AVG Internet SecurityAll-in-one protection against viruses, spyware, spam and hackers
Today we need several types of applications to provide adequate protection against viruses, spyware, spam and hackers. There are many free and effective security applications available for home users these days, but maintaining all these applications can be quite a daunting task. They need to be updated individually and while most anti-virus applications have an auto update feature, many anti-spyware, anti-spam and firewall applications have to be updated manually on a regular basis.
AVG Internet Security combines virus, spyware, spam and firewall protection into one, easy to use application.
Virus and Spyware Protection
The highly effective AVG Anti-Virus provides protection against viruses. It contains value added features, not available in AVG Free Edition, like the creation of customised scheduled tasks, Smart Scanning technology (the ability to recognise a file type regardless of its extension) and advanced heuristic detection for Potentially Unwanted Programs. The inclusion of the AVG Anti-Spyware engine makes AVG Internet Security an all-round malware protection package.
Anti-spam and anti-phishing protection by Spamcatcher, a Bayesian spam filter with Whitelist and Blacklist functionality, making it easy to prevent e-mail from known and trusted sources from being flagged as spam and to block spam sent from specific e-mail addresses. RBL checking can be enabled to compare all e-mail message fingerprints against Realtime Blackhole Lists like the ones served by Spamcop and Spamhaus. Engine performance settings and the aggressiveness of the spam filter can be tweaked for suit your personal preferences.
The AVG Firewall is easy to use and doesn't annoy the user with thousands of warnings and popups like most other firewalls. The automatic configuration wizard does a very accurate analysis of the software and services used on your computer, therefore reducing manual rule creation tasks to a minimum. Firewall rules can be imported and exported for backup purposes and it is easy to transfer these rules from one computer to other another.
Each component of AVG Internet Security can be accessed, maintained and updated from one central location, namely the Control Center. Updates are downloaded automatically, so manual updates will not be required.
AVG Internet Security is highly recommended for people and organisations looking for all-in-one protection against viruses, spyware, spam and hackers. It includes benefits like 24/7 professional technical support by e-mail at no extra cost, high-speed updates, 64-bit and server support, multiple languages, customisable settings and you get consent for commercial use.
