Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security vs 2.0 Review

by Paul Jordan SEO

The Evolution of Kaspersky Total Security

The Kaspersky PURE Total Security line of security suites is one of the higher end suites available to consumers, offering a plethora of features including anti-phishing, anti-spam, and antivirus defenses. On top of these features, it hosts several unique layers of security involving encrypted storage options, password management programs, backup and system tune-up functions, file shredding capabilities, and more. Kaspersky PURE 2.0 released at a hefty price tag of $89.95, and latest version does little to diminish the pricy bottom line as it continues to pack on advanced features to justify the cost.

What the New Version Offers

Kaspersky PURE 3.0 boasts a variety of new features, including functions designed to protect the security of your keyboard from the emerging threat of keyloggers who track the strokes of the board, an extended backup functionality allowing users to store their data through online services like Dropbox, and security protocols aimed at online financial exchange hosts like PayPal and WebMoney to provide users with extra protection when shopping online. Like other security suites, Kaspersky is poised to upgrade its PURE Total Security line with each subsequent year in order to combat new threats and fix old errors.

What's The Catch?

With each subsequent update and upgrade, however, comes the danger of fixing what isn't broken and damaging the stability of the suite in the process. Although Kaspersky PURE 3.0 doesn't suffer from structural problems related to its increased capacity of security features, the problems of the 2.0 version are sometimes exacerbated by the added weight. The installation and booting difficulties which plagued many user experiences with 2.0 are just as prevalent with 3.0, with boot times running even longer due to the features and functionality of this beefed up and bulked out successor.

The Measures That Matter

Some user complaints about Kaspersky PURE 2.0 Total Security have been answered in the latest version. 2.0 failed to provide adequate online backup options, which 3.0 not only implements, but interfaces with popular apps like Dropbox. The amount of spam and phishing the PURE Total Security suite is capable of catching has also improved, as the 3.0 release casts a wider net of preventative and automated alert solutions designed to block problems from your computer before they infect the systems.

Fighting for Your Safety

The majority of the new features found in the 3.0 release are innovations. An 'Automatic Exploit Prevention' function extends Kaspersky's protection into popular apps, including internet browsers and Adobe programs, which are often exploited but rarely covered by security suites. A new password synchronization feature allows users to access administrative password management options from any personal computer.

Making The New Version Worth It

3.0 has also optimized the efficiency of its security programming in order to diminish the impact it has on a computer's speed and response time. This has been a common complaint with users who found that an increase in the components of a security suite often translated to a decrease in the functionality of the computer due to it being weighed down by them. Just like 2.0, the 3.0 release offers a free trial to accommodate new users and convince old ones that the re-investment is worthwhile. Routine version updates have become popular business models for security companies in order to keep their protocols up to date against the latest threats to computer security, but less can be more depending on how excessive version updates become.
