What is the difference between an Internet Security program and an Anti-Virus program?

I have a customer that has an Internet Security Suite (KasperSky Internet Security 2009).  However I am trying to figure out if this is considered an Anti-virus program that runs on the computer or if just scans inbound/outbound internet traffic.

Internet security program is usually a firewall or something that manages ports.  Antivirus software scans data for viruses.

Kaspersky Internet Security is a combo product that does AV and ports.  It also deos phishing and malware.  Check:
