Focus on improving your business by using one of the fastest to manage security products on the market.

AVG is rated as one of the fastest network security products on the market by the experts at Tolly. Our easy-to-use console lets you manage your network security with just a few clicks and schedule a scan or clean a remote computer in less than a minute

AVG’s Admin widget is a simple tool that sits on your desktop. It immediately alerts you if there are any non-compliant machines and lets you take action with just a couple of clicks

Install protection on a remote computer

Thanks to AVG’s Network Installer, you can remotely install protection on any computer that’s on your network, and monitor the installation.

Automatically scan your network for viruses

Rest assured about keeping your network clean, thanks to the automatic scanning.

You can schedule regular automatic scans of individual computers, groups, or your entire network. Alternatively you can manually schedule a scan for a more hands on approach.

Monitor your whole network with our improved reporting tools

Our reporting tools allow you to easily monitor and optimize your business protection.

Our improved graphical reports let you view performance statistics and make improvements to your protection policies. You can view reports for your whole business, or create reports for specific computers and servers.

Prevent viruses from other networks spreading to your business

As soon as a computer connects to your network, it is checked for viruses and the protection is updated.

If an infection is found, AVG cleans the computer. If no protection is present, the computer will be flagged as non-compliant. The latest endpoint protection can then be automatically deployed and configured in line with the relevant policies for that user.

Automatically apply changes across your whole network

Thanks to direct integration with Active Directory and other LDAP services, policy tweaks to group or individual policies are automatically applied to every machine within that policy.

The Remote Administration package comprises four components that work together to deliver "one of the fastest products on the market … saving business owners and IT professionals valuable time", according to independent tests conducted by Tolly. You can download the full report here.

AVG Admin Console

The Admin Console gives you instant access to the status of every system that’s covered by AVG protection:

  • Display detailed statistics for any workstation using the new Microsoft SharePoint plugin
  • Remotely shut down, remediate, and restart infected or un(der)protected machines
  • Configure and run easy-to-use graphical status reports
  • Preview and print test results for any individual workstation
  • Configure regular scans, matching frequency to relative vulnerability of different individuals or groups as configured in your Active Directory or other LDAP service
  • Synchronizes directory policies with security settings
  • Schedule and deploy automatic updates for local, mobile, and remote workers, even when disconnected from the network
  • Customize endpoint notifications
  • Manage the contents of the virus vault

AVG Network Installer

The integrated Network installer enables you to add endpoints for remote installation and monitor installation status:

  • One-click network scan to discover unprotected endpoints
  • Export list of protected or unprotected endpoints for inclusion in reports
  • Initiate deployment of AVG protection to all unprotected endpoints
  • Add endpoints using domains or IP ranges

AVG DataCenter

The DataCenter is the primary data storage component for configuration and scheduling information, logs, reports, and policy information. It can be deployed using a number of different database systems:

  • Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • Oracle 10g/11g
  • MySQL 5

If you do not have an existing database infrastructure, AVG provides Firebird, which is appropriate for networks of up to 150 workstations, as a standard component of AVG network solutions.

AVG Admin Server

The Admin Server is used to secure communication between the AVG-protected endpoints and the AVG DataCenter on the server. All communications are encrypted.

  • Controls server settings and alerts on invalid SMTP logins
  • Acts as a proxy server to download and distribute updates to endpoints within the local network
  • Synchronizes firewall settings for optimized performance
  • Ensures efficient data storage methods for better control over database size
