Kaspersky Pure Total Security software is the newest internet safety offering from the folks over at Kaspersky Labs I’ve used the products these brilliant folks put out for years and am delighted to tell you that this software has all the bases covered when it comes to keeping your home network safe.
AWARD WINNING COMPUTER AND INTERNET SECURITY: protects the entire household’s computers against all known malware, viruses, Trojans, root kits, worms, malicious website scripts, phishing attacks and key logger programs sniffing for your passwords.

Awesome Parental Control features

- Limit Computer or Internet use- even when you’re at work PURE is standing guard making sure your kids aren’t distracted from homework or other important activities
- Monitor their time online via full Internet History Reports
- Control their use of IM’S or Social Networking Sites – Block inappropriate contacts in instant messaging services, control your child’s use of Facebook, Twitter and MySpace
Online Transaction Security
- store your valuable files in password-protected encrypted vaults that only you can access
- Password Manager-provides online Transaction Security, suggests and stores strong passwords for you, no need to remember multiple passwords.
- Password manager can also remember your personal info, safely, securely filling out long online forms with a couple clicks of your mouse.
- Take your passwords wherever you – PURE will put passwords in an encrypted database along with tiny application on your USB flash device. Just plug it into any computer, run the application and you’ve got the ability to fill out forms and passwords.
- On-screen Virtual Keyboard -protects your passwords against key logger programs
PURE Home Network Management
- Management Console -manage all the Kaspersky PURE-protected PC‟s on your home network from your own computer –no more dashing from computer to computer every week!
- Home Wi-FI Network Security- PURE will scan your home LAN walking you you thru step by step instructions to fix any security issues that are present.
- Strong firewall-protects your network against hacker attacks
- PC clean-up tools-to keep your computers running smoothly
The Setup and Configuration Wizards will have you up and running in a snap (you will need to remove existing anti-virus/security software) Kaspersky provides removal tools and instructions to make this easy.
PURE standardizes home network security-everybody’s system is running the same software and the tech savvy person is in charge. No more situations where somebody skips virus scans or updates or turns the software off to play a computer game endangering the entire network
I love the easy to configure Parental Controls-PURE is there when they get home from school and you’re at work, cooking dinner or running errands- enforcing your rules regarding your child’s computer/internet/social media access
IMHO the online security features alone make PURE worth it’s price. I’ve paid $30 per copy for a supposedly secure form filler that doesn’t offer anywhere near the security of Password Manager, Virtual Keyboard and auto form filler.
Kaspersky PURE retails for $89.95 for a 1-year license, and can be installed on up to 3 computers. You can their Facebook pagehere. You might also want to check out
