Avast offers their business class antivirus application, simply Avast Business Antivirus, which the vendor boasts as having a 100% malware detection rate and a centralized management platform to monitor threats network-wide across all connected endpoints, in editions for Windows, MacOS, and Windows Server.Avast Business Antivirus - A Platform MaturedCurrently, 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.,9,We pay about $20/endpoint/year which includes servers and all other devices plus the remote access and cloud portal management. For a Pro class service that's peanuts. As stated, I haven't had anything slip through, though I can say that we are super careful to not let anything through. Could be either, but I feel safer as an IT person that Avast is in place. The solution is priced right, runs well, is cloud-based and makes for very low management.

I must say that this process went seamlessly with absolutely no interruption to our daily business.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

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.
