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 their new Avast Small Business Solutions. Avast Small Business Solutions include three levels of security. They are Avast Essential Business Security, Premium Business Security, and Ultimate Business Security.
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.This 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 our users. This is the strength behind Avast Small Business Solutions.
Avast Ultimate Business Security
Avast Ultimate Business Security features Anti-malware and antivirus protection with a built-in firewall to keep devices and data safe against cyberattacks. It protects your business against viruses, ransomware, spyware, zero-second threats, Wi-Fi network vulnerabilities, and more.
Wherever your employees are and whatever they’re doing online, it keeps devices safe. Avast does a good job blocking dangerous websites, and ensures all files and emails are malware-free. It prevents hackers from accessing your device, and more.
The Avast firewall monitors all network traffic between your PC and the outside world. It protects you from unauthorized communication and intrusions. Firewall can prevent sensitive data from leaving your PC and can block attempted intrusions by hackers.
Smart Scan scans for malware, outdated applications, unsafe settings, and suspicious add-ons. Plus, Mail Shield scans your incoming and outgoing email messages in real-time. It’s looking for malicious content such as viruses. Scanning only applies to messages sent or received using a mail management software. If you access your web email account via an internet browser, your PC is protected by other Avast shields.
There is also a Sandbox that allows you to browse the web or run an application in a completely isolated, safe environment. Web Shield scans data that is transferred when you browse the internet in real-time. It prevents malware, such as malicious scripts, from downloading and run on your PC. File Shield scans programs and files saved on your PC for malicious threats in real-time before allowing them to be opened, run, modified, or saved. If malware is detected, File Shield prevents the program or file from infecting your PC.
In addition, you get Wi-Fi Inspector, Security Browser Extension that scans sites for authenticity and blocks malicious ads, Data Shredder which allows you to irreversibly erase your files or drives so that there is no way for anyone to restore and misuse your data, and Rescue Disk, which enables you to scan your PC when your system is not running.
This significantly increases your chances of detecting and removing malware because the malware is unable to counteract. If you suspect your PC is infected with malware and all other antivirus scans were unable to resolve the issue, you can use Rescue Disk. These are not all of the features you get with Avast Small Business Solutions, by the way.
Avast’s online management platform, the Avast Business Hub, allows you to easily and install. Set up your protection, monitor devices, manage your subscriptions, and more from one place — anytime, anywhere. Or, you can opt for unmanaged. It’s just a do-it-yourself option. It’s ideal for small offices that do not need management capabilities. Users can adjust device settings according to their preferences and maintain complete control of their data.
What does Ultimate have that Premium and Essential don’t?
In addition to everything mentioned so far, Premium has Privacy Protection. That’s Avast’s built-in VPN that encrypts your data and secures your internet connection when using public Wi-Fi networks. It also features Webcam Protection that prevents applications and malware from accessing your PC’s webcam without your consent. It also has Password Protection that secures your browser-stored passwords from theft.
On top of all this, Ultimate has a cool Patch Management feature that automatically fixes vulnerabilities on your software and third-party applications that are susceptible to cyberattacks.
Avast Ultimate Business Security keeps your business, customer, and personal data safe. Their firewall and network inspection tools block attempted intrusions by hackers and prevent sensitive data from leaving your employee’s PCs. Avast is an easy-to-use, affordable, and award-winning cybersecurity solution for small and growing businesses.
