2017 - Kaspersky Lab released free antivirus to challenge AVG
Kaspersky Lab has launched a free version of its antivirus software in the U.S. with plans for a global rollout over the next four months. Like AVG Kaspersky Free provides the core essentials, including email and desktop antivirus protection, the ability to quarantine infected files, as well as automated updates. The free version lacks some of the premium features users can purchase for $50 annually per device, including virtual private network (VPN), parental controls and extra protection for online financial transactions. Kaspersky claims that its free software option is light on ads, though users may be paying for the uncluttered interface by providing user data to Kaspersky.
