AVIRA is a German anti- virus/security software company with a subsidiary set-up in Malaysia.
Its main product, the Avira Premium Security Suite, like other anti-virus software in the market, promises to protect users from bad stuff prevalent in the online world.
Avira is a newbie compared to the likes of Norton, McAfee and Kapersky, even if it claims to have 200,000 users in Singapore.
What Avira has going for it is the comparatively low price of its product. But then price should not be the primary focus for a user who ought to be more concerned about security.
The best way to find out is to try the product and assess if the protection regime, the update process and also the renewal messages (whether they are less annoying than those despatched relentlessly by some other anti-virus software makers) are acceptable.
If they are, go for it, never mind the branding.
How much: Avira Premium Security Suite plus Tune-Up Utilities bundle with five-user licence, from $35 onwards
