Endpoint Protection Technologies
Antivirus and anti-spyware engine
An innovative scanning engine protects against viruses, spyware, and other malicious agents.
Real-time anti-rootkit protection
Prevents stealth malware (‘rootkits’) that, when loaded by the computer’s OS, are invisible to ordinary scanners.
Streaming (real-time) virus database updates
Now you get each virus signature sent to you in real-time via a connection to the AVAST Virus Lab, rather than needing to wait for a traditional database update. Your database will be continuously updated with the latest definitions.
File reputation system
FileRep lets you know whether a file is safe before you open it – determined in part by how many people have the file and how new the file is. The technology is also used internally, to help the scanning engine make more intelligent decisions.
Suspicious programs are now automatically placed inside the avast! Sandbox. When the program finishes, a comprehensive report is generated and, based on the program’s behavior, you are given a recommendation on how to treat it in the future.
Enabled by a single click of the mouse, it allows you to completely isolate the browser from the rest of the system – even if the browser gets hijacked, your system stays clean.
The version 7 browser plugins provide greater protection against phishing sites, including heuristic detection of new phishing sites. Also, we can now detect fake/planted SSL certificates, preventing man-in-the-middle attacks against https sites. Additionally, we have extended browser support to Apple™ Safari™.
Available only in Pro Antivirus and Internet Security, our SafeZone™, your ultimate clean and secure window for financial transactions, now auto-prompts you to move to the SafeZone from your regular browser.

In the event of infection or other unauthorized activity, the central console receives immediate real-time alerts.
avast! Enterprise Administration maintains managed devices in a tree structure, which can be based on, for example, the geographical or organizational structure of the network. This makes it possible also to assign appropriate administration access rights and policies. The tree can be built automatically or imported from a text file.
Discovery / Remote deployment
avast! Enterprise Administration enables unattended, remote deployment of avast! antivirus software, even spanning multiple domains. To reduce the potential for security breaches, it also enables discovery of new or ‘rogue’ machines on the company network.
avast! Enterprise Administration offers a wide range of graphical and tabular reports, which can be either generated and viewed directly in the Administration Console, or exported and saved in a variety of formats (e.g. PDF, HTML, DOC). Reporting can be scheduled daily, weekly, or whatever makes the most sense.
avast! Enterprise Administration notifies, via various customizable alerting methods, about the activity on your network. Set up notifications via email (using SMTP or MAPI), Windows network pop-up messages, or even have them sent to a network printer.
avast! Enterprise Administration updates incrementally, with only new data downloaded, to greatly reduce transfer time and bandwidth requirements. Any number of mirror servers can be set up to work in a hierarchy.
avast! Enterprise Administration complies with company security policies by allowing particular access rights to users and/or user groups. Each item (e.g. task, computer, event, computer group) has an access control list, with visibility set by the main administrator(s). All communications to the console are encrypted with SSL protocol and identified via a digital certificate.
Support for notebook users
avast! Enterprise Administration supports mobile devices, whose users connect almost randomly to the company network and often try to bypass restrictions set by the administrators. Initiated by POP client, updates are automatically downloaded and applied whenever a device connects to the company network – even if via VPN or over the internet.
