Detailed Review

Avast Pro Antivirus is an antivirus software provided by Avast Software, a security company founded in 1988 and headquartered in Prague, Czech Republic. The company offers various security solutions for home, business, and schools, that help to protect desktop and mobile devices from malicious software that might threaten the user's security and privacy. The company has helped to protect more than 230 million users from various threats with their antivirus solutions.

Sandbox Environment for Testing

Avast Pro Antivirus allows you to test any file in its sandbox environment, so that you can be sure not to put your system in danger. When you get a suspicious file, you should not open or execute the file directly in your system, since it can potentially harm your system in the way that you don't know. By running a sandbox environment from Avast, you can test the file within the virtual environment without affecting your main system. The sandbox environment acts as a virtual environment that allows you to run anything. So, even though the file is infected or contains malicious threats, it can only affect the sandbox environment itself, and you can delete the file safely from your system if it is proven to be dangerous.

Smart Scan with Home Network Security

The smart scan feature allows you to check your overall PC condition in just one click of a button. The smart scan feature checks all possible threats that you have within your system, and remove any infected files from your system immediately. It uses an intelligent antivirus technology to ensure that all threats can be identified and removed from your system instantly. And not only it can scan your system for security threats, it also has a home network security feature so that you can protect your network and router from being hacked by someone, allowing him access to your devices and properties through your wireless connection. Avast Pro Antivirus can set your network security and prevent any kinds of hacker attacks.

SecureDNS and SafeZone

If you do a lot of online banking and online shopping activities, you need to make sure that all of your confidential data is protected securely. Hackers can steal your confidential data easily if you don't protect it during your online shopping or online banking activities. The SafeZone feature from Avast provides the necessary protection that helps to guard your data by creating a protective space that cannot be accessed by hackers. The SecureDNS feature allows you to keep your DNS secure so that it can't be manipulated by hackers to send you into phishing websites used to steal your important information. It keeps your router settings secure and prevent any unauthorized alterations that can give a big risk to your security and privacy.

Conclusion

Avast Antivirus Pro offers a complete security protection that helps to safeguard your online security and privacy within your PC. One of the best features that is offered by Avast Antivirus Pro and not offered by most antivirus software is the Sandbox feature. This feature works as a test environment that allows you to test any file within the virtual environment, which prevents it from infecting the whole system if it contains malicious software. Aside from that, the antivirus software also has the feature that allows you to keep your router and internet network secure from any hacker attack. With the free mobile security system that is provided by Avast, you can protect your PC and mobile devices with maximum protection.
