The essential online protection you can’t go without

Wherever your employees are and whatever they’re doing online,
we keep their devices and data safe.

Prevent your data from being taken hostage

More layers equal better security. Our solutions deliver comprehensive security with multiple shields of protection that prevent ransomware and other cyberthreats.
Behavior Shield

Monitors processes on devices for suspicious behavior that may indicate the presence of malicious code.

File Shield

Scans programs and files on devices for threats before allowing them to be opened, run, modified, or saved.

Web Shield

Protects your system from threats while browsing the web.

Ransomware Shield

Stops ransomware and other unauthorized programs from changing, deleting, or encrypting business files inside protected folders. This feature shields documents and other designated folders from unwanted changes, creating an additional layer of security.


Always-on security for your devices

Get peace of mind with Avast’s award-winning business antivirus that’s rich with features, but won’t slow your business down.
Protection on every device

Get always-on security to keep your PCs, Mac computers, iPads, iPhones, Android devices, and Windows servers secure from viruses, spyware, phishing, ransomware, and other cyberthreats.

Protection from infected files and emails

Our File Shield protection scans opened or downloaded files to make sure they are malware-free. Our email protection inspects both incoming and outgoing emails to ensure they are also completely malware-free.

Avoid dangerous website

Block unsecured websites that can potentially try to infect your device, so you can finally browse safely.
