What is the difference between personal and business antivirus software?
While both types of antivirus are used to help prevent cyberattacks, there are significant differences between the software used for personal antivirus and commercial antivirus.
Personal cybersecurity focuses on protecting individual devices, while business antivirus must protect a company’s network - where individual devices are referred to as endpoints.
For personal protection, check out Avast Free Antivirus.

Is my system's built-in antivirus enough?
Built-in antivirus software has improved greatly over recent years, but should not be used on its own – it does not include the advanced security and online privacy features required for business security.
What is Patch Management?
One of the most important security measures for business users is to ensure that all devices connected to your network are running the latest version of any software and have security patches applied as soon as they are available.
For a small or medium-sized business, the concern is that individuals may not update devices correctly or promptly, creating weak points in your network’s defenses. For larger companies, the same is true but with many more devices to manage.
Patch Management automates this process, scanning connected devices, installing missing patches, and monitoring the system for new updates – simplifying the update process and reducing the hours and cost of reviewing each device manually. Patch Management is included as part of Avast Ultimate Business Security.
Should a business use free antivirus?
Avast Free Antivirus is one of the best free antivirus solutions for personal use. However, as it is not designed for use by organizations, meaning it does not include important business features or endpoint management tools like Patch Management. This need for advanced features is why free antivirus services for businesses will not provide an effective level of protection.
Is antivirus software necessary for small businesses?
Small business owners may feel that their company is too small to require business antivirus software as they don’t have many devices or believe they are too insignificant to be attacked. But many attack types are speculative and rely on targeting networks with known vulnerabilities – making small business antivirus an essential consideration.
Avast Business offers three solutions depending on the size of your business – Avast Essential Business Security, Avast Premium Business Security, and Avast Ultimate Business Security.
