Overview

The new Avast Business small business solutions will provide greater value to our Business Hub customers with more available services at each level. Choose between Essential, Premium, and Ultimate Business Security to protect your business.

Upgrade paths

The new products will replace the current purchase methods for Antivirus, Pro, and Pro Plus. Each level of Antivirus will receive a free upgrade to the small business solution version.

  • Essential/Premium/Ultimate Business Security → Essential Business Security (with Antivirus Pro)
    • Recommended for MacOS users, because the additional services at the higher tiers are for Windows devices only
  • Essential/Premium/Ultimate Business Security Pro → Premium Business Security (with Antivirus Pro Plus, including VPN)
  • Essential/Premium/Ultimate Business Security Pro Plus → Ultimate Business Security (with Antivirus Pro Plus, including VPN and Patch Management)

While Patch Management is integrated at the highest tier, it is also available as an add-on service. Cloud Backup and Premium Remote Control are additional add-on services.
