Avast antivirus protection
Avast is one of the most prominent names in the cybersecurity industry. It is known for its outstanding malware detection, web protection and other security features, such as a boot-time scanner and virtual desktop. The product is also compatible with many devices and comes with an unpaid VPN.
It is available in three plan types – Protection, Performance and Privacy – based on the number of devices you need to cover. It is also installed on Macs as well as Android devices.
Avast detected all malware on the systems we test. This is an impressive feat given that the software detects over 1.5 billion threats every month.
The software’s speedy boot-time scan is another feature worth mentioning. It scans your system for potentially dangerous files prior to when Windows starts. It took me less than an hour to run the entire scan on a computer that was running Windows 10.
The Avast product also comes with several other security tools that are focused on protecting your information. Its Sensitive Document Shield can identify sensitive documents such as tickets resumes, and invoices. It did not find any sensitive files on the PC I tested it on, however.
Avast also comes with an email Guardian feature, which will scan your email account for suspicious attachments as well as phishing links. It also offers the feature of Bank Mode that provides a virtual desktop that is safe from keystroke recording, screenshot attempts and other malware-related apps. Avast’s privacy policies are also good. The company states that it only collects data that is necessary to protect. Its analytics division Jumpshot sells information only after it has been removed from www.binghamtoninternationalblog.com/how-to-get-better-at-negotiating-deal-terms-with-transparency the database.
