Avast Business is uniquely positioned to address the needs of the underserved SMB segment with its customized products
SANTA CLARA, California, July 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the global endpoint management market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Avast Business with the 2018 Global Growth Excellence Leadership Award. Frost & Sullivan noted Avast Business outpaced its peers in the fiercely competitive and crowded marketplace by leveraging its brand and channel partnerships, delivering innovations to managed service providers (MSPs), and focusing on the rapidly growing small- and medium-sized business (SMB) segment.
Avast Business was formed when Avast Software acquired AVG in October 2016 to add scale, technological depth, and geographical breadth to its business. With this acquisition, Avast is tapping the opportunities emerging from the Internet security segment as well as harnessing organizational efficiencies.
The new Avast Business offers a comprehensive set of advanced endpoint protection solutions as well as enhanced managed security solutions to simplify the task of securing businesses. The company's flagship solution, Managed Workplace, is a remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform that includes a broad range of services, including antivirus, identity service, backup and disaster recovery, a network operations center (NOC), patch management, and asset management.
Managed Workplace has undergone a steady stream of updates. The latest v11.0 update offers security assessment capabilities that helps MSPs measure their customers' security levels, and easily demonstrate to their customers where there are gaps in their security and what they can do to provide better protection. In addition to Managed Workplace, Avast Business' portfolio comprises CloudCare, which enables SMBs and channel partners to deliver a suite of online security services, including antivirus, content filtering, email security, and backup.
"With its modern platform and large footprint, Avast Business has proved itself a valuable partner to SMBs and MSPs that are looking to differentiate themselves and find new sources of revenue," noted Tony Massimini
