AVG CloudCare Software


 

AVG CloudCare is a cloud-based security suite designed for small and midsize businesses (SMBs) and the third party managed security service providers (MSSPs), who can use this tool to manage security on behalf of their clients.

AVG CloudCare includes a wide range of security features including antivirus, which protects PCs and laptops and detects and removes concealed threats. Files are scanned before employees download them and URLs are scanned while they search online, thus reducing the risk of attack.

Meanwhile, AVG CloudCare’s content filtering option enables businesses to monitor, and if necessary block, select websites employees visit to improve workplace efficiency. It also enables protection against spam and encryption for email, and pay-as-you-go cloud backup to defend against potential data loss.

Finally, AVG’s remote management tool enables an administrator to manage a company's security from anywhere, on any device. Highly scalable, AVG CloudCare is available as a year or two-year subscription with optional monthly add-ons.

AVG has a nice layout and simple to use interface. It is easy to deploy on each of our computers which saves time for our IT personnel.

Cons

The virus definitions don't appear to update as regularly as other programs on the market, and it leaves me concerned that something might slip through before the system updates it's definitions.

Pros

I have to admit, I was skeptical when our IT department said they were piloting AVG on my computer. However, I quickly learned that AVG is a solid anti-virus solution for small businesses. This was a breath of fresh air after dealing with several other protection programs and it used very little resources that I had to check and make sure it was running!

Cons

We did need to reach out to support on several occasions as the virus definitions failed to update. Ended up needing to manually force updates from our IT side.

great software to work and easy to use

Pros

offers a safe browsing in internet and secure file transfer among other protection. I can open emails or open files from usb and/or download files from the internet safe since AVG will protect me from downloading virus.

Cons

sometimes it takes time to boot the computer but is only one time a day, so not a big deal. The other cons is that depending on the file size it takes time to scan it but again is not a big deal.

Great product overall

Pros

Low cost and easy set-up. I used this product for a few years and it worked very well, i had no issues while using it.

Cons

Really the only con for AVG Internet security was that the cost went up after the first few years and larger names became competatively priced. I never had an issue, but ultimately didn't see it as a value.

Reliable protection for our company. Our IT provider moved us to this service from Kaspersky years ago and seems to do the job quite well. Doesnt seem to consume that much system resources and updates appear to be easy to rollout to users.

Not many that i can think of. Once and a while an upgrade will seem to get hung up on a user, but our IT group can easily enough get that corrected.

Pros

We switched over to AVG from another internet security platform to free up system resources when the software is running. AVG continues to prove that it's possible to protect your computer without slowing it down.

Cons

When scanning your system, it does take a long time (I guess due to the fact it uses less resources overall?). It's also pricier than its competitors.

In general, this antivirus is pretty easy to use and quick to setup. I really enjoy the level of security I receive from most potential threats for my business. This software has all the basic features you may need.

It tends to slow down the computer because it will be running in the background. It will also stop a few features that will be needed for other softwares, so you might have to turn it off sometimes.

If used as an interim anti virus software it can be great, I'm not a fan of the ads popping up asking you to buy the full version although I do understand why they have them there. All in all a good anti virus and gets the job done, paid or free version.

Pros

Good free version. Has high ratings on anti virus software benchmarks.

Cons

The free version over the last couple years has gotten a little ad heavy for me. And to get rid of them by paying for the software there are better cheaper alternatives.

AVG is the best antivirus and antimalware program that has brought security to my company. Previously, we were at risk. Other antivirus programs are not updated continuously, so they are vulnerable to threats that mutate with ease. AVG is updated often.

Pros

AVG is a powerful program that protects our computers against various types of threats. It is very easy to install it. It has an installation assistant that allows any user to install it. Its interface is very intuitive. It has a learning curve not very inclined which makes it possible to learn how to handle each of its functions in a matter of days. It is a fast and effective software

Cons

I think that the paid version has a somewhat high cost. And although it offers a basic and free version I think there are many functions on the outside.

I have been a long time user of AVG free antivirus. With the rise of data leakage and hacking recently, I think I should update my protection. Now I do not feel worry when I make transactions online.

Pros

The free version of AVG Internet Security was so good, so that I decided this software is worth a purchase. And I am not wrong, until now. It provides good protection against virus and phishing links. You can now be sure that your privacy is protected. One of the feature I love of AVG is that I can scan my system before OS starts.

Cons

The price is quite high compared to that of its competitors, such as Avast. The user settings can be confused sometimes for new users. It also does not include a password manager package.

It's a great tool which will protect your devices from malicious apps and web sites. It'll protect your email, web browse, USB and hard drives. Easy to install and config, but the protection is satisfactory. Regular updates are available to protect from latest malware.
