    AVG AntiVirus Business Edition

    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.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

    Small or large organizations will benefit from using MDE. They need to provide a way to buy MDE as a standalone add-on product not only make it a bundled feature in Microsoft 365 E5. I wish it had the ability to deploy updates to 3rd party apps when the vulnerability scanner discovers a vulnerability. Currently, I have to use a 3rd party tool to address this gap.

    Pros

    AVG AntiVirus Business Edition

    • Provides protection against hacker attacks and data theft.
    • The software has a feature that checks web pages before opening them and analyzes whether they are safe or not.
    • Complete email protection against malware and spam attacks.
    • Recurring updates with the latest vaccines.
    • The software does not use much RAM and works on any type of workstation.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

    • It is great at proactively monitoring threats across the network. It works seamlessly with the client to monitor individual user computers, and it has a good real-time scanning engine.
    • On the client side, Windows Defender doesn't require a whole lot of system resources to run, nor will it create unnessary slowdowns of a computer, even while scanning for threats

    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.
    Benjamin Cornejo | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

    • Virus detection rates are below competitors.
    • Too many notifications that end up bothering.
    • Do not ask every time if you should send reports to Microsoft.

    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.

    Every time I've had a question or a problem, I was able to get it addressed quickly. Microsoft has a huge database for ATP support, and it has contained 90% of what I have looked for. It was a lifesaver during initial setup.

    Alternatives Considered

    AVG AntiVirus Business Edition

    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

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

    Defender works better for my org. This may depend on your ecosystem, however for me, Defender is a clear winner. I like Defender's ability to utilize multiple sensors and data points to detect possible breaches. I like the built-in EDR functionality. I do not need to purchase a separate EDR software anymore. I really like the vulnerability management. it has enabled our SOC team to view multiple security-related sensors from a single portal.

    Return on Investment

    AVG AntiVirus Business Edition

    • 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.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

    • There is definitely a piece of mind provided when you know that your system will not get compromised because of malware and viruses.
    • The fact that I don't have to spend money in the first place means that I can spend money on other more important things that do require it.
