The security functional of Windows 8

The security solution of Windows 8 wider than the previous generation system, but it still does not cover all the needs of today's users, experts say.

"The model, when you receive all the services in the complex from one supplier is certainly convenient. However, to date to build a functional, modern user who needs it is virtually impossible - you need a special product, "- said the head of the group of products Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Anti-Virus Vardan Minasyan.

According to the "Kaspersky Lab" in the company's products for Windows 8 has a number of new features not found in the system itself.

One of the key - Support for ELAM (Early-Launch Anti-Malware, ELAM - new concept of protection of the boot process of Windows from malicious activities). ELAM system enables accurate detection and block sophisticated malware - such as rootkits.

Also in the new versions of Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Anti-Virus has a function through which you can track the status of applications for the new interface and mark the infected program, and to detect and recover directly from the Microsoft Store.

In Norton, as in "Kaspersky Lab", emphasize the need for additional functions in the protective foods.

Not all customers will be satisfied with the minimum, and would like to receive, and other features that can provide solutions leader in IT Security's backing up your data, increased security for bank transactions, parental controls, combined with cloud capabilities, protection using different web browsers , the protection of social networks.

Although experts from companies developing anti-virus, stressed that despite all updates to security of Windows 8, specialized solutions safer and better, the fact remains: Microsoft has built into Windows fully installed.

Of course, this is a free antivirus of entry level, but for many people it will be sufficient. In addition, the system is more secure than its predecessors, which substantially reduces the payload on the anti-virus software in general. It is no longer as important as it was before.

This trend was felt after the release of Windows 7, which was originally a much more secure operating system than its predecessor, Windows XP, and Windows 8 was another jump in the level of protection.
