Prevent having your credit card or online banking data hacked and your money stolen. Use SafeZone, an Internet Security feature that secures sensitive transactions. Set your favorite banking or shopping sites to automatically launch SafeZone to ensure that all of your sensitive financial transactions stay private.
Your private data shouldn’t be available to anyone but you. So the silent firewall in Internet Security blocks hackers from stealing sensitive personal data from your PC. This new version was rebuilt to make faster decisions, work even better with Windows, and fully support IPv6.
The majority of spam includes harmful ‘phishing’ links built specifically to exploit your PC or credit card data. This type of phishing email tries to convince you it’s from a legitimate sender. Our anti-spam technology filters out such nuisances to save your time and protect you from potential headaches.
If anything nasty happens to your computer and some malware blocks access to your avast!, you fortunately were able to create an image of your avast! setup on a USB stick or CD/DVD ahead of time, which will help you restore the PC to its normal functions.
Not just a marketing phrase! Our DynaGen-powered antivirus streams hundreds of tiny real-time updates to your PC’s virus database each day, to catch new malware faster. Its decisions are based on artificial intelligence that works inside the algorithm responsible for analyzing suspicious files.
Unsure if the file you just downloaded is safe? Run it in the Sandbox, a virtual environment where you can run even the most heavily infected files safely. But you’ll know if it’s safe anyway, with our FileRep (file-reputation scanning) technology.
avast! CommunityIQ is one of the world’s fastest signature-based malware data sources. This early warning system is based on data from tens of millions of our customers who – anonymously – share any new pieces of malware they encounter.
If your PC can run the full version of Windows 7, it can run Internet Security. Period. But if you’re buying it for someone else, you may still want to check the system requirements.
You need at least Windows XP (with SP2) installed. Windows Vista, 7, 8, and even 8.1 are fully supported (unless your device runs the Starter or RT edition) in both the 32- and 64-bit variant. A 10-year old Pentium 3 processor will do, with 128 MB RAM and 750 MB of hard-drive space. And now imagine the stellar performance with your new hardware!
Now that we protect over 219 million active users on all inhabited continents, we are thinking of expanding to Antarctica. Negotiations with the local penguins are under way.
In 2013, avast! celebrated 25 years of success. In all that we do, we’re committed to earning our customers’ satisfaction and trust. And our customers’ loyalty gives us motivation to innovate and drive security to new levels. Should avast! ever not meet your expectations, remember that all our products and services come with a 30-day, no-question, money-back guarantee.
We hate bragging, but we can see you insist! We get awarded and certified often, by numerous independent, industry-related organizations and testing agencies. They praise us for the virus detection capabilities of our software, as well as for not slowing down your PC.
1. On 8 April 2014, Microsoft stops support for Internet Explorer browsers running on Windows XP. This will put your computer and data, such as credit card and online banking details, at greater risk to hackers and malware.
2. Several browser alternatives exist, but we at AVAST use and recommend Chrome, as we find it to be the most-secure option available.
