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.
