AVG Internet Security Review

One good experience I can describe with AVG Internet Security Business Edition is the effective protection it provides against threats. The software includes multiple layers of protection, including real-time antivirus, firewall, and web protection, to keep devices and networks safe from cyber attacks. It also includes features such as email and web protection to prevent employees from accessing malicious websites or downloading infected files.

Some of the key features of AVG Internet Security Business Edition include: Advanced antivirus protection: AVG Internet Security Business Edition uses advanced technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence to detect and block viruses, malware, and other online threats. Email protection: The software includes email protection to help prevent the spread of malware and other threats through email attachments and links. Network protection: AVG Internet Security Business Edition includes a firewall to protect your business's network from external threats, as well as a network scanner to identify and fix vulnerabilities. Web protection: The software includes a web shield to protect against malicious websites and a link scanner to check links for safety before you click on them.

CONS

There are a few potential disadvantages to using AVG Internet Security Business Edition: Cost: Depending on the number of devices you need to protect, the cost of a business-grade internet security solution like AVG Internet Security Business Edition can be quite high. Complexity: Business-grade internet security solutions tend to be more complex than consumer-grade solutions, which can make them difficult to set up and manage. Performance impact: Some users have reported that internet security software like AVG can have a negative impact on their device's performance, particularly on older or less powerful devices. False positives: Internet security software can sometimes flag legitimate files or websites as threats, which can be frustrating for users. Limited coverage: AVG Internet Security Business Edition is primarily designed to protect against malware and other threats that are transmitted over the internet. It may not offer protection against other types of threats, such as physical device theft or damage.It's important to carefully consider the pros and cons of any internet security solution before deciding whether it's the right fit for your business.

Reason for choosing AVG Internet Security Business Edition

AVG Internet Security Business Edition is a reliable and effective security solution for businesses and organizations looking to protect their devices and networks from cyber threats.

It's good but a little pricey

This is one of those solutions that is working well for small and medium businesses where maybe they just need something that is going to do the job well enough and don't have the skills or finance to have something with more options and features set-up. At least this is where I have seen the value of it. It sets up easily isn't too much of a hassle in the background and if you're just using standard software then there's unlikely to be any need for anything more than AVG for business. If the price is manageable, then it's a good solution.

PROS

AVG provides all the familiar options for customising the "when where and how" for scanning the incoming and outgoings from a business, and these are handled well. However the most noticeably good thing for us when we replaced our previous protection was the increase in responsiveness for our slightly aging machines. AVG seems to have gotten back to being relatively lightweight which is great!

CONS

I don't like the console, it's a bit difficult to navigate and some unintuitive buttons and options for controlling and containing things. Mostly these are fine and may even serve to make it difficult to do anything particularly dangerous or silly without knowing what you are doing but they can act like a hurdle if you do want to tinker around more than normal. Also we hated the aggressiveness of advertising in the free version.

Reason for choosing AVG Internet Security Business Edition

It was a known name and while the console is frustrating to use and navigate, for the people I was installing it with it was still better than the alternatives.

Reasons for switching to AVG Internet Security Business Edition

Norton was incredibly frustrating in terms of system resource use and pop up notifications

Locks down your system

Overall, I have mixed feelings about AVG. On one hand we haven't had any breeches of data and on the other hand it has made life difficult every time there is an update making sure we have the exceptions set properly to allow our software to work properly. You would think for the price you have to pay they would account for such things but they simply don't.

PROS

Protects your system from intruders, constantly updated, keeps up with the latest viruses and threats.

CONS

The software locks down your system a little too well. We use other software that requires a hardware key that has to constantly connect to the company to prevent piracy. The AVG software updated and started blocking all the authentications for our software and we lost a whole day and a half of production because we couldn't get it to communicate because AVG kept blocking it. Customer service kept playing the blame game saying it was the other company who was responsible.

Recommended for both computer and mobile devices

With a good system, it's a good software to have or consider having. It has helped me remove/clean my devices in just one click probably could have cost me more to reset should have been an attack without antivirus.

PROS

The Antivirus is easy to install and implement as allows you to select what you want and just click next. it helps you protect your devices in critical moments. I'd say prevention is better than cure don't wait to be attacked

CONS

Sometimes it can slow down the system or notifications reminding you to pay can be annoying. It could be done better to make customers feel easier, not pressurized to make payment.

Reason for choosing AVG Internet Security Business Edition

it's more user friendly
