Avast Business Antivirus

Avast Business is great to keep your business secure of virus/threads, is easy to install and use. I recommend digging around the options menu in order to get the best setup for your business. You should use the 30-day trial first in order to see if Avast Business Antivirus works well and fits your company needs.

FortiClient

FortiClient is really well suited for providing remote employees super quick access to a local network without needing much technical know-how. The virus scanning and web-blocking is also really great at making sure to keep the spam, ads, and other malicious web connections at bay. I have not run into any specific scenario that FortiClient has not been well suited - All of the scenarios in which I have used FortiClient have all functions really well for me.

Pros

Avast Business Antivirus

  • Cloud-based. I can manage all of my endpoints, policies, alerts, etc. from their cloud portal - from anywhere.
  • Through the same portal - I have remote access to all of my devices - priceless.
  • I absolutely love the endpoint client lockout (by password) - which does not allow my end users to disable under any circumstance - but allows me to do so by entering in the password. Stellar feature!
  • Policy-based - I can set all the parameters against a policy, hit save and that rolls out to the endpoints. I can also move devices between policies with ease from the cloud portal, so I can test features to ensure security levels remain tight.

  • FortiClient is easy to set up and get running on Windows 10.
  • You can set up and connect very quickly and, according to you connection's reliability, it never goes down.
  • It's fast (not much overhead) and doesn't impact the computer's performance even on the system's start-up.

Cons

Avast Business Antivirus

  • This application is providing me a lot of benefits with its beautiful interface that is quite simple and well understanding for providing a variety of features for my daily work process.
  • I am having all positive experiences with it as it is helping me out in different ways to prevent any anti-theft features for my databases.
  • For me, there is nothing to worry about in this particular application and also it’s a great initiator.

FortiClient

  • font way too small on login, unable to select an option, for example, to see each letter of password as typed promotes errors at login
  • login errors and failure rate extremely high as [reported] by all our physicians and other providers: not infrequently one will have to return to office after hours in order to complete charts or access charts to answer patient after hours questions
  • frequent disconnects in spite of excellent internet signal
  • unacceptable interruptions in patient care

Because the software is very simple and easy to use, very efficient, and has a stable connection that allows the user to perform tasks without problems. Also, this software does not need to be configured by IT technicians, since it comes with a very developed and understandable set up guide.

Usability is pretty solid. It is not as easy to manage and adjust if you are not a trained IT professional, which requires smaller companies without IT staff to reply on outsourced IT partners. The user interface is a bit clunky, but you can generally figure out what you need to do, it just takes a little bit of time and effort.

I gave this rating because after using this fantastic product. Everything is under my control and also all my databases are secure enough and also quite convenient to be managed. Thus, it’s a really good application in each and every regard that totally supports me in the best way.

The FortiNet team is fantastic. We've spent a lot of time with them over the years (albeit not often because their products are great) and every technician we get is very attentive and is willing to work with you until the end. We had an issue when trying to roll out an SSO solution, and had some trouble with the new MFA requirements for our VPNs, and they worked with our SSO vendor for as long as it took to get the job done.

Alternatives Considered

Avast Business Antivirus

For up to 10 users, Avast Antivirus is best suited for SMB. The well known interface for home users makes the switch to Avast Business Antivirus seamless. I ran a few virus detection scenarios and found that basically all antiviruses out there work as advertised. Known viruses are detected and quarantined. The most frequently used vector of attack is USB drives. A lot of Avast Business Antivirus users tend to use Avast Free and Premium solutions when experiencing SMB version. I would not recommend using Avast Business Antivirus on a PC without at least 8GB of ram or a Phone without at least 4GB. Fast (ssd) disk is good option and at least i3/ryzen 3 CPU.

AnyConnect would disconnect randomly. One of the main reasons for switching was a vulnerability in the client that Cisco had no plans on patching. We would have to constantly address the vulnerability once a quarter after our vulnerability scans.

Return on Investment

Avast Business Antivirus

  • It is always running in the background, making sure our system is safe.
  • It protects your personal data from viruses
  • Able to perform everyday activities without any problems.
Sam Randika | TrustRadius Reviewer

FortiClient

  • AV (as well as every other security product) are generally all negative impact non-ROI. FortiClient is the same. The good thing is that it is less expensive than other similar products and thus less negative.
  • From an administrative standpoint we have also spent very little time on care and feeding of the product so the manpower cost is also less.
