Securing Privacy Online: Kaspersky Lab Presents Standalone VPN for Macs and PCs

Kaspersky Lab has introduced Secure Connection in Nigeria, a solution for encrypting traffic on Windows and Mac computers.

Kaspersky Lab has introduced Secure Connection in Nigeria, a solution for encrypting traffic on Windows and Mac computers. Based on VPN technology, it automatically enables encryption when the risk of data interception is most dangerous for the user, for example, when connecting to public Wi-Fi or using online banking or other sites containing private information.

The 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.

Kaspersky Lab’s Secure Connection ensures 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.

Management of Secure Connection is worth mentioning separately. Monitoring the time, duration and volume of encrypted traffic transmitted for each connection is easy via a My Kaspersky personal account, and the same portal can 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,” comments Andrei Mochola, Head of Consumer Business at Kaspersky Lab. “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.”

Secure Connection is available locally and is provided on a freemium basis (an option that offers basic functions for free, and additional services for a fee). The free version allows 200 MB of encrypted traffic per device per day with no limits on the number of devices. For an additional fee, users can get unlimited traffic for five devices.
