Windows 10 users need to have more antivirus protection than Defender offers. Avast runs in parallel to give you the highest level of security.Using the right tool makes all the difference. Everyone knows that you need the right tool to do a job. When you cut down a tree, you don’t use a butter knife, you use a chainsaw. It you want to win a Formula 1 race, you don’t drive a riding lawnmower.
The same rule applies to your PC’s security.
You can’t go up against today’s online threats without the best protection. That’s why Windows 10 users need to install strong antivirus software to run in parallel with Microsoft’s pre-installed antivirus, Defender.
Avast Free Antivirus provides significantly stronger protection than Windows Defender. By combining machine learning with massive data engines such as DeepScreen and Evo-gen with some of the smartest virus spotters in the world, we constantly double and triple check the latest threats to keep you safe. Avast users receive more than 200 streaming updates a day to keep them ahead of hackers. Windows Defender sends out 2 updates per day.
