About us

Avast is one of the largest security companies in the world using next-gen technologies to fight cyber attacks in real time. We differ from other next-gen companies in that we have an immense cloud-based machine learning engine that receives a constant stream of data from our hundreds of millions of users, which facilitates learning at unprecedented speeds and makes our artificial intelligence engine smarter and faster than anyone else’s.

Avast has created a scalable cloud-based security infrastructure that sees everything that happens on the internet. We have a view into everything online, good and bad, giving us the unique advantage of being first to inspect and analyze potential threats. When new malware is discovered, we can quickly deploy new security features to protect our users.

Avast’s innovative security approach comes from some of the most talented and experienced security engineers on the planet. Headquartered in Prague – a center of excellence for engineering and computer science –we attract the best and the brightest with over 50% of our employees in R&D. Our scientists, engineers, and mathematicians are from some of the most highly respected institutions, including Stanford, MIT, Oxford, and NASA. Our growth is fueled by our passionate culture of wanting to win and “beat the bad guys.”
