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.

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.

Reasons 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.

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.
