avast antivirus protect
Avast is among the biggest names in cybersecurity market. It has a track record of excellent malware detection and web protection, and it offers numerous other security features, including a boot-time scan and virtual desktop. It is also compatible with multiple devices and includes an unpaid VPN service.
There are three plans to choose from based on the many devices you wish to cover. In addition to PCs, it can also be installed on Mac and Android devices.
Our tests showed that Avast detected every single piece of malware on all the systems we tested it on. This is a remarkable feat given that the software detects over 1.5 billion threats every month.
Another key feature of the program is its speedy boot-time scanning, which scours your system for potentially harmful files prior to Windows even starts. It took me less than an hour to complete the scan on a PC with Windows 10.
Avast also provides a range of other security tools that are aimed to protect information. Its Sensitive Document Shield can review detect sensitive documents like tickets, resumes, and invoices. It was unable to detect any sensitive documents, however, on the system I tested it on.
