Avast Virus Definitions VPS icon The latest virus definitions for your Avast antivirus, providing an alternative method to keep the signatures up-to-date in case an Internet connection is not available

One common feature of major antivirus solutions is the automatic update of their virus definitions files, in order to make sure that the latest threats are quickly recognized and eliminated from your computer before they affect the system's functionality.

Manual updater that does not require Internet access

Avast security products make no exception and the antivirus software can perform signature updates even several times a day, ensuring a high detection rate and the application's reliability. However, manual update is sometimes required, since Internet access is mandatory for the automatic update process to take place. Avast Virus Definitions VPS is a tool that you can use exactly for this purpose, enabling you to perform manual updates of virus signature information files for Avast products.

Keep Avast virus definitions up-to-date

Avast is one of the important players in the security software sector, providing reliable and effective software solutions for protecting computers against viruses, Trojans, worms, backdoors and other forms of malware, in real-time. The virus recognition process is based on the definition files and with new threats appearing each day, keeping the signatures up-to-date is vital for ensuring effective protection.

If your computer is connected to the Internet, the automatic update feature allows the security application to check the availability of a new version for the definition files every four hours, without requiring user interaction.

On the other hand, if this process cannot be performed or for some reason, you want to update the signature files manually, Avast Virus Definitions VPS needs to be installed. The package is released on a daily basis and includes the latest virus definitions. It performs an incremental backup, which means that the name for the new threats are added to the existing signatures.

Useful tool for updating your virus database when offline

Avast Virus Definitions VPS works with any version of the Avast Antivirus and the database update does not require the re-installation of the software.

In order to ensure continuous and effective protection of your system, the virus database of your Avast product needs to be up-to-date. A manual update with Avast Virus Definitions VPS should only be performed if really needed, in case the Internet connection is down.
