The Trusted Applications mode in Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 blocks all applications that are not considered Trusted (for example, the applications on which there is no information in Kaspersky Security Network database or those received from an unreliable source). Thus, Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 only allows known and trusted applications and ensures their safe execution.

The Trusted Applications mode only works with Application Control, File Anti-Virus, and System Watcher enabled.
