Stable and reliable anti-virus for real-time protection against harmful programs

It is a great software. it gives value and i am confident when i am working offline or when browsing.

Pros

It was a great decision to try out Avast in our organization. It offers protects our devices from known viruses and emerging programs that are potentially dangerous. It gives us value for our money and is quick to detect and help eliminate such threats. We have not experienced any security issues when using this tool.

Cons

Sometimes it generates some annoying pop ups, notifications and requests to update the antivirus. Maybe there is a way of blocking them when working on some serious projects. It slows down PCs when performing deep scanning...

Avast: My Thoughts

My overall experience was great starting out, but after use I noticed the slow down that the software caused. Like most softwares it slows startup times and computer load times, so once Windows 8 released I stopped using it at all. As Windows 8 and 10 come with Defender for free that causes no slow down at all.

Pros

Simple, easy to install and verify, multiple system setup.

Cons

Cost, lack of features, hard to fully remove, slows down computer like most antivirus software.

Secure software

Excellent

Pros

Pretty complete antivirus. It has several tools apart from threat detection, it allows to defragment disks, eliminate unnecessary files. I have excellent experience with this product

Cons

As almost all paid software licenses expire very soon, a single payment should be made and technical assistance should be maintained.

We needed a reliable antivirus and we got it, Avast offers real-time protection.

The overall experience has been good. We depend on our computers and deal with sensitive information and have never experienced any cyber security threats.

Pros

I like that Avast offers holistic protection against a broad range of cyber security threats. We are always confident that our systems are safe. It detects and gets rid of any unknown or harmful programs.

Cons

I find it a little bit annoying to get a lot of pop ups to update the antivirus. It slows down PCs at times when scanning and this could be a sign that it takes much memory in my computer.

OK anti-virus software that's free

Pros

It's a free anti-virus app (with paid features) so it only just does the job since all the really good features have to be purchased.

Cons

The main interface/page of the app is filled with ads for their complimentary software/apps. The scans aren't automatically done so you need to manually scan.

A much more powerful option than traditional antivirus providing maximum security.

The computer security is very important especially in the company where many resources are managed through the computer, therefore having a software of this category allows to provide the necessary protection for the protection of the integrity of the organization and thus be able to perform the everyday activities without any problem and provide.

Pros

A simple interface, more complex functions and intelligent analysis that allows to maintain security at its highest levels as well as the integrity not only of the information but also of the equipment, one of the aspects that interests me most and I like is the secure connection, eliminate permanent files which many recover and perhaps for the company is no longer important or for the user but can contain confidential information, which with this product is eliminated once and for all and another particular aspect is to navigate with security very important today in especially when dealing with financial operations.

Cons

With respect to the reports are not very complete, the board is very simple is good at first but then it is not very useful to be a professional version lacks a little power to ensure maximum protection, however I think they are the only details, there are tests of vulnerability that have been applied to see the efficiency and this product obtained very good results.

Best Antivirus on Free mode

This antivirus does a great job on free mode

Pros

This is the best antivirus you can get for free. Imagine how better it is the paid version. It has a high resolution of virus

Cons

It asks you to enter your credit card to use. You do not need to enter it in order to get the free version, but basic end-user people might fall into this.
