AVG Internet Security 2013 review
29 January 2013
Summary: AVG Internet Security 2013 is a perfectly respectable antivirus program with a great new top-level user interface. But that's the problem - in these malware tests, perfectly respectable doesn't quite cut it, and we saw several programs that outdid AVG at nearly every turn.
Conclusion: AVG Internet Security 2013 offers the same powerful protection as AVG's free antivirus solution and its spam filter is better than almost any competing suite. I just don't see that it offers enough beyond what you get in the free antivirus to merit its price.
Pros: High scores in PCMag's antivirus tests. Good scores in independent lab tests. Active Do Not Track feature. Performance analysis. Online shield blocks dangerous sites. AVG Accelerator for downloads and streaming. Simplified firewall. Extremely accurate spam filter.
Cons: Much trouble installing on malware-infested systems. Fixing performance problems requires separate purchase. Firewall can be disabled. Doesn't protect against exploits or very-new phishing sites. Slowed boot time and browsing in performance tests.
Excerpt: Internet security, viruses, trojans, spyware, malware. We hear these terms on a regular basis and most of the time it is terrible news that usually results in frustration and in some cases a costly bill. Today we are taking a quick look at a new internet security suite meant to protect PCs from these security threats.
Summary: Aimed at protecting up to 200 networked systems, Internet Security Business Edition 2013 (ISBE2013) takes everything AVG has to offer and amalgamates it into a centrally managed package. Most users will have come across AVG’s free consumer antivirus software; this package adds anti-spam and email scanning for workstations and Microsoft Exchange Server 2007/2010, web security, identity protection, a client firewall and support for SharePoint servers.
Summary: AVG Internet Security 2013 scorer høje resultater i diverse uafhængige virus-test. Modulerne virker upåklageligt og programmet bruger få systemressourcer. Derudover er det tilknyttede spamfilter ekstremt effektivt.
