Kaspersky Internet Security and above versions have HIPS and firewall.
https://www.kaspersky.com/enterprise-security/wiki-section/products/application-control-and-hips

It's pretty similar to how you grant permissions for smartphone apps. The settings are per application so you can grant or block access to camera, registry, DLL injection, etc. for each application. They also have a database of trusted applications if manual configuration is not your thing. For example, Microsoft Teams will automatically be considered as trusted so you won't get those annoying popups asking you to grant access to the webcam.

Yes. I don’t think there is any expiration or shelf life for the code. It’s active from the day you actually use it.

For each trust category, rules define an application's ability to:
  • Modify files, registry keys (read, write, create, delete)
  • Establish network connections
  • Access web camera and microphone (stricter rules are applied here even for trusted applications)
  • Execute system operations, e.g. open process, windows shutdown. It is important to control system operations, because malware can use them to interfere with other processes' memory, inject code or interfere with OS operation.

Folks may wanna read-up on the alleged ties between Kapersky Labs and Russian intel agencies, which Kapersky has denied (of course). But when DHS bans a product from use within the U.S. civilian federal government, it certainly brings the security of that product into question.

And yes, they're just allegations. Just go into this with your eyes open, that's all.

There's actually fairly good evidence of ties between the Russian government and the company. If you know anything about Putin and the way he's running Russia, you would choose another product based on that alone. I wouldn't purchase security software if the company was based in Russia - or in a number of other countries. Putin is the most totalitarian leader Russia has had since Stalin.

I used to love Kaspersky but, yes, the security of the software itself is a huge concern. I no longer use it. Research this topic before installing it on your machines!

claims were largely refuted by independent trade journals, also they're headquartered in Switzerland now. Kaspersky was also one of the first brought in to clean up after the Solarwinds fiasco. As well as intercepting data from an "NSA contractor using unapproved software"....

Thanks for explanation. I guess it's been sufficient with the kasp security cloud free + win defender FW.
