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).

F-Secure Business Suite

  • Very stable and cost-effective.
  • Better integration with leading database vendors would be great; this would address features that are missing like x-windows support and concurrent secure file transfers.
  • Patching is relatively fast and not as frequent as other vendors (with no impact on adherence to security best practices).
  • Very easy to install and low storage footprint.

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.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • Most up to date secure/encryption technology.
  • Very fast to set up and maintain.
  • Supported by all major hardware platforms (Microsoft, Linux).

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.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • X-windows support could be more robust.
  • Virtual shell adaptation could be improved.
  • Greater concurrency for large secure transmissions would be a great add-on.

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.

  • Support organization is active, so is online community boards.
  • There have been no significant issues that haven't been able to be quickly addressed by either online documentation or F-Secure support.
  • Easy to use diagnostic tools and information gathering, make problem analysis fast.
  • Phone support can be different due to time zone differences, but this has not been a major issue.

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

F-Secure Business Suite

  • This suite of software does not have any mentionable competition, in my opinion.
  • It adheres to current security protocols, in-frequent patching requirements, low IT overhead, and on-going support are exemplary.
  • Robust documentation and online community boards help keep support and maintenance transparent and efficient.
  • Legacy support for older OS' is quite useful.
  • Simplicity when onboarding into custom hybrid network configurations is also vital.

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.
