Avast is being used in almost all of our departments which we fear can be under a virus attack and can damage us massively. I am specifically using it in my marketing department to prevent attacks. Our firm uses cyberspace to keep every piece of information safe and if that space comes under threat it can cause us massive damage. It is one of the basic reasons to get Avast in our company and the scanning speed and pricing makes it more suitable for us.
  • It keeps on working quietly in the background and it doesn’t interrupt our working.
  • We can monitor computers if there's any threat and it notifies us every time it detects any threat.
  • It is a very powerful tool against malware.
  • It scans millions of files within a fraction of seconds.
  • Installation is a bit tricky as well as is a slow process and consumes much time.
  • Reports should be improved with more nitty-gritty details
  • I can't think of any other flaw of Avast Business Antivirus.
If a company is in need of an anti-virus that would help them in saving their data against all kinds of virus attacks then Avast is just a witty option. The utilization of cyberspace is inevitable and it is necessary to make it secure and Avast is a good option. There can be multiple powerful antivirus tools but the price of it is highly suitable and is the cheapest among its competitors.

Avast Business Antivirus is being installed by our organization and wherever it is installed, [it] has targeted all those systems that were on the server or on a chance of getting any cybercrime or attack. The systems [house] our confidential data and it provides us the capability to secure endpoints and effect all kinds of malfunctions and viruses.


  • Avast Business Antivirus is a very safe-to-use tool for online threats.
  • The background working of scanning throughout the day is just awesome.
  • We are a little bit disturbed by its time taking installation process.
  • It consumes a lot of space on the storage and sometimes slows the speed of the system.
We would definitely like to recommend Avast Business Antivirus to any organization that is searching for an effective and advanced tool to work best against viruses, malware, or any kind of cyber-attacks. As we do understand the loss behind any cyber-attack or virus attack for any kind of organization. One of the very important reasons for recommending Avast Business antivirus is, it not only detects and removes the virus but also keeps a record and history of attacks for future protection.

We started using Avast Business Antivirus when we first moved our accounting systems over to internet enabled computers (yes, we were air-gapped). I had used the personal free edition on my home computers and as the IT administrator for our corporate group, I chose to use the business version for our office computers. It worked great and was very easy to setup and configure.
  • Notifications of issues
  • Easy installation
  • Managing installation in the cloud onsole
  • Monitoring computers
  • The need to reboot sometimes seems excessive
I think Avast Business Antivirus is well suited for small to medium sized businesses where IT administration is more hands on. Though it may be possible, I've not found a way to be able to push out the program to new computers automatically and typically have had to manually install the program. The notifications of issue is really great and resolving issues in the cloud console is intuitive and easy.

Avast Business Antivirus has been our go to software when it comes to protecting our computer systems and files against malicious attacks from virus, malware, and other online threats. The software is deployed across all departments and it has proved to be very effective over time. It is easy to use and most importantly, it is non obtrusive (it never disrupts other running software). It is the best I have used so far.
  • Avast Business Antivirus is easy to use and comes with best features
  • It is a light software that never lags
  • It is non obtrusive
  • It is quick to detect, screen and report attacks.
  • It receives updates regularly and this keeps the software ready to handle all manner of attacks
  • Besides the price which is on the high side, I have no more complains.
Avast Business Antivirus is a must-have for businesses especially in the modern era where viruses and malware keep on evolving. The software is able to keep up with the tread thereby offering the best protection. You need not worry about attacks on your computer systems with Avast Business Antivirus in place.

Avast Business Antivirus tool is deployed in our organization almost everywhere. We installed this tool and targeted all those computers that were on the verge of any cyber attack and had our private information. It provides great security on endpoints and is effective against all kinds of viruses like malware and other viruses. Its working doesn’t interrupt our company’s workload. I just want it to take less time in installation and the update issue must be resolved.
  • Avast is a safe tool and provides real-time security against malware.
  • It keeps on scanning our systems and works smoothly in the background.
  • Its strength lies in its interface that is quite clear.
  • Its installation takes a lot of time which is annoying.
  • Its subscription rate is beyond our expectations.
This tool is suitable for all sizes of companies from small to large and has the capacity to detect all kinds of threats. Even the files that seem anonymous to this tool are under suspicion and it keeps on scanning and provides us entire protection on endpoints. This malware protection software is magnificent in its working. I like the way it keeps on scanning files and detects viruses and malware, and provides protection on endpoints.

Avast is a wonderful antivirus software and it is installed in all of our important systems with all the important business-related files. It is excellent in protecting our company’s systems and helps prevent malicious viruses that can cause much harm. The most important thing about this tool is that it keeps detecting and scanning at the back smoothly.
  • It has wonderful working capabilities.
  • Its password management feature is quite marvelous.
  • It never interrupts the normal working of our systems.
  • It scans and removes viruses at a faster speed.
  • [I feel] its subscription charges are unfair.
  • Its installation speed is very slow [in my experience].
  • [I believe] its notification feature needs to be more advanced and needs improvement.
Malware and viruses can be much harmful to a system and I am using this tool for quite a long time and have found it quite effective against malware and all other kinds of viruses. It has a password management feature that is very beneficial in providing protection. And it is good for all sizes of organizations as it has the capacity to manage stuff.

Avast Business Antivirus is not used within my company. I implemented four installations for small and medium businesses with great success. I still maintain two of them.
  • Easy to use
  • Clean modern interface
  • Non-intrusive
  • Easy to maintain
  • Resource heavy
  • No per-user license model
I have been using Avast Free Antivirus for ages--at least 10+ years. A lot of people are well adapted to Avast interfaces and UX design. The switch to Avast Business Antivirus was very easy for me because I do not have to educate end-users. The licensing model is bit stiff, but the price is good (at the moment it's €13 per user for up to 10 devices). Avast advertises heavy Windows+Android solutions that many customers find attractive and best suited for their needs. What is lacking is a better license model. There is no per-user license plan in the Avast portfolio for small and medium companies. When you buy, you have to plan well in advance. Also Avast became, in the last few years, a very resource-heavy solution compared to the other solutions. I still recommend it, but it would be nice if there were a per-user license option, at least as an add-on for SMB licenses.

When we work on the internet, security is the most important thing. We must use a antivirus to prevent virus attacks. Avast keep checking the behavior of the daily using programs so that it detects viruses before they can harm your files. Avast also comes with many features, not only antivirus scanning but also Data Shredder, Web Shield, A firewall, Data Disk Rescue, and many others.
  • Easy to install.
  • Compatible with most Operating Systems.
  • Auto scans the external storage devices without letting it to harm your computer.
  • Reasonable price.
  • Offers a free trial period.
  • Has minimum system requirements
  • When a full scan is running, the system might be slow.
  • Reports could be better managed.
When comparing with other antivirus software available on the market, Avast did not slow down my PC like some of its competitors. It protects your PC from malicious programs during internet browsing. Avast is well-suited for any organization or even just for personal usage.

After trying antivirus solutions for my customers, Avast Business Antivirus gives the grade of security I need.
It's easy to work with and has plenty of handy extra tools to give maximum protection.
Here are my key aspects of Avast Endpoint protection:
*Easy to install
*Works with few hardware resources.
*Not as intrusive as other solutions.
*Remote administration.
*Constantly gets updated with new antivirus definitions.
*If you don't want to buy it you can install a trial version.
Problems Solved With Avast Business Antivirus:
*Get protection from the latest threats that can harm any system.
*Resolve bottlenecks due to live protection that can slow the organization's machines.
*Get Avast running with a few clicks.
*Easy to set up in order to get what you need of the solution.
  • Avast Business Antivirus does particularly well detecting any threads in real time in order to it's live scanner that's constantly detecting any changes in your system.
  • Avast Business Antivirus is very good with your system resources saving you time when you are on demanding tasks that can make your system slow.

You should use the 30-day trial first in order to see if Avast Business Antivirus works well and fits your company needs.

Currently, we have Avast Business antivirus (cloud version) as our endpoint protection. Just about every computer and server has the policy-based client installed. When we invested in this solution, we were originally with AVG (same platform) so we've gone through the buyout and ownership transfer. I must say that this process went seamlessly with absolutely no interruption to our daily business. Now we're fully on Avast, and I'm happy to say that they provide a very stable and reliable endpoint protection service.
  • Cloud-based. I can manage all of my endpoints, policies, alerts, etc. from their cloud portal - from anywhere.
  • Through the same portal - I have remote access to all of my devices - priceless.
  • I absolutely love the endpoint client lockout (by password) - which does not allow my end users to disable under any circumstance - but allows me to do so by entering in the password. Stellar feature!
  • Policy-based - I can set all the parameters against a policy, hit save and that rolls out to the endpoints. I can also move devices between policies with ease from the cloud portal, so I can test features to ensure security levels remain tight.
  • Alerts - these are handy for sure, but some alerts, when turned on, can flood your Inbox. I'd like to see a more granular approach that sets limits on how many times an alert will be delivered.
  • Fingerprint access on the mobile app would be awesome.
  • Aside from that, some of the menu paths are not straightforward. Like the install client creation can only be done from the dashboard (to my knowledge) when it should be done from the policy and/or device pages. Make the interface a little more intuitive.
I use Avast Business (not cloud) as endpoint protection for file servers at a few clients; it works very well in this scenario. I can't say that I've had any sort of Ransomware bypass this, but for sure no virus, keylogger, RAT or malware has slipped through. It doesn't take up a lot of resources, so I am able to have this deployed on SQL servers that are the backend to my Point of Sale system. No issues here either, so well suited in my opinion. I have this deployed on POS stations, general workstations, higher end stations running the Adobe Creative Suite; my own computer running 10-15 apps minimum at all times, servers with various roles. All of these run without any issue caused by the Avast solution.

I used Avast Business Antivirus on numerous servers for clients to allow them to run Windows machines with ease and peace of mind. When it comes to a virus or other malware infections, especially email attachments, Avast Business Antivirus scans them make sure nothing penetrates the network or local devices.
  • Secure Windows machines
  • Background scans
  • Easy to setup
  • Professional support
  • More tools
  • Firewall functions
Great for small businesses with 100 employees or less. Great to set up on the server and provide on multiple desktops that are on a network. Bigger networks take little time to implement.

This tool created for the purpose of protecting malicious files is one of the best options for the market. In our institution we have no problems with the protection system in the servers and more if it is a very useful tool. Therefore, it is the one that is protected with Avast Business Antivirus.
  • It has practical tools that improve the quality of PC performance.
  • Proper cleaning schedule.
  • Update without errors.
  • Recovery of hard disk space.
  • There are functions like when you use a free version that are only useful on test days.
  • Licenses must expire in 3 years and increase the price.
  • Updates very followed.
Avast Business Antivirus has few details that have surely improved over time. In many occasions, the functionality features can be slow due to the use of pages that enter our servers. For this, this tool allows us to deal with those cases that bother us and especially the security of our [equiptment], with the protection of passwords.

It was being used to protect all their Windows infrastructure: there were some desktop machines for developers and main servers with the software. Avast was used to protect this infrastructure from external attackers, viruses and any other threat. I like it because it worked seamlessly, it didn't bother or interrupted our daily job like other antiviruses. Also protected desktop machines immediately from malware inside pen drives, websites with suspicious behaviors. Servers machines were also protected from an external source. I would recommend it because it has great support and we didn't have any problems while I was working for that organization.
  • Seamless security, you don't get interruped by it.
  • Full protection from external sources: external units, malware from websites, connection security, etc.
  • Good support from Avast
  • Good performance
  • I have no complains about it, except sometimes it protects too much when you want to do some advance stuff in your os. But it doesn't affect average users.
It's great for a corporate environment and you don't want to spend time implementing your own security. Even if you are a small company you should use it and it will protect you from any threaths

As technical lead and a leading startup WonderBi Analytics, it's important to have secured system. We were using Avast Business Antivirus as a primary anti-virus software for all the systems across all departments It solves the major problem of a virus, malware. All systems which are assigned by our organization, as well as employees who use their own systems, gets installed with Avast Business Antivirus.
  • Easy to use interface and very intutive
  • Its really light on system compare to other antivirus available in market
  • Runs in background
  • There are too many features which many us don't need
  • Important features vpn etc are need to buy seperately
  • Pricing is little higher compared to others
If you have a team which is working remotely or users can use their own device then Avast Business Antivirus can really work really well. It won't help if users using smartphones rather than using laptops or desktop as avast don't have good smartphone antivirus.
