I have Kaspersky Internet Security 18.104.22.1689 and macOS 10.14.6.
KIS is having the default installation configuration.
I have installed Microsoft Edge for Mac 22.214.171.124 (beta).
I have tested the KIS's web filter using this resource https://www.eicar.org/?page_id=3950.
If you download using the secure, SSL enabled protocol, Edge manages to download successfully the eicar_com.zip file. This should not happen. If you do this with Chrome, KIS's filter blocks the download attempt.
I would assume that the KIS's filter should be an always on man in the middle no matter what application/script makes web traffic.
