The essential online protection you can’t go without

Wherever your employees are and whatever they’re doing online, we keep their devices and data safe.

Ransomware Protection

Prevent your data from being taken hostage

More layers equal better security. Our solutions deliver comprehensive security with multiple shields of protection that prevent ransomware and other cyberthreats.

Behavior Shield
Monitors processes on devices for suspicious behavior that may indicate the presence of malicious code.
File Shield
Scans programs and files on devices for threats before allowing them to be opened, run, modified, or saved.
Web Shield
Protects your system from threats while browsing the web.
Ransomware Shield
Stops ransomware and other unauthorized programs from changing, deleting, or encrypting business files inside protected folders. This feature shields documents and other designated folders from unwanted changes, creating an additional layer of security.
Device Protection

Always-on security for your devices

Get peace of mind with Avast’s award-winning business antivirus that’s rich with features, but won’t slow your business down.

Protection of business devices
Get always-on security to keep your PCs, Mac computers, and Windows servers secure from viruses, spyware, phishing, ransomware, and other cyberthreats.
Protection from infected files and emails
Our File Shield protection scans opened or downloaded files to make sure they are malware-free. Our email protection inspects both incoming and outgoing emails to ensure they are also completely malware-free.
Avoid dangerous websites
Block unsecured websites that can potentially try to infect your device, so your employees can browse safely.
Data Protection

Keep your business and customer data safe

Not having the right protection can cost your business time and money, and result in the loss of sensitive information. Protect your business and customer data from cybercriminals with Avast.

Prevent hackers from accessing your data
Remote access attacks are on the rise. We prevent hackers from taking control of your employee’s PCs so that they can’t infect it with malware or lock files with ransomware.
Avoid data loss
Our firewall and network inspection tools can block attempted intrusions by hackers and prevent sensitive data from leaving your PC. It monitors all network traffic between your employee’s PCs and the outside world to protect your business from unauthorized communication and intrusions.
Enhanced data protection
Our Behavior Shield protects against zero-second threats, malicious programs, and cyberspying on passwords and bank account details. Rest assured that your personal, business, and customer information is safe from ransomware attacks.
