Avast CloudCare

Avast CloudCare is very competitively priced for a cloud-managed product. Its management console is excellent, easy to use, and easy to manage resources and policies. There is a good overview of all alerts and issues with clients, and it is easy to apply changes to multiple devices at the same time. It is also easy to split assets into groups and manage the group, whether it is just a specific policy or a particular setting or exception is needed.

Cisco Routers

Cisco Routers are well suited for organizations that are looking for reliable and secure network routers. Once they are set up and configured, they have a reputation for longevity. Updates from Cisco are provided on a regular basis and contain many security patches throughout the year. The use of Cisco Routers might be less appropriate for smaller organizations that may not have the staff to support the devices.

Avast CloudCare

Avast CloudCare 8.0
Based on 2 answers
The support at Avast CloudCare is excellent; the guys are professional and know their product very well. They have helped us (in the latter years of us using the product), on multiple occasions, especially when an upgrade goes wrong. Community support is not as high, but that is to be expected, as other products are much more popular and have much better adoption. All in all, although being an average Antivirus solution, the management console is excellent, and the support the company offers is excellent too.

Alternatives Considered

Avast CloudCare

When the product was initially deployed in our organization, it was a stable, dependable, and easy to use Antivirus protection. However, the newer versions, under Avast CloudCare management, had significantly reduced the detection rates, turning it into not as great a product as it once was. This lead me to look into alternatives, and eventually, we decided to replace the product with Sophos Intercept X, with EDR. It is a much more expensive product; however, the features are much better, and the added functionality of, for example, web filtering saves costs elsewhere, so works out only a bit more expensive.

Cisco Routers

Purchasing Cisco Routers was a decision we made after researching various other options and solutions. The next best alternative we found was from Adtran - however, after assessing the costs and benefits of both solutions we decided on Cisco. Although, they are slightly more expensive we felt the product was far superior and was worth the incremental investment. A few years after the purchase decision we feel this was the right move and are very happy with the purchase

Return on Investment

Avast CloudCare

  • Below average protection.
  • On the flip-side it is cheap.

  • Using Cisco Routers, there are gains in network management possibilities. For example, you can add WAN and VPN redundancy to the business. Most small businesses still do not use such resources.
