Kaspersky Lab has released new versions of security applications including the Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 and Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 for home users.
The new applications include enhancements to the current protection technologies to offer enhanced security for users' PCs and their digital devices.
Both the new products are claimed to feature the company's ZETA Shield antivirus technology, which is claimed to perform scan of files and applications running on the computer to identify malware that is expected to hide within individual components of each programme.
Kaspersky Lab chief technology officer Nikolay Grebennikov said the technologies found in new applications are designed to protect the financial data and personal information of the customers.
"Kaspersky Lab's experts have worked tirelessly to develop proactive technologies like ZETA Shield and Automatic Exploit Prevention to prevent the most sophisticated and money-threatening cyberattacks users can encounter, and with innovations like Trusted Applications Mode, we're making it easy for users to remain protected online," Grebennikov said.
The products also include the new Anti-Blocker technology, which offers security from the Trojan called ransomware that can block access to computers and demand payments to unblock victims' machines.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 comes with the new Trusted Applications mode, which protects the computer by enabling it to launch the applications that are identified as safe to use.
According to the company, the Trusted Applications feature is based on the White-listing database of legitimate applications, which consists over 700 million entries with descriptions of all popular applications.
Additionally, the company has equipped the applications with the new Automatic Exploit Prevention technology, which scans programmes for exploits that infects the PC through vulnerabilities in genuine software.
The company said that the Automatic Exploit Prevention monitors programs that are most frequently targeted by cybercriminals like Java and Adobe Reader to block cybercriminals from using unknown gaps in legitimate software to penetrate a computer's defences.
