With the acquisition of AVG last year, all AVG & Avast Business versions are utilizing the Avast Business A/V client with a new NEX-GEN Behavior Shield. Avast and AVG had independently been working on this shield for several years, and using the Avast’s Hardened Mode (whitelisting module), significantly increases protection against Crypto / Ransomware. These components are not available in the legacy Endpoint Protection versions. Also, Microsoft Windows 10 Spring Update (released) is not compatible with the legacy Endpoint clients. The user is prompted to uninstall Avast or the update will simply fail to install. Additionally, Endpoint has an End of Life for December 31st, 2018 where VPS updates will cease. I want to make sure that we get started on a migration, as this is included in your subscription at no charge, and the increase in protection is dramatic! I will assist you in creating groups and templates for testing using J.R’s best practices. You will be able to continue using Avast Endpoint Protection on those systems for your license term.
For the Avast Business, there are options for either cloud or on-premises management consoles as well as stand-alone unmanaged installs. The cloud console is the recommended and all installers include a 30 day trial. Go here to register for the cloud console and receive your account activation by email. Once you have the console created, let me know, and I will have the migration license sent, while keeping your existence license live (dual licensing).
I can assist in the implementation and configuration of your Avast Business console using best practices. I would need about an hour of your time to go through the console with you. Prerequisites are for you to have at least 1 system installed and activated.
I have finalized the migration documentation for the Avast Endpoint to Business Antivirus: XML importer is not working correctly yet:
