This product will be discontinued in near future and will be replaced with the new Premium Security product, that was announced by Avast. Feature-vise it’s basically the same product as Premier with some changes in licensing model which will cover single/multi-device version for up to 10 devices on platforms – Windows, Mac, Android and iOS. Internet Security is still being sold and we expect its users will be migrated to the new Premium Security in the future, most probably the single-device version, so you don’t need to worry buying this “old” product, you wouldn’t loose anything. You can only gain more features, since the Premium Security comes from Premier product.
