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

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

It would be well suited in an environment where most all your endpoints are Windows-based computers, as Windows Defender is already built into the operating system, so there is no client to have to worry about installing. It also will make the management of endpoints easier on the server side, if most all machines are Windows-based.It might be less of ideal solution if a company/organization were looking for something more robust, or had a lot more features/configuration settings. It also might be less ideal for a company/organization that was looking for a product that didn't have a high detection rate of false positives

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.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

  • Deployment: We've had some issues deploying, especially outside of the Windows environment.
  • Offboarding: There is currently no way to delete a computer. They disappear over time. We even renamed a computer, and it kept both the old and new name in there. Eventually, the older machines do go away, but there is no manual way to do this at the moment.

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 gave it a 7 out of 10 as I feel that there is still a lot of room for improvement. I remember how back in the day the software was looked down upon because of it being an unreliable and inefficient antivirus. But, Microsoft has really put in the hard work and made it worthy for it to be comparable to all the other security services out there.

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.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

MS ATP is lower on system resources and enables us to stretch out our endpoint hardware for an additional year. Also, MS ATP being an MS product fits in very nicely into MS remote management software and MS operating system. We have had little to no issues when hotfixes and roll updates are deployed, unlike 3rd party AV providers that we had experience with in the past.

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

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

  • A positive impact has been to increase productivity for IT staff, as it saves them time from having to install/configure clients on every endpoint.
  • Another positive impact has been on the user/client side, as it helps the user to increase their productivity with working on their computer, as the Windows Defender client uses little resources to run on the system, and has a tendecy to not slowdown systems
