Cloud Antivirus

Protect multiple devices from anywhere with our cloud-based antivirus solutions.

What is cloud antivirus?

What is cloud antivirus?

Cloud-based antivirus moves antivirus workloads from an individual's computer to a cloud-based server that contains a comprehensive and complete antivirus suite. By having antivirus in the cloud, individual computers won't get slowed down by hosting large antivirus software solutions.

What is Avast Business Cloud Managed Antivirus?

Avast Business Cloud Managed Antivirus protects all devices in a business’ network from the cloud, rather than slowing down individual devices with antivirus software. Avast Business Managed Antivirus can be deployed and managed via either the Avast Business Management Console or CloudCare. Both managed security platforms help improve security by providing immediate alerts and continuous monitoring. The Management Console is geared more toward smaller businesses whereas CloudCare includes additional security services and features suited more for medium-sized businesses and IT service providers.

Does Avast Business Cloud Managed Antivirus work across multiple devices?

Our cloud-based antivirus for business works across multiple devices. You can manage your devices and network from anywhere, all you need is an internet connection and your login information for the Management Console or CloudCare. Activating each new device after installation prevents unknown devices from being added to your console automatically. You can always remove any unfamiliar devices.

How much does Avast Business Cloud Managed Antivirus cost?

There are three levels of protection: Antivirus ($174.96 per device, per year), Antivirus Pro ($224.96) and Antivirus Pro Plus ($269.96). All cloud antivirus software comes with features such as firewall, email shield, and anti-spam. Pro and Pro Plus include server protection and data shredder, which permanently deletes files by overwriting them several times with random data. Only Pro Plus has Secureline VPN, password protection, webcam shield, and browser clean up.

How do I install Avast Business Cloud Managed Antivirus?

To deploy managed antivirus from the Management Console, simply go to Avast Business Endpoint Protection and choose to buy or try one of the three antivirus plans: Antivirus, Antivirus Pro, or Antivirus Pro Plus. You will then be taken to the Management Console dashboard where you can see an overview of your network status, review your device settings, and then deploy the installer to your devices. The final step is to activate your new devices.

Within CloudCare, the only managed antivirus option is Antivirus Pro Plus, which provides complete device, data, and identity protection. To get started, go to the CloudCare page and sign up for a free trial. An Avast Business representative will contact you to review the platform, create your account, and send you an email with your login information.

Benefits of cloud-based antivirus solutions

Get Secure Web Gateway in CloudCare

Advanced virus detection in real time

If devices have undetected viruses or use unsecured networks, they could infect the business’ network and other endpoints. A traditional endpoint solution would require a user to download the software onto their device. However, with cloud-based solutions this can be done remotely, ensuring malware like ransomware and viruses are stopped before they have access to a business’ network. Scanning and virus signature updates are also done automatically in real-time so there is no gap in protection.

Get Secure Web Gateway in CloudCare

Low footprint solution

Traditional antivirus software that sits on the device can significantly slow down individual machines – especially when updating. These solutions also put the responsibility on the individual to update their machines, which many avoid because it’s time consuming and can impact their productivity. However, failure to update antivirus software can put the whole business at risk. Cloud-based antivirus software eliminates these issues by hosting the software in the cloud.

Get Secure Web Gateway in CloudCare

Multi-device protection from one central server

Cloud-based antivirus software improves efficiency and protection as it can be centrally managed. Both Cloud Management Console and CloudCare include the ability to add new devices, remove others, and block access to rogue or suspicious devices. By having one central platform, businesses can ensure antivirus programs are always up to date. IT teams don’t have to worry about downloading the latest virus definitions when performing a scan as cloud-based antivirus is automatically updated.
