  • Kaspersky antiransomware: compatibility

    Hi,

    Can I use the Kasperksy antiransomware tool (kaspersky_anti_ransomware_tool_for_business_1.1.3 1.0_en.msi) available from the Kaspersky web site while using ZoneAlarm as antivirus and firewall ?

    Here are the details of my ZoneAlarm installation:

    ZoneAlarm Extreme Security version: 15.1.501.17249
    Vsmon version: 15.1.501.17249
    Driver version: 15.1.29.17237
    Antivirus engine version: 8.7.1.99
    Antivirus signature DAT file version: 1253201600
    Anti-Spam version: 6.4.3.2155

    Cheers,

    NO,

    Sorry, but The Kaspersky Antivirus Engine and Definitions that Zone Alarm uses are Modified to Work with Zone Alarm, so You MUST get all of your Updates Directly from Zone Alarm Update Servers,

    The Updates provided on Kaspersky's Website work ONLY with the Kaspersky Program and not Compatible with Zone Alarm..

      Thank you for your fast reply. However, the antiransomware proposed by Kaspersky is an independent and, apparently, stand alone program.

      See https://go.kaspersky.com/Anti-ransomware-tool.html.

      It says "Works with most security software – you don’t need to have Kaspersky Lab’s security installed to use this tool!".

      What do you think ?

        Hi;

        Thank you for your Feedback;

        It is your computer, Your Allowed to install anything you want to on it...

        My Advise is to first, make an Image Backup to an external Hard drive as a precaution, better safe than sorry if you encounter an AHA Moment..

        Here is what I recommend to you, please keep it simple:

        Do not Overlap Security tools, choose one and master it.


        Good luck,
