Avast Internet Security icon Complete protection for your PC, including anti-spam, firewall, anti-spyware and antivirus, all working together in order to prevent malware

Avast Internet Security is the most complete suite that the company issues. It bundles an antivirus module, a two-way firewall, antispam and antispyware modules that combine their power to provide an unbreakable wall against all kinds of threats.

Avast! Internet Security uses the same antivirus engine as the company’s Pro Antivirus. It provides real-time protection and various scan modes for both your computer and for removable devices as well. A special type of scan is the Boot-Time mode, which scans the operating system right before startup, making sure to clean any infected files (it doesn't even take long).

In addition to that, the Firewall module builds a shield against hackers and protects your identity against theft. Your efforts are reduced to selecting your network type (work, home or public). An expert mode is available for advanced users (includes user-defined network and packet rules).

Moreover, Avast’s Internet Security also provides protection for your email via the Antispam module, a feature that prevents phishing attempts and blocks untrusted senders for Outlook and POP3/IMAP servers.

Maximum safety for your working environment is achieved via the virtualization feature. It goes by the name of ‘Sandbox’ and it’s a place that you can use to open applications or webpages that you don’t trust.

To top it all off, you’ve got the SafeZone module that you quickly grow fond of, because it acts as an isolated space for online shopping and e-banking. Your transactions are protected and your activity is not in danger of being tracked.

In conclusion, Avast! Internet Security is a complex protection suite. You can rest assured that it has the ability to protect your computer and your online and social activity in real time.
