Certified, fast, and light on system resources

Built upon our certified and award-winning antivirus engine, AVAST Endpoint Protection provides not only strong protection but also web-based central management/updating, remote installation, real-time security alerts, scheduled automatic scanning, and more.

Built-in firewall and antispam to protect your sensitive data

All the essential protection your business needs is now available in one easy-to-use package – including strong firewall and antispam protection to keep your network safe and efficient.

Benefit from real-time protection

Your database will be continuously updated with the latest definitions in real-time via a connection to the AVAST Virus Lab, rather than needing to wait for a traditional database update.

Save time and costs with remote management

Install and update remotely, to save both time and costs associated with traditional deployment at individual endpoints. For greater flexibility, we offer two management console options – our simple Small Office Administration for basic networks or our robust Enterprise Administration for complex networks.

Maximize productivity

Schedule scans, updates, and tasks for when employees don’t need to use their PCs, to ensure that work time isn’t slowed by maintenance. Maintaining your business security has never been more intuitive, worry-free, and efficient.

New User Interface (UI)

The avast! UI has been redesigned to keep up with modern navigation styles.

New New Remote Assistance

The Remote Assistance feature allows avast! users to connect and share desktops with each other. This may be useful for technical support as well as for general administrative purpose.

New Windows 8 compatible

avast! version 7 was the first third-party antivirus software to gain Windows 8 certification, and with avast! 8 we continue our support of the latest Windows platform.

Improved Antivirus and anti-spyware engine

Our award-winning scanning engine protects against viruses, spyware, and other malicious agents, now with a new algorithm that is based on machine learning, which can process new-virus data in milliseconds.

Improved Streaming, real-time virus database updates

Each virus signature comes to you in real-time via connection to the AVAST Virus Lab cloud, rather than needing to wait for a traditional virus-database update. Your database will be continuously updated with latest definitions.

Improved File reputation system

Now with more than a billion unique files in our cloud, avast! FileRep lets you know whether a file is safe before you open it – determined in part by how many people have the file and how new the file is. The technology is also used internally, to help the scanning engine make more intelligent decisions.

Improved Silent Firewall

Our firewall stops hackers, using heuristic and behavioral analysis and a white list of safe applications. It offers improved logging for better details/stats, and supports both IPv4 (standard) and new IPv6 networks.

Improved Antispam

Comprehensive spam and phishing filter, which works also as a plug-in to MS Outlook and a generic POP3/IMAP4 proxy for other email clients – now with better reporting functionality.

Improved Behavior Shield

Our Behavior Shield determines – with greater precision – whether any running processes are displaying any unusual behavior.

Improved avast! Sandbox

Provides an extra layer of security for you to run your applications in a virtual environment – where any attacks are thus contained instead of attacking your real PC.

Web-based console

Easy to use dashboard lists all current problems and recommended solutions.

Easy-to-navigate graphical user interface (GUI)

Offers a user-friendly central window to all program functions.

Remote installation and updates

Saves both time and costs associated with traditional deployment at individual end points.

Auto-discovery of new/unprotected (or ‘rogue’) PCs

Notifies you when potentially unprotected/harmful PCs connect to your company network.

Comprehensive reporting

Flexible selection of what information gets reported and how often.

Built for simplicity

Easy to use, even for people who are not IT experts.

Ability to schedule/run scanning jobs

Schedule scans to run at night or whenever you don‘t need to use your PC.

Real-time alerts

In the event of infection or other unauthorized activity, the central console receives immediate real-time alerts.

Hierarchy

avast! Enterprise Administration maintains managed devices in a tree structure, which can be based on, for example, the geographical or organizational structure of the network. This makes it possible also to assign appropriate administration access rights and policies. The tree can be built automatically or imported from a text file.

Discovery / Remote deployment

avast! Enterprise Administration enables unattended, remote deployment of avast! antivirus software, even spanning multiple domains. To reduce the potential for security breaches, it also enables discovery of new or 'rogue' machines on the company network.

Reporting

avast! Enterprise Administration offers a wide range of graphical and tabular reports, which can be either generated and viewed directly in the Administration Console, or exported and saved in a variety of formats (e.g. PDF, HTML, DOC). Reporting can be scheduled daily, weekly, or whatever makes the most sense.

Alerting

avast! Enterprise Administration notifies, via various customizable alerting methods, about the activity on your network. Set up notifications via email (using SMTP or MAPI), Windows network pop-up messages, or even have them sent to a network printer.

Automatic Updates

avast! Enterprise Administration updates incrementally, with only new data downloaded, to greatly reduce transfer time and bandwidth requirements. Any number of mirror servers can be set up to work in a hierarchy.

Security

avast! Enterprise Administration complies with company security policies by allowing particular access rights to users and/or user groups. Each item (e.g. task, computer, event, computer group) has an access control list, with visibility set by the main administrator(s). All communications to the console are encrypted with SSL protocol and identified via a digital certificate.

Support for notebook users

avast! Enterprise Administration supports mobile devices, whose users connect almost randomly to the company network and often try to bypass restrictions set by the administrators. Initiated by POP client, updates are automatically downloaded and applied whenever a device connects to the company network – even if via VPN or over the internet.

1. On 8 April 2014, Microsoft stops support for Internet Explorer browsers running on Windows XP. This will put your computer and data, such as credit card and online banking details, at greater risk to hackers and malware.

2. Several browser alternatives exist, but we at AVAST use and recommend Chrome, as we find it to be the most-secure option available.
