In this article, we will identify the main differences between the two versions of Avast antivirus and take a closer look at each of them.
Main difference between Avast Premier and Ultimate
Avast Premier and Avast Ultimate are two advanced comprehensive antivirus packages that include all the features of previous versions. Their main difference is that Avast Ultimate still has more advanced features and includes Cleanup Premium and SecureLine VPN.
Next, we will take a closer look at each of these versions, their features, and functions.
Avast Premier review
Avast Premier is a reliable comprehensive package from Avast which, in addition to the standard antivirus functions, also has a couple of additional ones. But as mentioned earlier, not all security features are unlocked in this antivirus.
So what are the features of this antivirus?
- Ransomware Shield
This component monitors applications and records all attempts to access files in protected folders. The way this module works is that it uses a cloud-based database of verified and secure applications. If Avast Premier detects an unknown application, it asks the user for permission to block access.
If you run the program yourself and you’re confident that it’s safe, just allow access. If you haven’t, then it’s a good reason to block the application and check your system for viruses right away.
- Powerful file shredder
Surely the recycle garbage can feature on your PC has saved you from losing an important document more than once. But what if, on the contrary, you need to delete something without a trace?
Avast File Shredder is the right tool for just such a case. When you activate this feature, the program starts overwriting the file with a different set of bytes so that it will be impossible to recover them.
- Improved Software Updater
Hacking often happens because of vulnerabilities in our defense system. Avast’s Software Updater is designed to let users know when they need to update their browsers or applications.
Avast Ultimate review
Avast Ultimate offers all the features you need to keep your PC safe:
- Powerful antivirus
- Advanced VPN service
- Updated cleaning tool
- Functional password manager
Avast Ultimate is a comprehensive antivirus package, so in addition to Avast Premier, it also includes Avast Cleanup Premium and Avast SecureLine VPN.
