AVG safeguards you from accidentally opening infected files by placing them in quarantine. The antivirus intelligently collects data on new threats by harnessing the power of its giant user base and their PCs - but you can opt out of this feature if you want to. When AVG recognizes a problem quite often a Fix button will appear on your computer screen. If you give approval then AVG will attempt to correct the problem swiftly. AVG waits until your computer is not being used before it begins its scans to reduce hogging up resources. It is smart enough to ignore files that it has already approved. It has a game mode feature to ease your apprehension that a game will be interrupted by a scan. The Deep Scan feature is very unique. Deep Scan will run a new Boot-Time scan to discover potential threats before Windows starts.
ZoneAlarm checks any suspicious files against a cloud database to ensure that even the latest threats are not missed. The ZoneAlarm cloud contains the newest antivirus signatures and definitions. A two-way firewall proactively monitors inbound and outbound traffic for hackers. Automatic Wireless Network Security addresses your wireless network settings and automatically applies the most secure firewall protection settings available. ZoneAlarm takes steps to prevent phishing by providing an official Chrome Extension to monitor phishing. The Extreme Security product has a 100% virus free guarantee.

Another great feature is free business technical support is included. Remote management is built-in as well. The AVG Business Edition is the next level up. The mid-level product can leverage the cloud to assist in protecting against threats. Also this version includes things like a firewall and email scanning.
