avast! Internet Security 6 is a new product from avast! and includes all the award wining antivirus software plus an excellent firewall and anti-spam solution. It represents a best-in-class solution for any Windows-based workstation.
New Fast Antivirus and anti-spyware engine
This is the same engine as avast! antivirus 6 Pro. The state of the art scanning engine provides reliable protection against viruses, spyware and other forms of malicious software.
Real time anti-rootkit protection built-in
Rootkits are programs that install on your computer while keeping themselves and their activities hidden to remain invisible to the user. Unique "on access" technology checks all kernel-mode drivers that the operating system is loading for signs of rootkit behavior. This enables even unknown rootkits to be detected and stopped before they can do any damage.
Based on the class-leading GMER technology, avast! can now scan your live system for rootkit infections; no boots disks are required. If a rootkit is discovered, it is initially disabled and then if it can be safely removed without affecting the performance of the computer, it is removed. avast! antivirus includes a virus database which can be automatically updated to provide continuous protection against rootkits.
Silent background firewall
The silent firewall enables you to control incoming and outgoing traffic from your computer. Protection is based on heuristic and behavioral analysis, and a white list of known safe applications. There are three network settings which can be changed depending on the type of connection.
New comprehensive SPAM and fraudulent message filter. It works as a plug-in to MS Outlook and a generic POP3/IMAP4 proxy for other email clients.
