Will avast ever make a firewall to go with the antivirus???
« on: November 30, 2008, 08:15:23 PM »
Hi all,

just wondering if avast would ever be making a firewall to go along (seperately perhaps) with the excellent antivirus? Avast av with a firewall (either built in or seperately downloadable) would be an excellent addition to the existing products...

anyone at avast thought about this as it would probably make the antivirus even better (well, block the potential problems and then be able to make sure they didn't sneak in any other way with the antivirus!)

anyone else agree????

As a separate FW I hope. Not as a suite. Note Eset's luck with their suite.  ::)

It will be both: you will be able to use only the firewall, only the antivirus and both together as a suite.
