The strength of avast! Endpoint Protection Suite lies in the sheer number of techniques that it employs to keep your Windows endpoints malware-free. In addition to the standard virus signature definitions and heuristics, these techniques include behavioral protect, the ability to get up to the minute information about new threats from a huge cloud-based detectionnetwork, and even sandboxing to run suspect files in a way that means that they are unable to interact and cause any damage to your system.
Community-based Threat Detection Network
Thanks to Avast's threat network, a web site that has been found to be the source of malware by other users can be blocked instantly. The information held in the cloud also includes the number of times a particular website has been visited by other Avast users, and over what period of time. This enables the detection of what appear to be new web sites or ones that have been relatively few visitors - two characteristics which may indicate that the site is a malicious one. When these types of web sites are identified, the software can take further steps to protect you.
Streaming, Real-Time Virus Database Updates
As ever, the most fundamental protection comes from virus detection signatures - and Avast generates new signature files with impressive frequency. Your endpoints can download the signature files either directly from Avast or via a local update server on your own network. There is also an option to deploy mirrored update servers at your branch offices to reduce WAN traffic.
When your endpoints are set to update directly from Avast's servers, they can take advantage of a feature called streaming real-time updates: These are individual signatures pushed to your endpoints as soon as they are finished, rather than being bundled into signature update files which are pushed out just once or twice a day.
Our firewall stops hackers, using heuristic and behavioral analysis and a white list of safe applications. It offers improved logging for better details/stats and supports both IPv4 and new IPv6 networks.
It is perfect for business environments by offering ease of use and silent protection with minimum maintenance as well as the option for more advanced customization should the user of administrator require them.
