Likelihood to Recommend

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).

The McAfee suite of internet security products has been my go-to source for internet security for over 7 years. Featuring a snappy interface, frequent updates, and an amazing customer service and support system, McAfee delivers a high quality enterprise level security product at a significant cost saving value to the user. It has been frequently recommended to my staff and my clients to provide their cyber security needs.

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.

  • Integration - McAfee builds their products to ensure integration with pre-existing products is seamless.
  • Customizability - Granular management of policies and security controls, able to tune and mold solutions to individual organizations.

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.

McAfee Total Protection

  • Updates while always current and valuable occur very often and need to be administered constantly if your systems administrators do not schedule them on a regular basis.
  • Depending on your system it can be a resource burden when running in the background.
  • Interface can be difficult to navigate at times for non-experienced users.

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.

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

McAfee ultimately gives you the most bang for your buck so to speak, enabling you to have essential protection at a reasonable cost.

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.

  • McAfee briefings have alerted us to threats BEFORE they happen allowing us to shore up networks and security.
  • Frequent updates keep our system protected and provide valuable usage and system data that lets us determine the overall efficiency of our network and systems in one suite of products.
  • McAfee's constant 24/7 protection has saved money by assuring our systems are protected and therefore have saved us time by avoiding costly reconstiution of compromised systems.
