Possibly. We tested DeepArmor running side-by-side with Avast Free Antivirus, McAfee (Intel Security) Home Edition, Sophos Endpoint Protection, Symantec Norton Security, Windows Defender and all seemed to function normally alongside DeepArmor, although frequently with higher than normal resource usage for both, as both need to scan the same files.
We do fully integrate with Windows Security Center and work side-by-side with Windows Defender without an issues.
If you are seeing performance issues with your current anti-malware running along with DeepArmor, we recommend only using our product with Windows Defender.
In the following example, we demonstrate how DeepArmor and Avast Free AV worked in tandem to detect, block, and quarantine the ‘Locky’ ransomware trojan as shown below.
After running the ‘Locky’ ransomware trojan, DeepArmor immediately alerts and blocks the trojan from running.
After the trojan is blocked by DeepArmor (Note the ‘Windows access denied’ error), Avast immediately quarantines the file.
Finally, Avast finishes by recommending a boot-time scan.
