Avira Internet Security suite is better than Avira antivirus software because, this Internet Security suite includes all the features of the antivirus and additional tools to protect your PC from more advanced threats. Avira scored impressive rankings from an independent testing agency AV-Test.

Avira works based on the active-cloud technology which makes it advanced and capable to handle everyday Internet threats. The firewall can be configured as per the user’s convenience. This feature would be pleasing very few though. Most of the vendors seem to figure it out themselves.

User Interface is simple enough to put the beginners at ease. The Home Window presents all key attributes to know the system health at a glance.

Avira Internet Security suite in packed with useful features. Browser tracking blocker stops any party on the Internet from recording your credentials. Website Safety adviser highlights harmful links before you click ‘GO’.

There is no denying that new Avira Internet Security has attractive features. However, the security suite may engage more system resources than negligible. In the matter of malware protection, the performance tested to be above average. However, the impact on the system after installing the suite does not go unnoticed. In addition, Avira has a built-in “System Speedup” tool to improve the performance of your PC.

The help and support is provided by the technical staff 24/7 through telephone and e-mail.


Avira Internet Security does a commendable job in protecting your PC. The rich set of features proves its worth. However, the software appears to leave a bigger footprint, thereby slowing down your PC. Advanced options like File encryption and disk wiping are not available in this suite. If you can bear with a slower system for a decent security suite, we recommended Avira Internet Security to you.
