The scenario that Avast is great would be for large companies, where it works through homeoffice. Avast would be a bad idea for the educational institution, that is, a place where it will be directed to an underage audience, but I believe that Avast is on its way to becoming a global use system, so in the future it can be used in scenarios.

Virtualized Next-Generation Firewalls - VM Series

It is well suited for a hybrid network model where you would like to extend your existing infrastructure and security policies to the public cloud. With security up to layer 7, it helps you deploy all the security policies on the public cloud

Cons

Avast SIG

  • Should be able to leave in only 1 language
  • Make Avast more communicative
  • It has the possibility of leaving it our way
JULIA CORREIA SILVA | TrustRadius Reviewer

Virtualized Next-Generation Firewalls - VM Series

  • Sometimes the configuration gets out of sync between HA peers, it won't sync, and it also won't say why.
  • Every time I log in I get warned that the logfile partition is almost full. Yes, I know that, you're deleting the oldest ones, I know: stop telling me about it with a giant pop-up at login.
  • I like green, but I wish I could choose mauve as a background color for the web interface.

In my institution we didn't choose Avast, as they see the best for the team, that is, in this case I didn't have access to the other Avast. But in this case, I can pass on my experience with the Avast that I use. It is great, but it is necessary to improve in several aspects, such as the structure.

PAN was a much more solid choice, with less infrastructure needs required than Checkpoint. Cost was also a factor, with PAN being cheaper, even without the discounts given by our rep. VPN's are much easier to configure with non-heterogeneous products where the checkpoint is an absolute mess to configure a VPN with.
