Recommendations to others considering Avast for Business

If your business does not bear the risk of confidential data being shared and there are no Linux/Mac based devices, Avast End Point protection is an economical option for a decent business-level protection. Obviously, if you can spend more, you have better options available.

Pros

Cons

I do not think of any feature that adds the complexity of the antivirus software solution, but definitely they should bring updates frequently instead of occasionally.

Decent antivirus protection with few missing features

2015-12-22

Pros

The best thing I like is their centralized Enterprise management console which can handle complex workstation structures and hierarchies prevalent in MNCs from a single location.

Cons

There is no support for Mac and Linux based workstations.Also, there is no support available for securing mobile devices which have become an integral part of today's business.

Recommendations to others considering Avast for Business

If you are a startup and expecting to scale up in near future, this might be a good option as it comes with 2 different consoles. So, you don't need to change your basic setup when moving to a complex hierarchy setup. But if your network has Linux servers or planning to have Linux servers, then you might to reconsider your choice of Avast endpoint protection suite as you have to buy a separate protection package for your Linux based file servers or email servers.

I like using the Avast Software

2018-05-15

Avast for Business is a cloud-based endpoint security solution aimed squarely at the busienss user.

Pros

I like using cloud based systems that hold your data in the storage so you can access it from every device you use.

Cons

if you are a business you are limited to FAQs and email help support only which could slow business development down dealing with some one over email. Nothing else negative I could think of.

Simple and elegant but lots of features

2018-02-07

Wonderful full featured antivirus with a good track record and a great home version as well

Pros

The download scans stop most threats before they become an issue and having virtually the same program as a constant at home and at work makes users more comfortable with the interface and the functions.

Cons

Additionally, security alerts are sometimes mistaken for regular notifications if sound is off or muffled by a noisier setting

Avast is a reliable and effective antivirus

2018-05-23

Pros

Avast gives us great security because it constantly updates the database to give a more complete security and detects viruses of all kinds, another of its benefits is that it protects in real time all the applications of the machine including email.

Cons

This software, although it is very effective, consumes many resources of the machine and, in turn, if you do not have Internet, it does not perform the updates of the database.
