Admin & Client Friendly

Antivirus protection for my staff's computers which are customer facing. we take customers hard drives, flash drives and other storage devices to either pull information or add information and as such opens our systems to threats.

Pros

The ability to scan and use the results to reference the database of threats, look for potential fixes and have this done in a timely manner is great.

Cons

The ability to work properly with varying firewalls and network security tools.... there needs to be more focus in integrated use.

Reasons for Choosing Avira Antivirus for Small Business

There were many features but primarily, the price and ease of use for my employees.

Avira, one of the most traditional ways for your cybernetic safety!

Avira Antivirus Server provides a good and reliable way of getting protected from virus and other similar malwares. Avira is traditionally connected to the Avira Rescue CD utilization, so it might be a little bit confusing for domestic users on how to use such feature properly. I can say from experience that Avira provides a good protection when I had used only the free software to execute a routinely scan every month in my computer and remove any malicious threat. This software is one that I feel enough confidence to use again in my computer due to the consistent results and efficience for personal computer data.

Pros

Reliable to use and provides what promises.

Cons

It is a little bit confusing and hard to use for people that do not use personal computers that often.

Reasons for Switching to Avira Antivirus for Small Business

It was a free trial of AVG and I was in need of trying a new software for my personal security.

Avira Antivirus a good choice

In general, it is good and useful antivirus software. I use it now privately and in business over 10 years . Especially going into Asia there are so many virus emails Avira always detected all of them.

Pros

It easy detects viruses and it updates frequently. I like that it does not occupy all of my memory on the computer. Even the free version is really good. But I always upgrade as the price is ok and not too expensive good value.

Cons

I do not like the inbuilt VPN. It would be ok if it would be a good quality VPN but it is so slow that sites take ages to open especially when you travel. The auto-update function from files on your computer counteracts with Microsoft updates.

Reasons for Choosing Avira Antivirus for Small Business

Because I use it on my private computer for over 10 years and I am very happy with the quality and service. There is always room for improvement.

Reasons for Switching to Avira Antivirus for Small Business

Because it does not do the job for me when travelling. My computer had every time another bug because of not detecting the virus.

Good protection for a small organization

Good app for a small organization who does not require high security.

Pros

Easy to Configure and use. Database updates is frequent and very good. Less memory consumption and scans fast. Catches malicious traffic on the endpoint's network ports. Protection works well in offline mode or without updates. Value for money.

Cons

Zero day attack protection could be improved by using some AI based detection of malicious activity both on the network and while monitoring files, to prevent ransomware damage. Gets incompatible if with other security applications.

Protection Designed for Small Organization

Overall Avira gives what it promises, Sometimes it is not a complete security system for PCs. Sometimes Avira is not able to detect viruses from a file, this results in any PC formatting and reinstall the operating system.

Pros

Avira Antivirus is specially designed for a small-sized organization that protects systems from threats. It scans every file for viruses, Trojans etc. It has its own cloud-based intelligence for scanning threats.

Cons

It can not completely detect or clean all kind of viruses from files. Sometimes other antiviruses can able to detect viruses on that file that is already scanned by Avira.

Avira provides best data security package

It works well, keep your device free of viruses and malware. Its premium version is a little bit expensive but your device security from viruses is more important than cost.

Pros

When we talk about viruses and malware handling, there are a lot of antivirus packages, which look after your device. Avira is one of them, which always protects your precious data from infection. your device will run smoothly as infectious files will be removed through this handy tool. I have personally experienced some antivirus software, which slows down your device but not in the case of Avira. You always feel better and comfortable with this tool, because it will work quietly and does not decelerate your speed of work by making your device slow.

Cons

Beware of your important files and keep them back up always, otherwise, if infected, this antivirus will remove them and clean your device so your important data will be lost. Complete data security package is available in the premium version, not in the free version. It means for the complete security of your device, you will have to pay its cost.

Extremely difficult to remove

Subscribed to another Antivirus program that was better rated and less expensive than Avira so I tried to remove it from 3 computers. Unfortunately it was a horrible experience. As soon as I would let my very trusted software removal program delete Avira, it would automatically reinstall itself. I had to remove and shut down my computers at least 3 times before my uninstaller program finally somehow removed all traces of Avira. The next day, I get an email from Avira offering a 20% discount to reinstall the program. Never again will I go through this aggravation

Pros

It works well and have used it for many years. The program is easy to use and is quite comprehensive.

Cons

Extremely difficult to remove the program from any computer once it's installed. I used a very well known and very reliable program that uninstalls just about any software (including those of dominant software developers), but the Avira program just kept reinstalling itself over and over again after the uninstalls.

Protect your PC with Avira

In my experience Avira is the best antivirus software for any kind of threats. It is really simple and updates come constantly.

Pros

Avira is my favorite antivirus software because it has very simple interface and high security level to my devices. It has an ability to identify many types of malwares and other threats, also We can use it both on Windows and Android devices. Avira does not take much more RAM, Because of that my laptop and smartphone run very smoothly.

Cons

Well, sometimes it takes much more time to run software when we turned on laptop, also it removes some programs as dangerous but really there are no any dangerous files, at that time we have to give permission manually to run those programs.

Great security and antivirus software

It is easy and simple, the common user does not need more than this security software.

Pros

It is a light and robust application at the same time, simple and easy to use. It does not consume the processor like other applications I have used.

Cons

Since you are infected, sometimes it does not clean the virus and it is best to format the computer.

Resolute options for any small business

Pros

I chose Avira for my small business after reading the reviews posted online and on this very site, Software Advice, and I could not be happier with my decision. I feel confident in the security of my files and sensitive client information with Avira and all of its tools at my disposal. I could not ask for a better value or service in today's era of for cyber security.

Cons

The only con I have for Avira Business Security Suite is the customer support system. I had an issue setting up the program on one of our workstations and it took over a half an hour to get someone on the phone who could actually help me.

Free, simple and objective

It is a very good antivirus. Free, fast, simple, it protects your computer well without compromising performance. I recommend!

Pros

One of the best free software options. It protects against viruses and any type of malware. This antivirus protects in real time and does a complete scan of the system. Suspicious files are quarantined.

Cons

So far everything is perfect with the free version I use. Excellent performance and the sweep running in the background does not worsen the computer's performance. My opinion is that the free version could have protection for email.

Reasons for Switching to Avira Antivirus for Small Business

I wanted to test an antivirus that would not slow my computer.

Good Quality and Effective Antivirus

Avira is free antivirus for everyone.

Pros

Good quality for a free antivirus which is very effective when it comes to protection and scanning or cleaning all the trash and cache.

Cons

Because the software is free, there is alot of ads that always popping and to be honest its annoying. But you can enjoy the perks of having a good quality and free antivirus.

One of the Best Antivirus Products I've Used!

Always positive and to this day one of the ones I would recommend I would ask.

Pros

When I had used the Avira PRO software for my last laptop, it always kep everything organized when I wanted to look into what it covered, caught, or informed me of was always clear. I liked that. I always felt confident with it.

Cons

The closest thing to an issue was how much it costs, at least for me. It would be great to have it with the same coverage with a bit more affordability.

Reasons for Switching to Avira Antivirus for Small Business

Recommended at the time by the sales representative that applied it to a bundle with my laptop. It was affordable and highly recommended so I gave it a try.

Avira Small Business Security Suite has a good collection of features beyond other antivirus offers.

Pros

The password manager and malicious URL blocking they are great for users who constantly use the browsers. Scanning is pretty fast.

Cons

The price may be too high for some users. It may crash when it's used along windows defender. No outlook integration to scan the attachments of other email providers.

Complete solution pack

The experience was good untill It started showing popup. Overall Virus protection is good. vpn is good I like Gaming Mode also. So no hate comments

Pros

Avira Antivirus is the Complete pack of all antivirus related security. It comes with antivirus, firewell and VPN too. The thing i like most is it's VPN which connects you to proxy server in seconds and unblock all the blocked site. Using it since college

Cons

The Ads popup. I hate even for purchased version they keep showing ads and you can't disable it. That's why I switched to norton later

Sound like a signature scanner...

Pros

The feature list is good, the UI is clean, the product seems legit.

Cons

All features are so basic that you can't really use it. The firewall is only a Windows Firewall Configurator. The SPAM filter only scan non-encrypted IMAP/POP traffic, no Outlook integration to scan your GMail. Bad virus detection in my case.

My experience has not been entirely pleasant with the program.

High control of all your data.

Pros

the software is functional and has a good division of its functions with the different filters, the security against deactivation forsoza of the program is very good. I would recommend this program since the benefit is good for its cost.

Cons

I did not like the filter "avira protection in real time" because as a gamer I had problems with my games due to this filter, an example is the case of "dota 2" updates through "steam", the software is safe and recognized, in the same way every time I have an update or download of a game, all the incoming and outgoing connection goes through that filter that causes complications and a latency that I can not control properly with programs dedicated to connection control in an efficient way . As a gamer, I would not recommend this product.

It protects, but not all

Pros

I have been using avira for quite some time now, and I have installed it on several laptops (my own and friends') and it has always worked quite well. As advantages I can say that: 1.- Its installation process is quite simple. 2.- It can be installed in a mid-range computer without any problem since it usually does not use so many resources, except when it is being updated. 3.- Its analysis system is quite fast and it has always worked well for me to be able to clean pendrives, HH and my own laptop from dangerous elements. 4.- Avira gives you control over your system allowing you to enable or disable some extra functions that allow you to provide a higher level of protection (safe shopping, home guard, vpn, password manager, among others) 5.- It has a help system to improve the speed and stability of the system 6.- It provides a vpn to be able to navigate in a safe way and avoid so that the sites track your data. 7.- And obviously you can enable the blocking function of pages potentially unsafe or harmful to the system.

Cons

although, I usually recommend avira, I always clarify something very important, and that is that the real-time detection system is somewhat deficient, so it does not always manage to recognize or block all the threats that swarm through the web and much less the threats that can be downloaded. If you are one of the users who browse all the sites and download a thousand things without knowing the real origin, maybe you should look for a much more powerful antivirus that detects everything and has an advanced heuristic function.
