About avast! 6.0: video interview with Ondřej Vlček, CTO at AVAST Software

Recently we took pleasure in hosting journalists at our Prague HQ. Among them were Wojciech Kowasz and Jakub Pawlak from dobreprogramy, Poland‘s most popular download site. avast! Free Antivirus is Poland‘s top downloaded software, with over 14,000,000 downloads!

While visiting us in Prague, Mr. Kowasz and Mr. Pawlak recorded a video interview with our CTO, Ondřej Vlček. Mr. Vlček introduced new features of avast! 6.0, explaining how they differentiate avast! from other AV products. If you’ve ever wondered how the AutoSandbox works, what SafeZone is, or how can you rate a website using avast! WebRep, check it out. Mr. Kowasz and Mr. Pawlak also asked about everyday’s life in our HQ in Prague, how the virus lab works, and how we detect viruses.

Last but not least, Mr. Vlček stressed the huge role and involvement of the avast! Community. On one hand, avast! users help us increase our detection rate via CommunityIQ technology. On the other, the Community provides us and other users with their opinions about shopping, news, and other websites, rating it through avast! Webrep.
