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.

Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection

It is well suited in environments that want a simple AV product/solution that, for the most part, can be easily deployed to client endpoints. It is also good for environments that want something that is easy to use by end-users, and also doesn't use a whole lot of system resources.It is less suited for environments that want an AV solution that is more robust feature-wise, or has more configurable options for the end-users. It is also less suited for those organizations that want an AV product to have the highest detection rate in the industry.

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.

Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection

  • Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection offers exceptional threat protections for signature-based "known" threats.
  • The signatures are constantly updated and management of this application is super easy with the use of Microsoft SCCM.
  • The application is very much a "set it and let it" type of deployment. Once you install it, there are very little configuration or changes that need to be made.

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.

Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection

  • The product could improve in the area of having better mechanisms in place with how the SCEP client is deployed/installed from the server on the management side. We have run into this firsthand with the client not installing on an endpoint, and then having to take the time to investigate why it was not installing.
  • A second improvement that can be made is to keep trying to improve the products detection rate for finding malware/viruses. The case can be made that there are some products out there that do a better job at this and have a higher detection rate.

There was a time and a place in which Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection was an excellent choice to provide threat protections. However, now that threats have been evolving, so too does the need for more advanced protections. In its current offering, it just no longer meets the needs of our organization in terms of providing protections against threats.

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.

Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection

How SCEP stacks up against some of the other AV solutions/products is that it does a pretty good job overall (not the best in the industry) at detecting/removing malware, which is the main focus for a product like this. It is also easy to use on the end-user side, which can't be said for some other AV products on the market.I was not involved with the selection/purchase of the product in the organization, but I'm almost certain the organization selected this based on the tight integration with Microsoft System Center Manager, which is used in the organization. Also, given the fact that SCEP is tightly integrated and works well in organizations that utilize Microsoft products, it was probably another factor in selecting this. Lastly, the cost of licenses was probably lower (because of System Center already being in place) than other AV products.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection

  • There was little/no cost associated with this software since we are utilizing SCCM and are paying license costs for that anyways.
  • The level or protection is excellent for the cost of the software.
  • There was at least one instance in which Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection identified a crypto-malware, but not before it had already started to encrypt many of our files. So it did detect the threat, but since it was a little delayed we still were infected.
