    "Decent Anti-Virus, No Firewall (Just Windows Firewall)"

    September 03, 2014   |   By Deathswalk

    Version: Avira Internet Security Suite 14.0.0.383

    Pros

    Does not impact system performance too much.
    Antivirus protection is quite decent in detecting threats.
    Protects host files from being changed.
    Lightweight.

    Cons

    Constantly popped up that host files were being changed. I just disabled the notification in the settings.
    Much slower full scan times (Avira: 1H 45m, others avg. 1H 5m) on a 500GB hard drive on my laptop.
    Doesn't have a firewall. Instead uses Windows Firewall.

    Summary

    I'd first like to address the firewall. There is actually no firewall built into Avira. When you go to the firewall to configure it, it will actually open Windows Firewall. I don't care much for Microsoft's firewall.
    Avira doesn't impact the system too much, unlike Comodo which can get really slow. There is NO hidden software in installation that you have to be careful in unchecking boxes and going through custom installations. Takes about an extra 35 seconds to do a full restart and have the system fully ready. By comparison Comodo takes on average 45 seconds extra overhead, Bitdefender was on par with ~36 seconds, and Avast had 25 seconds. (All data comes from Soluto where I'd derive the average across three resets)
    Doing a full scan took much longer than many other AVs like Bitdefender, Avast, etc. Took an hour 45 minutes compared to BD's 1H 7m and Avast's 1H 1m.

    Overall, I'd say not have a firewall built in does not make it worth the cost. I noticed that when I installed it, it labeled it as "Antivirus Pro" when I know I went to the internet security page to download it. I had to add the Internet security suite after the face.The big difference is that it comes with file encryption, but you can just use Truecrypt. If you look on Avira's main page comparing products you will notice that they do not have any mention of a firewall because they do not have it anymore.

    Pros

    Defrauding its PAYING customers of the firewall seem to be in line with NSA's way of doing business with tech companies to get more spy data as ever. spiegel <dot> de/international/germany/gchq-and-nsa-targeted-private-german-companies-a-961444 <dot> html

    "Avira Program Is A Disappointment"

    March 13, 2014   |   By Makazestorm

    Version: Avira Internet Security Suite 14.0.0.383

    Pros

    It has good detection and protection. It has considerable fast scans and you dont have to worry about getting infected. Keeps your mind at ease in a dangerous internet world. Which it should do for you as a internet security suite.

    Cons

    Unfortuently and the reason they lost a customer is they decided for some reason to replace the avira firewall which was damn good and told us to use the windows firewall instead and neglected to inform us.

    Summary

    Avira has kept me safe for years and I had peace of mind until now. They removed the avira firewall in favor of the windows firewall. Which can leave you with unsafe results. They have lost me as a customer for this.

    "WHat were they thinking?!"

    December 12, 2013   |   By potitoman

    Version: Avira Internet Security Suite 14.0.0.383

    Pros

    Good antivirus, easy interface, game mode and not too bad on system resources.

    Cons

    THERE IS NO FIREWALL! An internet security suite with no firewall. Let's make a house with doors or windows while we're at it.

    Summary

    Avira has removed it's firewall from the bundle and now what you get is basically the functionality of the antivirus suite but $20(AUD) more expensive. The only thing that differentiates it from the antivirus suite, it's the inclusion of a fairly ineffective parental control module.

    I was a big fan of Avira. Good performance, good detection rate and a good firewall which was easy to use and gave you good control over network traffic. What made them think that replacing the firewall with Window's built in one is completely beyond me.
    If you need an antivirus, save yourself $20 and buy the antivirus suite. If you need an internet security suite, look elsewhere.

    September 27, 2012   |   By spnut10951

    Version: Avira Internet Security 2013 13.0.0.2681

    Pros

    Can't believe they released there new version and its not compatible with windows 8 can't test it looks like they will be slow at evolving from this matter at hand.

    Cons

    Not compatible with windows 8

    Summary

    Overall good anti virus but this version should have been compatible with windows 8 as it is less then a month away for the release and they should be studying new threats now to be ready for the full release disappointed use viper internet security 2013 its fully compatible with windows 8 and has a high detection rate for the latest treats.
