    Remember, this is the first beta release of KTS and it is quite rough atm, would not recommend it on any production environment (as with anything beta) unless you are quite technical and know what you are doing.

    Pointless to people at wilders maybe....not to Mr. Doe who is buying his security from PC World or whatever....you'd be surprised the amount of times people have posted and demanded to see backup/password managers/tune up/whatever else on the forum....and of course marketing gives the customers what they want.... I'm happy all of this "extra" stuff isn't in KIS, but it does have some pretty cool features...

    Parental control is looking way better here than in previous builds, we have the ability to block certain applications from net access and other improvements

    We have remote management of KTS clients, so if you are running a couple of computers on your home network you will be able to control KTS related tasks on all of them.

    Also have encryption of data via "encrypted containers" provided by a Kaspersky Lab company (http://www.infowatch.com/en)

    A very nice password manager, from StickyPassword (http://www.stickypassword.com)

    Actually, yes.... (obviously they can and do also submit such suggestions via technical support)

    E.g. password manager.....

    This news isn't important enough to warrant registering on their forums to view it.

    The main differences are its additional features:
    System Tuneup, remote management, backup, encryption, and password manager and new virtual keyboard

    Hi the initial protoype looks like v2010, although it might be changed as new features are added

    the last thing we need is kaspersky total protection..
    I thought kaspersky was going to focus on the important stuff aka protecting computers from malware.
    kaspersky 2009/2010 products havent been the most reliable anyway. ive had quite a few issues with updating,the program crashing etc.
    I was hoping kaspersky was going to focus on sorting out those issues but no instead they waste their time on a pointless product.

    +1 here.

    One would hope KL labs is more focused on making the current products better by fixing bugs and glitches and improving in important areas such as detection levels than starting a new beta program.

    As for the links where posters were asking for a "total security" package, most of the respondents answers to the OP in these threads weren't in favour of such a product.

    Cheers.

    As I said...pointless for us hardcore geek types.... I'm actually pretty sure a lot of normal users really want most if not all of this stuff, plus it has some pretty nifty features (the remote management and new parental control are my favourites so far)

    Security software's GUI is going more and more fancy and colourful. But I still prefer a professional one, a simple, neat and tidy GUI is already enough, not necessary with a lot of animation and fancy icons. :p

    McAfee VirusScan Enterprise and Sophos AntiVirus' GUI are just right.
