Avira Antivirus

It is good for organizations that need an AV solution that does really well in AV detection/performance tests, and also has a good track record for using little system resources on the client machine.It is less suited for organizations that want an AV product that is historically used by the industry or is known as an industry standard (e.g. Microsoft products, etc).

Bitdefender is one of the best, probably the best, AV product currently on the market. I've used Viper for business and was infected with a virus. I've tested Fortinet Endpoint Protection, but remained a GravityZone customer. Overall, if you get this and deploy it, you can't go wrong. Their AI engine is first class and cutting edge.

Pros

Avira Antivirus

  • It detects adware (sometimes you just need some ease of advertisement) and phishing.
  • It has Webguard, that allows us to block access to malicious websites.
  • It scans email (POP3 and SMTP), an everyday tool I personally use.
  • It has Bootable RescueCD, wich helps to remove malware and system recoveries.
  • It has a very high detection rate and a very fast scanning engine.

Bitdefender GravityZone

  • The Gravity Zone console is quite easy to use, particularly if the person assigned to implement and deploy have a good understanding of how to make it work to get at the information needed.
  • The Dashboard is customizable to get at the information needed in one location.
  • Pushing tasks across the network is quite easy.
  • Having said the what is available in gravity zone, it is easy to see what devices have activity that frequently result in quarantines. This allows us to address "misuse" of our devices. Which brings me to my final point...
  • The policies can be set up to lock devices down with very strict rules (such as device locking) or with relaxed policies.

Cons

Avira Antivirus

  • For the use that I currently give to my laptop it works very well, but it can fail if your way of surfing the web is careful and you dedicate yourself to visit infected forums, download files from any part, or use bad programs.

Bitdefender GravityZone

  • I wish we could access logs from the cloud-based product. Not just in a viewable sense but from a download so that we can scrape them for interesting strings.
  • Bitdefender needs to make it easier to export data from the web interface. As it stands now, it's a time-consuming copy and paste activity.
  • I would like for there to a notification service when someone encounters malware. For example, an email to our IT team when someone's Bitdefender quarantines a file.

It works. I rely heavily on my vendors to provide a product that works, is easy to implement, and that they support. As well as be a decent value for the money

The console is easy to use, but has grown to have a lot of functionality. The only challenge is that all functions (even disabled and not installed ones) are shown. It would be great if only the functions that are active would be visible.

Since the product runs really well overall, and I haven't really run into any major issues, I have not had a need to contact the vendor directly for support. I have perused the vendor's site for other support channels, and they do have a number of good support options, such as submitting a request, KB articles, and Community forums. One support option that does not seem to be available (or might be really hard to find) is a direct line to call for phone support. As an individual or business member you can submit a request via a web form, which then will be sent to the tech support team, at which point they will call you.

While I have only had a few questions for them, Bitdefender GravityZone staff were always quick to reply and very thorough with their answers. They were easy to understand and communicate with and genuinely wanted to help, not just answer phones and emails because it is their job. Good people.

Alternatives Considered

Avira Antivirus

F-Secure despite being a good antivirus when it comes to protecting home equipment does not act the same for business protection because its performance is much lower as well as its ease of use while Avira meets these requirements and its protection is much more complete and efficient, since not only acts against common threats but it is also optimal to protect against advanced threats and the one that works in real time makes the virus detection rate much more efficient before any other antivirus, that is why It is ideal for the protection of business teams
Michelli Capecchi | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bitdefender GravityZone

We have used McAfee Endpoint Security in the past - a low, cost-effective version. We did not find this effective as some computers were protected and others were not. There was also not a centralized log in that we could go in to monitor devices and see how effective it was at protecting. Overall, we wanted something more consistent and dependable.

Return on Investment

Avira Antivirus

  • I have not had serious infections due to viruses or Trojans. In addition, every time a malicious code is downloaded, Avira detects it and blocks it fast enough. So, I have not had to re-format my PC, I have not lost documents that I had stored on disk C, and of course, I have not lost time trying to recover the data from my PC.
  • I've also been able to install it on not-so-powerful PCs, so its users have been able to continue using their computers without any problem and also avoid serious infections.

Bitdefender GravityZone

  • It is always difficult to justify the ROI of an anti-virus when looked from a cost perspective. However, if viewed from the perspective of risk mitigation, the justification is much simpler, as Bitdefender gives the information security team peace of mind without costing the organization an arm and a leg.
