What does Avira do in order to effectively stop viruses?


Avira uses a multi-layered process in order to stop viruses. The most important part of Avira’s antivirus program is our patented ProTAG engine. ProTAG is a heuristic scanner that scans each individual email for new viruses. Using intricately programmed rules, ProTAG is capable of recognizing new types of viruses based on their behavior. With each newly discovered virus, the ProTAG scanner creates further rules and learns in real-time. That’s why Avira’s anti-virus software is among the most advanced solutions on the market.
