Avast! Pro Antivirus is a commercial version of Avast antivirus software designed to be used mostly in business settings. It has several handy add-ons that make it different from the Free Antivirus developed by Avast.
General functions and design are basically the same. There are four main sections with single-click access to general security tools, as well as a small but easily accessible settings menu. Avast borrows interface elements from operating system, which makes navigating the program instantly intuitive.
The functionality doesn't disappoint. Variable scanning finds all possible threats and vulnerabilities, analyzes Internet connection problems and hazards, can check the operating system at the start, offers various check scenarios and provides Web security. Protection settings are very adjustable, and cloud-based design of the program makes it easy to update, upgrade, fix any possible bugs and keep it up to date when it comes to new possible hazards. Because of such a responsible approach to optimization the antivirus works smoothly, does not impact system performance and can easily be used as a background program.
When it comes to malicious URL blocking, Avast outright eliminates most of the ones trying to gain access and simply block a great number of suspicious ones. It's not perfect, but really good. Yet what impressed me most was a scanner that checks the security of your home router by analyzing encryption, administrator rights and accessibility. more
