Overall Satisfaction with Avast Business Antivirus

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
  • Protects phones and PCs from viruses
  • Makes my admin job way easier
For up to 10 users, Avast Antivirus is best suited for SMB. The well known interface for home users makes the switch to Avast Business Antivirus seamless. I ran a few virus detection scenarios and found that basically all antiviruses out there work as advertised. Known viruses are detected and quarantined. The most frequently used vector of attack is USB drives. A lot of Avast Business Antivirus users tend to use Avast Free and Premium solutions when experiencing SMB version. I would not recommend using Avast Business Antivirus on a PC without at least 8GB of ram or a Phone without at least 4GB. Fast (ssd) disk is good option and at least i3/ryzen 3 CPU.

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.
