Avira Exchange Security overview

What is Avira Exchange Security?

Avira Exchange Security offers a complete cloud-based email protection solution to meet the security needs of individuals and businesses across industries. Unlike in-house email filtering, Avira directs the entire email traffic to Avira Exchange Security servers where each email is scanned for spam, malware, virus or other harmful content. Harmful content is then removed and quarantined before the email is forwarded to the users’ email account.

Avira Exchange Security is based on Bayesian filtering technology which inspects complete email traffic for telltale character and word combinations to eliminate any suspicious emails before delivery to the user’s network. The product examines the structure and header of emails for signs of viruses, spam, phishing and other threats while the message body is scanned for malicious content.

Avira Exchange Security's solution supports advanced greylisting features to flag new spammers based on the behavior analysis on their first attempt. They're then added to an antispam blacklist, protecting users from daily threats. The bandwidth saving feature helps in optimizing user networks by scheduling bulk emails at a certain business time or blocking heavy attachments from entering into users' networks.

Avira Exchange Security offers an intuitive web interface from where users can manage settings, view statistics, generate reports and more. Users can control attachments by permitting defined file types and restricting others to avoid unnecessary emails. It also allows the personalization of mail bodies with email signatures, auto-replies, and disclaimers in an email. Users can get daily reports of quarantined or blocked emails via email.

Review Source: GetApp

Free version of product is good and enough for PC protection. If you want to have more options you can upgrade it to the Pro version for money.

Pros
I used many different antivirus solutions for my PC. What I found the best about Avira: it is easy to set up and to use, it is free and it is reliable.

Cons
Options for browser protection are limited, it protects only Chrom and Firefox. For me it is ok since I mainly use Chrom. Can be a problem for people who prefer other web-browser.

Pros
I have been using avira for quite some time now, and I have installed it on several laptops (my own and friends') and it has always worked quite well. As advantages I can say that: 1.- Its installation process is quite simple. 2.- It can be installed in a mid-range computer without any problem since it usually does not use so many resources, except when it is being updated. 3.- Its analysis system is quite fast and it has always worked well for me to be able to clean pendrives, HH and my own laptop from dangerous elements. 4.- Avira gives you control over your system allowing you to enable or disable some extra functions that allow you to provide a higher level of protection (safe shopping, home guard, vpn, password manager, among others) 5.- It has a help system to improve the speed and stability of the system 6.- It provides a vpn to be able to navigate in a safe way and avoid so that the sites track your data. 7.- And obviously you can enable the blocking function of pages potentially unsafe or harmful to the system.

Cons
although, I usually recommend avira, I always clarify something very important, and that is that the real-time detection system is somewhat deficient, so it does not always manage to recognize or block all the threats that swarm through the web and much less the threats that can be downloaded. If you are one of the users who browse all the sites and download a thousand things without knowing the real origin, maybe you should look for a much more powerful antivirus that detects everything and has an advanced heuristic function.

Pros
The product offers a free coverage that's amazing for average user. They also offer deeper coverage features for those who need greater measure of security or peace of mind. We've used this for years and have never had one single device affected by a malware or virus that caused any known issues.

Cons
I wish there were tutorial videos for each optional feature before you choose or enable them so that you know what it does and why you need it. I think for the average consumer this would be so informational.

Pros
Avira have several advantages: 1.- You can choose between a free version with enough functionality or a paid version with even more features than the free version. 2.- The installation is quick and easy to carry out. 3.- You do not need a pc with the latest components of the market to be able to use avira. Avira consumes few resources from your PC, both in the installation, update process, analysis process and in real time protection. 4.- In my case, avira works very well. It allows me to detect suspicious files in downloaded items from the web, and also detects possible risks or attempts of infection when I surf the Internet through forums and some pages of movies.

Cons
Avira has some disadvantages: 1.- It is not as powerful as other antivirus, for example kaspersky. So it can present some problems of detection of malicious files, but if you browse the Internet carefully you should not have a bigger problem. 2.- I have read from users who have some problems when they have to uninstall the application, but so far I have not had any problems.
