Business antivirus have evolved beyond recognition within the last few years, matching the bewildering array of ever-changing cyber threats they have to fight.
Avast’s Business Antivirus Pro is TechRadar’s #1 Business Antivirus - here's just a few reasons why this is the case.
1. It is now cheaper than ever, and you can save even more
TechRadar readers can get an exclusive 35 percent discount off the suggested retail price of our award winning Avast Business Antivirus Pro Plus. At $48.75 per user with an annual subscription, it is a fantastic bargain and you can save by opting for a multi-year subscription and for multi users. A 200-user, 3-year package, for example, will cost you less than $19 per user per annum. Plus you can try the whole package with a 30-day free trial.
2. There’s a VPN included
A VPN allows you to secure your employee’s connection to any website via encryption. This is particularly useful when using public Wi-Fi in hotels and airports and while it doesn’t eliminate the threat of cybercriminals spying on your personal data, it does mitigate the risk significantly. SecureLine VPN is Avast’s solution and is included free of charge.
3. It has powerful management features
With Avast Business management console, system administrators can acquire, deploy and manage endpoint protection licenses remotely while Patch Management identifies critical vulnerabilities in third-party applications and makes it easy to roll out pre-tested patches from the Avast Business Cloud Management Console to target devices.
4. Meet the password manager
A growing number of applications and accounts means more passwords for employees to memorize. Fortunately, there’s a more convenient and secure option: store login details in Avast’s password manager, behind one solid master password. You can also generate new, safer passwords, autofill saved ones and sync them between devices.
5. Sharepoint protection as standard
Microsoft’s Sharepoint is one of the most popular ways across businesses of all sizes to store, organize and share company data. Avast users can be sure that every file on Sharepoint is safe and malware-free with Sharepoint protection, a plugin that will scan every single file that is uploaded and downloaded. Avast Sharepoint is developed exclusively for Windows Server operating systems.
6. The shield quintet
Avast integrates five shield-like features: webcam shield, email shield, web shield, behavior shield and file shield. All of them are designed to protect the client machine they run on through a variety of methods; nothing revolutionary, just sheer common sense and a pinch of artificial intelligence. However, this back-to-basics approach means that no (virtual) stones are left unturned and every nook and cranny of your operating system is covered.
