The only issue with this software is that it extensively consumes your computer resources. I faced two issues, one on one of my team member's laptop, which takes like forever to boot, and other on our desktop, which frequently faces a blue screen issue since the software is installed. So even if the company claims that the performance is not affected, it is affected. Apart from this issue, there is not in particular that I don't like about this software.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The brand offers a large number of external applications for data protection in other environments, it would be ideal to group all these platforms in a single interface and its cost would be consolidated in a single platform that groups all these benefits instead of offering them individually, surely for Others might find this way of working useful because they can choose the services they want to use, but I think that all these services are useful and could be grouped under a single interface.

Kasperksy lacks the functionalities where it needs to trace back the whole virus chain and identifies the sources of the bugs. The complete reports for the whole session or month is also not easy at all to access.We have to go through certain protocols in order to retrieve our own affected files. It also has that negative image that once installed, it completely renders the devices useless and affects the performances of the devices in slowing down the whole processing speed.
