Avast is one of the largest security companies in the world using next-gen technologies to fight cyber attacks in real time. They’ve been around a long time, and are very well-known and respected. This article will discuss the Avast Endpoint Protection solution, which is perfect for small businesses.
Avast has managed to create a scalable cloud-based security infrastructure that sees everything that happens on the internet. We have a view into everything online, good and bad. But not in a creepy, NSA-type way. It gives Avast the unique advantage of being first to inspect and analyze potential threats. They prevent over 1.5 billion attacks every month, in fact. And when new malware is discovered, they can quickly deploy new security features to protect users. This is the strength behind Avast Endpoint Protection.
Avast simply has one of the best Endpoint Protection solutions you’ll use, and for some good reasons. This tool is affordable when you compare to the competition. Avast offers great features that ensure protection from both online and offline threats. It’s powered by next-gen antivirus, which ensures your network remains safe from advanced cyberattacks, no matter which devices are connected. But, antivirus alone is not enough to fully protect your business.
Avast Endpoint Protection
Endpoint security, also known as endpoint protection, refers to the protection of internet-connected devices such as PCs, workstations, servers and smartphones from cyber threats. Endpoints are vulnerable to a wide range of attacks. This means they are common targets of criminals. It is an integrated security solution that detects and blocks threats at device level. Typically this includes antivirus, anti-malware, data encryption, personal firewalls, intrusion prevention and data loss prevention.
All three versions of this (Basic, Advanced, and Premium) have Business Hub, from where you easily manage all your Avast security solutions in one place. Plus, there’s 7-layer deep Malware protection, Basic Remote Control, and Patch Management. Patch Management is very important because 57% of all data breaches are a result of ignoring software updates. So these features are all included in the Basic Avast Endpoint Protection.
Advanced will add Business AntiVirus Pro and Server Protection to guard your endpoints, keep your applications updated, and secure your servers. Lastly, Premium will give you Avast Business Antivirus Pro Plus and Privacy & identity protection.
Easy to use
Using the software is easy, especially when it comes to deep scanning and understanding scan reports. The admin interface is simple to navigate, and it makes managing several machines pretty simple. Easily set rules for even simpler management. It’s quite unobtrusive when running. It’s almost difficult to tell if it’s even running. But when the install is done everything is there and ready to roll. And client computers can be included in the hub with no problem. Install, configure, then forget it’s there. It will protect your installed computers against most everything.
The flexibility of the licensing is a pleasure, too. As one machine dies and you replace it simply uninstall Avast and use your license on the new machine.
To get up and running is a total snap. After purchasing, you will get a link to download your product or a link to the console. You’ll also get a license code. Just copy the code, because you’ll need to provide it when you open the product for the first time. Then you can adjust the security settings as you like. Once you install Endpoint Protection, you are fully protected. One product, three versions, lots of features.
