Everything you need to know about next-gen antivirus
How do I install and set up my new protection?
After purchasing, you will get a link to download your product or a link to the console. You will also get a licence code. Copy it as you will need it after opening the product for the first time. You can then modify the settings of your endpoint security but you don’t have to. Once installed, you are fully protected.
Why would I want to combine my next-gen antivirus with the Management Console?
A centralized management gives you the freedom to control all your devices from a single security platform. Moreover, with the reports in the console you will get even better insights into what is happening in your network.
Which endpoints does Avast protect?
Avast Business products are suitable for Windows operating systems, Mac OS, Linux, and Windows servers. Not all features are available for all devices, so please take a look at the protection recommended for your device.
What if I already use Avast endpoint protection and want to buy more seats or another product?
If your business has the Cloud Console already set up, please login and buy from the interface. That way you can manage all of your security solutions from the same place.
