Kelebihan avast! Versi 7

avast! mengeluarkan versi terbarunya yaitu v7 berikut kelebihannya :

ImprovedAutoSandbox

Suspicious programs are now automatically placed inside the avast! Sandbox. When the program finishes, a comprehensive report is generated and, based on the program’s behavior, you are given a recommendation on how to treat it in the future.

ImprovedBrowser Sandboxing

Enabled by a single click of the mouse, it allows you to completely isolate the browser from the rest of the system – even if the browser gets hijacked, your system stays clean.

ImprovedWebRep

The version 7 WebRep browser plugins provide greater protection against phishing sites, including heuristics detection of new phishing sites. Also, we can now detect fake/planted SSL certificates, preventing man-in-the-middle attacks against https sites. Additionally, we have extended browser support to Apple™ Safari™.

ImprovedSafeZone™

Available only in Pro Antivirus and Internet Security, our SafeZone™, your ultimate clean and secure window for financial transactions, now auto-prompts you and moves to the SafeZone from your regular browser.

Greater Usability

Newavast! Account portal

Your web-based avast! Account portal is your personal directory for all your avast! related data. It allows you to track all your avast! installations, complete with their health data, status information, and useful statistics.

NewRemote Assistance

Our new Remote Assistance tool lets you initiate remote support from any ‘geek’ among your friends or family who agrees to help. Initiated by you, it routes through AVAST’s servers, bypasses firewalls, and can be terminated by you at any time. You will never have to ask for help over the phone again.

ImprovedEasy-to-use user interface

The avast! user interface has been optimized to be more intuitive. Novices will find it easy to use, while experts are still able to customize every aspect of the software to their individual needs.

NewCustomizable installation

Your avast! software can now be installed in Compatibility Mode, meaning that it will run perfectly along with your other antivirus software to act as a second line of defense. And even if you install avast! in normal mode, you are given the possibility to install the components you really need.

Now even faster AND less resource-hungry

Independent tests showed that avast! 6 was one of the fastest and least resource-intensive antivirus products available. We made version 7 even better: this is our best-performing product ever.

Windows 8 Beta compatible

avast! 7 runs great on Windows 8 and even has some cool new Windows 8 specific features, such as the Early-Load Antimalware Driver (ELAM), which snaps into the Windows 8 Secure Boot process to provide additional protection against system-level rootkits and bootkits.


Core Technologies

Antivirus and anti-spyware engine

Innovative scanning engine protects against viruses, spyware, and other malicious agents.

Real-time anti-rootkit protection

Prevents stealth malware (‘rootkits’) that, when loaded by the computer’s OS, are invisible to ordinary scanners.

Silent Firewall avast! Internet Security only

Stops hackers, using heuristic and behavioral analysis and a white list of safe applications.

Antispam avast! Internet Security only

Comprehensive spam and phishing filter, which works as a plug-in to MS Outlook and a generic POP3/IMAP4 proxy for other email clients.

avast! WebRep

Provides website reliability and reputation ratings according to community-provided feedback.

avast! CommunityIQ

Our technology uses a global network of sensors to provide us with data taken (anonymously) from the actual web-browsing experiences of an opt-in group of avast! users. This info is then used to protect all avast! users with the most up-to-date information on viruses and infected websites.
Because of avast! CommunityIQ, avast! has discovered 251,844 infected websites and protected 33,924,256 people from visiting them in the last 30 days.

Hi-Tech Features

Boot-time scanner

Scans your computer for infections before the OS can start to activate any viruses beneath it (now applies to Windows 7 and Windows Vista).

avast! SafeZone™ avast! Pro Antivirus and Internet Security only

Opens a new (clean) desktop so that other applications don’t see what’s happening – perfect for banking or secure ordering/shopping – and leaves no traces once it’s closed.

AutoSandbox

Prompts users to run suspicious applications in the virtual Sandbox environment.

avast! Sandbox avast! Pro Antivirus and Internet Security only

Provides an extra layer of security for you to run your PC and its applications in a virtual environment – where any attacks are thus targeted (instead of your real PC).

OS supported:

  • Windows XP SP2+ 32-bit
  • Windows Server 2003, Vista, 7 (32-bit and 64-bit) only RTM versions are supported (Windows 7 SP1 RC is currently also supported)

OS not supported:

  • Windows 2000
  • Windows XP 64-bit (with any SP installed)
  • Windows Server 2003 64-bit

Intelligent Scanner

Reduces the number of required file scans up to 80% through a white list of safe applications. Files identified as safe are not rescanned unless they change.

Silent/Gaming Mode

Automatically detects full-screen applications and disables pop-ups and other notifications without compromising security.

Green computing

Leaves a minimal “footprint” due to its efficient and effective technology.

avast! Real-time Shields – a team of 24/7 guards

File System Shield

Real-time scanning of opened/executed files.

Mail Shield

Scans all incoming/outgoing email for malware (a special plug-in is used for MS Outlook).

Web Shield

Scans all visited web pages, downloaded files, and java scripts. Thanks to the intelligent stream scanning feature, the Web Shield doesn't slow your web browsing.

P2P Shield/IM Shield

Checks files downloaded via P2P programs and while using IM or “chat” programs.

Network Shield

Protects against network-based viruses with two main components: a URL blocker for malicious URLs, and a lightweight intrusion-detection system.

Script Shield

Detects malicious scripts hidden in web pages and prevents them from hijacking and potentially damaging your computer.

Behavior Shield

Stops ‘zero-day’ threats and unknown malware before virus definitions have been obtained.

Others

64-bit support

Supports the 64-bit architecture platforms of Windows 7 and Windows Vista.

Heuristics engine

Proactively finds malware undetectable with normal definitions and virus signatures.

Code emulator

Uses dynamic translation (a method much faster than traditional emulation) for both generic unpacking and within the heuristics engine.

Automatic processing

Infected files are processed automatically, without requiring user instructions.

Smart virus definition updates

Incremental updating minimizes the size of regular update files.

Fast application of updates

New format for the virus definition file means faster updates and reduces demand on CPU/memory, for uninterrupted computing.

Multi-threaded scanning optimization

Allows the splitting of large files between cores, which accelerates the scanning process on new multi-core CPUs and makes avast! run even faster.

Wake-up/Scheduled scanning

Schedule scanning at night or whenever you don’t need to use your PC.

Command-line scanner avast! Pro Antivirus and Internet Security only

Runs a scan directly from the command line.
