Avast Named a CRN Coolest Endpoint Security Provider

Avast Business portfolio recognized for meeting SMB security needs

Our new Avast Business endpoint security products are once again in the spotlight, highlighted in CRN’s 2018 Security 100 list of the 20 Coolest Endpoint Security Vendors.

We know that delivering enterprise-grade security protection on a small business budget is a top challenge.  Our new endpoint protection products – Avast Business Antivirus, Pro and Pro Plus – offer flexible, affordable, comprehensive protection for SMBs with a range of features and management options. And CRN took notice, praising Avast for launching “three new anti-virus offerings and three management offerings aimed at the SMB market. Anti-virus features include identity protection, password management, data protection services, and full endpoint protection for file, email, web and spam. The management offerings can help deliver remote monitoring and management, endpoint protection management, and site security assessment.”

We’re proud of our new product portfolio, but we didn’t do this alone. Our global channel and business customers are adopting and using these new products daily to stop SMB threats and to secure IT environments.  Here is a quick look how they are using the new Avast endpoint protection and management products:  

“We have a real success story to tell using the Avast Business products. Our biggest selling point is that we can take over an IT environment and show clients the power behind monitoring and management. We recently secured a new contract with a local city office that was using a very basic monitoring system. One of the things that convinced the customer to go with us was our proactive approach. The combination of Managed Workplace’s security assessment, antivirus, and proactive patch monitoring and management were key in winning the business.” -- John Quatto, Zobrio

“Using Avast Business CloudCare, we can easily deploy services from one cloud platform, continually monitor IT environments, and respond quickly using the remote support feature. With access to strong virus protection, monitoring, and reporting, we can find small issues before they become large ones.  CloudCare’s antivirus has caught many items that could have infected our clients’ systems. Using CloudCare just makes sense for our business model and client base. It’s a win-win.” -- Scott Feaster, LGK Computers

“With our exclusive focus on managed security, we couldn’t do what do without the Avast Business products. Using Managed Workplace with Pro Plus Antivirus, we have reduced onboarding time with the service plans, improved technician efficiency with security assessments, and added the strongest level of antivirus protection.  With endpoint protection and network management in one RMM platform, it’s the core of all our offerings.” -- Chris Hart, Boring Business Systems
