not this is hard to answer comparison, IMO, CIS is more effective against zero day infections and avast has better signatures.

and also avast IS is not free but CIS is!

In fact avast! has good generic signs but once a program goes into sandbox (althought malicious) it always let it go without detecting any malicious changes/things. I use CIS v6 but If CIS premium was a paid product I'm sure I'd use avast! free AV which is very efficient.

Let's talk now about the differences in the Comodo's and Avast's cloud :

Comodo's cloud :

-Automatic analysis of unknown apps by uplauding them to CIMA.
-Streaming updates
-Cloud based whitelist/Blacklist and TVL.

Avast's cloud :

-FileRep
-streaming updates.

Avast's cloud :

avast!'s Streaming Updates is to deploy emergency updates on definitions (i.e to fix a false positive etc) as opposed to be released in the general definitions updates schedule.

The sole cloud purpose is mainly the FileRep on avast which has a similar function as Comodo's cloud when it comes to suspicious and unknown files.

What follows next is the more questionable part, but in its core both function similarly, but adding the streaming updates to it will mislead any user. In fact, many users are still uncertain what are the core features of streaming updates in avast! and many disable such feature.

Thanks for clarification.
Also I want to add + CIMA : Comodo Valkyrie (http://valkyrie.comodo.com/).
I asked a dev he said integration coming soon but don't know if it's integration with CIS o_O.

I like both the products and since Avast will probably use Outpost firewall technology in next version, things might get interesting after that...but when it comes to free versus paid, free comes as a winner always :D

from my point of view you cannot and may not compare those products. comodo means security while avast means trying like hell to provide decent protection. but that`s only my opinion! please don`t through rocks at me!!! :D

Comodo focuses on prevention mainly with good technologies. Prevention being the strongest point.

avast! shifted from detection to a balance between detection and prevention, while the prevention side of things at its core work, they need quite some polishing.

Also it is to note that version 7 for both 7 and 8 users is causing problems constantly.

Comodo forums are helpful. avast! forums are questionable to say the least.

Bottom line: fair comparison between Comodo and avast! can be made as they both have IS components.

And honestly, the price doesn't matter but the program features.
