Avast Premium Security is “the” latest variant of premium security suite by Avast Software. By the end of 2019 Avast Software's (1) Avast Pro Antivirus, (2) Avast Internet Security, and (3) Avast Premier will be upgraded to Avast Premium Security. Avast Premium Security has been improved with a comprehensive / complete range of security and features the user can conveniently relax with the assurance that he will stay protected at all fronts. Avast Software has streamlined Avast Premium Security under 3 main aspects of PC protection, (1) Protection, (2) Privacy, and (3) Convenience

1. Protection

The core shields (File System Shield, Web Shield and Mail Shield) are the main layer of active protection in Avast Antivirus. It scans programs and files saved on your PC for malicious threats in real-time before allowing them to be opened, run, modified, or saved. If malware is detected, File System Shield prevents the program or file from infecting your PC. The Web Shield scans the data that is transferred when the user browses the internet in real-time to prevent malware, such as malicious scripts from being downloaded and run on the user's system. Avast's Web Shield technology scans HTTPS sites for malware and other dangers without any man-in-the-middle (MITM) methods and offers the strongest HTTPS security without having to sacrifice convenience by verifying website certificates rather than replacing them. HTTPS scanning detects and decrypts TLS/SSL-protected traffic. Mail Shield scans the user's incoming and outgoing email messages for malicious content. Scanning applies only to messages sent or received suing the mail management software (email clients such as Outlook, Mozilla's Thunderbird and the like). 

Smart Scan
Avast's Smart Scan lets users scan for a plethora of issues with one click and to discover features that could further improve their PC. It is a comprehensive scan that detects malware, outdated software, bad browser add-ons, network threats, performance issues, and weak or compromised passwords at the same time. To speed up the scanning process, Smart Scan combines all scanning (for viruses, software updates, network problems, new features and performance issues) into one concentrated scan.  Once completed, it shows the itemized results and, if there are any issues, offers tools and suggestions to fix them. 

Behavior Shield
The Behavior Shield is an additional layer of active protection in Avast Premium Security. It monitors all processes on the user's PC in real-time for suspicious behavior that may indicate the presence of malicious code. Behavior Shield works by detecting and blocking the suspicious files based on their similarity to other known threats, even if the files are not yet added to the virus definitions database. By default, it is configured to provide optimal protection when switched "on". It is strongly recommended that this shield be kept "on" always and only make configuration changes if the user has advanced understanding of malware protection principles. 

Avast’s CyberCapture technology is one of our newest proprietary features that allows us to detect unknown files that might be a threat and analyze them in real-time. Whereas older technology ran locally on the user’s PC, CyberCapture runs in the cloud to provide zero-second protection, detecting unrecognized files quickly. At its core, CyberCapture is a cloud-based smart file scanner. Rather than relying on the latest definition updates, CyberCapture isolates unknown files in a safe environment and automatically establishes a two-way communication channel with the Avast Threat Labs. This allows for immediate analysis, providing a first-response line of defense against new, never before reported threats.

To analyze the file, Avast clears away all the false code and misdirection that malware creators use to mask malware’s true intentions. By peeling away layers of obfuscated code, CyberCapture is able to observe the binary level commands inside malware and better understand the instructions hidden there. While CyberCapture is analyzing, a user can run the file before CyberCapture has finished; however, we strongly recommend against this. Once a file has been analyzed, Avast tells the user whether the file is safe or dangerous.

The Avast Firewall, offers better outbound protection and configurability than Windows, while remaining nicely invisible to the user. The silent Firewall also uses crowd-sourced data from our 400 million global users to identify what file types and applications are whitelisted, even those from remote corners of the world. The Avast Firewall monitors all network traffic between your PC and the outside world to protect you from unauthorized communication and intrusions. This feature is designed to require minimal input from you. To ensure you are protected, all you need to do is keep Firewall enabled and, when prompted, select the appropriate Firewall profile for each network you connect to.

Ransomware Shield 
Avast's Ransomware Shield secures the user's personal photos, documents, and files from being modified, deleted, or encrypted by ransomware attacks. This feature scans for and automatically secures folders which may contain personal data and allows the user to specify which other folders he wants to protect from untrusted applications. Additionally, he (the user) can specify which applications are allowed to modify the files in your folders and which applications are always blocked. Ransomware Shield monitors all processes on the user's PC in real-time for suspicious behavior that may indicate the presence of malicious code. Behavior Shield works by detecting and blocking the suspicious files based on their similarity to other known threats, even if the files are not yet added to the virus definitions database. 

Real Site
The Real Site is a feature that protects the user from DNS (Domain Name System) hijacking to ensure that he (the user) access the "actual-real site" that he wants to visit. DNS hijacking is an attack that redirects the user from the site that he wants to visit to one that is fake. This type of attack is dangerous when used with banking and shopping websites. Avast's Real Site provides an encrypted connection between the user's web browser and Avast’s own DNS server to prevent hijacking. Real Site (previously called Secure DNS) is available in all of Avast’s paid antivirus products to encrypt the traffic between an Avast-protected device and our DNS server. This way, users can relax knowing that they’ll always go to the right destination every time.

2. Privacy

Wi-Fi Inspector
Avast's Wi-Fi Inspector sports a new, sleeker look making it easier to use. This feature identifies weak passwords, vulnerable routers, compromised Internet connections, and enabled, but not protected, IPv6. It lists all the devices on the network so users can make sure that only trusted devices are connected. If an issue is found, we’ll offer solutions for how to fix it to keep you safe on both public and private networks. This proactive approach to security highlights our ongoing commitment to provide users with 360 degrees of protection that extends beyond the device to the user's Wi-Fi landscape, both now and in the future. 

Webcam Shield
The Webcam Shield prevents applications and malware from accessing the user's webcam without your consent. With Webcam Shield enabled, untrusted applications cannot capture images or videos and send the content outside of the user's PC to compromise your privacy. Webcam Shield is enabled by default. To disable this feature, click the green ON slider so that it changes to red and displays the text OFF. Avast recommends keeping Webcam Shield enabled at all times. 

Sensitive Data Shield
Sensitive Data Shield provides an extra layer of spyware protection, beyond what the free antivirus offers. Using advanced algorithms, it scans your computer for documents containing names, addresses, phone numbers, and other data it thinks you’d want to keep private. If it finds any, it will offer to seal them off from unknown apps and spyware. There’s no need to move your files or hide them in a secret folder, either. Sensitive Data Shield keeps everything right where you left it, and protects it all automatically. With Sensitive Data Shield, only trusted apps (e.g., Adobe Reader, Microsoft Word, etc.) can access or copy your private documents. Anything else is automatically blocked — unless you approve.

Data Shredder
Avast's Data Shredder allows the user to irreversibly erase his files or whole drives, so that there is no way for anyone to restore and misuse your data. When a user erases a hard drive, or delete a file using standard tools, only a reference to its data is removed from the file system. Simply deleting sensitive files, such as user data or licensed software, may not be safe as there are tools capable of restoring deleted files. Data Shredder overwrites files with meaningless data multiple times before deleting them, which prevents data from being recovered. Data Shredder is especially useful when selling or donating your computers and hard drives.

3. Convenience

Rescue Disk
Avast allows the creation of a Rescue Disk which is a version of the user's Avast Installation and save it to a CD or USB. This is a convenient way of "rescue" when a user's PC becomes so infected that it can’t even run Avast properly. This "disk version" will be ready for use by the owner to give their PC a clean reboot and restore functionality out rightly. The Rescue Disk on Windows PE (pre-installation environment) allows users to boot a PC even there is no "functioning" OS. 

Do Not Disturb Mode
The "Do Not Disturb Mode" works to silence unnecessary notifications while the user runs almost any application in fullscreen. Each time the user opens an application in fullscreen mode, Do Not Disturb Mode automatically detects it and adds it to the list of applications. Do Not Disturb Mode automatically launch to silence notifications from Windows, Avast Antivirus, and other application. 

Automatic Software Updater
Software updates can be a real hassle, as they interrupt work and disrupt system functions. Because they can be so annoying, many users postpone installing them, which leaves their devices vulnerable. Many PC users are not aware that cybercriminals take advantage of vulnerabilities in outdated, commonly used software such as browsers, Flash Player, Skype, and other programs. Through security flaws, hackers can access a user’s system to install malware like spyware and adware, which can affect performance and, perhaps most importantly, lead to identity theft. Therefore, it is important to keep software updated. Avast makes this chore much easier with “Software Updater”. Helping users update faster than ever, Avast lists all the out-of-date programs and applications on the device and allows users to update them with a single, convenient click. 

Current stable build is Avast version 19.8.4793.0 (September 2019)
