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.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

It is valuable software for when it comes to a large or medium organization, since it helps to protect the endpoints, but as the number of servers increases its value increases. However, it is important to keep in mind that when it comes to low end devices, its protection can affect their performance. This is because it is not a software with a very light agent.

  • Easy of Administration, configuration and installation.
  • Support is excellent. When I've called in for help they go above and beyond to help you resolve you issue or answer your questions on a certain configuration.

Cons

Avast CloudCare

  • Below average protection
  • Unreasonably high system resource consumption.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

  • I don't like that I have to maintain the client and keep it up to date. Updating the client is not a very easy process.
  • Deploying the client could be easier. They have a deployment tool, but it doesn't really get to all PCs, which means I still have to manually deploy it.
  • Because the product has so much customization, it can also be very difficult to set up and understand.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection has done a sufficient job at identifying true positives. However, the UI could be improved and the amount of false positives is a little too frequent for my liking

There is a small learning curve, but compared to other AV products it is fairly simple and easy to catch onto

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.

No, besides to review documentation prior to beginning. That is what helped lead to a smooth implementation

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.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

Frankly, the other products were too expensive to make the change from Symantec so we continued with the tried and true protection. We don't have the funding to move to a more expensive product and the manpower that it would take to implement a new solution.

Return on Investment

Avast CloudCare

  • Below average protection.
  • On the flip-side it is cheap.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

  • Some digital assets were lost due to failures to detect various threats.
  • We had to use other products in combination in order to trust that all threats were actually detected, taking extra time. We couldn't use just SATP.
  • Ability to quickly manage/deploy via AD made maintenance of the application itself quick and easy.
