Kaspersky PURE s Management Console saves you the headache by providing a means to manage all of the Kaspersky PURE-protected PC s on the network from your own machine, whether you just want a quick peek to see the security status of the overall network or whether you have something more complex in mind. PASSWORD MANAGER: ONLINE TRANSACTION SECURITY There are a lot of bad guys out there who would love to be privy to your online banking credentials. But stealing the login details from your PC is not the only way to achieve their goal. It is fair to say that today s Internet user will access many different Internet resources that require authorization, and human nature being what it is, many of those users will use the same or similar passwords for all those websites that they access. Some websites are better protected than others and it is sometimes easy to hack a website and steal access passwords that would allow the hacker to falsely enter other sites. Kaspersky PURE s Password Manager helps to avoid this it suggests robust passwords and stores them for you, meaning that you don t need to remember each and every one. Now you can have one password for each Internet service losing a single password is therefore much less traumatic. As a bonus, Password Manager remembers your personal Information and will help you by automatically filling in long, online forms with just a few clicks. The great thing about Password Manager is that you can take it everywhere you go on a USB flash. 5 Kaspersky PURE Reviewer s Guide Kaspersky PURE will put your passwords in an encrypted database along with tiny application on the flash, so the only thing you need to do is just plug the USB flash into a computer, run application and it will fill all the passwords and forms for you. You will also be able to carry your secure memos with you. DATA ENCRYPTION: SENSITIVE DATA PROTECTION Kaspersky PURE securely protects your personal data against theft and unauthorized access using cutting-edge encryption technology and allows deleted files to be permanently erased from your computer. Encrypted data is stored in password-protected digital containers that only you can access. This way, Kaspersky PURE safeguards your private life from unwelcomed attention. HOME NETWORK SECURITY With Kaspersky PURE there is no need to be a network security expert to have a safe Wi-Fi-enabled home network. Kaspersky PURE will perform a scan of your Wi-Fi network and will suggest step-bystep instructions regarding how to fix any security flaws that it may find. PC SECURITY TUNE-UP AND OPTIMIZATION Kaspersky PURE can fine-tune those hidden and lesser-known OS and browser settings that can leave your network exposed. Examples of such vulnerabilities can include auto run for removable media being enabled, allowing the media to be used to surreptitiously run malware. Additionally, the browser cache may contain information about websites that the user has visited that may be of great interest to hackers. SIMPLICITY AND EASE OF USE Regardless of the user s level of expertise, Kaspersky Lab aims to make powerful products that are easy to use. Harnessing some of the latest and most innovative techniques, Kaspersky Lab products minimize the user s need to interact with the application.

The only mandatory component is Computer Protection. ACTIVATION / CONFIGURATION You will be prompted to activate Kaspersky PURE in the process of installation. If you choose to skip this, you can later activate Kaspersky PURE through the License link at the bottom left-hand side of the main window. You will be asked to either purchase a commercial license, or to enter an activation code. A FEW WORDS ABOUT PASSWORDS As a last step of installation, Kaspersky PURE suggests that you protect application settings from changing by a password. Kaspersky PURE provides multi-level information protection and ensures information is safe at different stages of the information lifecycle usage, storage, deletion. This necessitates the use of different passwords for the use of certain features: CONFIGURATION PASSWORD protects Kaspersky PURE s own settings. Only a person that knows this password may alter Kaspersky PURE s internal settings (The exact list of features protected by this password is specified in the Settings dialogue when the password is set). The administrator must also use this password when launching Kaspersky PURE s Home Network Control to be able to manage security across the whole network from a single machine. MASTER PASSWORD FOR PASSWORD MANAGER. With this password you authorize the Password Manager to detect and automatically complete login fields and web forms. PASSWORDS FOR YOUR BACKUP SETS. You may specify a unique password for each backup task, or use the same password for any group, or all of them. PASSWORDS FOR ENCRYPTED CONTAINERS. As with backup sets, you may use a unique, or the same password for each container. 8 Kaspersky PURE Reviewer s Guide If you skip setting the configuration password during the installation, you may always click Settings in the main window, and then tick the Enable Password Protection check box: The master-password for Password Manager is set when you first setup Password Manager. The passwords for Backup and encrypted containers are set when backup tasks and containers are created. Kaspersky Lab recommends: 1. Right after installation Kaspersky PURE will inform you that the databases are obsolete. Allow Kaspersky PURE to update the databases to be able to detect the latest threats. 2. Run a full scan of your entire hard drive and any other attached storage devices. (The length of the initial scan will depend on the speed of the CPU and the number of files on the PC. During subsequent scan requests, Kaspersky PURE will determine if changes have occurred to the applications and files, significantly decreasing scan times) 3. Do an initial system backup and schedule periodic backups 4. Agree a family PC and Internet usage policy with those affected. Set up Parental Control according to the agreed parameters. 9 Kaspersky PURE Reviewer s Guide KASPERSKY PURE - MAIN WINDOW The main window provides quick snapshot of home security and allows quick access to the most frequently used features.
