Avira Endpoint Security for Small Business Wins ‘Approved Business Product Award’ From AV-Comparatives

Burlingame, California --- October 22, 2013 – Security expert Avira announced today that its Avira Endpoint Security for small business has won the 2013 ‘Approved Business Product Award’ from AV-Comparatives. The October 2013 Review of IT Security Suites for Business Users from AV-Comparatives was released last week.

The test scenario for this evaluation was designed to emulate a typical small business: a single-site company network running Windows Server 2012 and +/-25 client PCs running a mix of Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8.  This size of company probably would not have a full-time IT director, so AV-Comparatives evaluated installation and monitoring features of Avira’s software accordingly.  

Avira Endpoint Security impressed judges with its reliable and trouble-free operation during testing, its straightforward installation, and its clean interface. They further stated that both the MMC-based console and the client software will feel very familiar and comfortable to IT professionals, while non-expert administrators will require only minimal training.

“Avira’s industrial-grade detection rates and reliability, coupled with its consumer-friendly design and interfaces, makes it a perfect product for small businesses,” said Lance Jacobs, General Manager, North America for Avira. “Avira Endpoint Security protects both your PCs and your file server from viruses, worms, Trojans, adware, spyware and other malware – all under one simple user license. We are pleased to be recognized by AV-Comparatives for our outstanding small business security software.”
