Kaspersky launches adaptive security product through cloud

By

Security firm Kaspersky Lab has launched a new product called Kaspersky Security Cloud which operates as a service and is not attached to a device, but to an owner through an account on the My Kaspersky portal.

A statement from the company said the product would be available as a monthly and annual subscription. It would adapt to offer protection depending on the behaviour of the user and the device being used.

The product reacts based on the situation the user is in, the statement said.

It outlined one such possible scenario: "Imagine that you need to urgently send a confidential document, so you stop for a coffee in the nearest café and connect to the free Wi-Fi. However, this Wi-Fi turns out to be dangerous. Specifically, cyber criminals can intercept all the data transmitted over it!

"Kaspersky Security Cloud reports this risk and, depending on the settings, automatically turns on the VPN, which securely encrypts all transmitted data."

Numerous other scenarios are also present in the product as seen in the graphic below.

Adaptive security in action

"While developing Kaspersky Security Cloud, we were guided by the desire to create a service that could provide the right protection at the right time, said Dmitry Aleshin, vice-president for Product Marketing, Kaspersky Lab.

"People’s digital lives of today are much more than just a device connected to the Internet, they are a whole world that is no less important than the physical one. And each person has their own domain, which means each person needs special
protection that suits their unique digital lifestyle.

"We believe that the future lies with security solutions that will adapt to the individual, to each member of their family, to their environment and behaviour. Kaspersky Security Cloud is our first step towards this future."

The Kaspersky Security Cloud is available in three versions. The Free version has a limited number of scenarios, it only applies to one account and three devices at a time. The Personal version provides full service functionality for one account and five devices. The Family version covers 20 accounts and 20 devices.

Those who need to pay monthly, can only take mobile subscriptions at the moment.
