    If a company is in
    need of an anti-virus that would help them in saving their data against all
    kinds of virus attacks then Avast is just a witty option. The utilization of
    cyberspace is inevitable and it is necessary to make it secure and Avast is a
    good option. There can be multiple powerful antivirus tools but the price of it
    is highly suitable and is the cheapest among its competitors.

    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.

    • [FortiClient] splits the traffic very well. For example, when users connect a VPN to the office they are connecting to the internal system which uses VPN traffic. If users access the public internet they use the internet traffic, but [Fortinet] does not route this traffic back to the office.

    Cons

    Avast Software

    • Alerts - these are handy for sure, but some alerts, when turned on, can flood your Inbox. I'd like to see a more granular approach that sets limits on how many times an alert will be delivered.
    • Fingerprint access on the mobile app would be awesome.
    • Aside from that, some of the menu paths are not straightforward. Like the install client creation can only be done from the dashboard (to my knowledge) when it should be done from the policy and/or device pages. Make the interface a little more intuitive.

    • 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.

      FortiClient is a security suite with which we can keep our equipment well-protected. And it is that in a system like Windows, which is always the target of all kinds of attacks, it is not enough to have a simple antivirus.

      Alternatives Considered

      Avast Software

      We once had an experience of using the AVG AntiVirus Business Edition for eight months and we experienced something surprising that it was not effective and active much as the prices were also too low as compared to Avast Business Antivirus. In short, to explain, Avast Business Antivirus is just [an] amazing antivirus and is working well enough with our organization to protect our systems. From our side, Avast is the best antivirus platform to experience by any organization.

      Meraki MX has a much more basic set of features compared to FortClient and the Fortinet ecosystem of devices and software. Setting up a FortiGate with FortiClient can take a little more time, but the feature set is much richer. We use Meraki MX is a few offices, but are now converting many of them over to the FortiClient and Fortinet suite of security devices and software.

      Return on Investment

      Avast Software

      • With Avast Business Antivirus, we can focus on other things and not worry about virus and malware attacks
      • The cost of deploying Avast Business Antivirus is low compared to what we can spend in the event of a malware or virus attack
      • While it is not the cheapest option, it is worth the cost considering the level of protection and all the features that it offers.

      • The free version of FortiClient VPN works great.
      • The fact that we have to pay for any version beyond 6.0.3 to connect to our firewalls that we already pay for licensing on is a little silly.
      • There is some support overhead with our clients and users to keep the software updated since it doesn't upgrade to new major versions automatically.
