Kaspersky Security for Ultra Portables
When the PC market was taken by the ultraportable nettops like a storm, one obvious problem that haunted me was the absence of a proper antivirus and internet security that can match the system specifications and yet give the protection that we all look for while we are on the internet.
The basic aspect of the nettops is that they are systems built with minimal features and cannot support any high end and system space consuming applications. So, my question was: “is there something kind of antivirus and internet security that can play well in those ‘bare minimum’ conditions?” Kaspersky Lab had the answer and they just delivered whatever I was looking for.

Into the details
What I found is that Kaspersky™ Security for Ultra Portables is optimized and priced specifically for the users of ultra portables. Most importantly, I was happy and satisfied to find that the security provided was same as the most advanced security suites available in the market.
It has been reengineered to improve the scanning speed by 300% on the first scan and by 700% in the subsequent scan. The system boot time has been reduced to more than 35% and this makes Kaspersky one of the fastest scanning engines in the market.
Well, this is something that I was eyeing upon. The product picks up minimum system memory for operation and this has been greatly improved so that it can cope up with the system resources of the ultra portables. Since the system requirements are minimal, it gave a positive user experience!
Impressed! Though designed for ultra portables, Kaspersky Labs ensures that even the users of the nettops can enjoy the facility of the security network and the Kaspersky™ Security for Ultra Portables is designed to report any unknown threat to the Labs so that they can take proper action against the new culprit and that everyone can enjoy the benefit!
Waha! If I had some kids, I would have enjoyed this! Well, you can actually set parental control on certain sites and contents of your computer and keep your child away from those “DON’T SEE” stuff!
Application Activity Filtering
Wow! This was the first expression that I had when I first came across this. I often keep on installing certain applications which I feel to be helpful. The Kaspersky™ Security for Ultra Portables helped me to determine the trustworthiness of several applications! I know that my computer is safe!
There is nothing special to speak about this feature and is at par with all other standard products. It will automatically download and install important security updates every hour if scheduled!

Finally something that can help me to act against the spywares. Quite recently I was bugged by spywares and faced keylogging.

I enter all my private data using the virtual keyboard that helps me in protecting my information and helps avoiding identity theft!
What I personally feel is that the Kaspersky™ Security for Ultra Portables is by far the best security product for the ultra portable computer needs which can understand the needs based on your computer specifications. Try it out… you may feel the same!
