AVG AntiVirus Business Edition is one of my favorite endpoint security solutions. It is being used in our entire organization. It keeps our system secure and protected from harmful attacks. I would say it is capable of protecting devices. I appreciate it's great services that lets us have a secured environment.
  • Keeps powerful features
  • It protects us from hacker attacks
  • Well organized and easy to use software
  • Sometimes system works slow
  • It needs improvement for system scanning function
One of the greatest things about AVG AntiVirus is that it is a reliable platform. We do not have to worry about our business data. It keeps us safe and secure from virus attacks and even from hackers. Highly recommended AntiVirus. Overall, I would say it is one of the most excellent and well-suited products in our company.

We use AVG Business Edition across our network to protect all of our Windows workstations. It gives us peace of mind against malicious viruses attacking our computers.
  • The client runs quietly in the background without distraction to the user.
  • Very aggressively defends against viruses in email attachments and across the LAN.
  • Real-time constant updates take the load off IT admin duties.
  • It just works.
  • Server admin console could be a bit more intuitive.
  • Licensing between business and consumer editions could be clearer and more intuitive.
Great software for network management, letting it run on clients and taking care of virus security. Not using the firewall option due to its restrictive nature, but may be applicable in some environments. It interferes with our native programs that are not properly configured.

For almost a year I have been personally using AVG Business Edition with some collaborated business. Although I have always relied on avast, I must confess that AVG works in a much better way in web browsing protection by warning about potentially dangerous sites, which undoubtedly today is something really important since many websites are loaded with dangerous and potentially harmful scripts.

In my case, some problems that AVG has helped to avoid is the infection and theft of the web browser that occasionally occurs when installing some files obtained from the web. Also, it has allowed me to manage my PC and thus be able to clean this when it is full of junk data that makes the PC slow.
  • Easy and fast configuration, without needing to look for new configurations and make big adjustments.
  • Excellent web browsing protection that blocks files and alerts when facing potentially dangerous sites.
  • Pretty fluid and daily update system.
  • In-depth analysis system is very good, detecting and deleting files that other antivirus ignore.
  • Like other versions, installing this antivirus or others of the same family in systems of low capacity and speed can be a bad idea because if your PC does not have enough power it can tend to freeze and become very slow.
A scenario where AVG undoubtedly works in a very good way is when you browse the internet between forums and pages that use link shorteners, since usually these pages can contain dangerous files and generate immediate downloads of files without the user's knowledge, and there is where AVG works wonders, warning, blocking and protecting the system of these pages and files.

Lametably, an unfavorable scenario is when you do not have a system with enough resources, since you can not get the maximum performance of the antivirus, since it tends to freeze and make the process very slow. Also, in these moments when everything gets slow, you can not use your PC properly for another task either.

the support and help is generally quite fast, efficient and pertinent to what you need, besides the community helps a lot by providing extra solutions quickly and clearly, something that anyone can do without having to know a lot about pc or antivirus or operating systems.
Also compared to other supports, all questions are answered, or at least those that I have had, something that in other places (Microsoft) does not always happen.

AVG AntiVirus is used throughout the institution for three years. This software protects against possible fraud in our electronic transactions, alerts about malicious pages, and offers protection against email with harmful attachments. Since we started using this software, infections to the system have dropped considerably. In the commercial field, in an institution like ours, it saves us time in solving problems with viruses that could affect our ability to respond.
  • Protection against electronic fraud.
  • Alerts on pages with malicious codes.
  • Intuitive interface.
  • Effective in diagnosing and debugging the system
  • Cost of the license.
  • Sometimes the system slows down.
  • You must have good equipment to take advantage of the software 100%
The software is excellent in the prevention of electronic fraud, and this function is really important in these times where most of the transactions (for example, banking) are done electronically. It also performs efficiently in alerting us to web pages that could affect the system. Where I could say it does not have a very satisfactory adaptation, is that sometimes the system slows down when the computer is analyzed completely.

I work as a teacher and I always use a computer. I have used this antivirus for about 15 years and it's excellent. AVG is used to protect computers at the school where I work. It is used by the whole organization because it is easy to install and use, besides it also supports almost all operating systems.
  • Real-time protection of files, emails, and instant messages.
  • It is easy to install and use.
  • Regular updates.
  • Ability to repair some files infected by viruses and a quarantine area
  • Small discharge size
  • Unable to analyze units in a network
  • Fewer configuration options for both updates, analysis, and protection in real time
  • While the antivirus scans the computer, sometimes it gets slow to work.
This antivirus is suitable to be used in any organization that works with computers, as well as to be used at home since every computer requires a good antivirus and AVG is excellent. I do not consider inappropriate scenarios for the use of this antivirus because as I said every computer requires an antivirus.

AVG AntiVirus is being used for quite some time in all the laptops of those who work in "somosloscuervos". As we constantly work on the internet, reviewing pages, uploading files, viewing forums, we need a powerful protection system to avoid infections that can damage our computers and delay work. Before, we used another protection system, but it did not respond well and often it let pass malicious files that ended up infecting and hijacking the browsers.
  • its real-time protection system is very good, it protects efficiently against possible viruses, rootkits, ramsonware and others, that you find when you visit the web.
  • it does not occupy so many elements of the system, so it does not become slow or freeze and you can analyze the pc while doing other activities in it.
  • I think the update system is the only thing that has given me problems for two reasons, I think it should be updated more times in the day, especially due to the huge amount of dangerous files that there are, and I think they should make the process less heavy update because only there is a bit slower the pc.
AVG AntiVirus Business Edition is an excellent antivirus to use in the day and thus protect your data and your computer from all viruses and their variants that are on the web. You must bear in mind that even if you do not ask for so many resources, if you have a very old computer, it may still be slow, especially in the update process.

AVG Antivirus Business Edition is used widely in our company across all departments. AVG Antivirus Business Antivirus is used to keep the company data and devices safe from malicious people such as hackers and crackers. We also use it to protect our data from malicious programs such as viruses, worms, trojans, and ransomware. AVG has been sufficient and reliable in maintaining our data and devices are safe from the unpredictable.
  • Reliable protection from online threats
  • Scanning, Detection, and Removal of threats
  • Protecting our online privacy
  • I have faced problems when uninstalling the software
  • The updates are so many sometimes
AVG Antivirus Business Edition is most suitable for companies/individuals/organizations that deem it necessary to protect their devices, servers, and data from unauthorized access or modification. It is also very suitable for people or companies that have faced attacks before and would want to avoid this from reoccurring again.

Over 3 years ago we had implemented AVG AntiVirus in our Los Angeles office and we are still currently using AVG in our Amsterdam office. AVG AntiVirus does a great job protecting our workstations and servers from virus attacks. It resides quietly in the background scanning for potential threats. You can also perform an immediate scan of your entire computer to detect and quarantine any potential threats.
  • AVG AntiVirus Business Edition is an excellent program to protect all your computing devices from being attacked. The virus definitions are constantly updated as long as you have an internet connection.
  • AVG AntiVirus not only does a great job protecting your workstation, it also scans files located on all your network servers. When a file is identified as a potential threat, it is immediately quarantined for further investigation.
  • The cost per seat of AVG is the same whether it's protecting your workstation or network server. Some antivirus software will charge you double the price to protect your server. But AVG treats both the same and you don't have to spend additional dollars to keep all your data safe.
  • AVG AntiVirus does such a good job that at times it would detect a file or program as a potential threat when in reality they're not.
  • AVG AntiVirus' goal is protect you from potential virus attacks. But it does nothing to protect you from malware. So it's a good idea to install another program like Malwarebytes along side AVG to keep your computer safe from both these attacks.
  • AVG AntiVirus also offers the option to be hosted in the cloud. But we found that when we have to report false positives, the cloud version takes too long to respond. So files & programs will continued to be seen as potential threat s& will be quarantined.
AVG AntiVirus Business Edition is designed to protect all your computing devices in the office environment. It does an excellent job in keeping your individual computers safe from virus attacks and even a better job in scanning for those same potential threats on all your network data files. For under $45, both your computers & network servers are protected. On top of all this, you get free telephone support.

When I decided to start using AVG AntiVirus Business Edition almost 3 years ago, it was probably the best software decision I ever made in terms of selecting the antivirus software to protect my work pc and servers in our company. AVG AntiVirus Business Edition is being used across all departments, including on all our work PCs and hosted servers. The main problem it solves is the real-time protection and the peace of mind that our data is safe and secure at all times 24/7. For me, personally, I am able to implement, support, and develop our business intelligence software with a peace of mind knowing the code and scripts are secured using authentication and firewalls. The company I work for has no restrictions in terms of which websites we can/can not access, so having AVG antivirus business Edition installed on my pc is very important. I plan to use AVG antivirus business Edition for my personal PC In the near future. Moreover, with AVG antivirus business Edition we can tune up our server's speed by removing unnecessary files and registry logs and also create space; not only that my work PC is much faster after weekly tune-ups which prevent us from replacing PCs every now and then. The company I work has benefited a lot with using AVG antivirus business Edition because we can use all the features and tools it comes with.
  • Real -Time Protection: AVG antivirus business Edition updates in the background without interrupting my work, and keeps the antivirus files and services up to date. If there was a major update AVG antivirus business Edition would allow me to choose a time to restart my PC.
  • AVG Tuneup: With AVG antivirus business Edition it comes with the Tune up tool that cleans my junk files, registry logs, duplicate files, Browser history and downloads folder cleanups, and any files left over by the windows updates; As a result, makes my PC much faster and responsive to use.
  • Data Integrity: AVG antivirus business Edition has a behind the scenes scanner that scans for un-usual folders, and files that would prevent people from snooping in my personal information; Moreover, data protection and file shredder is what I use in my daily work PC any files I look at, I would delete using the file shredder to leave no trace of that file and also I would encrypt my important financial work files using AVG antivirus business Edition.
  • Web Threat Protection: with AVG antivirus business Edition the peace of mind is the ransomware protection that is a must, because we have quite a few servers that are important for us so our clients can access our business intelligence software to view their hospitality management financial reports.
  • Quick install gives me the ability to jump right on to my work and not needing to wait for AVG antivirus business Edition to finish installing; AVG antivirus business Edition is very fast in terms to quickly installing files and start protection right away.
  • I honestly do not have any negatives complains for AVG antivirus business Edition.
A couple of well-suited scenarios would be: Let's say if you have a small business especially in the tech industry, its a must to have. It's good, reliable, secure antivirus protection against data, PC hijack, and identity theft. You cannot go wrong with using AVG AntiVirus Business Edition. Another would be for personal PC if you have pictures, important financial information like our tax returns and such you would want to keep them safe, encrypted, and protect by using a suitable antivirus, and AVG AntiVirus Business Edition would be the one to go with. Nevertheless, there are hardly any scenarios that I can think of where AVG antivirus business Edition is not suitable. To say the least, in fact, it is good all around.
