It is good for organizations that need an AV solution that does really well in AV detection/performance tests, and also has a good track record for using little system resources on the client machine.

It is less suited for organizations that want an AV product that is historically used by the industry or is known as an industry standard (e.g. Microsoft products, etc).

Avira works great if you're an average user (videos on YouTube, check FB, watch some forums, watch some movies online, play online). For more demanding users, who are dedicated to using more dangerous forums, download files from any side and do not analyze them before opening them, spend hours looking for crack programs, or connect any device to your PC (pendrive, HD) without reviewing them, it may work most of the time, but in the end it will have a flaw and allow some viruses to enter, since its protection system seems not to be as robust as other antivirus products.

Many times it takes time to update so if you have found an advanced virus will take time to recognize it is important that your automatic update is much more efficient so that no inconvenience occurs if this scenario occurs.

Avira Antivirus works well in the vast majority of scenarios where the user has a responsible use of browsing and downloading content from different websites. If you habitually use your laptop to navigate in secure pages (newspapers, YouTube, Facebook, mail, among others) and to download content from safe places or without too much risk, you should not have major problems, as it usually warns and blocks the self-downloading content of link shorteners and similar pages. It also warns about dangerous pages and those where the credentials were altered or where they have had recent reports of infections.
If instead, you are a user that jumps from one page to another, downloads files from anywhere, uses crack or patches for programs or games, well ... Avira will not be so useful, as it will eventually pass some malicious code and infect your PC. So if you are going to use your PC in that way, I recommend using a more powerful antivirus, but always remembering that no matter what antivirus you use, if you have risky behavior, at some point your PC will be attacked and your antivirus will not be able to do anything.

Avira is in general an antivirus that fulfills its basic functions in a good way, but without reaching an impenetrable strength. However, if you are a common and responsible user--who knows where you browse, does not download files from any side, scans a pendrive before opening it, does not open files of dubious origin--then without a doubt this a good antivirus for you, since it has a level of detection that's more than acceptable and a low impact on the use of resources of your PC. Now, if you like to download patches for your programs, download files from who knows where, and navigate more carelessly, I think you should look for another antivirus, something more powerful, with less margin for error.

Avira Antivirus has the quality of being multiplatform. It is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac, and in addition to its paid version, there is also a free version. As with most antivirus software, it is able to scan hard and removable drives for viruses, and it also runs as a background process, testing each file (both open and closed).

It is very useful and good if you browse the web a lot or if you download many files from various sites, as it has a pretty good protection system that blocks pages and files. It also allows you to use your own VPN in case you want to hide your IP. Unfortunately, I have noticed that it is not very good to use in computers with a low power since they freeze or slow down too much.
