Online privacy: Kaspersky’s standalone VPN for Macs, PCs

The South African-based Kaspersky Lab, has introduced Secure Connection into its Nigerian market for encryption of traffics on Windows and Mac computers, reports ITRealms.

Based on the Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology, ITRealms gathered that with Secure Connection Kaspersky Lab, automatically enables encryption when the risk of data interception is most dangerous for the user, for example, when connecting to public Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) or using online banking or other sites containing private information.

ITRealms reports that unprotected or poorly protected, transfer of data puts a person's privacy, data and even their money at risk.

“By using tools that are freely available on the Internet, intruders can read and use information transmitted over these connections, including messages, passwords and files,” the lab warned.

ITRealms equally reports that, according Head, Consumer Business at Kaspersky Lab, Andrei Mochola, that Secure Connection promises reliable encryption of transmitted data, and if the user forgets to enable it, the solution will display a reminder when it is most needed.

“For example, it will offer its services if a Wi-Fi network is unsafe or – in the case of the Windows version – if the user attempts to open a site with critical information (email, online banking, e-payment system, online store or social networking site) without encryption. If preferred, Secure Connection can also be set to manual control or continuous encryption,” he said.

Mochola, noted that management of Secure Connection is worth mentioning separately, adding that duration and volume of encrypted traffic transmitted for each connection is easy via a My Kaspersky personal account, and the same portal could be used to control remaining megabytes in the free version.

“User security is our priority, which is why we aim to provide multi-level protection at every stage where users are at risk of losing anything. Traffic encryption is an essential component of digital protection, and we are now happy to provide it to all owners of Windows and Mac computers, and by the end of the year – to all mobile users as well,” he said.
