    Avast Business Antivirus

    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.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

    Small or large organizations will benefit from using MDE. They need to provide a way to buy MDE as a standalone add-on product not only make it a bundled feature in Microsoft 365 E5. I wish it had the ability to deploy updates to 3rd party apps when the vulnerability scanner discovers a vulnerability. Currently, I have to use a 3rd party tool to address this gap.

    • Avast Business Antivirus is very good with your system resources saving you time when you are on demanding tasks that can make your system slow.
    • Avast Business Antivirus is amazing keeping constantly updated with latest virus and threads definitions that can harm your system keeping it secure all the time.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

    • It is great at proactively monitoring threats across the network. It works seamlessly with the client to monitor individual user computers, and it has a good real-time scanning engine.
    • On the client side, Windows Defender doesn't require a whole lot of system resources to run, nor will it create unnessary slowdowns of a computer, even while scanning for threats

    Cons

    Avast Business Antivirus

    • 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.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

    • Virus detection rates are below competitors.
    • Too many notifications that end up bothering.
    • Do not ask every time if you should send reports to Microsoft.

    Every time I've had a question or a problem, I was able to get it addressed quickly. Microsoft has a huge database for ATP support, and it has contained 90% of what I have looked for. It was a lifesaver during initial setup.

    Avast Business Antivirus

    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.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

    Defender works better for my org. This may depend on your ecosystem, however for me, Defender is a clear winner. I like Defender's ability to utilize multiple sensors and data points to detect possible breaches. I like the built-in EDR functionality. I do not need to purchase a separate EDR software anymore. I really like the vulnerability management. it has enabled our SOC team to view multiple security-related sensors from a single portal.

    • While it is not the cheapest option, it is worth the cost considering the level of protection and all the features that it offers.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

    • There is definitely a piece of mind provided when you know that your system will not get compromised because of malware and viruses.
    • The fact that I don't have to spend money in the first place means that I can spend money on other more important things that do require it.
