Malware. Ransomware. Data breaches. Cybersecurity is no longer a luxury: it’s an everyday necessity. Avast combines big data with artificial intelligence to identify and destroy cyber threats in real time so you can connect with confidence any time, anywhere. With free security software and a powerful portfolio of premium products, Avast is fueled by one determined purpose: to protect and defend your digital life.
Avast draws upon the largest threat-detection database in the world. 400 million connected sensors from our active users provide a continual stream of data facilitating learning at unprecedented speeds. Our security cloud checks over 200 billion URLs and 300 million new files monthly. We employ local monitoring and detection which gives us the ability to use specialized baits and traps to detect, defuse and defeat any malicious activity on any device.

The Avast cybersecurity network is global, protecting millions of people around the world.
Our proprietary methods for deep threat inspection allow us to see deeper than any other solution. Thanks to our morphology and mutation analysis, we don’t just see every action within an environment, we also have full visibility into the complex structure of the binary code and how it impacts what surrounds it. These extra dimensions of insight help us prevent attacks at every layer and stop 3.5 billion malware attacks per month.
In the next few years, the number of “things” connected to the internet is predicted to increase by over 285%. These devices are being hacked in record numbers. In order to protect people from this growing threat, Avast is adding a new layer of cybersecurity focused on protecting the home network. We are equipping ourselves to cover this seismic shift by creating cloud-based IoT security solutions with AI-driven behavior analysis of all data leaving and entering a house, enabling us to detect botnet attacks before they occur.
Every device you own—even ones you’ll own in the future—will benefit from the knowledge we reap every second of every day. Using Avast now will not only make today safer, but tomorrow as well.
