Cool Features:

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.

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:

Avast Endpoint Protection is useful for small office networks up around 200 computers. The entry level product does not protect a server FYI. Endpoint Protection is only for workstations. You can do Remote Management from the administration console. From the console you can deploy, manage, and update the managed clients running on the network. Some of the other features include scheduling scan jobs, running reports, and monitoring network activity. If you want features like email security, file server security, etc you will need the Endpoint Protection Plus version.

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.

Detection:
