AVG AntiVirus Business Edition

A couple of well-suited scenarios would be: Let's say if you have a small business especially in the tech industry, its a must to have. It's good, reliable, secure antivirus protection against data, PC hijack, and identity theft. You cannot go wrong with using AVG AntiVirus Business Edition. Another would be for personal PC if you have pictures, important financial information like our tax returns and such you would want to keep them safe, encrypted, and protect by using a suitable antivirus, and AVG AntiVirus Business Edition would be the one to go with. Nevertheless, there are hardly any scenarios that I can think of where AVG antivirus business Edition is not suitable. To say the least, in fact, it is good all around

Malwarebytes

Malwarebytes is definitely one of the top contenders in its field. As with any corporate software, there are headaches all along the way -- from implementation to daily use and support. And cost is also a factor. Although not inexpensive, Malwarebytes is comparable to its close competitors. Overall, the quality of the product shines through, and it does what it's intended to do...protect!

Pros

AVG AntiVirus Business Edition

  • The client runs quietly in the background without distraction to the user.
  • Very aggressively defends against viruses in email attachments and across the LAN.
  • Real-time constant updates take the load off IT admin duties.
  • It just works.

Malwarebytes

  • Low system resources, it does not slow down the whole computer when scanning or when real-time protection is enabled
  • Quick and frequent updates, usually people hate updating, but for malware/viruses, you want to be updated as possible. It takes less than 15 seconds and usually does it automatically. They usually send a few updates a day as they find more.
  • Protection features actually work when visiting known bad websites. The page will be blocked and nothing will be downloaded. It may not be what the user wants, but it's what the user needs (as the user can't know every bad website)

Cons

AVG AntiVirus Business Edition

  • 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.

Malwarebytes

  • One of the main things that malwarebytes is missing as a company, is phone support for its clients. All support questions has to go thru email only. This is not acceptable for issues that needs to be resolved quickly.
  • There is an issue when installing the client on a machine, it has a set amount of time where the software can register with the management server. The issue with this is, with machines that are over a wide area network, slow connection speeds can cause the software not to register. When that happens, it never re attempts to register in the future.

The last time we renewed Malwarebytes, we renewed for a 3 year renewal. That should describe the confidence we have in the product. Plus the cost savings impact year after year.

When you have a product that does the job that it describes or advertises, you have to love it. While the malware posture is always changing, we depend on products that we pay for year after year to protect us from threats, both known and unknown. I give this rating because Malwarebytes just works and you don't have to worry whether it is going to beat up other programs on your systems.

Based on 1 answer
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.

I honestly haven't needed support for Malwarebytes because I haven't had any problems with it, whatsoever. I am giving it a 9 rating because I haven't actually had an encounter or experience with customer service or support, so it's hard to rate the actual support team since I've never had the privilege of coming into contact with them.

Alternatives Considered

AVG AntiVirus Business Edition

We have chosen AVG because of its excellent performance. It also gives great and responsive customer support. If we face any problem, its customer support works quickly and gives professional services.

Malwarebytes

Avast and Norton's products were part of the testing for us but the cost was very high for them and the products were not light on the machine. They took up a lot of memory and slowed the computers down. Malwarebytes although may lack some feature, is a very light software.

Return on Investment

AVG AntiVirus Business Edition

  • Positive impact on protection against electronic fraud.
  • Positive impact in early warning on internet pages.
  • Positive impact on comprehensive system protection.
  • Negative impact on resource consumption.
Rafael Mejias | TrustRadius Reviewer

Malwarebytes

  • One of the positive impacts it has had was that it offers another layer of protection against threats in an organization. It almost seems like there is never an all-in-one solution when it comes to AV and protecting/removing threats, and that there is a benefit to running more than one product on endpoints.
  • Another positive impact it has had was it really hasn't hurt user productivity when the program runs on the end-user's system. It could scan, or even be left open, and the end-user should not experience any slowdowns.
