Also, the info in this link may help You to know the different features of KSCloud:

https://help.kaspersky.com/KSCloud/Win2.0/en-US/152975.htm
How is this different from KTS though? These features all look the same as KTS.

Yes, KSCloud (Paid) has all the security features of KTS, but also has some extra ones oriented to manage multiple devices in Home (for example) and via "My Kaspersky" service.

KSC It has the function of monitoring the status of the hard disk. (SMART). The program reports mass passwords and possible hacking of your accounts.
I apologize for using google translator.

That's ok, So how does this work with monitoring, if having KSC, are you saying that I wont have to login to my kaspersky to see this information?

What other things does it monitor?

I remember there are some extra features about password security, Wi-Fi inspector (to check devices connected) and system vulnerabilities checking, You better check this link and its different sections talking about KSCloud:

https://support.kaspersky.com/kscloud19#kb

And specially Tools section.
The link you gave me doesn't give me indepth information. Like all the features, indepth explanations.

Another thing, how much software gets installed with this?
So far there is nothing showing me why I should change to KSC.

Hello Beanslappers,

("why change") why are you thinking of changing?

With all due with respect:

You gave me patch notes. I didn't ask for patch notes. Full features and patch notes are two different things.

When you do sales, you know you need a decent sales pitch, not just something that been the same. Most of us kiwi's need information, me personally, I am someone that wants the full information on things and products. This has been a habit since a few of the place's that I have worked at.

So far all I am seeing is there is no real difference between KTS and KSC. Nothing that has been said is convincing enough for me. Nothing is different at all, everything except the monitoring of hard drives is different to KTS at all.

To any moderators watching this post: If you like you can close this post.

I'm so sorry Beanslappers. I was not intending to do anything other than to "try" to assist. I don't do sales & I didn't glean anything from your queries that that was the focus.
Again, my apologies.
Best regards, from across the ditch.
Thats ok. I know there are not much people that asked about the in's and outs of things, Don't feel bad about it ok? You did good with what you understood.

This is just my opinion and not meant to be a harsh criticism, but why does this question about "KTS vs KSC" keep coming up over and over and over again on the Kaspersky Community Forums? My take on this issue is that Kaspersky (as a whole) is simply not doing a good enough job at explaining the comparative differences between there own products. This is definitely not a good business model for Kaspersky or it's end users if these types of questions keep appearing on their own support forums.

Let's get this addressed Kaspersky by providing clearer comparative differences between products so there is less confusion and more transparency among your products so we can obtain the correct product for our security needs! 🙂
I know your doing your best. All the mods here are, and the helpers.

I do really agree with you, kaspersky needs to be more informative about their products.

Don't be hard on yourself ok? You and all the mods here are doing the best you guys can, and doing the best with what you got.
Hi everyone, I too want to know the difference between KTS and KSC. KTS seems to cover everything I need but I wanted to see the comparison table between them, but there isn't one. What does KSC do that KTS doesn't?

I'm an individual user and don't necessarily need the cover on my iPhone or iPad (but hey, if it comes with it then so be it). But I do need the cover on my Windows PC. I like the idea that KTS covers the files on my computer, that's important.

It obviously does all the anti-virus, malware etc so why should I switch to KSC?

Welcome. Please review all of the informative links that have been posted in several posts located above, in this topic thread. Any better?
Not really, what does KSC does that KTS doesn't? What am I getting extra? I did check the links but KSC doesn't really explain what it does re anti-virus, malware protection, real-time monitoring which KTS seems to do. Is KSC more cloud based and something to do with all that?
Hi Di9girl,

The KSC (Kaspersky Secure Connection) is a VPN, KTS is the actual security suit that has the firewall antivirus etc.

I'm afraid it's a lot more complicated than that.
There are three products that can be found under the abbreviation 'KSC':
Kaspersky Security Center
Kaspersky Security Cloud
Kaspersky Secure Connection

The first one is part of the business solutions,
the second corresponds to an extended Total Security,
the third is the KL VPN solution (KSeC).

Ok then I change my question, there is no major differents apart from kaspersky selling this product because half of the things that they say Security cloud can do, is the same the KTS can do, no matter how they try and sugar coat it.

Even though I created this post, but I temp forgot about the rest of the KSC's because I normally use KSC for kaspersky secure connection.
I got this response from support:

"Kaspersky Security Cloud is quite similar to Total Security and the key differences are:

- Security Cloud is mandatory to be used with a Kaspersky 'My Kaspersky' account
- Security Cloud does not include a Safe Kids license, in its Personal edition but only in the family one
- Security Cloud can be installed on iOS devices, while there is no application compatible with iOS device for Total Security"
You can do most of the same things anyway with KTS, and KSN is the cloud so no difference.

I have read this thread and 2-3 others on this topic and it is maddening.  Shouldn’t be such a pain in the ass to see the differences, when you select compare products on KTS product page it should actually have a comparison to KSC.  Pretty logical

Would be nice if all these extra programs (Safe Money, Safe Kids, VPN, Password Manager) were all within the parent app (KTS and KSC) instead of downloading them all separately.  
 

Only difference between KTS and KSC seems to be the Data leak monitoring, connected WiFi devices, and SMART hard drive features on KSC correct?

Exactly, keep everything in one package!  And yes, I think you’re right, that’s what tech support told me, the differences are Data leak monitoring, connecting WiFi devices, SMART hard drive features.

 

Anyway, I went with another AV.  Kaspersky had too many annoying pop-ups and sent my email program into meltdown with all the warnings.  I gave it up after 5 mins!
