Avast earns "Top Rated Product" from AV-Comparatives!

Feb 12, 2018 2:03PM PST

Our team is very proud to announce that we've been selected as a Top Rated security product for 2017 by independent testing organization AV-Comparatives.

AV-Comparatives puts 21 different security products through rigorous testing to see which are the best at preventing both known and new malware attacks, can do so without slowing down the PC, and are also capable of removing malware.

Avast was one of only a select few companies who scored 99% or higher in all ten Real-World Protection tests throughout 2017... and this was with Avast Free! Our next generation detection mechanisms, such as Behavior Shield and CyberCapture, enable us to stay up-to-date with the latest emerging threats, even those that have never been seen before.

See the full study here, or check out Avast to keep your PC's and Macs safe and sound. If you have any questions, please let us know!
