  • Helps integrate security when standard antivirus products are not suitable
    SAVAPI is the interface to Avira‘s core technologies for integrations with software and hardware products (e.g. web services, mail and web gateways, security appliances, client/sever applications).

    Asian, Russian and other non-Roman character encodings are fully compatible with SAVAPI.

    • Internal integrity and validity checks of product binaries as well as the signatures and engine files
    • Supervisor process to monitor the SAVAPI process

    SAVAPI gives products access to the award-winning Avira engine, the core of malware detection and removal used in all Avira products. It provides protection against a wide array of malware, including viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware and adware.
