Great security tool

Work from home makes company more vulnerable to outside threats. Users access company content from their phones, PCs, laptops and maybe unauthorised devices. Having such a great tool for protections is really a life saver.

PROS

A very easy to use tool, secure, reliable and above all it does not slow down your PC while running, not even while scanning. It is cheaper that most of the competitors and lets you know literally for every bit of potential threat it has found.

CONS

Nothing negative to talk about apart from the fact that there is no option for subscription on less that 10 licenses. Apart from that nothing else. Everything is perfect.

Reasons for switching to Avast Small Office Protection

The past solution slowed down overall PC performance.

Avast the pirate on a search for malware!

It really frees time for me to help other clients by using the protection features that are enabled by the software it enables users to be a little bit more “free” with there employees or co workers without having to constantly service there product due to a threat to the operating system or something that hinders usage

PROS

That benefit that once the system identifies a virus or Trojan whatever it may be it locks said “nasty” inside a chest where it deactivated all function for the program and protects the computer from any damage the item may cause

CONS

Sometimes it may block software installation however I’m usually the kind of guy that uses the good protection of the software to be able to use sketchy downwloads… in other words even if you install this of grandpas “leisure” computer you won’t have to worry about him having a visit from your grandson to clear it out for him

Reason for choosing Avast Small Office Protection

Due to the simplicity of the product and the benefits it provides to the user including an easier way of understanding exactly what the computer finds when it indemnified a foreign entity

Inexpensive with good protection.

It's come in handy over the years and I would recommend this to any business owner or for private use.

PROS

Avast is easy to use and gives you insight on what websites are trying to gain access to your computer. I've used them for personal and business use and they have worked great!

CONS

Some of the information on the dashboard canbe hard to understand unless you're more on the tech side of things.

Reasons for switching to Avast Small Office Protection

I needed to lower costs but still protect my computer and Avast has delivered on that.

Unobtrusive

PROS

Does what it says on the box and doesn't bother us with too many spurious messages

CONS

Funny you should ask... just this morning, on booting up my Mac reminded me that Avast may be incompatible with future Mac OS releases. It would inspire confidence if a patch made that go away.

Reason for choosing Avast Small Office Protection

good review, price and internal staff comments

Reasons for switching to Avast Small Office Protection

Hiccup with trying to change the licensing led me to a review of alternatives.
