Self-monitoring, easy to deploy, and stable

Pros and Cons

  • "The ease of deployment and the command center that they have are the most valuable. It is basically self-monitoring. It doesn't require that much tinkering after you deploy or install."
  • "It could have a 10,000-feet overview of the whole infrastructure because the software is easily installable on the whole infrastructure and not just the infrastructure, but also the workstation themselves. I would love to have a 360 view of the whole network and basically see from where a test is coming, and if there is an instance in the cloud that is actually misbehaving or if there is a workstation that is infected and stuff like that. It can also have some kind of AI to detect all those things and then cut off the connection from that machine. In Cortex, you can link the logs, reports, and all that stuff. You can also see the full picture of when it happened, and you can trace it back all the way to a file or something else. I would like to see similar functionality in Avast Business Endpoint Protection."

What is our primary use case?

We have a bunch of instances in production and Dev infrastructure. We use it to protect Linux boxes, PCs, and Macs. We are using the latest version.

How has it helped my organization?

We didn't use any similar solution before, and we did not suffer from any attacks previously. We were lucky that we did not have any attacks, and we didn't suffer from anything.

We got it more for compliance. To be compliant, you have to have endpoint protection. Now that we have this solution, we still haven't detected anything. Overall, the employee workforce is kind of at top of their game regarding phishing attacks, but again, you cannot always be a hundred percent on it. So far, we didn't have anything that Avast Business Endpoint Protection would actually catch.

What is most valuable?

The ease of deployment and the command center that they have are the most valuable. It is basically self-monitoring. It doesn't require that much tinkering after you deploy or install.

What needs improvement?

It could have a 10,000-feet overview of the whole infrastructure because the software is easily installable on the whole infrastructure and not just the infrastructure, but also the workstation themselves. I would love to have a 360 view of the whole network and basically see from where a test is coming, and if there is an instance in the cloud that is actually misbehaving or if there is a workstation that is infected and stuff like that. It can also have some kind of AI to detect all those things and then cut off the connection from that machine.

In Cortex, you can link the logs, reports, and all that stuff. You can also see the full picture of when it happened, and you can trace it back all the way to a file or something else. I would like to see similar functionality in Avast Business Endpoint Protection.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using it since August, that is, for about four months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable. There are no bugs or glitches.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. You have to purchase licenses. One thing that we have is that the instances are mostly kind of static. Once they go up, they remain for at least a year or something like that. Therefore, we didn't have a case where you have a license just hanging there. I don't know if they offer any kind of flexible amount, pool, or something like that.

It is being used throughout the company. We have 40 people. It is used to protect every personal computer and the whole production and developer infrastructure.

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't used their technical support so far.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used Norton 360 previously in a different company. From a resource standpoint, it is not resource-intensive like Norton.

We actually wanted to go with Norton 360 in my current company, but we could not get hold of them, and we could not purchase. That's the worst experience that we had. We wanted to give them money, but they couldn't be reached to actually schedule.

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is $75 per license for a year. There are no additional costs.

What other advice do I have?

It is pretty much straightforward to set up. Installation and updates are the only two steps. If you're setting up your company from scratch in the beginning, then I would suggest to buy it and then basically get it installed on every image. For a bigger company or for each personal computer or workstation, you can install it as an image. It will then already be there, and you don't have to bother with installing it later. For your cloud infrastructure, if you have an AMI, AWS, or any kind of image, that image should be updated with that software. The only thing that you need to change is the license.

I would rate Avast Business Endpoint Protection a nine out of ten. For a ten, it should have a 360 kind of view of the whole organization or the whole infrastructure.

Stable, scalable, easy to use and easy to install, but the security could be better for the free version

Pros and Cons

  • "It warns you if there is a threat and it's perfect because it runs in the background and doesn't interfere with anything."
  • "I would like to see better protection and more spyware included with the free version."

What is our primary use case?

I use this solution to protect against viruses.

How has it helped my organization?

N/A

What is most valuable?

It's easy to use.

It warns you if there is a threat and it's perfect because it runs in the background and doesn't interfere with anything. As a free product, it is top of its class, with this solution installed I am not concerned about threats to my PC.

Overall, it's really good.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better protection. That's what you want from an antivirus solution.

Maybe with the paid version, you get more but for the free version, it could be limited.

I would like to see better protection such as prevention from hacker attacks and fake websites.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Avast Free Endpoint Protection for a couple of years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution. It just runs in the background with no problem. I have never had an instance where it has interfered with the normally running of my PC.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Yes, I believe that it is very scalable and is suitable for individuals and organisations.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not had to contact technical support as the product is stable and does what it is designed for, no frills, just good protection.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, I have used McAfee. McAfee is really good, but you only get a trial period, and then you need to pay. I had to reinstall it on my computer recently, and McAfee comes up.

I'm on the one-month free subscription but it does get irritating because it keeps popping up, wanting me to pay for it.

How was the initial setup?

The installation is easy. It takes less than five minutes to download and install.

What about the implementation team?

I completed the installation myself via website download.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I am using the free version.

I know that if you pay for it, you get better protection such as hiding your pc behind firewalls, hacker threats, data protection and webcam shielding.

What other advice do I have?

I would absolutely recommend this solution and I have recommended it to others

I would rate Avast Free Endpoint Protection a ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
