|Kaspersky Internet Security 2013|
This isn’t anything like as polished as some of the betas we’ve seen, though. The interface isn’t finished, for instance, and the build has Application Verifier and trace logging turned on, which means it will slow your PC down considerably. You won’t want to leave the suite installed for long.
And as a further complication, there’s no official announcement of what’s new yet. You’ll need to be familiar with Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 to spot any improvements.
At a first look, though, the suite seems to contain a new Secure Keyboard tool, which works with your regular keyboard to protect the data you enter at key websites (banks, social networks, password fields in general) from keyloggers. But if you were happy with the old Virtual Keyboard then don’t worry -- that’s available, too.
It looks like the Safe Banking feature has been extended, automatically running a protected browser to safely access your bank sites, payment providers such as Paypal, and others.
And elsewhere, it appears that Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 is streamlining its protection a little, dropping tools like Safe Run and Proactive Defence and relocating their functions to other modules.
There’s nothing too exciting for the uncommitted user, then -- not just yet, anyway. And the suite’s heavy performance impact means it’s not going to be for most people. If you’re a Kaspersky fan then you might be interested to see how many other new features you can spot in Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 beta, though. Just make sure you install it on a spare system: it’s really not ready for prime time at the moment.

Internet security solutions usually bear a richer plethora of layers of protection than traditional antivirus software, by attaching antispam, antispyware, privacy protection and parental control modules to the regular antivirus engine. The trial version of Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 can be used for 90 days (3 months) for free. According to Kaspersky, Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 technical preview is fully compatible with Windows 8 Consumer Preview. It is fully integrated with Windows Security Center. So you can control the features of KIS 2013 directly from Windows Security Center.
The default antivirus for Windows 8, Windows Defender, will automatically be disabled when KIS 2013 is installed. So you don’t need to do anything else other than downloading and installing the security suite.
