Cool Features:

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.

Cool Features:

Kaspersky provides some creative solutions! The Secure Connection technology assists in protecting data when you connect to public networks such as internet cafes. Secure Connection makes sure all sent & received data is encrypted & protected from theft or tracking. I do not know of any other antivirus that does this. The Kaspersky Installation Assistant will support you during the installation process of new programs from the internet. It will ensure that you install nothing extra besides the programs you have selected. The Safe Surf technology warns you about potentially malicious websites. URL Advisor uses cloud-based data to determine the reputation of websites. URL Advisor will display a color-coded icon to show you whether a link is trusted, suspicious or dangerous. File Shredder totally destroys unwanted files.

Business / Endpoint Info:

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:

Kaspersky offers a Small Office solution for less than 45 employees. Anything larger than 45+ employees will require their Endpoint Security solution. Let's talk about the Small Office solution first. This is designed to work out-of-the-box without much IT skills required. This does not mean that the product lacks the punch. Powerful security tools are included to connect any device you choose. Administrate the software from a single admin web page which will display the security status of all your devices. Activate Small Office on any device and have easy access to the Technical Support. Features include anti-phishing, anti-spam, anti-ransomware, backup and encryption. Secure email and web activity against hidden exploits and a malware. Possibly one of the coolest features of Small Office is the anti-cryptor. If you have ever heard of a crypto-locker the anti-cryptor defends against this kind of attack which can lock you out of your own files on the network and demand a ransom to unlock them. Protect Windows PCs, laptops, servers, Mac computers and Android mobile devices.
