Quite standard, we find:
- Antivirus, anti-spyware and antirootkit protection continues;
- Antivirus and mailbox protection, instant messaging and web browsing;
But o Avast! stands out it is with functions such as WebRep, which allows the display of the reputation of the sites browsed or displayed in your search engine (and this for all browsers).
We will also note the use (automatic or not) of a "Sandbox" and of a reverse "Sandbox" to, respectively, execute the execution of sensitive programs without risking damage and grab external applications which would try to access to the system.
The firewall, and it is important to note, combines heuristic analysis and behavioral analysis which sets it apart from many of the competing personal protection suites.
