AVG [AntiVirus Business Edition] is quite a compelling tool and helps in fighting against all kinds of cyber attacks that used to harm us by affecting our files which are quite important to us. AVG has multiple features and its scanning speed is amazing and is the hyperactive tool and its notification feature is also helpful. Email protecting is not so good.

Cylance Smart Antivirus is well suited for the typical office user. It can be very restrictive if you do not tune it properly and can cause many issues. When tuned and set up properly it is appropriate for 95% of use cases. The last 5% are ones that have the capabilities of bringing an organization down if it is not tuned properly.

Cons
Avast Software
  • Like other versions, installing this antivirus or others of the same family in systems of low capacity and speed can be a bad idea because if your PC does not have enough power it can tend to freeze and become very slow.

Support Rating
Avast Software
the support and help is generally quite fast, efficient and pertinent to what you need, besides the community helps a lot by providing extra solutions quickly and clearly, something that anyone can do without having to know a lot about pc or antivirus or operating systems. Also compared to other supports, all questions are answered, or at least those that I have had, something that in other places (Microsoft) does not always happen.

With the products mentioned such as AVAST and NORTON business antivirus protections software, AVG antivirus business Edition outscores both of them in terms of PC energy usage and the need of looking after them. With AVG antivirus business Edition. Apart from the free trial, which is great an all, it's the features and tools. A quick install and I am in the application to start using, there is no set-ups, pop-ups and or any other bloatware to install with AVG antivirus business Edition. Moreover, the other competitors tend to slow down machines with their high CPU and RAM usage. As a result, when clicking on other applications they are much slower to respond, but with AVG antivirus business Edition it uses less than 100MB of ram when running in the background, and for CPU I at least have not seen go beyond 10%. I know this because I have the task manager open when I want to see which applications are using the most RAM and CPU, and AVG antivirus business Edition is always at the bottom on the list

Cylance was the first AI scanning-based AV on the market. While Webroot was competitive we found Cylance to be the better solution.

Return on Investment
Avast Software
  • Definitely worth the cost and good ROI.
  • Because it takes the pressure off IT staff for constant management etc. We're freed up to deal with other important issues.
  • AVG runs in the background 24/7 doing its job and we have very few virus issues.
