Product Watch: AVG Releases Pair Of SMB Security Solutions

Both products provide protection for file servers and for endpoint devices

AVG announced Tuesday that AVG Internet Security 2011 Business Edition and AVG Anti-Virus 2011 Business Edition, both intended for small and midsize companies, are available,

Both products provide protection for file servers and for endpoint devices (desktop and laptop computers). The Internet Security Suite also includes mail server protection, and endpoint anti-spam. According to the company, the new features reduce performance impact on systems and make the security software easier for small business IT to install and manage.

According to the company, AVG Business Edition is a good match for companies using Microsoft Windows, particularly "Internet-active companies performing a wide range of online activities involving banking or purchasing transactions and customer, supplier or partner communications."

New features in both products include "smart scanning" to skip over files known to be safe; and AVG's Threat Labs information about threats on websites that AVG presents a user from visiting; a one-click Auto-Fix button "to resolve common issues on individual workstations"; checking links exchanged in Facebook and MySpace when accessing these sites from a browser on a LAN or computer protected by AVG software"; a desktop widget giving administrators a summary view including non-compliant workstations, and of server workloads; and reducing installation to five clicks.

Additionally, AVG has enhanced other components and functions including AVG LinkScanner Surf-Shield, anti-rootkit protection, integration with Active Directory and the remote administration console for installing and managing AVG software across a company's network. The Remote Administration Console is not available within AVG's consumer or free products.

Pricing for a one-year, five seat license for AVG Internet Security Business Edition 2011 starts at $247.99. A one year, two seat license for AVG Anti-Virus 2011 Business Edition starts at $89.99.00 and a two-year, two-seat license starts at $134.99.
