Avast SIG

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.

Trustwave Firewall

Currently, it has been updated and is now called Trustwave Managed UTM service, which shows that the company listens to its customers since they added many features recommended by users.
Certainly, this older version is no longer recommended for any scenario where it must be connected to the internet.

Pros

Avast SIG

  • ‘Designer’ of the site is great
  • Access places
  • The easiness to follow each demand
JULIA CORREIA SILVA | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trustwave Firewall

  • It is very reliable in environments without permanent refrigeration.
  • The rules that it handles are static, but it has some mechanisms for detecting instruments, which for the current users are very good.
  • It maintains VPNs in a stable way and its configuration is similar and compatible with other brands.

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

Trustwave Firewall

  • There is no option to include rules type functions, which would be very useful to save configuration time.
  • The support is not as helpful as I would like, nor its documentation.
  • A friendly graphical interface would be very well accepted.

Alternatives Considered

Avast SIG

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.

Trustwave Firewall

When Cisco was more concerned about the network, Trustwave did it for security. But now many things have changed and the competition is really hard for everyone.

Return on Investment

Avast SIG

  • Great for team communication
  • Great for improving our understanding of the product.
  • Terrible in language setting
JULIA CORREIA SILVA | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trustwave Firewall

  • It is a robust equipment, therefore it is still in use, in a highly isolated environment.
  • I think that the investment was recovered from the first moment, from its time when it was very advanced.
