cybercriminals create malware that masquerades as legitimate applications, but can, in fact, seriously damage your computer and personal data. Detecting malicious programs using only traditional antivirus protection methods is no longer enough. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security uses improved System Watcher technology that analyses program behavior and makes use of behavioral templates.
Information about the behavior of programs running on users' computers is fed to Kaspersky Lab, where data is analysed and matched against the reputation of these programs.
If a program does something to suggest it is malicious, its behavioral pattern is added to Kaspersky Lab's antivirus databases. This allows other malicious programs with similar behavior to be blocked.
Rollback of malware actions
Proactive defense technologies track the behavior of programs running on the computer. If a program is malicious, it is very important to be able to roll back actions that it performs. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 can roll back actions executed by a malicious program during the current session as well as earlier sessions.
Depending on the product settings, rollback of malware actions can be done either automatically or with your permission. In addition, you can specify the amount of space (by default, 30 MB) to be set aside for logging malicious program activity on your computer.
Rootkits usually start working before the operating system is launched, modifying its settings and preventing standard defenses from detecting the infection. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 includes dedicated anti-rootkit technology that prevents the operating system boot processes from being hijacked by rootkits.
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security includes protection mechanisms to prevent the insertion of malicious code into the antivirus software itself.
Internet Security Improved!
The Internet has become an integral part of our everyday lives: we work, shop and bank online, chat with friends and play online games. At the same time, the Internet is the main source of malware on users computers. To ensure that you can safely make use of the web's full potential, Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security:
- Scans incoming and outgoing traffic
- Scans websites for malicious code
- Checks the reputation of links
- Detects and blocks phishing links that steal personal data
- Protects against spam
- Blocks harmful scripts
In addition PURE 3.0 Total Security delivers new and improved advanced technologies to provide even greater protection:
- New Safe Money technology
- New Automatic Exploit Prevention
- Improved Anti-Phishing and Anti-Spam
- Enhanced compatibility with browsers
Secured financial operations with Safe Money technology New!
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security includes significantly improved protection of financial operations via online banking and payment systems (e.g. PayPal, WebMoney, etc.) and while shopping online.
How it works:
If an attempt is made to enter an online banking system, bank website or payment system account, Kaspersky PURE 3.0 performs the following activities:
- Verifies that the request is going to the genuine site of the bank or payment system (checked against an updatable list of sites in the product).
- Verifies the security certificate, to avoid redirection to a fake website.
- Scans the operating system for vulnerabilities critical for online banking.
- Suggests opening the website in Safe Money mode to protect your personal data against theft.
If a website is opened in Safe Money mode, Kaspersky PURE 3.0 restricts how other programs and processes can access any data that is transferred. This helps ensure your personal data is protected against theft. When Safe Money mode is activated, a green frame will appear around the browser window.
Automatic Exploit Prevention New!
It is common for malicious programs to exploit vulnerabilities in popular applications such as Adobe Reader, Internet Explorer, and Firefox to try to gain control over the computer, steal personal data, etc. PURE 3.0 includes a new technology, Automatic Exploit Prevention, that prevents and blocks such exploits. Features include:
- Control over the launch of executable files (including web browsers) whenever vulnerabilities are found, or when they originate from applications which are not intended for the launch of executable files (Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, etc.).
- If executable files are launched, their activities are checked for any signs of exploit behavior.
- Control over any activities performed by an application where a vulnerability is detected (i.e. following the link, recording other processes to the memory, etc.).
Virtual Keyboard Improved!
The Virtual Keyboard is an onscreen keyboard that you use with a mouse. It ensures logins, passwords, bank card details and other confidential data can be safely entered into web pages without the use of a standard keyboard. This prevents data from being intercepted by malicious programs that can take screenshots or record keystrokes made on a physical keyboard.
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security now provides fast access to the Virtual Keyboard from web browsers. When banking or payment sites are opened, the Virtual Keyboard's quick launch element is automatically activated in the input field.
Secure Keyboard mode Improved!
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security includes a feature for additional protection of personal data, even when you are using a physical keyboard. If you open a bank or payment website or insert a password on any web page, Secure Keyboard mode activates automatically. The product settings allow you to select other categories of sites where the Secure Keyboard protection mode should be activated.
Browser compatibility Improved!
A variety of features and modules of Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security (URL Advisor, Anti-Banner, Virtual Keyboard, Safe Money, etc.) support recent versions of the following web browsers:
- Internet Explorer 8,9, 10
- Mozilla Firefox 9.x-12.x
- Google Chrome15.x-17.x
- Opera 12.61
In these browser versions the product installs the appropriate plugins for a fast call-out of Kaspersky PURE 3.0 features.
Anti-phishing protection Improved!
To receive access to your personal information, cybercriminals often resort to fake (phishing) sites. To make protection against visiting phishing websites much more effective, Kaspersky PURE 3.0 integrates an enhanced updatable anti-phishing module. In particular, heuristic analysis has been improved, which checks to see if a URL has the typical characteristics of a phishing website.
URL Advisor Improved!
Built into browser toolbars, URL Advisor flags links to infected or fraudulent (phishing) resources using a special color indicator within search engine results. To receive more detailed information about a specific website, place the cursor over the coloured indicator.
File Advisor Improved!
You can check whether an application you have downloaded from the Internet is going to harm your computer by simply right-clicking the file icon and selecting the context menu option: Check reputation in KSN (Kaspersky Security Network). You will receive detailed information about the file, including the level of trust assigned by other users.
Protection from annoying and dangerous spam Improved!
Most Internet users have encountered irritating or dangerous spam at some point. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security incorporates a new and improved Anti-Spam module enabling even more reliable filtering of unwanted messages. In addition, reports on detected spam messages have been greatly enhanced.
The Anti-Banner module blocks pop-up windows, so you don't have to waste time closing them.
Centralised management to secure multiple PCs at home
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security has a centralised security management function for home network computers. You can launch scanning tasks, updates, data backup, etc. for the whole network from your PC. Also, the security of all network computers can be monitored in the product window from a single machine. If a problem arises, it can be dealt with from any computer.
Single update server on your network
You can reduce the Internet traffic needed to download Kaspersky PURE 3.0 updates by assigning the role of update server to one computer in your home network. This machine downloads updates from Kaspersky Lab's servers and the other computers on your network download the material from there.
Monitoring your child from your computer
If you have a home network, you can monitor your child's day-to-day activities and manage safety policies using Home Network Control from any Kaspersky PURE 3.0 protected computer on your home network.
All options from Parental Control are available to you from your computer in the Home Network Control module. You can get statistical reports on your children's computer and Internet activity, and set your own limits on their computer use.
Remote licence management
Home Network Control allows you to manage product licencing (activation and licence renewal) for all home network computers (computers need to be connected to the Internet).
Remote backup and restore
You can back up and restore all your important files from any PC on your home network.
Wi-Fi network security
Home Network Control will scan your Wi-Fi network and give advice on improving the network's security if needed.

Parental Control offers control over your children's online communications, blocking correspondence with unwanted contacts via instant messengers and social networks.
Parental Control allows you to:
- Set a time limit on your children's use of the computer and Internet
- Control the use of applications and sites visited
- View detailed reports about your children's computer activities
Monitoring your child from your computer
If you have a home network, you can manage safety policies and monitor your children's day-to-day activities using Home Network Control from any Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security protected computer on your home network.
All options from Kaspersky PURE 3.0's Parental Control module are available to you from your computer in Home Network Control. You can get a statistical report on your children's activity on the computer and the Internet and set your own limits on their computers.
Popular search engines such as Google have a special Safe Search mode that blocks pages with inappropriate content. The Safe Search option in Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security will ensure that this capability is always engaged.
Protection against sites with undesirable content
The Parental Control module in Kaspersky PURE 3.0 can block a child's access to sites with undesirable content (pornography, violence, etc.). You can also block specific sites by adding them to a blacklist.
File download control by file type
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security can block the download of specific file types. This helps you prevent your family members from breaking copyright laws by illegally downloading content from websites.
Control over social networking and instant messaging communications
Social networks and instant messengers pose a serious threat to the integrity of your personal data and the safety of your children. Parental Control allows you to:
- Monitor who your children communicate with
- Restrict communication with undesirable contacts
- Receive reports when specified words and phrases are used in correspondence
- Block access to social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook or instant messengers
You can prevent your children from sending personal information, such as phone numbers, addresses or banking details, over the web. You simply indicate what information should be protected and it will be blocked if your children attempt to post it on websites or enter it into instant messages.
In the new version the interface of the Parental Control module has been enhanced to make it more user-friendly. Configuring profiles has become much easier: now you merely have to select the level of control that corresponds to the age of your children or according to your specific needs (e.g. reports about a child's computer activity). You can either use the preset recommended settings in profiles ('Child', 'Teenager') or customise your own settings.
The Password Manager module in Kaspersky PURE 3.0 allows you to create strong passwords that are securely stored and easy to manage. The password database can be accessed using a master password, a USB or Bluetooth device, or a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone. Password Manager supports several accounts, meaning each individual PC user can have their own password database.
Password Sync New!
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 now stores your passwords in the cloud (i.e. online), so you can synchronise them across all of your Windows machines. So, now, from any of your PCs, you can access your Password Manager, and you'll automatically be logged into websites and applications.
Simply choose the option Enable Sync during Password Manager setup.
Note that to use the online password database, you'll need to create a Kaspersky account. You will be prompted to register when you choose the Enable Sync option.
Kaspersky PURE allows you to safely store not only logins and passwords but also personal notes containing confidential information such as PIN codes for SIM cards, software activation codes, passport details, etc. Safe Notes can be set up using standard data templates (e.g. 'Bank cards', 'Internet settings' etc.).
Secure account transfer
If for any reason you need to pass on your login details for a particular resource, Kaspersky PURE allows you to transfer accounts in an encrypted format. After a specified period of time the product will remind you that the account was transferred to another user and that it should be changed to ensure the required level of security.
Strong, unique passwords for better security
The best security practice is to have a unique password for each and every site or application. Kaspersky PURE 3.0 can generate secure, random passwords to provide better security. It also automatically enters them into your account logins.
Import passwords from other applications
Many web browsers do not store passwords securely, making it easy for cybercriminals to get access to them. If your email account or web account (e.g. for a social network) is hacked, for example, a criminal can use it to access confidential data or to send spam from your name. Password Manager helps you locate unprotected passwords in browsers and transfers them to its own encrypted database.
Password Manager for Windows apps
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security can not only manage passwords for websites but also for popular Windows applications. A Password Manager button is conveniently embedded at the top of the application window and can be used to manage passwords directly from the application.
Completes lengthy forms
Once you complete an 'Identity card' in Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security, it will remember your answers and complete lengthy forms for you.
Automatic password backup
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security automatically backs up your passwords every time you make changes to any of your accounts.
Secure vaults for valuable information
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 offers the opportunity to create a special secure vault to store valuable information. The information stored in the vault is encrypted and the vault is protected by an individual password which makes it inaccessible to hackers and criminals. Within the product, the vault is displayed as a removable disk. You can also safely transfer your confidential data from one computer to the other (Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security must be installed on both machines). To do this, the data can be placed in a protected vault and sent by email or saved to a USB.
If you don't want to create a vault for your files by yourself, you can use the preset 100 MB vault as required.
Creation of multiple vaults
You can create as many secure vaults as you need, so every user can have a secure place for his or her sensitive data. Each vault can be protected by an individual password.
Sometimes your computer may crash. To ensure the safety of valuable information, you can easily configure your system for regular backups. Then a few simple mouse clicks can restore the system when necessary. You can use the hard drive, any removable media, an FTP server or any other network storage to store backup copies.
Online Backup New!
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security now integrates an online backup functionality, allowing you to back up files online via Dropbox a service trusted by over 100 million users. Free storage is based on the standard Dropbox conditions up to 2 GB free of charge. The advantages of online backup storage are:

Flexible file restore
You can restore all of your backup files or select the individual files you need.
File restore on any computer

High level of PC security
Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security scans the operating system and your installed applications for vulnerabilities, restores the operating system after an infection and offers the best web browser settings to increase your computer's security.
