Avast Premium Security 20.6.5495 is the most complete antivirus and antispyware software utility developed by Avast!. It offers a complete set of security tools that are designed to safeguard computers against a wide array of threats.
Avast Premium Security uses the same engine that powers the rest of Avast! Security products. However, it has several additional tools such as the ability to access your computer remotely, a powerful data shredder and an automated software update function.
Of course, the application includes all essential antivirus features included such as quick, full or custom scan modes, web, IM and P2P shields, real-time protection, a firewall and an antispam module.
The features which are only available in Avast Premium Security are the automatic software updater tool, the data shredder which lets you permanently delete data using military-grade algorithms and the AccessAnywhere tool that’s practically a service offering remote access and control over the computers on which you have Avast! Premier installed.
The security software also bundles several other components meant to strengthen your online security for banking transactions and shopping, a friendly password manager, browser protection, and antispam capabilities for your email accounts.
Top-of-the-line antivirus protection, a host of privacy-related features and even tools to keep your software updated and your PC junk-free
Avast’s lineup of paid security software used to include multiple products, namely Avast Pro, Avast Internet Security, and Avast Premier. From now on, however, all subscribers will have access to all paid antivirus features via a single product—Avast Premium Security. Given that the numerous feature tiers offered by developers of antivirus products tend to be quite confusing, this was probably a good move.
Avast Premium Security offers a multitude of security, privacy, and performance-related features, intended to keep your computer free of malware, safeguard your personal information and ensure your system runs smoothly.
Top-tier antivirus protection, firewall, and more
When it comes to malware protection, Avast rarely disappoints, especially in recent years. It has gotten consistently high marks in malware detection tests for quite a while, and its real-time scanning engine uses a fairly limited amount of system resources.
As expected, the product comes equipped with a firewall that helps you regulate network access. It keeps track of which applications have been managed recently, and it can be customized to a great extent.
Also included are a ransomware shield, a Wi-fi inspector, a sandbox for testing files in a virtual environment, and a fake website detector that prevents your DNS from being hijacked.
Helps you stay private on the web
Privacy is a major concern nowadays, and Avast’s premium product can help you secure it. Your standard subscription provides access to a password manager, file shredder, webcam shield, and sensitive data protector.
For an additional monthly subscription, you can also take advantage of Avast’s SecureLine VPN service, which can anonymize your web browsing and unlock certain regional restrictions.
Lastly, the AntiTrack Premium service is designed to help keep your private information out of the hands of advertisers. It requires a separate subscription, or you can just get Avast Ultimate, which includes both this feature and the VPN service.
Keep your PC clean and up-to-date
It’s well known that leftover files and unnecessary programs can slow down your PC and use valuable disk space. With Avast Premium Security, you can get rid of these junk files and even detect other software that may be hindering performance.
The application can also help you find updates for your software and device drivers. Outdated programs can pose security risks, and outdated drivers may reduce performance and even cause crashes.
Protect multiple devices
If you opt for a multiple device subscription, you can secure several Windows PCs or Macs, as well as your Android and iOS devices. Dedicated apps are available for all these platforms.
Avast Premium Security is a dependable and feature-packed security solution that can do everything from detecting malware, protecting your online privacy and speeding up your PC. It is a great choice for users who want more than just a simple antivirus, and its intuitive UI makes it easy to work with as well.
