AVG safeguards you from accidentally opening infected files by placing them in quarantine. The antivirus intelligently collects data on new threats by harnessing the power of its giant user base and their PCs - but you can opt out of this feature if you want to. When AVG recognizes a problem quite often a Fix button will appear on your computer screen. If you give approval then AVG will attempt to correct the problem swiftly. AVG waits until your computer is not being used before it begins its scans to reduce hogging up resources. It is smart enough to ignore files that it has already approved. It has a game mode feature to ease your apprehension that a game will be interrupted by a scan. The Deep Scan feature is very unique. Deep Scan will run a new Boot-Time scan to discover potential threats before Windows starts.
Avast implements intelligent antivirus for detecting threats, viruses, malware, spyware, ransomware, and phishing attacks. A cool feature of Avast is the Wi-Fi Inspector. Wi-Fi inspector checks your router configuration to prevent threats on that front. Avast leverages the CyberCapture feature. Cyber Capture provides real-time threat detection. Questionable files found on your PC are sent to the Avast Threat Labs to be analyzed by our experts. These files will be quarantined if they are determined to be hazardous by the Avast Threat Labs. The Avast Passwords feature allows you to remember just one Master Password. Avast Passwords will remember all the other passwords across all devices! Avast has its own browser if you want it. The SafeZone Browser is a custom browser designed to enhance security for web browsing, banking, and shopping. See other features at Avast.com.

There are currently 3 choices for the AVG business solutions. The File Server Edition comes with file server security at the entry level which is nice because not all business antivirus solutions include file server protection in the entry level product. Another great feature is free business technical support is included. Remote management is built-in as well. The AVG Business Edition is the next level up. The mid-level product can leverage the cloud to assist in protecting against threats. Also this version includes things like a firewall and email scanning. If you want to nuke spam you will need the premium offering which is AVG Internet Security Business Edition.
Business / Endpoint Info:
