Avast Driver Updater.

AV-Test’s most recent look at Avast was in July and August when it analyzed Avast Free. During those tests, the protection against zero-day và website và gmail threats was 99.2 percent in July and 100 percent in August based on 275 samples. The larger “widepsread and prevalent malware” thử nghiệm with nearly trăng tròn,000 samples had a score of 99.9 và 100 percent in July & August, respectively.

Avast Premier’s Protection section.

For our in-house performance tests, Avast remains an excellent choice when you’re looking lớn avoid too much găng tay on system resources. Before Avast Premier was installed, the demo PC using PC Mark 8 scored 2,436. With Avast Premier running & after a full system scan that number went up khổng lồ 2,459. Bigger is better in this kiểm tra và that’s a pretty good improvement over a bare Windows 10 system—a common theme we’ve seen with these tests over the last year.

For the HandBrake demo, without Avast Premier installed, the thử nghiệm PC completed the job of converting a 3.8GB 1080p MKV file to lớn the Android premix in one hour and 15 minutes. With Avast Premier running, và after a full system scan, that time went up khổng lồ one hour and 16 minutes. That’s a slight uptichồng but nothing to get worried about except for maybe low-end PCs under very heavy loads.

Conclusion

Avast Premier 2019 is a solid security suite with some good extra features such as the webcam blocker and the improved Do Not Disturb mode. I’m not so sure the improved anti-phishing feature is as good as it should be, as its results were mixed in my brief experience with the feature. Still, the testing houses give Avast high marks and overall the company has a great reputation as a svào security hàng hóa.


The bigger issue, then, is that price. So many other suites cover more devices for less. You can get Avira Prime, for example, for $130 to cover up khổng lồ 25 devices with all the bells và whistles. A similarly priced plan for Avast Premier covers just five devices, & you’ll still have khổng lồ pay for some of the extra utilities on top of that.
