Become an Avast channel partner through AvertIT Distribution

Johannesburg, 15 Apr 2024

Offer your clients the best in anti-virus software and cyber security when you partner with acclaimed distributor AvertIT Distribution as a reseller of the trusted Avast and AVG products.

These premium products guarantee top-notch cyber security software for homes and businesses. This gives you and your clients absolute confidence in the protection of their data, devices, networks and software.

Avast is recognised as providing some of the most advanced, affordable and effective protection against data breaches, malware, phishing and other cyber attacks.

What sets Avast apart in cyber security?

Avast Software and AVG Technologies have been incorporated into one company, Avast. It is an FTSE 100 company with an impressive global reach. In fact, as of July 2022, Avast has over 435 million satisfied users.

Avast and AVG offer a variety of solutions that protect Windows, Mac, Android and Apple devices, blocking over 1.5 billion threats every month. This translates into its protecting against more than 570 threats every second of the day – around the clock and around the world.

Avast offers cyber security that is seven layers deep, which means these anti-virus products actively protect the following aspects of your clients’ organisation:

  • Data
  • Communications
  • Technology
  • People
  • Processes
  • Operations
  • Environment

All the anti-virus and cyber security solutions are entirely cloud-based and managed from one central hub. This is crucial, as global business operations move towards being cloud-based and demand a scalable, flexible solution within this ever-evolving environment. Conventional firewalls simply can’t provide the protection that is required.

Avast has also been awarded numerous awards, testifying to its power and efficiency as a premium anti-virus and cyber security solution.

Some of Avast’s recent awards:

  • Winner of the Best Free Anti-Malware Award by SE Labs in 2020
  • Winner of CyberSecurity Breakthrough’s 2020 Antivirus Software of the Year Award
  • Outstanding Security Product by AV-Comparatives in 2021
  • Awarded Top-Rated Product by AV-Test in 2021
  • Awarded Top-Rated Product 2022 by AV-Comparatives
  • Avast Ultimate Business Security awarded Best Protection award for Corporate Users in 2023
  • Avast Ultimate Business Security received the Top Product award from AV-TEST mbH for January/February 2024 and perfect 6.0/6.0 scores on Protection and Performance

Avast’s comprehensive business product ranges:

  • Essential Business Security
  • Premium Business Security
  • Ultimate Business Security
  • Business Antivirus Pro
  • Business Antivirus Pro Plus
  • Patch Management

Also, in a significant stride towards enhanced cyber security, Avast Business has officially released Web Control for clients with Premium or Ultimate security. This innovative feature introduces browser-based content filtering, allowing users to wield greater control over their online experience.

Web filtering has evolved into a pivotal component of modern cyber security strategies. Organisations commonly leverage web filtering to:

Block malicious websites: In the ever-evolving landscape of cyber threats, blocking access to known phishing, malware distribution or cyber threat hubs is paramount. Avast's Web Control adds an extra layer of defence by seamlessly preventing users from entering these dangerous online territories, reducing the risk of security breaches significantly.

Enforce compliance: Maintaining a secure online environment often involves enforcing company policies. Avast's Web Control empowers organisations to ensure adherence to these policies by restricting access to inappropriate or non-compliant content. This feature is especially crucial for industries with strict regulatory requirements, such as finance or healthcare.

Optimise bandwidth: Bandwidth-intensive websites can bog down network performance, affecting the user experience for everyone. Avast's Web Control comes to the rescue by limiting access to such websites, optimising overall network performance and ensuring a smoother online experience for all users.

Protect against legal liabilities: In today's litigious society, organisations must mitigate legal risks associated with online activities. Avast's Web Control contributes to this effort by preventing access to websites hosting illegal or inappropriate content, maintaining a safe and compliant online environment. This not only safeguards the organisation, but also helps in building a responsible digital presence.

Empowering users with Avast Web Control: Web Control is not just a feature; it's a game-changer. Users can now seamlessly manage and monitor web content access, taking their cyber security measures to new heights. This release comes with a host of robust features and functionalities, providing organisations with a powerful tool to tailor their online environments according to their policies and needs.

Web Control allows you to:

  • Filter web content
  • Enhance productivity
  • Strengthen security
  • Policy customisation
  • Reporting
  • Alerts
