Avast Internet Security

Avast Internet Security Review Summary

Avast is the largest Internet security provider in the world, protecting over 230 million people worldwide. Historically a cheap option for online security, Avast has used its large membership to grow into one of the top providers. While some are displeased with the price increase that came with the fast growth, it is important to look at the big picture of what you want from your Internet security provider; track record and experience.

The track record that Avast has paved for itself is one of market dominance. Best way to look at this is to compare them to Geico Insurance, one of America’s most popular provider who makes it easy to apply, easy to pay and offers a great product. Sure, brands like Esurance and Progressive may have better rates and grew from online roots, they can not compete with the long running track record that Geico has. Just like Geico, Avast has been in the game and knows how to deliver a great product at a competitive price. Avast has been in the game since the internet was essentially invented.

With this long-standing track record comes years of experience that separates Avast from much of the competition. The experience gained from monitoring 230 million people is something that no other company can match.
