16: Avira Premium Security Suite

posted in : Avira | comment : 0

Avira Premium Security Suite is one of the many options available for an anti-virus and computer security program. While it is just one of the many options, there are some items which it protects better against than others.

It also provides some of the most stringent security which helps for users to remain secure regardless of what they may be browsing or downloading.

Avira Premium Security Suite includes a very good malware detector.

This piece of the security suite can protect a computer that is infection free from becoming infected.

Very little malware is able to get past the detection that this program has built into it.

The program also has very accurate spam filtering.

Any level of spam that tries to enter your email is quarantined into a separate folder that can be reviewed at any time.

While most users will not get a lot of spam, there can be some minor delays in downloading email due to the spam check that is performed on each and every incoming message.


The AntiVir products supply such a professional virus and malware protection through a so-called virus definition file, which is updated several times a day.

To sum up: Avira Premium Security Suite has a built in firewall that detects any exploits attempting to access your computer. This firewall ensures that all of exploits are blocked out by name. You do not have to worry about the computer becoming infected through normal viruses either. Avira Premium Security Suite has excellent protections against incoming threats that have been flagged in its large database. Avira Premium Security Suite cannot be good at everything though. One of its most common flaws is that has weak phishing protection. Phishing attacks are becoming more common as cyber criminals try to steal as much information as possible. While this is a minor problem, it can be avoided by always going directly to the bank/credit card/other account’s website to login directly. Avira Premium Security Suite is a great product for the mid level consumer who needs something more advanced and is beyond the features provided by entry level anti-virus programs.
