Avira Ultimate Protection Suite Editor's Review

With time the importance of PC security has gone up by leaps and bounds. Earlier, people used to rely on standalone antivirus software. However, security conscious users prefer having a more robust form of protection. They opt for Internet Security suites or Security suites with additional features. These suites cost more than general anti malware suites but they come with enough bells and whistles to keep advanced users satisfied. Avira, a well-known name in PC security segment has released its top notch security software offering in form of Avira Ultimate Protection Suite.

The software can be installed on PCs with Windows XP SP3 and later editions. It is not particularly resource hungry. However, your PC should have .NET 3.5 Framework installed for it to run.

Avira Ultimate Protection Suite has a sleek and well laid out UI with familiar red and white color scheme. The main components of the suite are listed vertically at the left side of the pane. The home screen shows protection status of web and system with icons. There are plenty of options but actually it is not difficult to figure out.

The antivirus component of Avira Ultimate Protection Suite does a nice job of protecting your PC from various types of malware and worm. Its malware detection rate is excellent and beats some of top players. However, its prowess in blocking malware is less stellar. In independent virus testing lab assessment it scores very well. There is a dedicated game mode that eliminates notifications from the app.

Avira has a Web protection module that succeeds in blocking malware-hosting websites well. However, the same module scores average in anti-phishing segment. Like several other category contenders, the app has a module to safeguard social media profiles from malware and other risks. It s named Avira Social Shield. There is a browser toolbar component to safeguard online searches.

When it comes to scanning the computer, Avira Ultimate Protection Suite offers you plenty of customization options. It scans boot sectors, Windows registry, and System file integrity. Rootkit scanning is also available. Like many present generation security suites, it comes with heuristic scanning technology. In fact, Avira offers you two forms of heuristic scanning.

Parents who have tech savvy kids are often worried about the son or daughter’s online activities. Willingly or otherwise those young users can get trapped by online loopholes set by hackers and malicious lot. Avira's parental control module ‘Safe Browsing’ is decent but it does not offer comprehensive protection. It lets you block access to websites with indecent content and set internet usage time. The good thing is that content filtering is browser-independent. The time scheduler can easily be fooled by resetting system clock, which is a dampener.

Avira Ultimate Protection Suite does not pack in a separate firewall segment but it uses Windows default firewall. There is no separate spam filter component in the suite either. Avira does check for emails for malware though.

When you buy a license for Avira Ultimate Protection suite, you get a utility named Avira System Speedup. It is like many other standalone system cleanup tools that help you eradicate junk files from the HDD and OS. You can use the startup optimizer to speed up Windows booting. There is a disk doctor feature in it which can be used to check for disk errors. There is a file shredder and uninstaller as well.

Avira Secure backup can be used for free with a quota limit of 5 GB by anyone. If you buy Avira Ultimate Protection suite, you get a whopping 200 GB storage limit in the clouds. It should be good enough for business users too. In this segment, Avira trounces the competition. The default file size limit for backup is 200 MB but you can alter it. The backup integrates with Windows shell right click menu. The Avira Dashboard lets you download backed up data from other computers. Backup file versioning is supported by the app. One downer is you cannot download multiple files at once. There is no file syncing feature in Avira back up.

Avira Ultimate Protection Suite does not affect PC performance significantly. However, it does take a toll on boot up time of your PC. The company offers email and phone based support for customers.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, intuitive UI.
•    Excellent malware detection.
•    Feature rich System Speedup component.
•    Low impact on PC performance.

Negative Points:
•    No separate firewall.
•    Average anti -phishing score.
•    No spam filter.
•    Basic parental controls.

Conclusion:
Avira Ultimate Protection Suite comes with a core anti malware engine that puts up good performance and there are many additional features to keep geeks happy. However, it does miss out on some key requirements at the same time. The web protection blocks majority of malicious websites. However, in phishing website detection and blocking, the app scores average. Absence of a separate firewall and spam filter in such a top notch product is simply baffling. The parental controls are rudimentary and internet time scheduler can be overridden with system clock reset. The massive online backup and System Speedup works in its favor though.

Rating:4/5
