Looks like people at Avast are really busy these days. Just a few days they have released the updated beta of Avast 2017 and today Avast is releasing the first AVG 2017 product line since the acquisition in October 2016. In case you didn’t know Avast and AVG are the same company now.
As always with Avast and AVG, you can update to the latest version completely for free. If you are not interested in the update details, you can go directly to download links.
The brand new AVG 2017 is based on the Avast engine, but shares best of both. Following products have been released
- AVG AntiVirus FREE 2017 – basic free protection, an alternative to Avast Free Antivirus (see our Avast vs. AVG comparison review)
- AVG Internet Security 2017 – advanced premium protection for $69.99 a year, an alternative to Avast Internet Security
- AVG TuneUp 2017 – system cleaner and PC optimization tool for $49.99 a year, an alternative to Avast Cleanup
- AVG Ultimate – combination of AVG Internet Security and AVG TuneUp for $99.99 a year
What’s New in AVG AntiVirus 2017
As we mentioned the new AVG is running on the Avast engine and sharing the best out of both products. The full list of new features includes
- NEW Protection – Includes new real-time protection and online shield for the safe web surfing and e-mailing to protect you against the latest kinds of malware including ransomware
- NEW CyberCapture – New technology (introduced in Avast Nitro update) to protect you from the unknown (and potentially dangerous) files which are being analyzed in the cloud by the Avast Threat Labs experts
- NEW Pushed Updates – Pushed (real-time) updates are now delivered also to the free product (previously only to premium products)
- NEW Passive Mode – Allows to run AVG antivirus in a passive mode in parallel with other security products (like Avast)
- NEW User Interface – Brand new user interface for all products, really intuitive and easy to navigate
- NEW Secure DNS (premium only) – Checks website’s IP address to make sure it’s not faked and you are not giving your private or banking data to hackers
Unfortunately one thing which users are complaining the most about is AVG Zen, and that stays as it is. To get all these features you can update your AVG product using the user interface or by downloading the latest installer below.
