Good for the price

I feel it is good for the price. I enjoyed the mobile interface where you can subscribe to emails that will update you when you're away from the office. If it had a built-in RDP protection and application that would streamline with the VPN that have asked offers then it would be ideal. The patch management

Pros

I felt it was a nice ease of use but it did not feel as intuitive for the capabilities that it can achieve with the potential we have within state of the art programming.

Cons

I did not like the fact that it does not tie a remote protocol within the program but makes you pay several hundred per year to use their own protocol. This should simply protect your RDP that is already built into windows. It doesn't have a hub like Omni but I am sure this is due to the fact that most businesses have a hardware firewall. I feel a hub with top it off as far as quality functionality and state of the art technology. The hub could work as a separate accessing point rather than using a machine to facilitate processes within or outside of the network. The patch management doesn't update Windows and it's entirety so you still have to keep up to date with Windows updates. This s*** integrate both within it. Also having a description of what the patch does for you ie. Fixing an exploit or adding a feature etc

Could be much better

Mixed bag - I can't rely on it with confidence at the end of the day to manage the computers that I need to manage.

Pros

It's integrated with the Avast Anti-virus console

Cons

- It mentions that there are missing updates on computers when windows shows all updates as installed - pushing patches to computers rarely works and is often stuck

Reasons for choosing Avast Business Patch Management

integration with the antivirus product but I am starting to regret that

A Good Concept

Overall, the software is helpful, and I will continue to use it, but it would certainly benefit in some refinements surrounding its execution of its tasks.

Pros

Patch management software was easy to install and set up. Similarly, it is quite effective at identifying patches that are missing from my workstation.

Cons

Deploying patches can sometimes be awkward: the system would benefit from more active prompts as to the progress of the download/installation, upcoming restart needed to continue, and whether remaining patches will be installed after the restart. The absence of this "live progress" data can make the update process confusing, as it sometimes appears the process has stalled. A new development, which I find quite annoying, is a pop-up window informing me that a restart of my system is needed to complete patch installations, once per day, almost every time I have started my computer. I start the computer and am immediately informed it must reboot. This is not a move in a positive direction: aside from being annoying, it is almost intrusive, and is very poorly timed.

Reasons for choosing Avast Business Patch Management

I chose Avast Business Patch Management without comparing other products. I have long been a user of Avast security products on my personal computers; I believe wholly in its efficacy; and I am loyal to businesses that provide effective solutions.

Peace of mind for my organisation

Pros

One size fits all. Once installed we do not need to worry about possible breaches etc. Easy to get overview through the dashboard.

Cons

Patch management is not quite up to speed, and i am getting many repeat error messages. Restart required should be able to be scheduled, and not always forced upon the users.

Response from Avast
