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.

Gigamon

Gigamon span port redistribution switches are great for capturing traffic from a single span port and redistributing, decrypting and converting to NetFlow. These devices are taps on steroids and are really great at what they do. I would highly recommend getting one at each location for the core of the network, especially where you want to collect actual packets and conversion to NetFlow, or the like is needed.

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.

Gigamon

Taps and or just using span ports directly to the devices. The Interesting thing about Gigamon is its uniqueness, there are very little devices that are able to do all the functions that Gigamon can perform.

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

Gigamon

  • Ability to Monitor real data in real time
  • Conversion of traffic to NetFlow data saved on getting more expensive core switches
  • SSL decryption can provide a less expensive alternative than having data go thru SSL proxies
