Located in Tettnang, near Lake Constance, Avira is one of the biggest regional enterprises. The company has several locations in Germany and partnerships in Europe, Asia and the Americas. Dozens of researchers in various virus labs attend to local and global malware threats around the clock. Numerous awards have acknowledged these efforts, including Virus Bulletin’s VB 100 and the Advanced+ rating from AV Comparatives.
In addition to intelligent technologies, Avira offers solution-oriented advice and individual support from our own experts. Protection of users with Avira Free Antivirus represents a significant contribution to security and a further additional firewall for corporate networks.
Awards and certifications of the Avira products and partnerships with corporations underline the efficiency and core competencies of the company. Security solutions from Avira are in demand worldwide and immediately available locally via trained, authorized partners.
Distributed all over the world, many integration partners directly implement the Avira scan engine, SAVAPI, in their OEM products. SAVAPI and the underlying scanning technology are characterized by cross-platform and processor-independent programming. This includes use with Windows and Linux as well as on Intel and non-Intel processors. Thanks to the use of resource-saving programming technologies, Avira products have low RAM requirements.
Avira constantly adapts to the changing security requirements of its users. For example, Avira created one of the world’s first ever products with dialer detection. This dialer detection was very quickly followed by the detection and removal of adware and spyware. Current developments in this field include the detection of already active rootkits. The introduction of a firewall and behavior blockers was a matter of course. In-house development also fosters the development of various new special scanning technologies, for example for PDAs, handhelds and embedded devices.
Avira’s national and international customers include not only renowned corporations listed on the stock exchange but also educational institutions and public authorities. In addition to protecting the virtual environment, Avira also provides for more protection and security in the real world by supporting the Auerbach Foundation. Established by the founder of the company, the Auerbach Foundation promotes charitable and social projects as well as the arts, culture and science.
