avast! Endpoint Protection Software


 

Avast! Endpoint Protection provides basic and reliable security to small and medium-sized businesses that are targeted by cybercriminals. The softwares’ threat detection network ensures a thorough virus signature database that is based on the data received from 200 million AVAST installations worldwide. Each virus signature comes to the users on real time basis via connection to avast virus lab cloud. The antivirus software is available as an on-premise solution.

Users of avast! Endpoint Protection benefit from vulnerability scanning and streaming virus database updates. Sandbox and auto-sandbox features use virtualization technology to detect threats according to their behavior. The user interface has been designed to keep up with the modern navigation styles. The scan engine protects against viruses, spyware, and other malicious agents. The software provides a machine-learning algorithm that can detect virus in milliseconds.

Avast FileRep lets users know whether a file is safe before one opens it. The technology is also used internally to help the scanning engine make more intelligent decisions.

If not for the auto renewal I'd be very happy with this company. Because customer service wouldn't help nor respond to BBB complaint I will find new software when my current contract expires.

Pros

Pop ups when there is a potential problem. Notifies employees to contact administration as needed. Works in background otherwise.

Cons

Was charged an auto renewal on a canceled account. Customer service refused to help. Hasn't responded to BBB report about it.

Why Pay for Other Software

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

Why would you pay for the other brands when you can use Avast. I'll admit, I was skeptical at first. There's got to be a catch, right? - Free initially, but then you have to pay. That's not it at all. Avast works as well as other security software that you would purchase online or in the box stores, but it's free. I've used it for about 3 years. I knew about it, but never tried it. Don't use your PC another day without Avast. It's an excellent security must-have.

Pros

Free
Thorough
Effective

Advice to Others

You might think that "Free" means low quality. Not true with Avast. It's a top notch product!

avast! is very easy to use and setup/install, works well with multiple operating platforms, scanning feature works well and can be paused if needed, updates are easy to install, doesn't slow system down and I don't complain about anything FREE

Likes Least

I don't normally open up the interface so some notifications aren't received or read as soon as I should - an email notification would be great though - but again, for free software, I'm not complaining. I've never used their customer service or had to call for anything so can't comment on that.

Recommendations

Find out what you NEED and search for a software that gives you that....don't settle for less and don't pay for anything until you've been able to try it first.

The best thing I like is their centralized Enterprise management console which can handle complex workstation structures and hierarchies prevalent in MNCs from a single location. It offers an assortment of reports which can easily be customized as per the business needs and can be configured to generate at a particular frequency.
Remote deployment of updates and patches is also possible which is an efficient way to keep all of the endpoints updated automatically whenever they connect to the business network.

Likes Least

Avast Endpoint protection suite does support only Windows PC and file servers. There is no support for Mac and Linux based workstations.Also, there is no support available for securing mobile devices which have become an integral part of today's business.

Recommendations

If you are a startup and expecting to scale up in near future, this might be a good option as it comes with 2 different consoles. So, you don't need to change your basic setup when moving to a complex hierarchy setup. But if your network has Linux servers or planning to have Linux servers, then you might to reconsider your choice of Avast endpoint protection suite as you have to buy a separate protection package for your Linux based file servers or email servers.

Initially All HTTPs sites were rendered broken and I worked for a long time working this out as I did not try any of them before installing avast. Avast should warn about this issue during install but they do not. Lots of time wasted but if this helps someone else great.

A straight forward deployment with a very minimal number of prompt screens during regular use after the initial setup. It offers a good piece of mind and great protection for your servers and your workstations. The malware removal process was effective in locating and removing the infections.

Likes Least

The removal process for an infected machine was little lengthy and required multiple reboots to clean the machine. Fortunately none of the PC's that had the software ever had to be put through this process.

Recommendations

This software scans quickly on start up and offers great protection for the price. When scanning an infected PC it found everything the first time.

I am in love with it's AutoSandbox feature and it's integration with the File Rep cloud feature which identifies new files which could be potential threats based on feedback by other users across the globe. So, basically even if a certain file is tested and deemed as malware by Avast labs, if it's reputation is low, Avast automatically sandboxes it which means runs it in an isolated environment.

This is really a smart smart feature.

Likes Least

Customer service is not in the same league as the product. Although the product itself is state of the art but it runs into issues with updates and upgrades of OS and other softwares. And then the customer care is not good enough to support and resolve the customer issues.

Recommendations

This product does everything it claims to do except that the customer service is not good. One gets full control of what is getting implemented. So, I believe it is a choice between amazing product and not so good customer support at a competitive price.

The Small Office Administration Console is a web-based console which does not require a server operating system. This is ideal for small business with limited network.

Antispam and Firewall is kind of missing. Also, it only supports window based devices which is kind of a restriction if you wish to have a multi platform network.

Recommendations

I would recommend this product just for the flexibility and provides it provides. It caters to the needs of both the small and large businesses. It deploys numerous shields and updates are streamed in real time. So, if antispam and firewall protection is not a must and you have a windows only network, this product is worth every penny

Ideal solution for SOHO networks of up to 199 computers and no servers. So, it becomes ideal for Small and medium businesses who need to protect their workstations and don't need to pay additionally for the server protection.Also, depending on the network configuration, it offers the choice of consoles which is a very unique feature.

Further, one issue which I have always faced with antivirus solutions is that they tend to occupy a lot of resources and critically slow down the machine. Thankfully, with Avast this is not the case. It takes moderate resources and there is no noticeable slow down of the machine. Also, the ability of Enterprise Administration Console to support mobile devices is good to have.

Likes Least

It is only effective when the devices are within the network. Once the device is out of the network, It does not provide a way to protect data located on stolen/lost devices.

Recommendations

A quality product with choice of different consoles depending on the network configuration and size of the network. Except a few misses, an smart product backed by a huge Avast threat detection network .

I would definitely recommend this to any organization which does not have servers on the network and just need endpoint protection.

Managing antivirus protection on networked PCs is not easy without an easy to manage centralized console. Avast understands this and has given the option of 2 consoles with this product. Smaller businesses can opt for easier to manage web based console while medium and large businesses can go for Enterprise Administration Console which is a bit complex and can take care of complex hierarchies. Understanding and catering to the requirements of the businesses for anti-malware protection makes this product different from others.

Likes Least

Too sensitive AutoSandbox mode. Also, support for Linux based and Mac OS X based devices missing.

Recommendations

Consoles have been designed considering users in mind. For me, it was a major plus point as the organization was small and we need basic anti- malware protection. Features like firewall and file server protection are missing but it again depends on business' requirements and budget.

Customer Service is worst I have seen. It keeps on causing problems whenever there is an OS upgrade or update or some feature stop working. And on the top of these issues, the worst you can expect is virtually non existent customer service.

The number of technologies it deploys to keep the network safe and functional is outstanding. Sandbox and Filerep are few among those.Also, it's vast user community network helps build one of the world's most advanced threat detection network.

Likes Least

Large companies need to allocate separate resources during it's deployment to remove the previously installed AV software from the network devices. It does not provide built in functionality for the same.Also, there is no support for Linux based devices.

Recommendations

Though it lacks on certain features and has a few downsides, it's worth mentioning that it's a value for money package at the price point at which comes. Small or big business who are looking just for highest level of network protection without additional feature like firewall and anti spam filter can certainly consider this as an option.

The feature of remote management helps save effort on individual deployment at all end points. Also, the ability to schedule PC scans and updating virus definitions when the workstations are not in use. This helps minimizing the productivity loss. Also, scans are fast as Avast makes use of Intelli-scans.

Likes Least

File system shield falters at times. It detects the virus but it fails to delete it or move to chest.Also, it is not very effective if the organization wants to strictly control data sharing.

Recommendations

It is certainly not the best Antivirus available in the market but it does serve the basic purpose especially when money is a criteria. If money is not a constraint, go for other better options (may be within Avast itself)

The product works like charm until you encounter an issue. Customer service is pretty bad if you have run into an issue and need an immediate support. Also, at times, the issues have been faced that mirrored VPS was up to date but the clients were not updating.

Recommendations

The most basic business protection which doesn't force you to pay for the feature you don't require. It deploys lot of cutting edge technologies to keep your network secure but at the same time if you need other features like Antispam and Firewall, you need to go for other options.

The big benefits of this software are, price, simplicity of management and deployment and Its cloud bases and reduces on site server costs.

Pros

We are a small school district and with me being the only IT person on site we need a simple solution that works well. Avast is simple to use and works well at a very competitive price point. It's also cloud based which helps reduce on site server costs. Customer support has always been helpfull.

Cons

The cloud managed portal is simple but there are a few things I would like see improved. Removing licences attached to broken computers isn't as simple as I would like also the task scheduler could do with more features such as add newly added devices to an existing group.

Pros

Ease of use and time it takes to roll out the software are big factors in choosing this Antivirus. Also, the price was much better for us than competitors.

Cons

We use to use Sophos which has a lot more features. This is a fairly basic antivirus so don't expect a lot of sophisticated features. You are trading price and simplicity for features.

I would recommend this to schools as it is a big cost saver.

It has a sandbox mode built into the pro version which is very helpful for testing out software if you do not trust it. That in combination with it's fast and effective scans makes it a good choice if you need an anti-virus.

I remember the days of dealing with virus after virus, popup after disgusting and embarrassing popup. When I started using AVG and Advanced System Care the viruses, malware and computer slowdowns have been virtually non-existent. However, after a few years of using AVG, they started popping up ads and limiting their service so a little bit of malware started creeping in so I moved to Avast (at the recommendation of a computer geek friend of mine).

Although I do get tired of Avast popping up upgrades to their paid version, it is acceptable because I am not paying for the service. The paid version does have a few tantalizing features but I am still not convinced I need them. The free version keeps viruses and malware from afflicting my surfing capabilities and that is the main reason I need this level of security.

Another important factor: We sell a CRM that also offers drip marketing capabilities. Some popular anti-virus products such as McAfee and Norton, will cause issues stopping emails from going out causing extreme frustration to our clients. I tell them to junk those programs and try Avast then their problems go away.

Pros

No hassles, no viruses, no wasting time.

Cons

Occasional popups trying to get you to upgrade to their paid version.

Advice to Others

If you're not techie, get it because it is very user friendly and easy to use.

Discovered this product as a free offer for personal use. I was impressed and we purchased a bunch of licenses. Works great and has never failed us! I personally have not used it on my business laptop recently but that's the one I recommend to friends and family!

Pros

The free version is a good way to discover. The full product is very complete and functional. Has proven very reliable and never failed any computer I've installed on.

Cons

Enterprise versions so far seem to still lag behind other players
