Cloud based Web Seurity/Shield
« on: July 18, 2015, 01:27:04 PM »
One component I really like about Avast is it's web-shield, and is doing a good job at securing desktops/laptops from ever-growing malware attacks.

With cloud computing on the rise; vendor like McAfee, Symantec etc. are offering the same capabilities without any software installation i.e. via proxy configuration in browser. Thus, it would be great if Avast also offer same web shield functionality via proxy configuration rather than as a software installation. It not only secures the user web traffic but uses less system resources.

But it will not protect you from malicious things in a lan or through a vpn.
