    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.

    Symantec Endpoint Security is a well-rounded product that provides a significant amount of functionality and covers many of our endpoint needs without needing to resort to multiple vendors that might clash in unpredictable ways when ultimately deployed to the endpoints in our estate. The default policies are adequate and tuning these requires some time as with all similar EDR products but the product is flexible enough to allow very granular whitelisting/blacklisting which is great. Low resource requirements are also fantastic and we've not had many complaints from developers who were getting slowed down when compiling complex code with other previous solutions.

    Pros

    Avast Software

    • 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.

    • The virus and spyware protection has worked well for us, catching several things and quarantining the items or cleaning them.
    • The virus definitions very rarely fail to update for the users, so I feel confident that my client machines are kept up to date.
    • I like the report I get daily telling me about threats found and action taken without having to login to the console to look it up myself.

    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.

    Broadcom

    • The system should have a better ability to auto repair, if an item is malfunctioning it should auto reinstall.
    • The cloud platform and the server do not talk well to each other and it would be great to get the same data on both platforms, this may be due to version though.
    • It seems the whitelisting on the cloud platform could use some work.

        Symantec Endpoint Protection centralized management console provides easy to follow, clean, and modern HTML5 based interface. All functionality required to manage Symantec Endpoint Protection is available and presented through this management interface. The Symantec Endpoint Protection provides many roles out of the box and presents relevant information based on the user role. Symantec Endpoint Protection can benefit from further scripting/automation interface development.

        We've used it for years and the software is easy to use. The dashboard is easy to read, and you can easily figure out where to go to troubleshoot or deploy software. Symantec is there for emergencies like backup restoration or file retrieval. It's pretty low maintenance. Symantec is there when your IT infrastructure needs it

        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.

        Support is completely awful! You can never get anyone to help if you can even find a number to call. The support web portal is a joke and their response time if you're even able to submit a ticket is ridiculously slow.

        Alternatives Considered

        Avast Software

        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

        Symantec Endpoint Security offers very similar features to the above products, they all do the same thing in terms of protecting your endpoints against cybersecurity threats. Installation wise the products all install from a central management system and report back to this for central reporting. Ultimately we choose Symantec as the reseller was able to offer additional incentives which made their pricing very competitive.

        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.

        • The ROI from deploying this has led to fewer security issues which reduces costs.
        • Keeping track of security issues and how the were remedied is easier.
        • Deskside support can work with end users easily if something is triggered and this allows us to not have to overstaff.
