Lavasoft Announces Release of the All New Ad-Aware 11

Lavasoft released Ad-Aware 11, a comprehensive redesign of its anti-malware software. Ad-Aware 11 gives consumers peace of mind while using their computers at work or at play by protecting their private data and securing their computer against all forms of online threats including viruses, spyware and adware. Ad-Aware Free Antivirus+ 11 builds upon BitDefender's antivirus with Lavasoft's anti-malware technology and expertise to deliver the best antivirus, both free and paid, on the market. The combined power of two powerful yet lean technologies delivers results that are superior to security products that, until now, were considered the leading anti-virus solutions. Some highlights from detection and protection tests (full test results listed here) include: Best real-time protection against new threats - Ad-Aware 11 had the higher protection rate missing four times fewer samples than avast! and less half the threats than AVG did. Best on-demand (scan) protection -- Ad-Aware 11 detected an impressive 99.35% of threats, missing five times fewer samples than avast! and less than 10x fewer samples than AVG. Eclipsed so-called 'second line of defense' anti-malware programs such as MalwareBytes who failed to detect 55x more prevalent and recent threats than Ad-Aware 11. Ad-Aware 11 now sports a redesigned user interface, is compatible with Windows 8.1 (as well as previous versions) and provides many advanced security features.
