    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.

    Trend Micro Apex One (formerly OfficeScan)

    Before Trend Micro OfficeScan we used Symantec Endpoint Protection and although it was very easy to deploy and to update agents it couldn't find a virus if you pointed it out with a neon sign. We were always getting hit with different viruses but since we migrated to Trend we no longer have that problem. Trend has definitely been preventing those kind of outbreaks successfully.

    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.

    Trend Micro Apex One (formerly OfficeScan)

    • The product has two important aspects, centralized console and an agent which is typically installed on every machine. When the product is installed on a dedicated server then all computers can readily get updated while in the same network (provided the agent is installed on every machine). This helps the machine to avoid any kind of virus attacks.
    • Even if the machines are not in the same network where the console is being run it can directly get all updates from the Trend Micro server directly and the machine is still protected. Hence, it is not necessary that users have to visit the office or internal network to get the update, once the agent is installed on the machine then they can get the update from anywhere as long as the machine has access to the Internet.
    • Once the agent is installed on the machine the users can themselves do a full scan and even check the logs themselves.

    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

    Trend Micro Apex One (formerly OfficeScan)

    • Only thing I would have to say that's negative is the reporting aspect. Basic reporting is good but still lacks some details. This is a problem with many of the software vendors I have encountered in the past as well. Reporting is still much better than most.

    It is very easy to stick with a vendor year after year, and it is also easy to see the faults in a product and want to change. This is the first time I have renewed with an antiviurs provider as others have been less than ideal and caused issues where there were none before, so while it isn't perfect, it is the best of the bunch currently and I am hopeful that it will continue to improve in future versions.

    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.

    It has been difficult at sometimes, the support people at one point told me that they couldn't tell me information about OfficeScan because it was knowledge that was passed down from engineer to engineer. The issue was that if you used the msi for the install any further installs would require the msi to have the same exact name or else the install fails and corrupts the install. This information is not listed anywhere on trends website. Support kept trying to get me to use the exe for installs instead, but we use SCCM and msi's work better. We had to write a script to come up with a solution so that we could uninstall the software and install the new software. Trend did provide the technical expertise to help with the script and had us work with one of the developers in order to resolve that issue. So they did fix their screw up but it took a while and several complaints.

    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

    Trend Micro Apex One (formerly OfficeScan)

    I have evaluated several endpoint security products over the years, but Trend Micro consistently lands in the Gartner's magic quadrant of best companies in this space, reviews well, and, most tellingly, I have had great success with their products. Every iteration brings improvements in ease of use and advancements in protection

    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.

    Trend Micro Apex One (formerly OfficeScan)

    • Increased employee efficiency is definitely one of the main reasons for using this product. A lot of valuable business hours can be saved by having this product as we all know that fixing virus issues involves more than technical expertise and takes a lot of time.
    • If the employee efficiency improves then any employee facing the customer will have a much better impact and will automatically improve customer service. Having a computer in good condition is going to have a better customer service and it will also help to meet deadlines.
    • The only negative impact I would say that it does affect other VPN agents (which is mandatory for certain client applications or accessing the client network) once the Trend Micro agent gets a version upgrade. On the other hand if the agents are not upgraded from time to time it may affect Trend Micro agents' functionality.
