Kaspersky has today released the Beta build of its upcoming security suite Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 & Kaspersky Antivirus 2011 (version 188.8.131.52). The KIS 2011 and KAV 2011 build features a completely new GUI, Windows Sidebar gadget, and a range of other new features.
I tested the new Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 on Windows XP in virtual mode. The new GUI is not finalised yet and need to be furnished deeply. A new feature I noticed is the Smart Installer Mode, which means users can install both x32 and x64 bit versions of KIS 2011 and KAV 2011 from a single downloadable executable installer which is currently 100 MB in size. The beta version offers a 30 day free license after activation.
