Kaspersky PURE 2.0 Total Security debuts portable password database

Kaspersky LAB has released a new version of its flagship do-it-all security suite, Kaspersky PURE 2.0 Total Security.

Kaspersky LAB has released a new version of its flagship do-it-all security suite, Kaspersky PURE 2.0 Total Security.

And although the upgrade is relatively minor – which is no surprise, really; the previous version did so much that there isn’t much left to add – the company has made a few useful tweaks which should appeal to fans of the package.

These start with the Password Manager, which now includes a Portable Version option. This can synchronise your password database with a removable drive, creating a portable database which you can use on other PCs, even if they don’t have Kaspersky PURE installed.

If you use the program’s Home Network Control system to manage your networked PCs then the good news is you don’t have to rely on it automatically detecting remote computers any more. Just click “+ Add computer manually” and specify the computer name or IP address you need.

Elsewhere, the Parental Controls now do a better job of controlling who your kids can contact (or be contacted by) on social networking sites. Backup speeds are reportedly faster (though we’ve not yet benchmarked this ourselves). And there’s the obligatory interface revamp, which aims to simplify operations and provide a little more feedback on your PC’s security status.

And of course there’s still all the features and functionality from the previous editions, including strong real-time and on-demand antivirus protection; a straightforward backup tool; a firewall, spam filter, phishing protection, sandbox, virtual keyboard, data shredder, encryption module, PC cleanup tool, and the list goes on.

As updates go, then, the additions seem fairly small. If you already use Kaspersky PURE or are looking for a comprehensive security solution then the new release should appeal, though, and if you’d like to find out for yourself then 30-day trial builds of Kaspersky PURE 2.0 Total Security are available.
