Avast already has a fantastic reputation, being a decent Windows antivirus, and its Linux software is no different. Both versions have the same malware database and passed the AV test for anti-malware and anti-spyware programs with the 10th mark.

The impressive feature list of Avast makes it perfect for file servers. The ability to detect Windows malware also makes it excellent for double booting. If you’re always on the move, connect your devices to wireless public networks, which can be extremely unsafe, Avast provides you with a Wi-Fi inspector that checks any network you connect to and informs you if it’s safe and if there are suspected connected people. To protect your passwords, the company also provides a password safe that allows you to keep all your credentials in one place. You can also use it to access your favorite sites with 1 click. One of the great features I found was the “sandbox” of the company, which allows you to install programs without worrying about infecting your computer with any unknown malware.
When you pay for an Avast subscription, you can protect your web-based input and output against hackers and stop the attacks before they are executed. This helps protect your privacy and keep your computer’s data safe. I was also impressed by the company’s “Rescue Disk“, which helps you recover your operating system and files in case of emergency.
Ransomware no longer gives you access to your computer and threatens to delete or corrupt your files if you do not pay a lot of money, often quite high. Unfortunately, it has become an increasingly popular attack and hackers can get a lot of money from the victims. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Avast takes the ransomware seriously and offers you a powerful tool to protect you against it. When installing Avast, it constantly scans the computer for any possible attack, and even exceeds expectations. Ransomware Shield from Avast lets you choose the files you want to keep in a safe place, protected from ransomware attacks. Ransomware Shield then encrypts the files and allows you to choose more files to protect. You can even choose the programs to open the files.
One of the most important things I’m looking for in my antivirus tests is how programs work in the most extreme conditions. Avast gets great marks for its ability to detect attacks and even protect against unexpected attacks. In addition, you can run Avast at all times, and your PC will not slow down or stop working at random. Another big plus for me is that Avast doesn’t outputs a lot of errors, which is a sign that it does its job well.
