I've never seen any evidence of a behaviour blocker in Avira.
I won't bash them too much on their anti-ransomware protection because as we've seen plenty of times products that claim to protect against ransomware fail spectacularly.
According to Avira it exists:
Q&A - Avira Behaviour Blocker?
Maybe it's just terrible. Who knows.
I don't believe it too. I don't see nay BB or antiransomware module in Avira
perhaps they implement something on their cloud only for paid versions? free version's cloud probably lacks something
I don't know if they have a license for metascan 8, 12, 16 or 20 engines to improve the detection rate on the cloud like zemana does
we don't know
I wouldn't doubt they have a anti-ransomware module but I'm betting it's just not very effective. Never seen any kind of behavioural detection by Avira though.
According to them it's the same cloud scanning for both free and paid versions.
As far as I'm aware it's just their own technology powering their cloud analysis. Never seen or heard any mentions of multiple engines.
Regardless, even if it does have all this technology built in it doesn't really matter if Avira doesn't do a good job at protecting its consumers. It's signatures are obviously good and its cloud scanning is decent but the fact that its mechanistic protections are almost non-existent stops me from recommending it.
They're not exposed - and therefore not as apparent - as is the case with other security softs.
They're not at the same level as other security softs - like Emsisoft's behavior blocker or Kaspersky System Watcher - but they are there.
Avira cloud query is invoked only when files meeting certain criteria are first executed.
For the criteria ask Avira - as I don't know specifically what all the criteria are.
Oops ... maybe you need to improve "a little something" in the technologies they're using.
