Both security applications provide superior malware protection and have minimal impact on performance of PCs. However, Kaspersky wins the overall comparison due to a simple and intuitive user interface, and additional features such as password management and file shredder.

The open-frame interface is based on soft colors and puts the most important functions in the center. The current status of the device appears on top while the other options are presented in large blocks that can be clicked for more information or to complete an action. The interface is simple and easy to use by most users of computers. A sleek bar on the bottom displays your subscription status.

Kaspersky received perfect scores in the real-world testing conducted by AV Comparatives. This is due to the fact that it detected all 752 samples and produced no false-positives. The program performed well in analysing files and removing malicious code after they have been removed. Moreover, it has very minimal impact on performance as well as slowdowns.

Kaspersky has a large knowledge base as well as an online community forum where customers can seek assistance and get answers. It doesn’t offer phone or live chat support, which is an issue for certain. It does, however, provide a ticketed support option for customers who require additional assistance.
