Cloud-managed antivirus for business

AVG Cloud Management Console is a cloud management platform that helps businesses improve efficiency and security within their company's managed computers. Real-time updates minimize security gaps, helping identify malware and ransomware threats before they infect your network.

With Cloud Management Console, the security of managed devices can be configured and monitored from one, central hub.

What is cloud-managed antivirus?

Cloud-managed antivirus improves protection and efficiency for businesses. This is done through centrally managed control via AVG Cloud Management Console.

Having real-time data means that patches can be applied quickly, and updates can be completed across your network’s computers without relying on employees to update their systems.

How cloud-managed antivirus works

Cloud-managed antivirus uses a management platform with two key elements:

  • A cloud-based web service that updates the cyberthreat detection database and blacklists of dangerous sites and software. This information is shared in real-time with a client’s local devices.
  • A client program. This is an antivirus scanner installed on local devices to scan for malware. Unlike a full local antivirus suite, this software is not that demanding on the local system. 

As the entire computer system's security can be monitored and managed from a central console, changes are quick and simply to apply, which contributes to more consistent protection across the business network.

Benefits of cloud-managed antivirus solutions

  • Cloud-managed antivirus can monitor endpoints across the network, helping stop malware and ransomware attacks before they spread.
  • Internet security scans, patches, and updates for the entire network’s endpoints can all be managed from the Cloud Management Console, a central hub, helping to eliminate gaps in your protection.
  • The low footprint of cloud-managed antivirus means that individual machines will not be slowed down as they might be when traditional antivirus software is performing scans or updating.
  • The responsibility for applying updates will be removed from individuals and can be automatically completed across the network’s endpoints at times when it will impact productivity the least.

Intuitive dashboard, simple controls - for an optimal user experience

  • Monitor all connected devices from a single dashboard.
  • Add devices, products, and services directly from the console.
  • Plan scans and updates to fit your schedule.

What is a cloud management service?

A cloud management service allows for the control of an endpoint antivirus using a cloud platform. A management service tool is used to maintain and optimize the configuration of services across a network’s computers for improved efficiency.

Why is cloud antivirus important for business?

Cloud-managed antivirus helps the entire business’ computers have protection by providing real-time virus definitions and automatically updating antivirus software so that every computer connected to the network has equal security.

Cloud-managed antivirus also reduces downtime caused by conducting manual updates on each device and helps minimize the risk of a computer being incorrectly updated and becoming a security weak point.
Centralized control means that the business network can be quickly amended and updated. A key functionality of cloud management platforms is creating group policies and scheduling tasks – all from a single, intuitive dashboard.

What are the benefits of cloud security management?

  • Scalability – Cloud security can be deployed over as many endpoints as required, making it flexible for when your business experiences changes in demand or has plans to expand.
  • Real-time updates – Cloud management is designed to make sure that every connected device is notified of new cyberthreats, helping to stop potential attacks as early as possible.
  • Device performance – Shifting the processing power demands of security software into the cloud means that computers will be under less strain, increasing resource and productivity
  • Increased cyberthreat protection – Cloud Management Console users have access to a large and rapidly updated cyberthreat database without the need to update or store locally.
