The main change could be the new feature referred to as Ransomware Shield that will come within the premium products Avast Internet Security Software and Avast Premier.

This can be another layer which helps user to put together protected folders and report on apps which have read/write access of these.
Another ransomware protection is extremely useful, thinking about about all the latest attacks like WannaCry or Petya.
