Overall Satisfaction with Kaspersky Work Space Security

We currently use Kaspersky Work Space antivirus on some of the work computers that do the same jobs daily (utilize in house programs only). Because of the recent upgrade to Windows 10 on many of the computers were employees have to do more surfing of the web with google and such, we have had to switch those computers off Kaspersky to McAfee Plus as Kaspersky was not detecting all malware coming through and had to deal with cleaning up more pcs that what we felt should be. Once we switched those couple computers to McAfree, we no longer had the problem.
  • Built in malware protection
  • Easy to install and use
  • Needs updating to be able to keep up with current versions such as Windows 10
  • A positive impact would be the cost is ideal for small companies
  • A negative impact is it is not able to detect all malware when using Windows 10
Kaspersky Work Space Security does not protect as well as McAfee security and I would recommend the switch to anyone using Kaspersky Work Space Security, especially for small businesses who are just trying to save on costs. You will incur more costs trying to clean up malware and viruses off work station computers with Kaspersky Work Space Security than McAfee or other antivirus programs.
It is best suited for small companies that have older operating versions, at least for Windows based OS. If you have a company where the computers are only utilized for in house applications and very little web surfing, Kaspersky Work Space Security would be appropriate.
