Avast is a company which offers Anti-virus software, under both paid and free plans. Avast Anti-Virus is self-proclaimed as the most-trusted security provider in the world. The numbers seem to support this declaration, as they boast 230,000,000 users, devices, and businesses in a total of 186 countries.[2] Avast also has six testing labs, which seems to support this claim as well, since this is more than any other anti-virus company as of 2016.[3]
