Windows 10 compatible
Avast version 8 continues our support of the latest Windows platform. Microsoft Credential Guard and Microsoft Device Guard is not compatible with our End Point Protection line of products. We recommend using the lightweight, cloud-based Avast for Business instead.
File reputation system
Now with more than a billion unique files in our cloud, Avast 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.
Antivirus and anti-spyware engine
Our award-winning scanning engine protects against viruses, spyware, and other malicious agents, now with a new algorithm that is based on machine learning, which can process new-virus data in milliseconds.
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.
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.
