AOL Gives Free Kaspersky Anti-Virus To All Online Users

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 1:59 pm

AOL today launched a new free anti-virus program — called Active Virus Shield — for all online users at no cost. Active Virus Shield is powered by Kaspersky Lab, one of the largest Internet security solutions providers in the world, and offers advanced detection technology to stop viruses, spyware, malware and Trojans before they attack, as well as real-time scanning of files and email. The software automatically updates every hour, offering an easy and convenient way for consumers to protect themselves from the thousands of new Internet threats created each month.

AOL will also allow IE users to install a free security toolbar when they download Active Virus Shield. The toolbar will include a real-time update on their computer’s security status via Active Security Monitor, a password manager, pop-up blocker, and a link to the Whois domain registration database to find more information on potentially suspicious sites.

In addition to Active Security Monitor and Active Virus Shield, AOL’s other security offerings include the AOL Safety and Security Center, a comprehensive security suite available for free to all online users, and AOL Total Care, a premium package of security and computing tools (currently in beta testing).
