Firewall Requirements

This Article Applies to:

  • Business Hub
  • Avast Business Cloud Console
  • Avast Business On-Premise Console
  • Avast Business Antivirus

For overall functionality, and to enable the Antivirus clients and/or the Management Consoles to authenticate/update, you must allow certain ports and URL addresses through your Firewall or Proxy Server.

Geoblocking

Avast web services are hosted in many countries around the world. Therefore, we do not recommend geoblocking in your firewall settings.

If geoblocking is necessary, we recommend you set URL Allow rules to supercede geoblocking, so Avast traffic can still be allowed.
