avast's premier security suite is more powerful than ever

Avast! Premier 2015 is the company's premium security suite, and includes an antivirus engine, firewall, browsing protection and browser cleanup tool.

The suite builds on Avast Internet Security with an automated software update tool, which can not only alert you to new updates, but download and install them as well.

Another big extra is a military-grade data shredder, which can wipe important files, documents and other personal data, and ensure there's no chance they can be recovered.

AccessAnywhere is the other premium feature, and allows you to access your PC over the internet.

Installation is simple and straightforward. Compatibility seems good, too, with the package running happily alongside Norton Internet Security on our test PC.

The program interface is clean and very easy to use. Just click "Smart Scan" and the suite immediately runs a quick check for malware. But it now also scans for missing software updates, runs a new Home Security Network Check (wifi status, weak router passwords etc), and even looks for junk files and poorly configured Windows settings.

If you're in a hurry then you can click "Resolve all" and leave the program to sort out the details.

But if you need more control then Avast! Premier 2015 has plenty to offer. For example, the antivirus engine can check individual files, folders, removable media, commonly infected areas of your PC or the entire system. If that's not enough, you're able to create your own custom scan type by tweaking 30+ settings. And this can be scheduled to run at boot time, daily, weekly, monthly - whenever you like.

The 2015 edition adds SecureDNS to protect you from DNS hijacking, including wifi hotspots and unsecured networks in general.

New support for scanning TLS/SSL protected traffic will detect threats even on HTTPS connections.

Avast DeepScreen now uses hardware virtualisation to run processes in standalone virtual machines, completely isolated from the rest of your system, improving security and detection (you'll need hardware virtualisation to be supported and enabled, of course).

Help has moved completely online, where it's both more complete and more up-to-date.

Avast 2015 R2 SP2 includes these changes:

- Faster start after reboot. Some components are loaded later.
- File System Shield. Solved incompatibility with TrueCrypt.
- File System Shield. Exclusions work again.
- Added option to install Skype during Avast installation.
- StreamFilter. Improved compatibility with other AV products.

Verdict:

Avast Premier 2015 is a versatile, easy-to-use and configurable security suite. Avast Internet Security 2015 is almost as capable, security-wise, though - it's just missing the automated software updating, data shredder and remote access modules - and could be a better choice for many users.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
