A free anti-virus, anti-malware and anti-ransomware program
Avira Free Antivirus is a free anti-malware, anti-ransomware and anti-virus program for Windows devices. It is a light security program that is easy to install and does not require a great deal of CPU (Central Processing Unit) power. This product currently offers the same features as Avira Free Security Suite, and protects your computer from things such as spyware, worms, trojans and viruses.
An efficient security program that does not hog your resources
The security software is comparatively light compared to other security programs, and it works very efficiently. It does this by employing what the company calls a “Protection Cloud.” Files are identified by the installed software, and the files are analyzed on the cloud. Since the cloud has more processing power and RAM than your computer, it is able to analyze and asses threats in a fraction of the time it would take if the software were to analyze the files locally. Scan your computer with the software, and set real-time protection with the browser safety functions. You are also able to use their VPN service for free. The company gives you 500mb of free VPN service, which means you are able to surf the net anonymously, and it may also allow you to visit websites that your country’s authorities and/or your Internet provider has blocked.
