All-in-one protection for small businesses, entrepreneurs, and home offices

We are pleased to announce the launch of Avast Business Small Office Protection, a solution for small businesses that provides robust, real-time cyber protection that’s easy to install and cost-effective. Securing up to 10 business devices, the product is ideal for entrepreneurs and home offices.

Entrepreneurs and small business owners are increasingly aware of the risks of cyberattacks, with the U.S. Small Business Administration reporting 88 percent feeling vulnerable. However, budget, time, and IT expertise constraints often prevent them from investing in business-ready cybersecurity. 

Small Office Protection by Avast Business is an all-in-one security solution for small businesses that protects all types of devices, protecting a maximum of 10 separate devices on any platform. Avast Business Small Office Protection works seamlessly with existing hardware, and includes advanced features that help prevent data breaches, fraud, financial data theft, and hacking – all while helping to boost employee productivity with features such as RAM Boost to speed up devices.

Features for PC and Mac devices

  • Ransomware Shield: Prevents ransomware and other malicious software from harming files in protected folders 
  • Email Shield: Continuously checks incoming and outgoing emails to ensure they are malware-free 
  • Data Shredder: Permanently deletes confidential files that contain financial or customer data that don’t need to be recovered 
  • Remote Access Shield (Windows only): Blocks unwanted remote connections to prevent Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) exploits, which often are abused for ransomware attacks, and brute-force attacks

Features for Android and iOS operating software

  • Wi-Fi Security: Checks the security of any Wi-Fi network, public or private, before connecting
  • Password Leak: Monitors unlimited email addresses for password leaks
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN): Lets the user privately browse the web

Avast Business Small Office Protection does not require expert IT skills for installation and operation. Installation is simple and quick, and no further management or maintenance is required – perfect for the time-pressured small business owner.

Vita Santrucek, General Manager, Avast Business, noted, “Small business owners are aware of the need to protect their companies from cyber-threats, but find that there is simply not enough time in the day to research the innumerable products on the market. Our new product is designed to offer complete defense from cyber-threats with minimal set-up, zero maintenance, and no IT expertise required.”
