Avast Endpoint Protection Suite is an antivirus solution for businesses looking to protect both endpoint workstations and file servers. It offers a central management component, which comes in two variants: Small Office Administration, for basic networks and Enterprise Administration, for complex networks. The administrator can schedule scans, patch updates and tasks during the off hours or when employees are away from their PCs, so productivity is not affected by maintenance requirements.
Avast Endpoint Protection Suite also provides businesses with constantly streaming antivirus updates, and utilizes data gathered from Avast’s threat detection network, which receives information gathered from millions of computers around the world.
Avast Endpoint Protection Suite also goes beyond traditional, signature-based antivirus, and using Avast’s Behavior Shield analyzes processes that are running on systems for unusual behavior. Meanwhile, attacks can be isolated and contained in the virtual environment of the Avast Sandbox.
Available as an on-premise solution, Avast Endpoint Protection Suite is suited for Windows-based systems.

One of the things I’ve always loved deeply about all versions of Avast is its 30-day free trial, where you can see if it’s the solution to your problems, both individual and corporate.
The avast suite was the first antivirus model I got and used on my computer, since my childhood, which I just switched to solutions that I thought were more robust and efficient.
I really like the fact that avast has automatic solutions to detect threats that lurk around the network, so that you can browse smoothly, without worrying too much about problems (if you surf casually, of course). The built-in VPN is very interesting and is a very smart solution, helping you strongly to stay hidden at desired times.
Although I liked Avast and its corporate solution very much, I believe that there are solutions in similar price ranges that have won me much more than him, so I say easily: it is not a perfect antivirus, but I guarantee that if you have a small company, or just for you, Avast is a cost-effective solution.
1 - Much more customizable than other antiviruses in the same price range.
2 - Detects a reasonable number of threats.
3 - The program's firewall is exceptional in its detection.
4 - Its compatible with Mac OS, Windows and Windows Server (best value I found for server protection solution).
5 - Three different types of protection, so you can choose the one that best fits your use and your company.
1 - Some more advanced threats were not detected, which started to worry me.
2 - Although it protects you (sometimes try to protect) from spam and other threats, the program opens several pop-ups, visually polluting your desktop a little.
3 - Strong problem to protect against some types of spam.
4 - The difference between the three versions: Regular, Pro and Pro Plus, are not so significant to justify the price difference between them, being that it would be more interesting to have only a more robust version.

Avast .. you got my back 😁
Avast is really the best anti virus and malware software i have ever used.
It is very easy to use and very effective in protection of your PC. I'm using the business version at home and the internet security version for home PC.
Nothing much except for few false positive alarms for some files.

Central Management. Don't need to much CPU power. Easy to install.
Automatic Update also reboots 24x7 servers without warning. Reboot should be scheduled separately.
Management Console information mostly outdated or delayed.
No responsive design, can't even quick check a virus found, need to go to a computer to see what it is.
GPO based MSI rollout not work for most use cases.
Can't change the Central Management. We migrated from On-Premises installation to Cloud.
Had to uninstall AVAST everywhere and install everything again. REALLY BAD.

I deal with proprietary information so security is required and must be adequate.
The ease of use once installed. The product is user friendly.
Tried to load on an older laptop and kept crashing the computer. Tech support had to load it one file at at time.

As we work with foreign investors, we deal with a lot of client information, of which most are confidential. Avast has helped us deliver our best but keeping such data safe and secure.
Avast Business Antivirus Pro Plus provides for a full package protection with its protection, privacy and performance tools such as virus scan, ransomware shield, VPN protection and password manager features.
Another thing I love about this software is its user oriented features such as browser clean up and its constant daily update.
With all its perks, Avast also has its drawbacks. One, while scanning the entire system Avast tends to slow down the performance of the device. Two, Avast is a very skeptical antivirus that it blocks legitimate websites and at times tends to delete files from the computer or the USB drive.
