Avast Endpoint Protection
How are TSA Scores determined?
The Software Authority strives to be different! Our results are based on factual data and you will never see a non-certified product that you never heard of being rated highly for the sole purpose of pushing sales like we often see on other review sites.
With increasing computer processor speeds being able to handle heavy workloads and improving performance significantly, TSA Scores are focused more on how well a security product protects your system from malware, viruses, and threats as opposed to how much system impact does this security product have. Reality is, if you obtain a nasty Ransomware virus as an example, does having a product that uses limited computer resources matter if you can no longer access your computer?
The TSA Score is determined by analyzing the latest review data from multiple independent testing laboratories, other reputable third party review sites and our many years of experience in the security software industry. The results from these sources are then inputted into a proprietary formula that determines the final TSA Score.

Avast Endpoint Protection
Pay only for features you need
Avast Endpoint Protection provides powerful security for all your endpoint PCs – without you having to pay anything extra for server protection.
Certified, fast, and light on system resources
Built upon our certified and award-winning antivirus engine, Avast Endpoint Protection provides not only strong protection but also Web-based central management/updating, remote installation, real-time security alerts, scheduled automatic scanning, and more.
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.
Save time and costs with remote management
Install and update remotely, to save both time and costs associated with traditional deployment at individual endpoints. For greater flexibility, we offer two management console options – our simple Small Office Administration for basic networks or our robust Enterprise Administration for complex networks.
Schedule scans, updates, and tasks for when employees don’t need to use their PCs to ensure that productivity isn’t hindered by maintenance. Maintaining your business security has never been more intuitive, worry-free, or efficient.
User interface (UI)
The Avast UI has been redesigned to keep up with modern navigation styles. Newbies will find it easy to use, while geeks are still able to access advanced customizable features.
Windows 10 compatible
Our latest Avast version 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.
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 rather than hours.
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 the latest definitions.
File reputation system
Now with more than 1 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. This technology is also used internally, to help the scanning engine make more intelligent decisions.
Our Behavior Shield now uses more sophisticated logic for determining – with greater precision – whether any running processes display any unusual behavior.
Provides an extra layer of security for you to run your applications in a virtual environment – where any attacks are contained instead of attacking your real PC.
