Endpoint Protection Technologies


Antivirus and anti-spyware engine
An innovative scanning engine protects against viruses, spyware, and other malicious agents.

Real-time anti-rootkit protection
Prevents stealth malware (‘rootkits’) that, when loaded by the computer’s OS, are invisible to ordinary scanners.

New Streaming (real-time) virus database updates
Now you get each virus signature sent to you in real-time via a connection to the AVAST Virus Lab, rather than needing to wait for a traditional database update. Your database will be continuously updated with the latest definitions.

New File reputation system
FileRep lets you know whether a file is safe before you open it – determined in part by how many people have the file and how new the file is. The technology is also used internally, to help the scanning engine make more intelligent decisions.

improved! AutoSandbox
Suspicious programs are now automatically placed inside the avast! Sandbox. When the program finishes, a comprehensive report is generated and, based on the program’s behavior, you are given a recommendation on how to treat it in the future.

New Browser Sandboxing
Enabled by a single click of the mouse, it allows you to completely isolate the browser from the rest of the system – even if the browser gets hijacked, your system stays clean.

Improved WebRep
The version 7 browser plugins provide greater protection against phishing sites, including heuristic detection of new phishing sites. Also, we can now detect fake/planted SSL certificates, preventing man-in-the-middle attacks against https sites. Additionally, we have extended browser support to Appleâ„¢ Safariâ„¢.

Improved SafeZoneâ„¢
Available only in Pro Antivirus and Internet Security, our SafeZoneâ„¢, your ultimate clean and secure window for financial transactions, now auto-prompts you to move to the SafeZone from your regular browser.


Antispam for Microsoft Exchange servers 2007/2010 with the latest Service Pack.

Integrated protection for File server
Includes high-performance scanning, superior scalability, and support for clustering (even in active-active mode), and integrates perfectly with MS SharePoint via Microsoft‘s own Virus Scanning APIs.

SharePoint Server plugin
Tightly integrates with SharePoint 2001/2003/2007 Servers via Microsoft’s own antivirus interfaces.

Low resource usage
Stays light on system resources

Remote Management

More options for greater flexibility
To easily manage any of our Endpoint Protection software, choose one of two management console types. Each suits a different business environment and IT needs – here is a brief overview of the main differences.

Small Office Administration

  • Improved and easy-to-install management tool suitable to manage networks up to 200 PCs
  • Web-based administration console
  • One-level devices grouping
  • Easy-to –navigate graphical user interface (GUI)
  • Auto-discovery of new/unprotected (or ‘rogue’) PCs
  • Designed for companies with limited IT staff

Enterprise Administration

  • Effective management tool for networks of any size
  • Desktop application
  • Hierarchical devices structure according to your needs
  • Remote deployment available
  • Fast and automatic updates
  • Complex alerting management
  • Suitable solution for advanced IT administrators

Small Office Administration

Web-based console
Easy to use dashboard lists all current problems and recommended solutions.

Easy-to-navigate graphical user interface (GUI)
Offers a user-friendly central window to all program functions.

Remote installation and updates
Saves both time and costs associated with traditional deployment at individual end points.

Auto-discovery of new/unprotected (or ‘rogue’) PCs
Notifies you when potentially unprotected/harmful PCs connect to your company network.

Comprehensive reporting
Flexible selection of what information gets reported and how often.

Built for simplicity
Easy to use, even for people who are not IT experts.

Ability to schedule/run scanning jobs
Schedule scans to run at night or whenever you don‘t need to use your PC.

Real-time alerts
In the event of infection or other unauthorized activity, the central console receives immediate real-time alerts.

Enterprise Administration

avast! Enterprise Administration maintains managed devices in a tree structure, which can be based on, for example, the geographical or organizational structure of the network. This makes it possible also to assign appropriate administration access rights and policies. The tree can be built automatically or imported from a text file.

Discovery / Remote deployment
avast! Enterprise Administration enables unattended, remote deployment of avast! antivirus software, even spanning multiple domains. To reduce the potential for security breaches, it also enables discovery of new or ‘rogue’ machines on the company network.

avast! Enterprise Administration offers a wide range of graphical and tabular reports, which can be either generated and viewed directly in the Administration Console, or exported and saved in a variety of formats (e.g. PDF, HTML, DOC). Reporting can be scheduled daily, weekly, or whatever makes the most sense.

avast! Enterprise Administration notifies, via various customizable alerting methods, about the activity on your network. Set up notifications via email (using SMTP or MAPI), Windows network pop-up messages, or even have them sent to a network printer.

Automatic Updates
avast! Enterprise Administration updates incrementally, with only new data downloaded, to greatly reduce transfer time and bandwidth requirements. Any number of mirror servers can be set up to work in a hierarchy.

avast! Enterprise Administration complies with company security policies by allowing particular access rights to users and/or user groups. Each item (e.g. task, computer, event, computer group) has an access control list, with visibility set by the main administrator(s). All communications to the console are encrypted with SSL protocol and identified via a digital certificate.

Support for notebook users
avast! Enterprise Administration supports mobile devices, whose users connect almost randomly to the company network and often try to bypass restrictions set by the administrators. Initiated by POP client, updates are automatically downloaded and applied whenever a device connects to the company network – even if via VPN or over the internet.

How our avast! Endpoint Protection Suite licensing model works

avast! Endpoint Protection Suite is licensed on a per-node basis, which means that if you buy a license for 20 devices, you can use it on any combination of 20 devices – whether they are servers or endpoint PCs.


If you buy a 20-device license, it can be used on:

  • 20 endpoint PCs and 0 servers
  • 19 endpoint PCs and 1 server
  • 10 endpoint PCs and 10 servers
  • ...etc.

Server license

The server license covers connections limited to the number of devices you bought. That is, if you install server product on 20 servers, it will still have only 20 connections in total. For unlimited connections, we offer avast! File Server Security – recent recipient of Virus Bulletin’s VB100 Award.
