High-performance server protection compatible with all major operating systems, such as Windows 2012/2008/R2, 2003 Server.
Integrate your SharePoint
Our SharePoint Server plug-in integrates with SharePoint 2013/2010/2007/2003 Servers via Microsoft’s own AV interfaces.
Benefit from real-time protection
Your database will be continuously updated with the latest definitions in real-time via a connection to the Avast Virus Lab, rather than needing to wait for a traditional database update.
Be in control with real-time alerts
Our easy-to-navigate graphical user interface (GUI) offers a user-friendly central window to all program functions. Comprehensive reporting options provide adjustable parameters for what information gets reported and how often.
Simple and convenient licensing
Licenses can be purchased on a per-server basis (rather than per mailbox), for greater convenience.
User interface (UI)
The Avast UI has been redesigned to keep up with modern navigation styles.
The Remote Assistance feature allows Avast users to connect and share desktops with each other. This may be useful for technical support as well as for general administrative purpose.
Windows 10 compatible
Avast version 8 continues our support of the latest Windows platform.
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.
Streaming, real-time virus database updates
Each virus signature comes to you in real-time via connection to the Avast Virus Lab cloud, rather than needing to wait for a traditional virus-database update. Your database will be continuously updated with latest definitions.
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.
Real-time anti-rootkit protection
Prevents stealth malware (‘rootkits’) that, when loaded by the computer’s OS, are invisible to ordinary scanners.
Our Behavior Shield determines – with greater precision – whether any running processes are displaying any unusual behavior.
File System Shield
Real-time scanning of opened/executed files.
Scans all incoming/outgoing email for malware (a special plug-in is used for MS Outlook).
Scans all visited web pages, downloaded files, and java scripts. Thanks to the intelligent stream scanning feature, the Web Shield doesn’t slow your web browsing.
P2P Shield/IM Shield
Checks files downloaded via P2P programs and while using IM or “chat” programs.
Detects malicious scripts hidden in web pages and prevents them from hijacking and potentially damaging your computer.
