Securing with a single software solution multiple workstations and servers that may be well apart from each other may seem a bit far-fetched. Nonetheless, there are some utilities that are tailored specifically for this job and avast! Endpoint Protection Suite Plus is one of them.
Once the installation procedure is complete, you will be able to get to know this suite up close and personal, but not before rebooting the system. This is required so that some components, like the built-in firewall, can be properly initialized.
A quick glance at the GUI will convince you of its ease of use, thanks to the well organized layout, which makes accessing any function of avast! Endpoint Protection Suite Plus a breeze.
Inside the 'Security' area of the application you can find all the available modules and the 'Antivirus' section is perhaps the best represented one. It features several scanning modes and loads of 'Shields' like those for file system, mail, network, script, behavior, web, P2P and IM protection.
Each of these components can be configured individually and in its corresponding tab you will get a real-time graph showing the traffic for the monitored scope. In the same spot, you can check out some useful statistics regarding detected infections, scanned objects, shield log and history.
avast! Endpoint Protection Suite Plus is fully equipped to provide mail filtering and traffic monitoring. Thus, the antispam module will take care of all incoming messages and, according to your preferences, will promptly mark and dispose of the unwanted emails.
Insofar as the network connections established by the system or by running apps, the firewall component will make sure no intrusions can occur on any of the servers, workstations or notebooks under its protective veil.
avast! Endpoint Protection Suite Plus provides a very strong collection of dedicated tools that work together in order to make the environment in which they are installed a secure one. With useful extras like its well-known Sandbox, or the SafeZone and Site Blocking features, this is indeed one complete suite for business users.
