Malaysia IT Fair 2015 Has Landed!
Finally, after talking about the Malaysia IT Fair 2015 for the last month, I cannot believe it is finally here and today is already the 3rd day. It will be from 28-31 August so take the advantage of the long weekend to go to find some great deals. For eg, our friend Tommy managed to get the RM199 WD Elements 1.5 Hdd there yesterday after lining up for the Happy Hour deals. Take note you have to go really early, tomorrow is your last chance. There are only 10 units 1TB Hdd and 30 Units 1.5TB Hdd for grabs. Of course there are so many more deals inside the fair, this is the pre-fair sale only.
For Car lovers check this out, you might even get to bring a car home why not? You have to visit MITF to find out how.
USB Drives and Flash cards galore. Nowadays one person need a lot more than one USB drive for us to store all our big pics and files in case we face data loss.

Finally we were inside and we were to witness the Kaspersky 2016 Grand Launch. Yes next time I will be selling this Antivirus to my clients not the old one anymore, why? Because there are so many new features in the his latest version and we should always update to the latest antivirus to ensure our devices are well protected from cyber criminals and hackers and viruses.

We also attended the Press Conference held at Magnum Cafe. Here we learned more the latest Kaspersky 2016 and had a Q&A session.
There are three main new features not found before in KIS 2015, firstly is Private Browsing, where your data is protected from social sites and agencies so that your browser activity is private and safe, locations and search history cannot be stolen as many agencies will try to resell them to send targetted ads to you. I have to repair many client's PCs many times when they do not realise that the virus has installed another software or hijacker into their system and cause it to slow down or worse case blue screen and cannot start. This feature is able to remove those illegal software via a plugin.
The next feature is KIS 2016 Change Control that is able to detect any process that tries to make a change in your system and a report will be sent to you so you cannot you don't know something has changed.It is so important to keep updated using the latest KIS 2016 to ensure the latest protection.
Another awesome feature is Webcam Protection that prevents interception of images from the webcam and you will be notifed you when someone tries to access your laptop camera to spy on you. This is quite scary and most people do not realise that some hackers can do this. Imagine some is in your room virtually watching everything you do, it is real and they do have the technology to do this! So get protected today!
Kaspersky Internet Security priced at RM179 for 2 boxes of 3-users 1-year licenses, making it only RM29.80 per user.
