“The cloud interface is a big step up from the old days of local server-based antivirus management, particularly since our school uses Macs. I’ve migrated all of our management tools to web-based versions. Having Avast in the fold with everything else is nice.”

“When I started here, we had Norton and each computer had its own individual license. It was a nightmare. I switched all of the school’s computers to the free Avast consumer product. When I heard there was a free business solution and that it had a centralized management dashboard I knew we had to have it.”
