An all-in-one protection tool for PCs, Macs and Android handsets that enables you to perform remote scans and monitor your devices from a single location
AVG Protection is a security toolkit designed for multiple platforms, namely Windows PCs, Macs and Android handsets.
It brings together different protection tools under the same roof, allowing you to efficiently safeguard all your devices against online threats, perform remote scans and manage all the computers or handsets from a single location, as far as security is concerned.
Free vs. Pro
The freeware version of the suite delivers essential protection tools everyone should have, comprisingAVG Antivirus Free, AVG AntiVirus for Android and AVG Antivirus for Mac, each available separately.
Optionally, you can try out the Pro version, which includes AVG AntiVirus Pro for Android and replaces AVG Antivirus Free with AVG Internet Security, bringing to the table advanced features such as a powerful personal firewall, an anti-spam module, download scanning functions, file encryption and password-protection options.
Perform remote scans and monitor all your devices
The top feature of AVG Protection is the AVG Zen dashboard, also available in the AVG Performance suite. This is a centralized interface that provides one-click access to all the configured devices belonging to the same Zen network, be it Windows PCs, Macs or Android handsets. Adding a new device to the network is easy, since the invitation is sent via email and the connection only requires an automatically generated code.
AVG Zen makes it possible for you to perform remote scans from any PC or handheld device. Thus, you will be able to check the security status of your home or office PC on the go and run virus analysis directly from an Android phone, for instance.
Basic antivirus protection
The protection tools are automatically installed upon launch, so you can open the AVG Antivirus Free directly from inside AVG Zen.
The antivirus delivers real-time protection against malware, be it viruses, spyware, trojans, rootkits and so on, while also comprising privacy protection, email and browsing safety tools. It scans each accessed link to ensure that it doesn’t redirect to a harmful site and thoroughly analyzes the behavior of installed software to detect possible infections.
Protect PCs, Macs and Android devices
AVG Protection can safeguard an unlimited number of devices, whether we are talking about Windows or Mac OS computers or Android devices. AVG Antivirus Free is designed to prevent viruses and other forms of malware from reaching your system, while AVG Zen makes remote scanning and centralized monitoring possible.
Alongside AVG Performance, AVG Protection becomes a reliable and robust security and performance optimization suite that covers multiple device types.
Note: You can activate the 30-day trial of the AVG Protection Pro version and try out advanced features, such as Online Shield, Data Safe, Anti-Spam, Enhanced Firewall and Priority Updates (additional features are available for the AVG AntiVirus for Android as well). To keep these features after the 30 days trial, you will have to purchase AVG Protection Pro.
