Kaspersky Internet Security Suite vs NOD32, Outpost Pro, and Spysweeper

Recommended Posts

I currently am using NOD 32 AV, Outpost Pro 4 firewall, and SpySweeper. While I know Kaspersky AV is good (comparable to NOD 32), I don't know about the rest of the Kaspersky suite. I am considering switching the above softwares to Kaspersky - I know generally it's better to get individual software rather than a suite, but it seems like the suites are getting better. Does anyone out there have experience with these various software combos and suite options?

I think the kaspersky suite is supposed to be pretty good. I've only tried the antivirus so I cant comment on the spyware,firewall components.

Nod32 isn't a bad program though.(its considered by many to be the best)

 

If your happy with the programs and your not getting infections then I would keep what you've got.(quite honestly for paid programs it doesn't get any better then what you have.) If your licenses are all about to expire and you just want to try kaspersky you can of course trial it here:

Do you have a router?

Thats the best defense your going to get. That router's firewall pretty much keeps everything off your computer unless you download it.

 

Since you have a router I wouldn't worry about getting any kind of security suite. Your version of outpost will keep anything from connecting without you knowing and your router will keep everything out.(so there is no need for a new software firewall).

 

If you don't like Nod32(cant imagine why you don't though?) you could get just Kaspersky AV and have the same level of protection. If Nod32 is about to expire I highly recommend you at least try etrusts 1 year trial. The program is as good as any other and it will save you the money for at least a year. :D

Spysweeper is a good program, and I doubt kaspersky antispyware can match it.

But don't forget about these:

The free programs will do just as good of a job(I would recommend AVG antispyware, and Superantispyware be installed regardless, simply because they are the best available right now)

 

If you just use a different browser, have spyware blaster and a host file, and then run the firewall and a AV your pretty much golden.(just scan every week or two with the spyware programs)

Actually Kaspersky not only matches Spysweeper but far surpasses - I was surprised when I saw the following.

I just uninstalled Spysweeper - avast and ad aware - as my machine was dogging it - installed Kaspersky Internet Security 6.0 and I am now a converted Kaspersky user......

 

Just noticed on thier site that they were voted CNET Editor's Choice Award...

 

Pretty cool should have made the switch long ago......

 

Cheers great forum BTW...

Sorry, but there has to be something bogus about that graph! Think about it. It's on the Kaspersky web site for one thing and it shows Spy Sweeper as being less than 10% effective, a program that historically is rated #1 all over the place. I suspect that graph includes viruses, which that isn't what SS is about. All I know is something isn't right there!!!
