Why Choose PC Matic over Avast?

Superior Protection with Application Allowlisting

PC Matic's patented application allowlisting technology has revolutionized the way people are thinking about cybersecurity.

As malware and ransomware attacks become more sophisticated each day, traditional blacklist antivirus becomes more outdated and ineffective. Only application allowlisting can prevent malware and ransomware.

It's never too late to switch to application allowlisting.

Affordable Security Made and Maintained in America

All American product!

After trying some other security products, I found PC Matic superior and gives me peace of mind about my online information.


This is an industry standard computer protection software, at (for me) nearly 50% savings. The ease of removing my old protection software (which they walk you through), software installation, scanning and finally the dashboard capabilities was/is quite impressive. Oh yeah and it's more cost effective. This is a win-win. I highly recommend PC Matic!!!

Kurt Davis recommends PC Matic

Been using PC Matic for several years now. Really enjoy seeing the scan results. Also a benefit is the maintenance part of the program that keeps my desktop running smoothly. Even for my older desktop works great. Very pleased with the results and knowing that I’m protected.


This product is great!

This product was the best we have ever used and we tried several. If computer security is a concern this is the single best product I've found to cover all the bases.

Awesome product!

I love this anti-virus program! I have had several different anti-virus programs before and PC Matic far exceeds them all! And they are not kidding when they talk about "lightning speeds" - my laptop is soooo much faster than before!
